Learn about Office Chair

A term that came into use in the early 1900s to describe a chair usually with a curved back supported by spindles, and with a revolving caned, leather or solid wooden seat, that had a screw adjustable height. Some also incorporated a tilt mechanism, but the height and tilt adjustment mechanisms were primitive by today's standard.
