    sagging

    Hi

    A woman walked inside a room. There she saw a table and two
    upright chairs near the window, a sagging but comfortablelooking
    wicker chair near the gas-fire.


    Does "sagging" here mean that the seat of that chair was concave?

    Sagging means curving inwards due to frequent use or aging

    Yes - it was bulging downwards through constant use.
