You should check the chair construction. You should see to it that the frame of the chair is made of hardwood. This would make sure that the chair is durable. You should also check on the joints of the frame where it should be doweled well even two to three times and it should also be held in place with the use of glue and screws to make the frame secured. You should also check on the webbing that are in between the frames and the spring coils. Make sure these are tightly woven and check if there are gaps or sags. Then check for the spring coil used. Check for its type and design as each design would determine the type of the quality of springs used. There are single, double and the zigzag types of coils. The sinous type is the coil with a lower quality. More coils that are together and the closer that they are would mean a higher quality of the design. They offer a greater support for the chair.
