‘To travel is to live’ – Hans Christian Anderson
Some of these chairs have travelled as their owners moved house, others are souvenirs of travel. Chairs are generally too big to be an ideal travel souvenir – perhaps why there are not so many of these! These chairs come from Romania, the USA and Madagascar, as well as the possibly less exotic locations of Flackwell Heath and Thame in Oxfordshire. Even in this section some of the chairs were locally made, reflecting, as each section does, the importance of chair making locally.
