The next chair is English and is in fact one of a pair that sit in my entry way. They have cane seats (in good repair thank goodness) and I believe the style is called balloon back.
In the dining room sits this American chair with an upholstered seat. Mac gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. I wish I had a pair of them.

The last two are really sweet little chairs. The first is English, I actually managed to fit this in a suitcase----don't ask what happened to my clothes--and was brought home from one of my favorite antique shops in Broadway Fenwick and Fenwick. It was sold as an 1850's Oxford style child's armchair made of elm.
The other is an American Bentwood child's chair, I recovered the seat.
Children's chairs are always disproportionately more expensive than regular chairs, just too sweet.
So that's one of my obsessions, what's yours?
