Scope note
Comfortable chairs for reading, particularly 18th-century armchairs with padded, leather-covered, saddle-shaped seats and an adjustable platform to hold a book projecting from the back; designed so that the occupant may either sit on it in a normal way or straddle the seat facing the back. For adjustable reading platforms that are not attached to chairs, use "reading desks." For backward-facing chairs intended for viewing card games, use "voyeuses."
