Chairs have been around for centuries, and only keep getting better. With the incorporation of new materials, technology, and ergonomic design, chairs are not only looking better, they feel much better. Chairs are essential pieces of equipment in any home, office, or public setting. And even though chairs are sometimes viewed as "just a piece of equipment", it doesn‘t mean that it has to be tasteless and uncomfortable. On the contrary, chairs on the market today are functional, comfortable, and are very affordable.
Consider the texture of the wood. A smooth finish is not only comfortable but aesthetically pleasing as well. Determine ease of use. The chair should easily open and close so you won‘t have trouble putting them up and storing them. Try sitting on the chair. Is the chair comfortable or not? The width of the seat and the height for the backrest should sufficiently offer ample seating comfort. Wooden chairs with cushioned seats are also great most especially if you‘re going to use the chairs for a lengthy game of cards. Determine the purpose for buying the chairs. Will they be placed on the balcony or are you going to use them for parties? You may need a sturdier and heavier chair if you‘re going to use it regularly on the patio. A lightweight version, however, would be fitting if you‘re planning to use the chairs only for special occasions.
In this same period, the balloon-back chair was also introduced, but not without problems as, again, the Australian cedar timber was not very kind to both designers and manufacturers alike. The balloon-back chair is certainly pleasing to the eye but, unfortunately, its weakness lies in where the balloon back joins the rear legs, along with the other problems that the traditional bar back may have had. They are an excellent chair but must certainly be treated with respect; that is, pick them up with both hands or by the back rail, not the splat. It only makes sense and, if considered, the balloon back chair must be weaker as the cresting rail (top rail) is often held with a single dowel on each side of the balloon as opposed to a tapered dovetail joint as seen on rail-back chairs of the period. These chairs mostly have turned legs, but occasionally the hoop and legs are carved; they were covered with sprung stuff over seats often in leather or simulated leather.
