Medieval X chair and historical sources
A folding chair in X shape was known in the ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. There was also a version without a backrest . A folding X chair was extremely popular during Middle Ages – it was used both during liturgy rites and as a way of rest. An example of medieval X chair with a backrest can be found in Palazzo Vecchio, in Florence, Italy.

Although medieval furniture was home equipment, we can also find furniture in knight camps, where they spoke of the status and wealth of the owner. In camps we can find such equipment as: buckets, baskets, pots, tables, stools, chairs, chests and even beds. The early gothic furniture was made from massive boards. Out of the survived originals the most common are chests, which particularly stand out because of the richness of the form (coat of arms and emblems of the owners often appeared on them).
Due to the fact that our furniture is a result of craftsman's work, the measurements provided here might differ from the real ones by maximum +/- 1.5 cm.
Our medieval furniture is finished with sandpaper of 60-level grit. Therefore, in some softer spots of a piece of furniture, you may find some slight, natural wood nap which is a result of polishing. It practically disappears after impregnating the furniture with the use of natural methods such as linen oil or wax. If you plan to varnish the furniture in more contemporary way and want us to make the furniture’s surface smoother (i.e. use sandpaper of higher grit), please contact us and we will tell you the price of the option.
