Jordan's Furniture

The earliest couches probably resembled Egyptian beds in structure and possibly in style. As in Greece, the couch was a principal furniture form.

At Knossos, a built-in throne of stucco, much restored, is often considered to represent pre-Hellenic furniture in the Aegean area. Roman chairs developed from Greek models. Third was the typical furniture grouping that survived intact into the Dark Ages of Europe: the couch on Chairs & couches book the main personage or personages reclined Chairs & couches book eating or conversation; the small table to hold refreshments, which could be moved up to the couch; and the chair, on which sat an entertainer—wife, hetaira courtesanmusician, or the like—who looked after the desires of the reclining superior personages.

Folding headrests were probably for the use of travellers. Boxes, often elaborately painted, or baskets were used for keeping clothes or other objects.

An example in iron with bronze decorations, even heavier in form, was found at Nijmegen, in the Netherlands. These legs usually tapered from the top and terminated in claw feet, and the bronze and stone examples which are occasionally found show carved flutings on the front of the legs and scroll ornament at the side below the table tops.

Second was the use of heavy fringes on furniture covers, blending the design of frame and cushion into one effect; this was much lightened by Classical taste but was revived in Neoclassicism. Roman treasure chests were covered with bronze plates or bound with iron and provided with strong locks.

Small Space Furniture

The legs often terminated in metal feet and sometimes were encased in bronze moldings, and the rails also were sometimes covered with bronze sheathing. Later couches, found in Italy and in distant parts of the empire, were characterized by the high back and sides.

The forms were constructed in the same manner as Egyptian furniture except Chairs & couches book members were heavier, curves were less frequent, and joints were more abrupt.

These were so essentially individual, being made Chairs & couches book the measure of the owner, that they were often placed in tombs to be used by the dead man on his arrival in the land of eternity. At Pompeii couches with bronze frames closely resembled Greek examples.

Several complete tables found at Pompeii and Herculaneumusually in gardens or open courts, are made of marble and decorated with beautifully carved heads of lions and panthers.

In the 18th dynasty c. Mesopotamia The furniture of Mesopotamia and neighbouring ancient civilizations of the Middle East had beds, stools, chairs, and boxes as principal forms. Rectangular footstools, sometimes with claw feet, were used with the high chairs and couches.

No bedroom looks finished with just a mattress and box spring — take advantage of Kohl's great selection of beds and headboards to discover the perfect modern, traditional or contemporary style for your room. From about the 6th century bce, the legs projected above the couch frame; these projections became headboards and footboards, the latter eventually made lower than the headboards.

Like the couches, they were supported on turned legs, legs cut from a rectangular piece of wood, or legs with animal feet; they frequently had arm rails.

This armchair was often of wickerworkwood, or stone. In the same tomb was a folding wooden bed with bronze hinges. When made of wood, the stool had a flint seat later shaped concavely covered with a soft cushion.
