A close by shop has a Chair Suspension, the magi places his assistant onto the board and covers him/her with the cloth. One chair is removed and then the board is removed. The assistant seems to be floating and leaning only on the one remaining chair. The price is $499.

Its not called the chair suspension, thats something completetly else. I belive its called the super x suspension.
Its also knows as the 21 st century levitations, alltough it uses the super x suspension.

The chair suspension is where the lady is wraped inside a cloth and her head is restion on the chair.

I know exactly what you are talking about. It is called Suspension Illusion if I am not mistaking. You can actually build this illusion. The trick wouldn't be good though for kids birthday parties and small shows such as that. The secret and partial building instructions are included in Mark Wilson's Encyclopedia of Magic. It is a great trick, but is only for use on a stage.
