Ancient Egypt Furniture Part 2




Antique Furniture in Ancient Egypt

The egyptians were used to sitting and sleeping on the ground or on mats  of reed , rush , papyrus , halfa grass and palm fiber , and even in the 18th dynasty guests at a feast would often squat upon such mats.

Mud brick divans too served as both seat and bed antique furniture and in earlier periods many quite prosperous individuals slept on no more than a simple roll of linen.Thus although beds and other fragments have in fact survived from the 1th dynasty, Egyptian furniture is altogether rare in tombs of the old and middle kingdoms.
