The squat style chairs with heavy backs that were carved like a piece of paneling gave way to taller, more slender and elegant chairs. The framework of these chairs were less carved and new directions were taken as far as how these chairs were ornamented. Cabinet makers of the Restoration began to take advantage of the opportunities given to them to design these new chairs. Chairs began to take on an elaborate construction with graceful semicircular ornaments that connected all four legs by a vase shaped knob in the center. The arms and legs of the chairs of this period were scrolled with the splats of the back containing a rich arrangement of spirals and scrolls.
First of all, they do not have any arm support. Thus, you cannot rest your thighs against anything if you want to, nor you can rest your arms. Being light in weight is another issue. You cannot properly rest your back as it increases the chances of toppling. In addition to that, these chairs do not have any support for the lower back. There is an open space so the lower back is exposed to open space.
