Learn about Cottage Chairs

Any small wooden chair for domestic or kitchen use, generally mass produced. The seats are usually wooden, with a saddled or slightly hollowed-out section for the sitter's comfort. The deeper the saddling, the earlier the chair is likely to be. The seats were sometimes caned or fitted with embossed plywood. See American spindle chairs, Federation chairs, Windsor chairs, etc.
