This Shelia chair adds (3) advantages to its standard version – 1) when folded, the chair can sit on its feet in an upright position 2) the addition of a thicker back piece which also serves as a stopgap and transfers pressure to the frame 3) small proportion variations. Most folding chairs on the market, and this means 90%+, are the standard version.
The three advantages include helping to store and pack the folding chair when not in use. The ability for the chair to fold upright and not have the seat flop forward due to short legs is an advantage for continuous and tight storage. In addition, the design and function of the back seat piece serves a pivotal role in allowing more weight in the seat.
