The Roman curule chair is a very important component of Roman furniture because of its use, size, and ability to fold. Space was very limited back then so furniture was often designed to be portable and even be able to hang on the walls. This stool allowed seating for high class, wealthy citizens. The curule stool mimics other furniture from other time periods mentioned above through its curved design features, and its ability to save space.
