Classic Club

Other things to look for: The seat should be both high enough to allow your knees to bend at a 90-degree angle while your feet rest flat on the floor and wide enough to allow you to place a fist between each thigh and the chair's arms. It should also be deep enough to fully support your thighs but not so deep that it fails to support your lower back.

Shown here: The Martene club chair packs a lot of details—taut leather upholstery, nailheaded seams, bun feet—into a trim 32-inch-wide seat. About $1,845; Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams
