Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
Generally chair rail is basically molding that has plain rounded edges, although more complex routed moldings perform just as adequately. Just as the sophisticated curves and fancy routed molding can enhance your chair rail, so can embossed moldings or pressed wood or resin moldings. Any of these versions of molding provides an aspect of depth to what is otherwise a fairly plain horizontal line around the middle of a room.
There are a number of different types of ergonomic chairs available on the market that come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. For today, we'll focus on 1, 2, and 3-lever chairs that put a premium on providing a variety of configuration options. All of them are fairly similar, except when it comes to how they can tilt and shift to accommodate the user. For instance, a 1-lever chair allows you to raise or lower the seat level as needed. 2-lever chairs add the ability to adjust the angle of the backrest. Finally, 3-lever chairs give you the option of tilting the seat itself for maximum comfort.
Office recliner chairs can be adjusted to three levels from erect, when you need to work for several straight hours to reclined, when you are having casual conversations to practically flat when you want to take a short nap during lunch break. You can also adjust these chairs to a fixed position or change the height of the arm rest for your comfort.
I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
Office chair casters are just a tiny part in this process when figuring all this out. You will need to decipher how much of a need you will have to move these chairs around. If you are fairly sure once this setup is complete it's not going to be moved than you might decide to not worry about getting them at all.
