One of the simplest pieces of furniture, a chair has been a classic piece of furniture for ages. Its main characteristics are usually two parts of a tough, durable material, connected by a 90-degree or more reclining angle, fixed on a framework that is fixed to the floor or a wall. It is a basic chair designed to be comfortable and made in such a way that can accommodate its user. A chair is an essential part of a living room, hallway, and even bedroom. Most chairs have arms and a back rest, and some even include storage for stools and/or other items.
A chair can be classified into different types, depending on how it is made and the way it reclines. The first type of chair is in the upright chair. This is most often found in the office and most common among the types of chairs seen in homes and offices. The chair features a frame that can be pushed back towards the back rest and it will collapse into a smaller shape, allowing the backrest to fold up. The backrest also features hinges, allowing it to fold up completely, into the base of the chair.
The second type is the sloped chair. This chair has the same frame as the upright chair, but it is designed to lean much more towards the back. In fact, most office chairs that are meant to be used by an office chairperson will have this characteristic. Most chairperson’s have arms, but they lean back far enough to extend them behind the chair instead of straight up towards the front. A chairperson can also have a small foot rest or armrest positioned below the chair that rests against a leg rest or armrest, giving a comfortable resting place for a weary leg.
The third type is called a chairperson cruiser. This chair is similar to a chairperson, but instead of folding up into the back, it folds forward in an almost U-shape. With a cruiser, the chair tends to be less mobile than an upright style. Many chairwoman and chairman styles also feature some sort of foot rest below the seat and an armrest on the top.
Some more heavy duty office chairs also fall into the fourth category of “fighting chairs”. These chairs have additional features that allow them to be more comfortable for a person who needs to stand for long periods of time. One feature common to all fighting chairs is the added lumbar support, which supports the lower back while the person sits in a fighting position. Another feature common to these types of chairs is the thick padding on the chair’s back, which helps relieve pressure on the legs, hips, and thighs. Lastly, most of these chairs have heavy duty, metal handles, which make it easy to bring the chair around the office or wherever it is needed.
Presiding officers, or CEOs, often use a leather executive chair. A leather chair has the advantage of not being as mobile as many other options, but if one person is seated in the chair, no one else can easily sit in it. Because the legs of the chair are so wide, there is very little room for one person to sit in the chair and be comfortable. Because of this, the leather chair is perfect for the Presiding Officer or CEO because they need to stand in the chair for long periods of time during meetings.
