Definition statement

This place covers:

Subject matter including a chair and an attached tray. The tray is an element having a horizontal surface (at least in an operative or use position) configured to support articles on top of it. In general, the tray is relatively small (a table encircling a chair is not considered a tray; see the references below) so that the supporting structure of the chair and tray is not substantially larger than required to support a chair alone. The tray is attached to only a single chair.
