    It is thought that the first blend of a chair and daybed originated in Egypt. The earliest known models were made from palm sticks lashed together with pieces of cord or rawhide. Later, Egyptian bed-makers introduced mortise-and-tenon construction and wood bed frames veneered with bone or ebony, in common use with many examples being found in the1stdynasty (3100–2890 BC) tombs.
     
    Ancient Greek art depicts gods and goddesses lounging in this type of chair.The Greeks changed from the normal practice of sitting at a table to the far more distinctive practice of reclining on couches as early as the8thcentury BC.
     
    The Romans also used a daybed for reclining in the daytime and to sleep on at night. At Roman banquets, the usual number of persons occupying each bed was three, with three daybeds forming three sides of a small square, so that thetriclinium.The Romans did not practice upholstery, so the couches were made comfortable with pillows, loose covers and animal skins.
     

    Mahogany
    is probably one of the largest ‘families' of hardwood, having many different varieties within its own species.
     
    Mahogany has been used for centuries in ship building, house building, furniture making etc and is the core structure of just about every 19th century vanity box, dressing case or jewellery box. It became more of a Victorian trend to dress Mahogany with these decorative veneers, such as Rosewood, Kingwood, Burr Walnut and Coromandel, so that the actual Mahogany was almost hidden from view.
     
    Mahogany itself is a rich reddish brown wood that can range from being plain in appearance to something that is so vibrant, figured and almost three dimensional in effect.
     
    Although Mahogany was most often used in its solid form, it also provided some beautifully figured varieties of veneer like ‘Flame' Mahogany and ‘Fiddleback' Mahogany (named after its preferred use in the manufacture of fine musical instruments).
     
    Cuban Mahogany was so sought after, that by the late1850's, this particular variety became all but extinct.
