      I can't document this myself, but I've heard from multiple sources that a "director's" chair actually IS medieval. It just doesn't seem medieval to people who only think of it in terms of a movie set. I hope some furniture mavens will chime in on this and confirm. Canvas or leather would both be appropriate, if so.

        There is certainly a close wood analog, the "X chair", that I believe can be documented back to Tudor England at least. (Don't quote me on that, as I'm working from memory and didn't specifially look it up just now.)
