chairs, stools and benches 


All you need to sit down! Chairs had been introduced in Ancient China by Nestorian missionaries in the 7th century, but only became populair during the Song dynasty (960–1279 AD). Before, the common people were seated on woven siting mats on the floor. Classical Chinese furniture; including chairs and benches, were always made by connecting wooden pieces and woodworking joints, instead of being constructed with glue or metal pins. The elegant Horseshoe chairs or Yoke-back chairs were used by the rich, while their servants were seated on low stools. Simple wooden benches and stools were found in the shops of merchants or outside restaurants or farms.
