Chair of the Month for January is for anyone who has made a New Year’s Resolution to have better posture!

Made in about 1790, it is a type of child’s chair known as a deportment chair or correction chair. The high, narrow, shiny seat meant that there was no slouching– or the child would slide off!

🪑 You can see this chair in Wycombe Museum’s permanent galleries.

Chair of the Month is a partnership between Wycombe Museum and the Regional Furniture Society.
