That question was asked of me recently by a pastor we were working with. He had contacted us regarding the worship seating needs of his church, he was operating with a very tight budget, and he wanted a church chair that featured a high degree of quality. As we conversed, I suggested one chair solution that we have placed in several churches that performs very well, possesses great quality and is easy on the budget. The pastor though, even though he loved the price and was pleased with the specifications of the chair, uttered the words above.
The materials the chair is made up is another important factor. Leather is the most common option for high-end executive chairs. Leather is both comfortable and elegant. The comfort comes from the temperature which leather maintains. It stays cool and does not get too hot to sit in for long periods of time. But, in cooler climates, leather does warm up to one's body temperature and does not stay too cool. While there are plenty of good models of cloth executive office chairs, they will all be considered second best to the leather models. In addition, one of the considerations of having a really nice office chair is to give off an impression of power. Leather often does this, because of the inherent cost.
A church chair is a chair that provides those in attendance at a worship service the ability to focus on the service itself versus continually dealing with discomfort because of the chairs they are sitting on. The reality is that when people attend a church service they want to be able to see what is going on, hear what is going on, and be able to choose to participate in what is taking place. But when the chair they are sitting on is uncomfortable, all of the above are affected negatively and will become a distraction for them throughout the worship service, versus something that enhances their overall experience. Please know the above truth is not related to the appearance of the chair. Instead it has everything to do with the comfort the chair provides.
