As Ogden Nash once said, “People who work sitting down get paid more than people who work standing up.” Let’s hope that’s the case for everyone. Opt in for a job sitting down according to Nash.
Seating is essential to any home. Seating is used for eating, socialising, working and resting. It is timeless to any place, any culture, any country and any home.If it is an inevitable element to your home, why not embrace it and research into it?
Provide your own space with some structure, utility and aesthetic. It is essential to note, however, that antique seating dating 1950 is often not fire retardant. Check with the seller if any fabric advertised is safe and suitable for your home.

Origins of Antique SeatingChairs date back to shapes as simple as a bench or a stool from the Antiquity and Middle Ages. Upholstered seats started to trend in the 17th century. From the 18th century, this expanded to dining chairs, where the mindset shifted to comfort and luxury. In the UK, prominent chair makers were Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton, but it was led by the French of th eLouis XV and Louis XVI periods.
Originally, antique seating would be made with loose feather-filled cushions, however, from the 1830s such chairs were upholstered with metal springs which were padded and webbed.
