1. We claim the ornamental design for a chair, as shown and described.


FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a chair embodying the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a left side view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a rear view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a top view thereof.

The fragmented cross-hatching shown on the padded portion of the seat and on the backrest cover is understood to represent fabric and would be continuous throughout the circumscribed area.
