The Secret History of the Conversation Chair

quote [ It’s taken many names, shapes and forms over the centuries – the conversation chair, the courting bench, a tête-à-tête, a chaperone chair, the vis-à-vis, gossip chair or the indiscret. Considered the pinnacle of sophistication and style during the Gilded and Victorian age, if you were entertaining the fashionable elite, one simply wasn’t running a home worth visiting without a conversation chair in one’s parlour. ]

There aint a man alive that don't like the smell of their own farts. This chair makes me wonder if both of you let loose at the exact same time, would it be a mutual like or dislike on the aroma?
