1760-1775 American (New York) Roundabout chair at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston - From the curators' comments: "Chairs with round backs were made throughout the colonies and used in several different rooms, often paired with a desk or writing table. The low arms fit under a writing surface, while still providing elbow support for the user. Although variously called corner chairs, round chairs, three-cornered chairs, or triangular chairs, the most common name is roundabout chair."
