While the bed and the sofa prove that sometimes classical lines and forms are best, the Chair has taken the prominent position as an object that can be re-fashioned a thousand different ways.  Not merely a place to sit or rest, the chair demands its own spotlight, acting as a stand-alone object or even a fashionable surface which can hold books or cushions. Ranging from the desk chair, to the armchair, to the dining room chair to the bedside table chair, any visitor is spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding how and on what to sit.
