When it comes to furniture, there is a truly wide range of options to choose from. Whether for home use, office use, commercial use, religious use and any other type of usage required, the list of furniture items is vast. As such, the selection is based on the owner's preference. One of the categories of truly exquisite furniture pieces is an armless upholstered chair. There are several reasons why this is so and they will be discussed in the course of this article.
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.
