There are some things in life that you just own and think nothing about the history of its existence. You have items like the microwave, TV’s, CD’s, DVD’s, and even vehicles. Look around your home at the “stuff” you own. Do you know how it came to be?
Do you ever stop and wonder about the history of how it got to be what it currently is in your life? Most people reading this will say, “no, not really.” Then there are others that probably do think about the history.
Let’s take furniture for example. Every dwelling has some furniture, particularly a chair. Owning a chair in this modern age seems like nothing at all, right? The chair is a piece of furniture that you just take for granted that it’s been around forever. Or has it?
If you’ve ever visited a furniture store, you more than likely were overwhelmed at how many different types of chairs exist. What makes them different other than the apparent design? Why does one cost more than the other?
When it’s time to shop for a computer chair, that too can be a bit intimidating. Everyone wants a comfy computer chair because that is where a lot of people spend most of their time working. Believe it or not, there is a fantastic history behind every chair you sit in, and you are about to read all about it.
In this story, the main character is a computer chair. However, it would not be doing chairs justice if you didn’t get the chance to know its history and grow to appreciate chairs as more than just a unit used for sitting. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
Defining the Word Chair
Let’s travel all the way back to the 13th-century. The word “chair” began here under the name chaere. The word was English and came from the Old French chaiere, (seat, throne, chair ).
During the 12th century, there were thrones and pulpits dated as far back as times tell. Today, in modern times, you can still hear the term in the UK and other countries outside of the United States.
Moving forward to today, the chair is an item of furniture people use to sit on. Its everyday use is for one person. However, there are plenty large enough to seat more than one. Most chairs have four legs and come in many shapes and sizes.
The chair gets its support system from the legs and back. Some chairs only have only three legs that offer just as much support as those with four.
Chairs come in a wide variety of material, ranging from metal, wood and synthetic material such as plastic. Chairs may have extra padding or no padding whatsoever. The design of the fabric can be that of millions available around the world.
Chairs such as dining room chairs often have no padding but extensive wood carving designs that add to the decorations. The truth is, there are so many varieties of chairs that you would be utterly bored it that was the entire topic.
As most of you know, chairs without armrest or backs are stools. The same, but with a raised back, is a bar stool. Chairs that have arms on each side has the fitting name of an armchair, while those with reclining abilities, upholstery, and an extended footrest is what we know as the recliner.
Chairs that remain in a permanent spot such as theaters or trains are seats. Those found on airlines are simply, airline seats. If you are riding a horse, it is a saddle, as well as the name for the seat of a bicycle.
The automobile has a car seat or an infant seat. Chairs that have wheels, the wheelchair. One that we all enjoy, the swing. When there is only room for two, there is the padded, loveseat. For more than two, you have the setter, sofa, or couch as most call them.
The same as the loveseat or sofa yet has no padding known as a bench. A piece of furniture that is separate from a chair or sofa and padded is the ottoman, pouffe, or hassock.
Let’s go Back in History
The piece of furniture, the chair, has been in existence long before most items you have in your home. Or even homes before yours for that matter. For many, many years, the chair may have existed but not for a reason you know today.
“The chair” stood as a symbolic authority rather than for practical purposes. In Canada and the House of Commons in the UK, the chair is still widely used as a symbol when referring to the board of directors, committees, and academic departments all have a “chair or chairman.” Brilliant professorships carry the title, “chairs.”
As mentioned above, the 16th century is when the chair became an everyday piece of sitting. Before, people sat on stools, chests, and benches which were ordinary seats of daily life. There are only a limited number of chairs that exist from the eras before chairs became common and those are typically related to religious backgrounds.
The Egyptians Design
Chairs have been in existence since as far back as the Early Imperial Period of Egypt. Their chairs were designed with leather or cloth and made from carved wood. The height of the Egyptian chair was much lower than the chairs of modern time.
In ancient Egypt times, the chairs came from the crafted material of great splendor and richness. Typically, chair designs were of ebony and ivory, or of sculpted and gilded wood. The design was usually created with costly materials. The frame of the chairs were brilliant patterns and reinforced upon illustrations of the legs of beasts or the characters of captives.
In general speaking, the higher ranked an entity was, the taller and more extravagant was the chair he or she sat on and the nobler the honor. On splendor occasions, the ruler sat on a throne, often with a little footstool in front of it.
On average, most Egyptian families rarely had chairs, and if they did, it was usually the master of the family who sat on a chair. Among the wealthier, the chairs would be painted to resemble like the lavish mosaic and imprinted chairs of the rich, but the skill was usually poor.
China and Europe
China has a strong history of Buddhist stele ( marble) and mural designs dating as far back as the sixth century. Even though chairs such as these were available, it was rare for the Chinese to use the practice of sitting in chairs.
