After you determine the ideal height for the backrest of your chair, your next concern is making sure your thighs will fit properly on the seat. The average seat depth on any given office chair is typically about 19 inches deep, however, if you are taller most likely this means you have longer legs. Longer legs requires a longer seat to ensure that your thighs will fit properly across the entire length of the seat without a lot of extra room between the back of your knees and the edge of the seat. Some high end chair manufacturers such as ErgoCentric Seating have a special upgrade option that allows the user to choose a longer seat of 21 inches deep. Another great way to solve the problem of having a seat that is too short is to look for chairs that have a seat slider option. A seat slider allows the user to adjust the depth of the chair by pulling up on a lever generally located underneath the front of the seat. When this lever is pulled up, you can then bring the chair forward or back to make the seat either longer or shorter depending on your needs.
Start by looking at high back or executive office chairs because typically these chairs‘ back heights are higher than managers chairs or task chairs. You will want a chair that will provide complete upper back support in order to avoid shoulder or neck pain. Have a friend use a tape measurer to measure your back from the top of your shoulders down to where you would be seated on the office chair. After you have that measurement, look for the back height on the chair of your choice and see if it goes a few inches above your back height. If the back of the chair is shorter than your back height, the chair may not provide the support you will need.
Lightweight: Chiavari chairs are specifically designed to be lightweight. Each chair weighs 10-12 pounds regardless of material, and many models can be lifted with a single finger. Having lightweight chairs is important for your venue because it increases the ease with which your venue can be set up, which means you will be able to allocate your resources to matters that need more intensive attention instead of wasting your staff‘s time trying to move around heavier chairs. Clients also will not struggle should they need to move any of the chairs.
Now, if you have several months to work with before you need your chairs, there are a plethora of church chair fabric options available to you. These will primarily though be available from an actual manufacturer versus an importer purchasing church chairs from an Asian factory, importing them to the USA, and then marketing and selling them. A manufacturer will tend to offer many more fabric choices and options than a low-end importer. So let‘s focus on the fabric options available from a true church chair manufacturer.
