(pronounced WAHL-say-ver lehg)

Chair rails and wainscoting exist to protect walls from the damage that seating can inflict, but a chair with a wallsaver leg does the job itself. A wallsaver leg is a rear chair leg (or base) that extends beyond the plane of its back, preventing it from hitting, gouging, rubbing against, or otherwise damaging the wall. Commonly used in hospitals and clinics due to the prevalence of high traffic waiting areas, wallsaver legs can easily save these facilities money by cutting down on the frequency of needed repairs.
