Plastic Folding Chairs – A Bit of History

Folding chairs have become a fixture in our modern lives, but you may be surprised to learn that they’ve actually been around for centuries. In fact, some of the earliest folding chairs or stools trace all the way back to the 15th–13th century B.C. in the Mediterranean area. An ivory and ebony folding chair with beautiful gold fittings was even found in the Tutankhamen’s tomb. In the Middle Ages, the folding chair would become more widespread, and most of the chairs at this time also had headrests and armrests.

Within the United States, John Cham had an early patent for a folding chair in 1855, and then in 1947, the first aluminum folding chair was created by Fredic Arnold, who used fabric strapping for the back and seat. A decade later, over 14,000 chairs were being manufactured a day by the Fredric Arnold Company of Brooklyn. Most folding chairs today are made out of wood, metal or hard plastic, although plastic has become a popular choice because they are so versatile, lightweight, and easy to set up and take down when necessary.
