Kelli Pope. Chairs. October 06th , 2017.
Chairs of all shapes and designs can be part of a living room furniture suite. Living room chairs can provide additional seating in the main area, such as facing a fireplace or home entertainment center. A chair or two and a small table placed in another part of the room, such as by a corner window, can provide a nice reading nook. Spending some time curled up with a good book in a big, beautiful leather accent chair can be very calming and restorative to the body and soul.
The single most overlooked feature to consider when looking at buying office chair is the base. It is standard for these chairs to have casters or wheels. However some chairs come with only four spokes, or for legs with wheels; others with five, or six. It is important to get a chair that has more than four legs. With only four legs, depending on the orientation of the chair, it can be easy to tip out of the chair. Because of the head rest, someone sitting in the chair will be inclined to sit back and lean back in the chair. If the chair has only four legs, i.e. a base with four wheels, if they are leaning back between two of the legs, the chair could tip over backwards. (The taller back of an executive chair makes this more likely than with a smaller, standard office chair.) With five or more wheels, the chair becomes more stable. Of course, the other determining factor of the stability is the width of the base. Again, high-end executive chairs will have a wider base.
Determine the Weight Rating - Standard office chairs are designed to hold up to 250 pounds. With the exception of specialty big and tall office chairs, with some that can hold up to 550 pounds, most office chairs you will find online can only hold a maximum weight of 250 pounds. If your weight requires a specialty chair, it is best to pay the extra money to get one otherwise your chair will not be under warranty and will exponentially increase the chances of it breaking much quicker. Big and tall office chairs are constructed with heavy-duty components, sometimes this even includes and all indestructible steel frame, and are specifically designed for tough environments. Every good office chair website will have a place on their product pages that explains the maximum capacity for each chair and if you are unable to find that information do not be afraid to ask.
Because they are sold at a cheaper price, people often assume that used chairs will not function to the same ability that a brand new chair would. The truth is, most will function just as efficiently and effective as a new chair. If the chair has been lightly used, the chair will most likely last as long as it is warranted for, which varies between different chair manufacturers. If purchasing a used chair from an internet retailer, again, if you have an apprehensions ask if the chair has any problems in functionality or design. Most internet retailers will not sell a chair as used unless it is in almost brand new condition; chairs that are defective or have problems are typically sent back to the original manufacturer for them to dispose of or take parts from, making purchasing online a much more reliable option. Brick and mortar stores may not fully examine a product for defects and will immediately put it back on their showroom floor after a return without prior inspection.
Got a lazy husband or grandpa? What better way to say happy holidays than with a brand new luxury recliner? Don’t worry, we know what you’re thinking. \"Eww! That’s too expensive!\" Well, believe it or not, there are tons of awesome new recliners out there for much less than $200. Companies like Flash Furniture and OFM have produced several modern recliners for home and business use. In addition, many of them also make cozy additions to living rooms, bedrooms, and man-caves as well. Chairs like the Power Rest Recliner by OFM can even double as a comfortable office chair. How’s that for a two-in-one gift?
