Come see our fine selection of chairs and beds. You can choose between seats and mattresses of either leather or woven rope. We have many styles, with legs that can be shaped like the legs of oxen or lions. Several have decorative copper trimmings. Most chairs are low to the ground. If you plan to sit on the floor instead, go to our textile section to find beautiful woven mats to sit upon.

We also have tables: round ones on pedestals, or semi-elliptical ones with four legs.

Come see chests and boxes or wood, some inlaid in ivory. They come in many sizes and can be used to store clothes and other items. Many are designed to fit under the standard high bed.
