Greek designers did not follow the free form of the earlier Aegean examples. The tendency to put furniture ornament regular to the whole design is more like Egypt tradition. Despite all, although there are similarities the Greek bench used for meal and rest is made with a horizontal line of rest bar to the height of the table, and not low to the ground. The head restraint is often made to carry a cushion, and there is not footrest at the chair. Although there might sometimes be tracked legs of chairs with shape of animals, in most cases the legs are trumpet-shaped in rectangular designs, based on columns forms. A variety of chairs for seating is used in Greek style design. Folding chairs with X-shaped legs and those with straight legs are made from the 6th century BC to Hellenistic era. There are examples of functional and simple solutions. Further stand out the chairs known as "Klismos", which is lightweight and comfortable chair with a backrest.
This chair is very comfortable, and is used in the Archaic and Classical period. He is mostly simple with curved legs and backrest of the seat of simple rectangular panel curved inward from sides to center. The décor of the Greek classic furniture is restrained, elegant and often with ornaments. Tables are usually small size. Rectangular seats are the most popular and most often base consists of three legs, straight and curved, sometimes with animal form, and often backs.
