When you want to have a seat and stay for awhile, do so in a Morris chair. These chairs, originating in the late 1860s, serve as the inaugural reclining chairs and feature a deep seat and high armrests. In addition to maximizing comfort, these features give the chairs an old-fashioned appearance. The sloping hinged backs on these chairs enhance user comfort, as do two long, symmetrical arms, which adjust with pegs for several angles. Over time, these chairs grew into two separate types, traditional and mission, or craftsman. These chairs, products of American manufacturers, feature the same wooden finishes as traditional chairs, but have lighter finishes. You can find them mostly in oak, a readily available, sturdy, and affordable home furnishing material. Antique chairs come with minimal decorations, featuring a plain wood surface with a layer of glaze or polish. You can also find a Morris chair covered with leather or green, gray, and brown fabrics. You can add decorations to these chairs, such as pillows, throws, and shams. You can search for chairs on eBay, which has a large inventory to choose from.
