- (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 thrones[Verify], 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.
