The threshold space is not occupied by chairs innocent of meaning nor is it occupied with chairs without style, the style of the chair can reflect the households ideation.


These chairs act as a status symbol, as shown by the painting of Vincent Van Gogh, Van Goghs Chair painted in 1888 (same year as the electric chair was invented) reflects a form of social hierarchy in its design, painting oneself as a peasants chair to be sat on implies a sense of personal self-abasement.

The single chair with it various incarnations, empowers the seer to ask if the chair in the threshold acts as a signature for the house, the identifiable monogram that is at the root of recognition.
