The Chinese, like most Asians, used to sit on the floor until the first chairs appear in paintings during the Tang periods of Five Dynasties. From then onwards, chairs were a regulated and controlled object of great prestige. The Emperor decided, who could have how many chairs and it seems that this Imperial control element prevented any Chinese Chairs from ever being comfortable. One would not lounge on a chair which represents social hierarchy and formality and is subject to approval by the emperor.
