The chair has been used since antiquity, although for many
centuries it was a symbolic article of state and dignity rather
than an article for ordinary use. "The chair" is still used as the
emblem of authority in the House of
Commonsin the United Kingdom and Canada, and in many other settings. In
keeping with this historical connotation of the "chair" as the
symbol of authority, committees, boards of directors, and academic
departments all have a 'chairman' or 'chair'. Endowed professorships are referred to as chairs.
It was not until the 16th century that chairs became common. Until
then, people sat on chests, benches, and stools, which were the ordinary seats of everyday life. The
number of chairs which have survived from an earlier date is
exceedingly limited; most examples are of ecclesiastical, seigneurial or feudal origin.Chairs were in existence since at least the Early Dynastic Period of Egypt (c. 3100 BC). They were covered with cloth or leather, were made of
carved wood, and were much lower than today’s chairs – chair seats
were sometimes only 25 cm high. In ancient Egypt chairs appear to have been of great richness and splendor.
Fashioned of ebony and ivory, or of carved and gilded wood, they were covered with costly materials, magnificent patterns and
supported upon representations of the legs of beasts or the figures
of captives. Generally speaking, the higher ranked an individual
was, the taller and more sumptuous was the chair he sat on and the
greater the honor. On state occasions the pharaoh sat on a throne, often with a little footstool in front of it.
The average Egyptian family seldom had chairs, and if they did, it
was usually only the master of the household who sat on a chair.
Among the better off, the chairs might be painted to look like the
ornate inlaid and carved chairs of the rich, but the craftsmanship
was usually poor.
The earliest images of chairs in China are from sixth-century
Buddhist murals and stele, but the practice of sitting in chairs at that time was rare. It wasn't until the twelfth
century that chairs became widespread in China. Scholars disagree
on the reasons for the adoption of the chair. The most common
theories are that the chair was an outgrowth of indigenous Chinese
furniture, that it evolved from a camp stool imported from Central
Asia, that it was introduced to China by Christian missionaries in
the seventh century, and that the chair came to China from India as
a form of Buddhist monastic furniture. In modern China, unlike
Korea or Japan, it is no longer common to sit at floor level.
In Europe, it was owing in great measure to the Renaissance that the chair ceased to be a privilege of state and became a
standard item of furniture for anyone who could afford to buy it.
Once the idea of privilege faded the chair speedily came into
general use. Almost at once the chair began to change every few
years to reflect the fashions of the day.
In the 1880s, chairs became more common in American households and
usually there was a chair provided for every family member to sit
down to dinner. By the 1830s, factory-manufactured “fancy chairs”
like those by Sears. Roebuck, and Co. allowed families to purchase
machined sets. With the Industrial Revolution, chairs became much
The 20th century saw an increasing use of technology in chair
construction with such things as all-metal folding chairs,
metal-legged chairs, the Slumber Chair,moulded plastic chairs and ergonomic chairs.The recliner became a
popular form, at least in part due to radio and television.
The modern movement of the 1960s produced new forms of chairs: the butterfly
chair (originally called the Hardoy chair), bean bags, and the egg-shaped pod
chair that turns. It also introduced the first mass-produced plastic
chairs such as the Bofinger chair in 1966. Technological advances led to molded plywood and wood laminate chairs, as well as chairs made of leather or polymers. Mechanical technology incorporated into the chair enabled
adjustable chairs, especially for office use. Motors embedded in the chair resulted in massage
One of the basic pieces of furniture, a chair is a type of seat. Its primary features are two pieces of a durable material,
attached as back and seat to one another at a 90° or slightly
greater angle, with usually the four corners of the horizontal seat
attached in turn to four legs—or other parts of the seat's
underside attached to three legs or to a shaft about which a
four-arm turnstile on rollers can turn—strong enough to support the
weight of a person who sits on the seat (usually wide and broad
enough to hold the lower body from the buttocks almost to the
knees) and leans against the vertical back (usually high and wide
enough to support the back to the shoulder blades). The legs are
typically high enough for the seated person's thighs and knees to
form a 90° or lesser angle. Used in a number of rooms in homes (e.g. in living
rooms, and dens), in schools and offices (with desks), and in various other workplaces, chairs may be made of wood,
metal, or synthetic materials, and either the seat alone or the
entire chair may be padded or upholstered in various colors and fabrics.
Chairs vary in design. An armchair has armrests fixed to the seat;a recliner is upholstered and under its seat is a mechanism that allows one to
lower the chair's back and raise into place a fold-out footrest; a rocking chair has legs fixed to two long curved slats; a wheelchair has wheels fixed to an axis under the seat.
