After about four years of making do I broke down and bought a chair at one of those big box office stores. A high-back office chair looked so professional that I went with that style. I couldn't afford a leather chair like my dad had, so I went with a fabric-covered chair. I thought I'd really improved my seating arrangement. I had softened the seat, but I wasn't any more comfortable than I had been before. Sure I now had a swivel chair -- unlike any of my dining room chairs that I'd used, but the first one just didn't fit me. I have now been through more chairs I could almost start my own office chair store!
The rocking chair was first invented in the 18th century and it has provided millions of people a higher level of relaxation since then. Rocking chairs are pieces of furniture that defy the usual function of a chair. These chairs have legs that are poised over curved pieces of wood which makes it possible for the chair to sway forwards and backwards, setting the one sitting on it in a gentle rocking motion. Rocking chairs provide comfort that is beyond what is usually offered by traditional chairs or seats. The rocking of a rocking chair can provide relaxation and a whole new dimension of comfort for you and your family.
First you will need to decide how long you want to be able to use the chair. Some baby high chairs will fit a child that is not even able to sit up yet unassisted yet to a 1 year old. Like the Bumbo booster chair for example. It is a great chair for little ones because it supports your child almost like you were holding them. It curls around their legs and is cupped on the bottom to have a comfortable fit. Although this is a great baby booster seat, this chair will not be able to be used for long period of time. This chair does not have straps to connect it to a regular chair to insure that when your child starts to move around more they do not flip it over with them in it. So you will have to stay close at all times while your child is in this seat. Another example is the baby high chair; these chairs typically fit old children from 1 year and above. While these chairs are sturdy and can be used for a long period of time, putting a smaller child in them usually swallows them and is very uncomfortable at first. One of the final examples is the baby booster seat; this chair can be used from about 6 months old when a child typically can sit unassisted to 3+ years old. This chair can be used almost the entire time but it is typically flat chairs with little cushion or support on the side of the chair, but is still a great chair. You will just need to decide how long you want to be able to use this chair and if you want to purchase another when your child grows out of the chair.
Although most people typically associate cheaper prices with cheaper products, this does not hold true in the case of stacking chairs. While they are less in price than most other pieces of furniture, the need for a comfortable surface to sit on is not comprised in the design. Many come with a curved back rest with built-in lumbar support and a waterfall seat edge. For most guests that will be sitting in your chairs, this will be sufficient enough to provide them with enough support and a comfortable sitting experience for a few hours at a time. If your guests will be spending multiple hours at a time seated in your stacking chairs, it may be worth the investment to purchase stacking chairs with a padded seat(fabric, vinyl, or leather). Some more expensive stacking chairs even come with an adjustable lumbar support to properly position where the support will be needed specific to the individual's back and armrests.
Office chairs look as if they'd be easy to buy and use. I guess I've shown that to not be the case. I have bought what I thought were executive chairs, reception chairs, fabric chairs, leatherette chairs, chairs with arms and chairs without, a sitting ball, and I've even bought ergonomic chairs.
