Reserved for royalty and members of the priesthood, the first chairs were low to the ground and ornately carved. Eventually, chairs became an expected furniture item for the socially elite while the common man used benches, stools or chests to sit upon. Not until the 16th century did commoner’s enjoy using chairs in their home.
