19th Century Chinese Roundback Chair

About

Prior to the 10th century, Chinese society eschewed raised seats in favour of mats. Upon the rising popularity of chairs and other forms of elevated seating, craftsmen began adapting traditional cabinetry and architecture techniques to the human body. In the case of this Yuanyi, or round chair, the flowing crestrail is a direct descendant of the simple armrests that had traditionally supported individuals on mats in their homes. This homage to an ancestral form, combined with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques, created an elegant, functional chair that has endured for centuries. Additional dimensions: Seat height: 20" H.
