Imagine a sculptural wooden chair with no legs and you have a pretty good idea of what a Japanese floor chair looks like. These unusual chairs may look a little out of place in a traditional American living room, but if you are decorating in Zen fashion they will fit right in.
Who uses a Japanese floor chair and why?
When you find something that works for you, you may not want to touch it, but the Japanese have perfected the floor chair beyond its original intention. Lasting pleasure will come from owning these finely crafted Japanese floor chairs, which are also known as Zaisu chairs. Functional and beautiful, they are made from sustainable laminated Asian hardwoods. One of the bestselling Japanese floor chairs at Chopa.com is one that has a curved backrest to provide optimal comfort. Its removable seat cushion is made from tatami fabric, which is breathable and easy to clean. On the backrest is a cut-out fan pattern that is also used to as a makeshift handle to move the chair around the room.
Another Japanese floor chair is a folding Zaisu floor chair. It too is made from solid hardwood, but it has a solid matte black finish. Like all other floor chairs, it can be used for tea ceremonies, lounging with friends, meditation and dining. The back provides that additional support that is so important in preventing back pain. It makes a great addition to any Tatami room or a lower profile chair for a Japanese restaurant or teahouse.
