My studio is fairly good sized, but it seems that I'm always bumping one of my two rolling chairs into the sewing table or my old Singer cabinet. I read the other day where someone took the back off a desk chair to get more room. Well, I did it!
So far it is working great. I never leaned back while I was working, only when I wanted to admire something I had finished sewing. I only miss it when I want to grab the back to move it. I'll give it another week or so before I take the other chair back off.
