Why So Comfortable?
Why is my chair so comfortable? Several reasons:
All of these factors, taken together, result in a chair so comfortable that it is quite extraordinary to folks who sit in it for the first time. This photo shows some of the reasons for this comfort level.
If you look at the back brace, where it exits the seat you will see a dark strip of wood that gets thinner as you look toward the top. This is one of five wedges that are incorporated into each back brace. This renders the center of the back brace flexible while keeping the ends incredibly strong.
Also, looking at the seat where the back braces enter, you will note that there is a space behind the back brace. This space allows each back brace to move to the back without stress when someone sits in the chair.
You can also see clearly that the back braces are NOT in a straight line, as they are in many chairs, but instead take quite a nice curvature from one side to another. I always say "Your back is not flat - why should the back of your chair be?"
If you should have any questions please do not hesitate to drop me a note.
