Who thought up a bar stool?

Scientists who found analog of a bar stool at excavation of the cities of Ancient Egypt tried to receive the answer to this question. Already then to a seat attached a back, but its height was small – only 10-25 cm. Over time the back for convenience sitting was transformed and increased its length.

The very first bar stools intended only for honourable and important guests. The first analogs of such furniture met only in rich houses because were considered as luxury goods. In order that the seat was soft and convenient, it upholstered with skins of animals or a seat covered with leaves and a grass, and from above put a leather laying. Later the novelty was adopted also by Greeks, and behind them ancient Romans "peeped".
