Just as in the West, there are a great variety of chairs. Some are arm chairs, some side chairs, and some designed for children. One of the most beautiful forms of the arm chairs are the "horse shoe arm" chair. There is really nothing like it for beauty of design. This chair fits beautifully into houses with western style furniture. Side chairs are often found with a protruding top rail crest. These chairs are called lamp hanger chairs, presumably so one could hang a light on the chair itself and see with greater ease.
