Hi Joan,

Où est-ce qu'est la chaise? is correct.

Où la chaise est-elle? is correct too.

You would probably say:

La chaise est où? in every day French not as elegant but adequate...

Hope this helps!

Hi Patrizia, 

Yes, in every day speech you could say -

Où est la chaise?

Not all - the following ones are incorrect : 

Oú elle est  ----> Elle est oú?

Oú  elles se trouvent -------> Oú se trouvent-elles?

Oú ils sont  -----> Oú sont-ils?
