Though some might view folding chairs as an easy way to bring the indoors out, their function isn't just to sit. Secretly, folding chairs are vehicles of increasing social interactions.
At church functions, outdoor picnics, beach outings, and in parks and backyards everywhere, the party is over without the folding chair. It allows you the flexibility to move over to that relative you love talking to and away from the one that talks too much or not at all. Perfect for barbecues, pool parties or to chat with neighbors, these chairs facilitate free-flowing conversations.
Even hotels and resorts have integrated folding chairs into their common area environments to increase social activity around pools, sunning salons and for their scenic sunset dining areas. Today's condo conversions are complementing their outdoor areas with folding chairs and their counterpart tables.
Additionally, these chairs are nothing if not functional. In the 50s, folding chairs came into style because of the industrial revolution that increased the density in the suburbs and in larger city living. The polar opposite of traditional rigid seating designs that prohibited movement, flexibility and were often uncomfortable, the folding chair had padded backs and instant mobility.
Folding chairs allowed the collapse of the back to the seat, were lightweight in design and easy to assemble. Some further collapsed the feet up to the back for storage.
With the modernization of the times, stylish folding chairs have developed specifically in the outdoor patio arena where materials used are fine woods with very contemporary designs, expansive armrests and comfortable weather resistant padding to make seating a pleasure. The design has evolved from the basic fold-out to include a chaise lounge chair capability.
Sales of folding chair increased when manufacturers delved into the gaming industry, where people purchase the seating for domino tables, poker sets and card games. These chairs came with the added function of additional armrests with or without padding. Some have multifunctional purposes and serve as traditional seating with the option to extend into chaise seating arenas.
The versatility of these chairs lie in their flexibility to accommodate to the indoors or outdoors. They make for perfect complements to balconies, football games, and have even evolved into a separate line to provide seating for those in long lines with knee or back issues. Folding chairs are typically designed to stack on top of each other when folded and may come with special trolleys to move stacks of folded chairs.
