Furniture History

Everything owns a history. Yes, everything. That sectional: it has a history. The chair: tonnes of it. Your desk: you don't also want to know. Furniture is very common today that it's easy to skip that every section is part of a classical series of technology. Furniture has been made in many materials and many styles. As a material, wood is generally available, is soft enough to easily work with, light enough to move, and sturdy enough to last. As a result, wooden furnishings have played a big role in human history. So pull up a chair, and let's talk furniture.


Where we first see wooden furniture really appearing in the archeological record is in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. These were some of the first major civilizations in history, with strong hierarchies of power, and the rich put money into commissioning wooden furniture. As it turned out, a wooden bed was more comfortable than a bed made of a stone slab. The Egyptians made wooden stools, beds, and tray-tables. Arms and legs were added to stools to create the first throne-style chairs in Egypt, a practice the Mesopotamians built on by establishing a hierarchy of furniture that was only accessible to people of certain privilege. This set a precedent that certain kinds of chairs were only made for royal rumps, a tradition that would continue through the centuries.
