Types of Wooden chairs
Wooden chairs are perhaps one of the first few things made in the history of Indian wooden handicrafts.The highly durable wooden chairs are chiseled out of all types of wood. When perfectly designed, a wooden chair lends elegance and an aristocratic look to the room. The traditional wooden chairs were fine examples of wood carving. However, the contemporary furniture, which favors more straight lines and lesser details, have given birth to wooden chairs that have smooth wood finishes.

What is a Chair? A chair is a raised surface for sitting purpose. It is generally used by one person. The raised sitting surface is supported by four legs. A chair usually has arms and a backrest. Sometimes it has a footrest too- like in recliners. Chairs may sometimes have extended back that goes above the height of the occupant's head and can be called a headrest- like those on barber's chair. When the seat of chair is made in such a way that more than one person can sit on it, then it can be called a sofa, couch, bench or a love seat.

Types of Wooden Chairs The chairs are designed to meet different requirements – garden chairs, chairs with dining table, decorative chairs, arm chair, relaxing chairs etc. Wooden chairs are one of the high utility wood furniture- be it home, garden or office. Wooden chairs are available in multiple colors including various shades of natural wood and sometimes painted too. The wood chairs are designed keeping in mind the comfort of people who will sit on it and are therefore sometimes back padded and covered with cushions.

Wooden Folding Chairs
Folding wood chairs collapse in one or the other way for easy storage and transport. They have a rigid frame and a seat around a transverse axis so that the seat becomes parallel to the back and the frame collapses with a scissors action. Although there are specific outdoor chairs as can be found in garden furniture, many people prefer folding wooden chairs due to the convenience of storing them inside and protecting them from extreme weather conditions.

It typically swivels, tilts, and rolls about on casters, or small wheels. Office wood chairs may be upholstered with fabric or leather which make them executive chairs. Sometimes these chairs have low back and are called a steno chair. Office chairs often have many ergonomic adjustments, such as seat height, armrest height and width, and back reclining tension.

Wooden Dining Chairs
A dining chair is a typical side chair that comes with a seat and back but without armrests. Wooden dining chairs are designed to be used at wooden dining tables. These side chairs are also used as an occasional chair. Typically, dining chairs are part of a dining set in which the chairs and table have similar or complementary designs.

Wooden Garden Chairs
A garden chair or a lawn chair is generally a light, folding chair used as an outdoor furniture. It is also good to be placed on soft surfaces. In such types of wooden chairs, the left and right legs are joined along the ground into a single foot to make a broader contact area with the ground. Individual feet, that are present in traditional chairs, would otherwise dig into soft grass.
