With twin-panelled back, an ogee-profiled top rail, and round-ended flat outsplayed arms above fielded panelled sides, the rope seat typically historically replaced using pine boards.

This form of chair is often referred to as a 'lambing' chair, suggesting they were used by shepherds whilst attending their flock through the night. Although there is no firm evidence for their use as such, they do originate in regions with a predominance of sheep farming countryside.
