About Us

We believe in the magic of that moment of home where you take in a storm or a great laugh. What is the language of objects?

Why a Chair and a Half?

It needed to be big! A chair and a half, but we noticed there wasn't a lot options on line that specialized in chair and a half, so using our research skills from a Bachelor's in Biology and 4 years working in design. We got to work.

Our Content

We follow the rules of writing of The Economist and George Orwell. This is an editorial website with a focus on fun and fact. A chair is an intimate experience and we want to start there.

How We Get Paid

Some of the products we recommend are from affiliates. Some are not. Affiliate marketing is how we pay for the website and time to do the research.

How We Choose Products

We take into account overall customer ratings, bestsellers, and overall how well parameters fit. We value variety in the chair options. For every chair a person, for every person a chair.

Why the Chair and a Half?

We fell in love with the chair and a half because it is a chair about functionality. In a chair and a half, one can expressively sit in solitude or two can sit together - sharing a moment of warmth and safety.

Form follows function - and a chair and a half functions.

"Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” -bell hooks

Why Trust Us?

We do aggregate reviews across platforms. This means we test across different sources instead of relying on just one. This includes reading and researching information about materials, care, and longevity outside of just what a product page states.


What does it take to make a home function? We want home to not just look good, but also feel good. We put research and effort into design for zoning, mindfulness, and longevity.


We apply the same research skills that academic research uses. This includes using aggregate data, locating, extracting, organizing, evaluating, and presenting information methodically. Our writers have published research articles in scientific journals.
