Chair. Saturday , January 06th , 2018 - 15:58:50 PM
Sitting in an armless office chair does take some getting used to and may take a few weeks to get completely comfortable. If you are considering making the switch but are still unsure if you will be happy with a new armless office chair, contemplate taking your arms off your current chair to test out the feeling. This will provide you with a free determinant for your decision to purchase a new armless chair by eliminating the possibility of having to return a chair because you are uncomfortable with the absence of arms.
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.
Australian chairs followed the designs of their European counterparts very closely, the major distinguishing factor being that our local cedar timber was not as hard or as tight grained as the mahogany used in England, and was prone to breaking through the short grain of the back legs or in the shallow turnings and tenons. Bearing these problems in mind, cedar chairs will often have larger proportions to allow for the lesser structural properties, and most examples show considerable wear to the legs, especially the front pair. Fine quality examples of Australian cedar chairs are made of select cuts of cedar utilising the closest and straightest grained timbers for strength and also for their similarity to mahogany. There was quite a prestige associated with being able to afford goods from abroad, primarily England.
