One of the most comfortable chairs I own is like this. My parents  
obtained it from their church when they remodeled the Sunday school  
classrooms. I sit in this chair every day at meal time.

I also own one other "banker's" chair -- similar hard wood with arms,  
and my office chair is similar, except it has rollers and swivel.

All of these are very comfortable, even when sitting for a while. I  
haven't used any of them for long-term contesting.
