What Have We Here ?
For over a century, American furniture factories have been producing folding chairs to meet the communal demands of schools, churches, and many other civic needs. Hardwood seats like this one have been replaced by cheaper plastic and metal versions lately, but the beauty of their simple design persists.
How to Use It ?
Folding chairs have been designed and used since at least the time of the Roman Empire. Even Julius Caesar needed a way to quickly seat a few extra guests without cluttering his dining room every day. Store this chair out of the way and unfold it when you need it.
Why It Matters ?
The timeless beauty of the folding chair lies in its multi-functionality. A simple, reliable form can be used again and again without wasting resources.
