Curule Chairs are a style of chair reserved in ancient Rome for the use of the highest government dignitaries. Usually made like a camp stool with curved legs; they are one of the most ancient forms of furniture.  Made with or without arms, the name is believed to be derived from the ‘chariot’ (currus). Over history, this style of chair served as a place of judgement.  They became associated with senior magistrates, officials and emperors.
