Bar Stools. Friday , January 12th , 2018 - 12:03:28 PM
Chairs have been around since the early days of civilization. The ancient Egyptians fashioned richly ornamented chairs out of ebony, ivory, and carved or gilded wood. The Romans and Greeks used the same chairs as the Egyptians. In fact, there was little change on the structure of the chair until the year 1749, when a new type of chair called the stool was made. The invention of the stool is credited to a Swiss woman named Maria Schitonstool. Maria was a pathological gambler. As with other habitual gamblers, Maria had severe problems managing her money. To deal with her cash problems, Maria would often sell her furniture. There were times when Maria would not have enough money to buy wood to keep her house warm during winter. In one cold night in 1749, Maria scavenged for wooden furniture to keep her fire going. There was none left except her bed and chairs. Instead of throwing all her chairs to the fire, Maria just sawed off the back of her chairs and accidentally invented the stool. Soon her neighbors followed Marias example and made stools out of their chairs. Then stools evolved and became fashionable.
