Natural Wood Chair: Why It Is So Comfortable?
We all know that sitting on a chair is a necessary part of our life. What can you say about the chair's comfort? To answer this question, today we will talk about the natural wood chair, which has many different colors, sizes, and shapes. Find out why individuals think it's so comfortable!
The history of solid wood furniture, such as natural wooden chairs, can be described as the history of woodwork in the world. No matter how much the chair's material has changed with the advent of the industrial revolution, the natural wooden chair still occupies a very essential and irreplaceable position, closely related to its comfort. So why is it so comfortable?
One of the main reasons for this is the comfort of the wood.
Wood has a unique beauty and superior material properties that nature has given. Since ancient times, people have liked to use wood to make furniture, decorate the environment and improve the comfort of the living environment. People have learned from experience that the presence of wood in space makes life comfortable.
Scientific research has shown that people are used to using wood to make furniture, which is closely linked to the visual features of the wood. On the other hand, the visual characteristics of the wood consist mainly of parameters such as the color, gloss, and grain of the wood.
- The color of the wood
Increasing the brightness of the color will give a bright, elegant, and relaxing feeling. Woods such as birch and spruce that have such bright colors will make people feel bright and comfortable.
Wood with low brightness, like rosewood and yew, gives a sense of depth, stability, and elegance. In general, the color of softwood is more focused on orange-yellow and yellowish-white light with higher brightness, while hardwood is spread over a large spatial range.
- The grains of the wood
There are three major reasons why wood grain makes a good impression. First, the surface grain color of the vast majority of the wood is warm, which can bring a warm visual sense. Second, the wood grain is composed of parallel lines but not equally spaced, giving people a feeling of softness, order, relaxation, and comfort. The width of the annual wood rings and the nuances of color shows the ascending and descending patterns, which fully reflect the artistic law of change and unity.
Some studies have shown that the visual sense of opulence and luxury is significantly increased in grain patterns with large variations in line spacing, line width, and color, and these patterns are mainly on the diameter cut surface of the wood. Most woods can exhibit moderate variations in grain pattern to provide a sense of elegance and beauty. That's why natural wood chairs never get tired of looking at them, and they will last for a long time.
The researchers also found that the radial rhythm of wood grains changes in line with the fluctuation rhythm of the human biological clock. The spectral distribution forms of wood tone, texture, and growth ring interval coincide with the spectrum distribution of human physiological indicators (including brain waves, heart rate, etc.). This rhythm is a common internal feature of all organisms in nature. Due to the absence of this characteristic of wood, some artificial materials in the industrial era were not trusted or loved by people.
- The luster of the wood
When light shines on the surface of the glass, tiles, and other materials with high reflectivity, the bright reflected light often renders people unable to open their eyes. Wood is a porous material, and when the light is illuminated, the wood is diffusely reflected or absorbs part of the light, softening the dizzy light and having a visual effect on the silk surface. Therefore, even if people are constantly looking for alternatives to wood, it has never been able to mimic the surface shine effect 4. The uniqueness of the wood
A knot is a natural growth defect on the surface of the wood. Still, the appropriate knot on the furniture will have a certain decorative effect, giving people a pure, natural feeling. People even make efforts to find furniture with nodes, and the unique node on each piece of wood makes each piece of furniture unique and irreducible.
The points above explore the comfort of the wood itself. Moreover, natural wood chairs in various use scenarios also have corresponding comfort requirements.
