The caquetoire, or conversation chair, was an armchair style which emerged during the European Renaissance. It was largely used in France, & is one of the most well-known pieces of furniture from the French Renaissance. The term appeared around 1557 & was used to describe a chair with armrests which was used to sit close by the fire to chatter (caqueter).
