Ancient Chinese Bar Stools

costco-chairs.jpgAs if seeing Chinese furniture at Target wasn’t enough, i head to Costco and find the same. However, they were passing these off as bar stools. I’m sure that’s not what these types of chairs are called in China though. Where next? Crate and Barrel?

    Hi, I have a site about bar stools. I don’t know about the “bar” part, but where those in the picture don’t have backs, they would at least technically be considered stools. 🙂

    I wrote an article about the history of stools and ancient China is thought to be the oldest known place where we know that stools existed.
