Learn about Commode Chair

In common usage, commode is another rather more polite term for an item of furniture concealing a chamber pot. Commode chairs were and are still used by the elderly or infirm. They resemble armchairs, but are distinguished by a removable wooden seat and a deep apron at the front to hide the pot. Also made as commode stools, in the form of a square box with hinged lid concealing the pot, with a lower section sliding out as a footrest.