In the twelfth century, chairs became widespread in China. No one of considerable knowledge has been able to say why owning chairs suddenly became an adopted commodity. The most logical theory is the chairs were outgrown and replaced by native furniture, and it evolved from a stool used in camps introduced from Central Asia.
Scholars believe that the native furniture introduced to China in the seventh century by the Christian missionaries. They believe the chair was initiated to the Chinese descendants from India as simple Buddhist furniture.
In the modern China, unlike Japan or Korea, it is no longer customary to sit on floors. In Europe, due to significant measures of the Renaissance that the chair no longer was an honor of state and became a standard item for those who could afford to buy it.
Once the impression of privilege disappeared the chair quickly was in general use to all kind. At that point, the chair and its many designs, changed and advanced to replicate the fashion at the time.
America and the Production of Chairs
It was during the 1800’s that the chair became a standard household item in America with every family member typically having one to sit on around the dining room table. Factory manufacturing began making what people called “fancy chairs ” by 1830.
A well-known company, Sear, Roebuck, and Co. made it possible for people to purchase machined built sets of chairs. With the occurrence of the Revolution, chairs were no longer a limited item that only the privileged could afford.
Along rolled the 20th century and there was when technology advanced with the construction turning to different materials such as :
- Metal-legged chairs
- All-metal folding chairs
- Molded plastic chairs
- The slumber chairs
The recliner soon followed suit as the favorite “dads” chair due to television and radio. When the modern movement struck in the 1960’s, a new breed of chairs hit the scene, these were:
- Bean Bag Chairs
- The Butterfly Chair
- The egg-shaped chair that turned (the Pod chair)
In 1966, many types of plastic chairs came onto the scene. That is also the era when you began to see the favorite chairs made from plywood, laminate, polymer, and leather arrived. Mechanical technology advanced and chairs that could adjust, such as office chairs and massaging chairs lead the way to comfy desk chairs.
Design and ergonomics
When it comes to designing a chair, many factors determine the outcome. The chair’s design, its intended use and how comfortable it will be for the occupant is just a start. Others considerations such as;
- Folding ability
- Stacking Ability
- Stain Resistant
- Artistic Design
The actual intended use of the chair helps determine the seating position. What is known as a task chair is a label given to chairs for people who intend to use the chair that is work-related at a table or desk. These type chairs have a slight recline to them so that the occupant isn’t sitting too far from their work area.
Chairs designed for the dental profession have a necessary recline. Easy chairs or for watching movies or video game where the height is closer to where the screen is even with the occupant. Chairs designed for comfort allocates the weight of the individual to different parts of their body.
For instance, a chair that has a seat that sits up high will result in the feet dangling down which applies pressure to the underpart of the knee. It could also mean that no weight on the feet causing the weight to flow elsewhere. If the lower seat shifts too much, it will place too much pressure on the tailbone region.
With a chair that reclines, the seat and back will naturally shift the weight to an occupants back area. While this position is suitable for those who like the bulk of their weight moved to this area, it could prove to be problematic for those with a bad back.

All in all, if the individual needs to sit for an extended time, the weight needs to be removed away from the rear-end region. With this comes the purpose of the “easy chair.” Chairs that are intended for long periods of sitting are usually slightly reclined.
However, chairs such as these are not suitable for eating at the table or for work. The back portion of the chair can support the majority of the weight of the individual, which reduces the pressure to the other regions of the body.
Typically, the backrest is available in three heights. The lower backrest supports only the lumbar area. Shoulder height backrest supports the entire back and shoulders. The headrest supports the head as well and comes stocked with vehicle seats to prevent whiplash in the event of an accident.
Chairs that recline typically have at least backrest that is shoulder-height to shift the weight to the shoulders instead of only the lower back. There are also chairs that come with a built-in footrest. A stool or other types of everyday chairs may come with a simple straight or a curved bar close to the bottom for users to place their feet on while sitting.
Choosing Comfort or Design
Chairs that come with two curbed pieces of wood connected to the bottom of the legs and can rock back and forth are known as rockers.
The “kneeling chair” adds an extra part to support the body, the knees. The “sit-stand” type of chair allocates the majority of the weight of the individual to the feet.
Many different chairs have cushions or padding. The padding can be either on the seat or both the seat and the back. Some chairs have cushions or/and padding on the footrest or armrest as well. Unless the chair is exceptionally soft, padding will not cause the person weight to shift.
Wooden chairs without padding will cause the individual to distribute their weight unevenly due to the chair being small and often hard and uncomfortable. The main reason for this is that having to spread the same amount of body weight over a smaller area of a hard surface.
