A throne or chair is a piece of furniture that dwarves use in their daily routines once placed as a seat (the generic term). A throne can be made from stone at a mason's workshop with masonry, metal at a forge with blacksmithing, glass at a glass furnace with glassmaking, or from wood at a carpenter's workshop by a dwarf with the carpentry labor (where it's listed as a "chair"). The material has no effect on its functionality; all thrones work the same. Note that for an equal skill level, wood chairs are produced faster than rock thronesVerify, though different materials have different final base value multipliers.

The build menu option chair will allow you to place any throne/chair as a "seat", but only indoors.

Seats are a standard feature in dining rooms -- each table should have an available adjacent seat to allow dwarves to sit while they eat at that table - if a dwarf is forced to eat standing up, or without a table, a bad thought will result. Seats and tables are not automatically paired, so an arrangement that forces 1 seat:1 table is recommended, so a dwarf sitting at one seat does not take the only available table to another seat.

Seats are also used to create offices (and throne rooms, essentially the same thing) for nobles.
