The cover 7a is attached to the chair body C1. In the mounted state, the top edge of the upper and lower facing walls 54 and 55 of the connecting member 52 and the outer edge of the cover 7a are configured to coincide with each other.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, since the outer periphery of the linear member 83 is covered by the covering member 836, the linear member 83 is linear even when the linear member 83 moves relative to the exterior material. The body 83 and the tension member 62 do not interfere with each other. Accordingly, it is possible to suitably avoid damage to the tension member 62 caused by the tension member 62 and the linear body 83 sliding on each other.

  The tension member 62 that is a mesh that receives the load of the seated person is an exterior material that receives the load of the seated person, and the tension member 62 is stretched on the back support member 61 having a frame shape. Can be secured.

  Since the wire 83 is a wire that can be flexibly deformed, the wire 83 is excellent in strength and the range of selection is widened. On the other hand, the wire is generally a stranded wire, and when the wire and the tension member 62 slide on each other, the tension member 62 is easily damaged. In this embodiment, the outer periphery is covered with the covering member 836. Therefore, damage to the tension member 62 can be suitably avoided.

  Since the covering member 836 has a tubular shape that covers the entire outer periphery of the linear body 83 in a cross-sectional view, the damage to the tension member 62 can be more reliably alleviated.

  The covering member 836 includes a main tube 837 that covers the entire circumference of the linear body 83, and an exposure prevention sub-tube 838 that covers the frame adjacent portion of the linear body 83 including both ends of the main tube 837. Therefore, the sub-tube 838 can prevent the end of the linear body 83 not covered by the main tube 836 from being exposed when the linear body 83 moves in the left-right direction. Therefore, damage to the tension member 62 when the linear body 83 moves relative to the tension member 62 can be securely relieved. Moreover, since the sub tube 838 prohibits the end of the linear body 83 from being exposed when the linear body 83 moves in the left-right direction, the appearance of the end of the linear body 83 is exposed. It is possible to prevent the occurrence of problems that damage the process. In addition, since the sub-tube 838 is fitted to the side frame 64, it is possible to suppress deformation of the main tube 836 and the linear body 83 that are extremely bent at a portion protruding from the side frame 64.

  More specifically, when the tension of the linear body 83 can be changed, a plurality of lines of linear bodies 83 are bridged between the left and right side frames 64 and are added to the linear body 83 of a specific row. If the tension state of the line 83 in the other row is changed individually by an external force, the tension member 62 is easily damaged by the interference between the line 83 and the tension member 62. By covering the filament 83 with the covering member 836, the effect of reducing the damage to the tension member can be more effectively obtained.
