Romanesque Furniture

Romanesque furniture consisted mostly of pieces designed and constructed for church use. Altars, canopies, shrines, silver chalices, throne chairs, caskets, and tapestry were all common Romanesque furniture pieces.

Materials used: local wood (walnut, oak, mixture of woods).
Seating: HARDLY NO CHAIRS! yet throne chairs were made solely for the ruler and showed his status among the community.
Storage: storage came in the form of chests made from IVORY and were decorated heavily.
Below, in order, are photos of a Romanesque Throne chair of the bishop of Saint Sophia, a casket made of ivory, a shrine, and an Altar.
