Waiting room chairs - These set in the waiting room designed for guest to sit and wait until they are called back to the inner office.

They are used for meetings, sometimes meetings last five minutes others can last five hours so comfort should be a primary consideration when selecting them.
Stacking chairs - Whenever many seats are needed, and the space is limited stacking chairs is the answer. They will work as cafeteria, waiting room, or in the conference room as needed. Their space savings come in their ability to be stacked vertically and be set to the side opening up the space for other uses.
Nesting chairs - They are a step up from stacking chairs but work under the same principle, they just stack horizontally in rows instead of the vertical stacking of the other. They usually have wheels for mobility and come with such options as arms and casters. They provide a layer of padding that stackers dont.
Office chairs - These seats are the ones that will be used as the primary workspace on a daily basis. A person could spend eight to twelve hours a day for five to seven days a week. This means that extreme attention to comfort and ergonomics should be the focus of finding an office chair.
