Contemporary chairs can be wild or mild. Mostly made of wood, plastic or metal, the designs can resemble something very stark and primitive, or something glitzy and high tech that looks like it just landed from outer space. Seats can be plump with lots of cushioning or flat with no padding at all. Legs can be curved shiny rods of chrome or straight, sculpted wood in a Parson`s mode.
The traditional carpentry joints using in solid wood furniture are crafted to use the strength of the wood and design of the joint itself for its strength. A pinned tenon or a properly crafted dovetail joint needs no glue, nails or screws to make it secure. Unlike plywood or particleboard, solid wood joints do not separate their layers or disintegrate when they become wet. They remain strong, and expand and contract along with the parts they bind together in extremes of heat and cold.
