The size or the scale of the chairs should also be considered while buying comfortable chairs for living rooms. Chairs which are too big or too small will appear extremely awkward when it is placed in the rooms. The size of the chairs should be appropriate enough not to draw too much attention away from the focal points in the living room. It should neither be too small in size. It should blend with the other furniture and enhance the décor of the room or home.
Australian chairs followed the designs of their European counterparts very closely, the major distinguishing factor being that our local cedar timber was not as hard or as tight grained as the mahogany used in England, and was prone to breaking through the short grain of the back legs or in the shallow turnings and tenons. Bearing these problems in mind, cedar chairs will often have larger proportions to allow for the lesser structural properties, and most examples show considerable wear to the legs, especially the front pair. Fine quality examples of Australian cedar chairs are made of select cuts of cedar utilising the closest and straightest grained timbers for strength and also for their similarity to mahogany. There was quite a prestige associated with being able to afford goods from abroad, primarily England.
