In my opinion, the second break-point in cabinet-making history is around 1835, when there were numerous changes in the styles of furniture influenced by many great designers. It was also the beginning of modern industrialisation, with the introduction of steam engines for power in the workshop, rather than horse-driven tread mills. This new technology drove a network of geared flat drive belts to give variations of speed used for rotating and band saws, and planers and lathes for cutting, planing, and turning timber for furniture manufacture. Also, our population was growing rapidly with barely enough skilled cabinetmakers to satisfy the growing demands of our young nation. The majority of chairs in this period were made with turned front legs, a convict (or trafalgar) style back and, occasionally, a carved back rail. The seats were often cane with a covered cushion for winter use and comfort; front seat rails were cross-grained on better quality chairs, as was sometimes the back rail. Drop in seats were also used in this period, but seldom seen after 1845.
Another factor that makes these chairs a good choice is the fact that they are easier to move around without being an encumbrance. For example, in an office setting, it is easier to push in and pull out armless chairs from the office table than it is to do so with a chair fitted with arms. A final point that should be mentioned is the affordability of these chairs relative to chairs fitted with arms of the same caliber; such upholstered chairs are definitely more affordable in this regard.
