5,000 Years of Chairs in 5 Minutes

By Christa Terry

Hosting a party this past weekend was a real eye-opener for me. I realized at some point on Saturday that I could only comfortably host X number of people before some guests would be left standing unless Y number of people chose to schmooze in a different area of the house. When everyone was on the porch or in the living room, there would inevitably be someone on their feet. I’m not anti-standing, but less than comfortable to eat and drink when vertical.

So, yeah, I obviously need a few more chairs, even if that means buying cheapie chairs that stay hidden away in the basement until it becomes absolutely necessary to bring them out.

If you, like me, enjoy learning a bit more about that which you plan to buy, you’ll probably like 5,000 Years of Chairs in 5 Minutes. The video, created and narrated by Nick Currie for The Post-Materialist, takes a look at all the “chairs out there in the world.” It’s a bit heavy on the not-so-ancient chairs, but fun nonetheless!
