Chairs are greatly varied that it will be difficult to enumerate all of them. There are chairs used for a specific sport, or a specific place. But for starters, the more common types are the ones we see at home and at work. One of these is a rocking chair. It is also called "rocker" because it moves back and forth to rock the user. It has two curved or arched bands of wood at the bottom, one attached on the two left legs and the other one is attached on the two right legs. The chair starts to rock back and forth when the user shifts weight or gently pushes the chair with his weight. It also rocks by itself when a user sits on it until the center of gravity is achieved hence giving the user a comfortable sitting position.
Contemporary chairs are found today not only in homes and apartments with contemporary décor, but as accent pieces along with more traditional design elements. But what makes a chair "contemporary" versus any other decorating style.
People work in offices must have exceptionally well-made chairs because of the extended time they spend sitting in them. Especially in today's driven workplaces, where working late has more or less become the norm, a good chair design is one that can keep the employee sitting comfortably, even after extended hours of usage. The new buzz word and shared as is ergonomics. That's just a fancy word that means that while the chair is comfortable, it also provides the proper back support.
Instead, use a modern chair in the sitting room as either a conversation piece or extra seating when there is company. These chairs can be purchased one at a time or can be purchased in pairs. They make a great statement when put on either side of a piece of modern art or an art deco table. It is easy to purchase this type of chair to match any art deco pieces that you have.
More types of chairs are rocking chairs and lounge chairs. Rocking chairs, also known as rockers, are not just for your grandparents. These pieces, with their curved bands at the bottom, also make wonderful accents to the room. Of course, you can also sit on them. Their rocking movements are relaxing. Wood versions are classic pieces and are perfect for the front porch. Lounge chairs, on the other hand, are made to provide comfort and relaxation. They come in a number of forms and styles. They can be placed in any room of your house. These types of chairs usually have a reclining feature. Other versions, however, come with ottomans that let you stretch out and feel much better.
