In this article we're going to discuss what some people may consider the stereotypes of the kind of chairs that people choose to sit in. We've all seen the pictures, all through time. The mother sitting in a rocking chair holding her little baby rocking it to sleep. Or the grandfather sitting in his rocker, pipe in one hand and newspaper in the other rocking away the final days of his life in blissful peace. Perhaps you've seen the pictures of the little baby in a high chair eating his breakfast.
Chairs were developed rich carvings and polychromatic surface treatments for the important members of society, but by the mid 1650's chairs became common and were often upholstered. By the mid 1750's most carpenters and chair designers had got the message that the chair should not only look good, but should be actually be nice to sit on too, hence chairs that hugged the contours of the human body were produced. These chairs had bow shaped backs and curved legs, the arm rests were padded (and in many cases richly embroidered too). It was incidentally, during this period that the 'chaise lounge', the precursor of the sofa was developed, this being a chair on which a lady could recline.
One of the first decisions to make about seating for an outdoor wedding is placement. In some sites, there will be only one good arrangement, but if you are in a more wide open type of space, you will get to choose where you want the chairs to be. Think about things such as maximizing the views and the time of day. Be sure to avoid an arrangement that would put the sun directly into your guests' faces on a hot summer day. If there is no natural shade from trees, consider renting a tent for the guests to sit under. (Also a good insurance against rain if you do not have a backup location indoors.)
Consider the beach chair. Whenever we picture someone sitting in a beach chair, or more accurately reclining, it's always a young voluptuous long legged blonde gal. We seem to forget that old men and fat women sit in beach chairs as well. Of course there are some of us who don't forget. That's where the cartoonists and comics come in, depicting some 300 pound woman trying to get out of her beach chair and tipping it over in the process. We all get quite a kick out of that.
