Foldable chairs are very convenient to have around the house. There are plenty of different materials that foldable chairs can be made of, including wood, aluminium, even plastic. As convenient as these foldable chairs are, they aren’t the most attractive pieces of furniture. Foldable chairs have been around for centuries and were most popular during the middle ages. The foldable chair is a type of seating that is collapsible and stored away with ease. A basic chair of this type is constructed with four legs, a seat, and a backrest. The components of foldable chairs are assembled in a manner that allows the devices to be collapsed or folded into a flat position. The traditional foldable chair is normally no more than three inches thick at the widest point.
However, some modern variations may be at thick as six inches when in a folded position. Most foldable chairs retract with great ease. To fold the chair, the top of the back is gripped with one hand, while the outside edge of the seat is gripped with the opposite hand. Gently pulling the seat upward results in the legs folding together and the seat folding into the contours of the back.
