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.
Also, our population was growing rapidly with barely enough skilled cabinetmakers to satisfy the growing demands of our young nation. The majority of chairs in this period were made with turned front legs, a convict (or trafalgar) style back and, occasionally, a carved back rail. The seats were often cane with a covered cushion for winter use and comfort; front seat rails were cross-grained on better quality chairs, as was sometimes the back rail. Drop in seats were also used in this period, but seldom seen after 1845.
Aside from some certain chairs in our house, most of our chair sitting time is spent on Office Chairs. This is one area of chair design and functionality that has come into its own over the last few years. Manufacturers are realizing that people want office chairs that provide comfort all day long and will not send you home with a back ache. Or perhaps you are concerned about the comfort of your clients that visit your office. Office chairs, although they don‘t always look like it has been designed with comfort in mind. Even if sitting for 2-3 hours in this chair, your body will love you. A good office chair should not be overlooked as an essential piece of equipment to not only your work but your well being.
