They were low to the ground and almost always had four legs carved with animal feet. From their bed, wealthy Egyptians woke up to a full day of planning, studying, or overseeing their workers. So, they needed chairs. ... While most chairs were still low to the ground, a taller chair indicated status and importance.
The ancient Egyptians were amongst the first truly complex settled civilizations in the world. This meant that they were amongst the first to make a lot of things…like furniture. Nomadic civilizations don't tend to carry around lots of extra stuff. The Egyptians built permanent homes and found new ways to fill their lives with both useful and decorative items.
What's remarkable about ancient Egyptian furniture isn't just that it existed, but also that we know about it. Most furniture was made of decomposable materials, like wood or reeds, but much has survived thanks to the extremely dry climate. Since the Egyptians believed the dead needed items from their daily lives, furniture was included in tombs, preserved by the same conditions that helped mummify their dead.
