For centuries the armchair represented status in society and now is commonly seen, accompanied by an ottoman, in living rooms around the world. Individuals of great power and authority sat in these chairs giving them complete control over their people. During the period of 6000BC, which dates back to ancient Egypt, ancient chairs were created out of lavish materials. Gold, silver, bronze and an array of jewels were etched or carved into these seats. Many of these chairs were decorated with such distinct qualities only the Pharaoh was deemed worthy enough to sit in one.
Chairs provide a very simple yet effective way to relax and spend some good time in a comfortable body posture. But not all chairs are designed to "relax" . This is especially true about chairs in the workplaces. In the workplaces we are supposed to be alert hence the office furniture is designed to be alert at work.
Ancient Greeces (8BC -6AD) take on chair placement and the people who sat in them were a great deal different than the civilization before them. The concept of lesser citizens sitting on the floor or stools was entirely the same. Greek culture thought of placing extra chairs in various temples in order for the gods to make their direct presence known to the land. Advance time thousands of years forward to modern day living this would be like another occasional piece of furniture that does not always get used day in and day out. If the gods truly sat in these extra chairs one would think it would not be a daily occurrence.
The process of social dominance continued its establishment during the Roman Empires conquests of Europe beginning in 27 BC. They also conjured up the idea that having an extra throne would bring them good fortune. They placed statues of the goddess Roma in the chair next to the emperor.