Instead of padding, material such as wicker that is flexible is an excellent choice because it allows all the body weight to spread evenly. Chairs that have cushioning that has the same density back and the front will have a soft feel in the back region but will feel hard under the knees. For outdoor chairs, padding is often not the best choice. Furniture of this type usually has broader backs and seats with large armrest.
Different varieties of chairs determine whether armrest are a necessity. Chairs may or may not need armrest. Chairs that have armrest are “armchairs.” A chair that has armrest provide support to the body by allowing the individual to apply part of their body weight onto the arms.
Another perk for armrest is that it allows the entrance and exit from the chair much more manageable. Armrest adds support to the forearm instead of the delicate elbow region. For this reason, you will find that the armrest never extends to the back of the chair, missing the elbow area.
Other types of seats such as a bench and the couch where there are seats next to the other may have an armrest in between the seats or in between at the center.The types that have an armrest in between are for both comfort and privacy such as those found in public places and public transportation.
There are public areas that have seating such as park benches that have this design to prevent people from using the seats as areas to sleep. Armrests prevent both undesired and desired closeness between individuals seated side by side. Take the loveseat, for example, has no armrest separating the two seating positions.
Different Types of Seats
Various types of seats made from molded plastic (polypropylene ) with stainless steel legs are prevalent in areas where water activities take places such as pools and beach areas. There are many different chair seat varieties, and many often do not match the material of the back of the design of the chair.
- Some systems include:
- Center seats that have a solid material as the chair seat
- Solid wood, may or may not contour to fit the human body
- Wood slats, often the design of outdoor chairs
- Padded leather, typically a flat wooden base covered with padding and covered in soft leather
- Stuffed fabric, similar to quilted leather
- Metal seats of open or solid designs
- Molded plastic
- Stone, often marble
Open center seats that have a smooth, soft material attached to the tops of chair
- Wicker, woven to provide a surface with the ability to “give.”
- Leather that may come with a design
- Fabric, simple covering without support
- Tape, wide fabric tape woven into seats, such as lawn chairs
- Ash, Oak, hickory strips or splint, woven
- Metal mesh, wire or metal twisted to form seat
The Desk Chair and the Exercise Ball
While it is true that the majority of individuals spend most of their day sitting, the desk chair is one of the most important pieces of furniture you will ever need. Did you know there is a “desk chair” used throughout offices, the exercise ball chair?
If you haven’t heard of this new breed of the desk chair, don’t feel bad, not everyone has. It seems only those more willing to try diversity has given the bouncing chair a try.
Just as the name states, the “exercise ball chair” is precisely what the title says. It is a desk chair that instead of having a traditional seat, it has a professional exercise ball for the user to sit on.
For a good reason, many of you are tilting your head trying to get the picture in your head of how a person can work all days while sitting on a ball. Well, like most desk chairs the idea came from someone tired of having a sore back and hips from sitting all day.
Now that you have wrapped your brain around the image, it’s not so hard to fathom, right? I mean, how can sitting on an item that allows you to relax, comfortably, with your weight and body balanced by something incredibly soft instead of a hard seat be, anyway?
The first time to try the exercise ball chair while at your desk, you will first experience your back being really straight. Like most people that slump over their desk all day, this will probably feel awkward and delightful at the same time.
Your first experience may even cause your rear to ache a bit because you have sat in a slump for as long as you have had a job which for most its been years. So needless to say, straightening your spine and tailbone will ache a bit.
However, if you can hang in there a few days you will more than likely find that is beginning to feel good. You can start sitting for more extended periods on the ball desk chair. You may find yourself switching back and forth between the exercise ball chair and your regular chair until you can train yourself to use your new toy full time.

Positive Things Users Say
- You can bounce on the chair while reading, working or when a great song comes on
- You can bounce on the chair when you get tense, stressed or frustrated
- If you’re a physical/ kinesthetic learning type, bouncing on the ball might stimulate your thinking.
- Whenever you need to stretch, you can lean to the back or the side when in need.
- Exercise while you work. The manual provides some fitness ball exercises you can while at your desk.
The Lesser Positive Points
- Even though height adjusters are available for these chairs, depending on your desk dynamics, the ball may be too high or too low to reach your keyboard and desktop. You could very well end up having to adjust your entire workstation.
- You can’t just lean back in this chair and relax.
- If you bounce too much, your body may become sore, and headaches are a possibility.
- The plastic of the ball tends to get sticky in warm climates
All in all, if you get nothing more than sitting taller and a good workout while getting paid, using the exercise ball chair could have its advantages. However, it could easily just be another fad that comes and goes as fast as you can bounce.
Chairs that Changed the World
As mentioned throughout this article, there are ways that a chair can be a living link to years of the past. So far we have discussed the invention of many chairs available today. But, there are still a few more than literally changed the world.
