They spend hours, sometimes days, selecting their living room sofa, then they hastily choose the chair or cnairs without much thought at all. Today, let's talk about selecting those all important chairs. Remember that chairs are for sitting. When you come into our showroom, sit on the chairs and test them for comfort. Don't make your selection according to design alone. Check the slope of the seat, the tilt of the back. If you'll have to put pillows behind you to make the chair comfortable, then it's not the one for you. The simple designs of Modern chairs are popular because they fit well into the small rooms of today's homes and they coordinate well with other furnishings. 'The more traditionally designed overstuffed chairs and recliners are still big sellers because they provide lots of roominess and com- fort. Whether you're selecting one chair or a whole roomful or furniture, be sure to shop at American Home Fur- nishing. We have a marvelous selection of fur- nishings at prices you can af- ford.
