As I reflected on this pastor's statement, a couple of thoughts came to my mind. One is that his statement was a very personal one that indicated a preference that was important to him and was a value I needed to honor. An additional thought though was about what actually makes a chair a "church chair". Here is an expansion on those thoughts with three observations as to what really is needed for a chair to be labeled a "church chair".
Those who work in warm environments are sure to love this next category. Not only are mesh back chairs extremely affordable, but they also offer amazing comfort. Chairs in this category always feature mesh fabric backs for breathability. This allows cooling air flow to reach the chair's occupant while simultaneously providing substantial support. These chairs are also highly versatile as mesh back chairs with ergonomics for conference use, guest seating, and tasking purposes, have become incredibly popular in recent years. Chairs like the Wau Series High Back Mesh Chair by Eurotech are the epitome of high end luxury, making them perfect holiday gifts for any office environment.
A church chair is secondly a chair that is in compliance with any and all legal requirements that are in force in the particular jurisdiction where your church is located. We find that many churches are unaware that when a room reaches a specific number of people occupying it (you will have to contact your local officials to determine this limit for your area) rules can go into effect for your seating. For example, in some areas your chairs may be required to be "affixed" the floor. In other areas, the ability to effectively connect your chairs to each other may be non-negotiable. The fire-retardant requirements for the fabric and foam that make up a part your chairs may be stricter in some localities than others. The simple truth is that your chairs should be in compliance with those codes in force in your location. Please know again that this truth is not related to the appearance of your church chair. Instead it has everything to do with honoring authority.
