Furniture - Refinishing and Repair would be the Search the List category for this type of work. If legs are loose where they go into the seat, but a relatively tight fit - you can get chair and table leg glue - pull the leg or brace out as far is it will reasonably go without disassembling the entire leg support system, put some glue in (wipe around in teh hole and on the leg pin if possible, with pipe cleaner) then reinsert the leg. Wipe any squeeze out TOWARDS the leg all around - don't wipe around or away from the leg or you may get glue all over the finish.

Another thing to look at - if the seat itself is loose on the frame, commonly the seat cushion is stapled to a piece of plywood or particle board, which is then screwed down to the chair frame from below. Flip over and look for screws (typically one at each corner) going through the frame into the seat board - might just need tightening with a screwdriver.