Some chairs have their own unique purpose in life such as strollers, wheelchairs, folding chairs and swings. Each of these changed the world in their own way which is why they each have extensive historical roots.
The following seven inventions are the most influential chairs throughout history.
1). The Klismos Chair: The Greek klismos, dates back to the fifth century B.C., and is noted as one of the most elegant chairs ever invented. Its sleek style has seen faux imitations throughout times by designers such Michael Graves for the JCPenney Corporation.
2). The Windsor Chair: This chair gained its spot on the countdown mainly due to its connections to George Washington. Having owned more than two dozen Windsor chairs, the former President of the United States refused to have any other design. Whether designed by today’s automated factory or the cottage industry, the Windsor incorporates lightness, comfort, and simplicity all in one.
3). The French Fauteuil à la Reine: Furniture in the 18th century establish this to be the golden age for those who were “well off” providing the ability to buy the best. It was at this time that the French fauteuil made its way onto the elite stage of furnishings. Eliqoutly crafted, and upholstered in finely woven fabric with padding in the right places made this the chair to own.
4). No. 14 Bentwood Café Chair: The chair that gained the reputation of being the Henry Ford of chairs in 1859 unveiled the first mass-produced chair-the No.14 café chair. When shipped, the chair was flat needing only six pieces of the namesake, bentwood, with ten screws and just two washers.
5). The Cesca Chair: The German art school, the Bauhaus, is responsible for numerous memorable chairs, including the classic Cesca by Marcel Breuer. The Cesca was one of the first tubular steel designs that made the spring action design possible. The seat design, woven cane, came with or without arms.
6). The Round Chair: Chair lovers around the world are probably Han’s Wegner biggest fans. The Round Chair, as simple as the name, is anything but simple. Danish modern furniture combined industrialized craftsmanship with modern production to create one of the most stylish chairs ever produced. The round chair is a classic example of breathtaking beauty with stunning shaped wood and a caned seat.
7). The Monobloc Plastic Chair: In the 1980’s an invention took the world by storm. Just when you thought you’d never be able to sit by the pool in a chair in comes the one-piece plastic chair. Yards all over proudly put on display their owner’s obsession with the plastic, stackable chair. Besides being dirt cheap, the plastic chair is virtually indestructible. The genius idea to create one big chair and remove all joints made some inventor a ton of money that they are still racking in today.
The Glamor World Of Office Chairs

As most people have a standard desk chair, there are others that go above and beyond for their office to have the comfort of a recliner in the chair they sit in for at least 40 hours a week.

What to Look For in a Desk Chair
Office desk chairs are a vital part of the décor of every office, and many try to ensure they look good instead of worrying about the influences their chair will have on their health.
The design or effect on the human body the chair will provide should be the leading consideration above everything else.
- Lumbar Support: A beneficial desk chair will offer support to the lower back. Some of the higher quality chairs will even provide adjustable lumbar support that permits the user to fit the actual chair around their lower back. That is an essential feature for preventing severe back strain that will worsen by becoming sciatica, a debilitating condition.
- Adjustability: Most desk chairs have an arm and height adjustment. However, neither of these features are the most crucial adjustments to consider when shopping for a desk chair. The best desk chairs come with at least five adjustments while some even have up to 14 varieties. Vital features that you should shop for in adjustments are the back and seat angle, tension control, height and arm width, lumbar support, and tension control. Most supports are the standard dial control. However, some provide a pump that resembles a blood pressure type pump.
- Wheel Base: Most all desk chairs have a wheel design base. However, if your office has carpet you probably need to buy a chair with wheels made for carpet. Rolling with ease is vital for preventing back and neck strain due to having to reach too far across your workspace.
- Swivel Base: It is crucial that you choose a chair that swivels with ease to prevent stretching and straining. If your desk doesn’t rotate simply you will cause fatigue to your neck and arms due to overextending.
- Fabric: The fabric plays a more significant role than what most consumers understand. It must be breathable to prevent the chair from being too uncomfortable from getting hot. Also, it needs to have enough cushion for support to the individual without the base of the chair touching the tailbone.

Q: Why are body inspired chairs important?
A: Most people spend at least eight hours per day at work. If your chair doesn’t provide comfort and support to the structure of your body, over time, your joints and muscles will be affected.
Q: What feature should a desk chair have?
A: For a desk chair to be comfortable and work positively on your body structure it should be appropriate in depth and height of the user. The backrest needs to be adjustable as well as offer support to the lumbar and elbow areas.
Q: Is it true that the more a chair cost, the better results it will have?
A: No, not necessarily. You can spend a lot of money on a chair and only get one that merely looks great sitting in an office parlor. Chairs that have an expensive price tag usually are that fancy due to the brand rather the dynamics.
