Nearly all chairs have the same basic parts—a seat, back, legs, and occasionally arms— but they look different because of their special functions.  Think about how people use chairs in different ways in different places (such as school, movie theater, office, or home).  At home, you sit up straight in a dining room chair, but you might put your feet up in a recliner.  Other things that affect the look of a chair are its materials, shape, line, ornament, color, pattern, etc.
