Although the starting date of the seating furniture is not known, there are examples showing the features that match the contemporary seating furniture in terms of both size and form from Ancient Egypt to the New Kingdom Period. The history of chairs and furniture can be traced back to Egypt as well as the traces of furniture history in the Mesopotamian region, a geography where Egypt is in constant interaction.
