Welcome,

When you are new to Arduino, please spent some time at - http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage - as there is a lot to learn about how to program in general.

Before being able to answer the question, we need a bit more info:

What do you want to sense? (what is your project goal)
- sitting people
- their arms,
- their back,
- other?

Do you need just ON/OFF information or the amount of pressure?

How many sensors you want to install in the chair?

I have this vision of an extremely hi-tech Whoopee cushion!

Options are:
* switches - probably microswitches
* pressure mats as used in intruder alarms
* stress sensors like this http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8606
