- (If looking for a throne room, see office.)
A throne or chair is a piece of furniture that dwarves use in their daily routines once built 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 uild menu option hair will allow you to place any throne/chair as a "seat", but only indoors.
Seats, like tables, are an obvious part of dining rooms -- Dining at a seat in a high quality dining hall will give an (additional) happy thought. If a dwarf wants to eat he will look for a free seat. If he doesn't find one he will have an unhappy thought. If he finds a seat but no free table next to it, he will also have an unhappy thought. Dwarves do not share tables; a dwarf sitting at a seat will have exclusive use of the table next to it. Having enough seats and tables and placing them in an unambiguous 1:1 pattern avoids these bad thoughts.
