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".

How is it that some church chair dealers can advertise and offer "Free Shipping" on the chairs they sell, at least to some areas of the country? After all, trucking rates nationally have skyrocketed in recent years with high fuel costs and increasing government regulation and expensive equipment all contributing to this trend. When a company advertises that they provide free shipping on church chairs purchased from them to many states, and subsidized shipping to most other states, HOW are they able to do so? Are we really to believe that there are those who enjoy incurring all the expenses associated with loading and unloading, and maintaining trucks, and paying $5.00 a gallon for diesel fuel in a truck that gets 5 miles a gallon, so that a church can receive FREE SHIPPING on their chairs?

Fleshing this out further, let's say a company advertises free shipping on their church chairs once a certain quantity of chairs are purchased to select geographical regions of the country. One of their chairs they sell for essentially $33.00 each, once there are a minimum of 100 chairs, purchased as a part of the order and also include "free shipping" for those chairs to about 20 different states. In this case they may purchase those chairs from a Chinese factory for about $13.00 a chair. They bring them to this country, warehouse them, sell them, and then deliver them. Their costs for all of these items is perhaps another $13.00 or so per chair. They then sell them for $33.00 a chair and all of their costs are covered and they make a nice profit. All through the process though they continue to state they are offering "free shipping".

It is standard for these chairs to have casters or wheels. However some chairs come with only four spokes, or for legs with wheels; others with five, or six. It is important to get a chair that has more than four legs. With only four legs, depending on the orientation of the chair, it can be easy to tip out of the chair. Because of the head rest, someone sitting in the chair will be inclined to sit back and lean back in the chair. If the chair has only four legs, i.e. a base with four wheels, if they are leaning back between two of the legs, the chair could tip over backwards. (The taller back of an executive chair makes this more likely than with a smaller, standard office chair.) With five or more wheels, the chair becomes more stable. Of course, the other determining factor of the stability is the width of the base. Again, high-end executive chairs will have a wider base.

Let's start with the basic and obvious premise that for any business to survive, they must take in more dollars over a course of time than they expend. This is certainly true for a company that provides church chairs as well. There is an overall cost to obtaining chairs (either through manufacturing them or importing them) and then delivering them to the end user (churches across the country). The company must receive for their chairs an amount of money from their customers that will cover all of their expenses.

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.

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.

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.
