It may seem like a simple enough concept, however if you do not pick chairs that are the right height you may find yourself needing to either go through the hassle of returning multiple chairs or out of a lot of money. Be sure to measure your dining table prior to purchasing any chairs because this is will be the main factor in determining the seat height that will be necessary for your chairs. Most dining tables are between 28\" to 30\" high which will accommodate chair seat heights that are about 11\" shorter than that. Make sure that you take proper measurements of your potential dining chairs if shopping in a retail store or if you will be purchasing online look for the chair dimensions on the product page. If the dimensions are not listed be sure to ask the retailer to provide you with them.
Once you have determined the type of desk chair you need, you will then want to look at the features you will want included in your chair, including the option of casters or glides. Most office chairs come standard with rolling casters which allow you to move quickly and efficiently from one spot to another. Chairs that have glides are stationary, meaning they do not move unless you pick the chair up yourself. A desk chair with glides would be ideal for extended height applications where your work station is higher than a typical desk and you need a steady chair to work on your projects. Many architects, artists, painters, and lab personnel opt for this style of seating as their work requires them to sit still. Some chairs also come with the option of having pressure breaking casters, which lock to prevent movement while you work whenever pressure is exerted on the wheels.
Whoever invented accent chairs must have been a genius. A simple accent chair can be just the perfect place to sit down and put on your boots before leaving the house on a stormy day. It can also be a plush and comfy chaise, not exactly a sofa and not really a chair, but a piece of furniture that exudes luxury and invites prolonged lounging.
Accent chairs come in a variety of styles, sizes and materials. A large, an arm chair facing a sofa gives a living room an inviting conversation place. A richly upholstered chair is also multipurpose. It is great for just sitting around and listening to music, watching TV, catching up with email on a laptop, entertaining guests and just kicking off your shoes and relaxing for a few minutes at the end of a hectic day.
Next you will need to figure out the seat height range necessary for you to be able to keep your feet flat on the floor while working(or on a foot rest) and work with your height. You will also need to take into consideration the height of your desk to ensure your chair will fit underneath your desk if needed, especially if you would like a chair with armrests. Most standard desks are 29\" measured from the floor to the top of the desk, however some have higher workstations or adjustable desks that can be lowered and raised if needed. If you are a shorter individual a standard cylinder that comes with most office chairs may be too tall for you causing your legs to be bent at an awkward angle. The same can be said for taller individuals who need a longer cylinder and higher seat height adjustment range. Certain specialty ergonomic office chairs offer different cylinder size options to accommodate individuals of any height from children 4’ tall to adults that are 6’8\".
