Ancient Egyptian furniture is quite a spectacle. Decked out in stunning gold and black coloration, most pieces were inspired through animals and power to collaborate the pieces.
Chairs normally were built-in and carved out of stone from existing structures. However, the chair had to be the best way to know who was higher up in society. The most elaborate, highest seated chairs belonged to the pharaohs and their company. Gold was a guaranteed quality of these pieces of furniture.
Another royal piece of furniture is the bed. (Hard to believe only the wealthy had them back then- I cannot go a day without mine.) These were rare, extremely ornamental, elaborate and quite uncomfortable.
