The Gilded throne of the ancient Egyptian king Tutankhamun

Storia della sedia - Trono di

The chair is a commonly used object, spread in an infinite range of variations in practically every corner of the globe. So popular in fact that it is almost taken for granted by most people. Have you ever stopped to think about the history of the chair? When, where and how was it born? It is a very rich and millenary story that begins in ancient Egypt.

For Gaia it is a source of great pride to be part (with our distinctive “made in Italy” feature) of a long tradition of craftsmen who have dedicated their inventiveness and professionalism to the creation of this object. Precisely for this reason we like to propose an in-depth link, extremely well written by the online magazine Artimondo Magazine, on the birth of the chair and its evolution over the centuries.
