Rattan is the most common kind of wicker that is used to make most of the wicker furniture including dining chairs. It is a fibrous material obtained from a plant similar to palm. Rattan is quite strong, flexible and very resistant to cracking and breaking. Stain, paint or varnish can be easily applied to furniture made from rattan. Furniture made from rattan can be easily painted in different colors to match your home décor. Among the strongest of the different types of wicker, rattan is commonly used to make dining chairs, dining tables, sofas, divans and other furniture.
I'd loved the Aeron chairs for years. They are ergonomic, in multiple sizes to fit any stature, and made of recycled materials that could be recycled at the end of the chairs' long life, but the price kept me away. After listening to several of my friends rave about their Aeron chairs it was finally time for me to give in to comfort. Herman Miller makes Aeron, and have they put thought into their creation!
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
