In the dream world there are many interpretations of dreaming with a chair.
The main thing to keep in mind is the place where you see the chair, in what shape it is placed and what its design characteristics are (what it is made of), this will make it much easier to know what its interpretation is. Remember that details are paramount.
Chair – Meaning and Symbolism
It was a joke from Father Nazareno Taddei when he began his lectures on cinema. To the surprise of the listeners, he replied by specifying that it was a photo of a chair but not the chair.
In other words, the photos, the cinema, the drawings represent reality but they are not reality. They present it as the photographer or artist sees it or remembers it (or imagines it) but it is always a substitute for the “thing”, never for the thing itself.
The representation can be more or less faithful but it can never be superimposed on the original so much that it identifies with it. The concern of Fr. Taddei concerned the aspect of education in reading the images of life presented by the cinema.
I don’t know if the illustrious communication scholar had in mind the text of the book of Wisdom where the origin of idolatry is also attributed to the artist’s skill in sculpting statues so beautiful as to induce people to consider them the personification of the same gods and not representations of the divinity.
“The crowd, attracted by the charm of the work, considered the represented kings object of adoration”, to the point of attributing “to stones or wood the incommunicable name” that is YHWH for the Hebrews (cfr. Wisdom 14, 18- 21).
The identification of the image of reality with reality itself, which Fr. Taddei and the text of Wisdom attributed to the suggestion exerted by the images, it must also be attributed to the word, pronounced or written.
Each word recalls an object, an action, a feeling but it is neither one nor the other, it is just a sign that refers to something different. Thus even a set of words organized to form the story of an event will never be the event but always and only a sign that refers to something else.
It may seem obvious, but we often hear and read statements from people who believe that what they have read in the newspapers or heard on the radio or seen on TV corresponds exactly to what actually happened. In a word, the narration of the thing is exchanged with the object represented, just like with images.
As long as the misunderstanding refers to a sporting event, it may be the subject of even fierce discussions between the various fans, but when politics or economics are involved, the consequences can be very serious.
The same also happens when reading the Bible we are faced with stories of historical events or the presentation of characters from the past.
Sometimes they are described so well as to make you think you are in front of the character in flesh and blood or they involve the reader so much that they give him the impression of being among the protagonists of the events narrated. It is the strength of art in all its manifestations.
Everything goes smoothly when it comes to communicating emotions. But things change when we are faced with events told in words.
They attached great importance to oral testimonies, to the memories of the protagonists handed down within families or the tribe they belong to.
The word spoken aloud was the undisputed protagonist of communication in life and then in history.
The Hebrew language highlighted this centrality of the word by attributing to it the ability to become the object it indicated, when it was pronounced by God, the author of all things.
According to the book of Genesis, “God said: ‘Let there be light’ and there was light” (Genesis 1,3). Not for nothing in Hebrew the term dabar means word and also thing.
The same characteristic was attributed to personal names that indicated some particularity of the wearer.
Thus, for example, the son of Abraham is called Isaac (from the Hebrew verb tsachaq to laugh “he will laugh”) in reference to the incredulous laughter of his mother Sarah when she heard that she would have a child despite being considered sterile and very old (Genesis 18, 9-15; 21.1-7).
When Jesus himself wants to assign an important task to Simon son of Jonah, he will change his name to Kefa which means rock, which later became Peter, to indicate that he would be the foundation of the future church (Matthew 16,18).
Chair – Dream Symbolism
Dreaming of a wheelchair: Even people who are not disabled are surprised when dreaming of a wheelchair.
But as has been said above, the world of dreams is abstract and the meaning varies depending on what the dream conveys.
For example, if you dream that you use it, it says that you will go through a series of doubts, such as concerns about work.

Dreaming of a plastic chair: If in this case you usually dream of a plastic chair, let me tell you that plastic objects are deciphered as the recommendation of the subconscious mind for the dreamer, specifically in thinking that maybe it is being false or not he is being true to himself.
That is, this material symbolizes the opposite of lies, but rather is related to the genuine.
If you dream of the plastic present in a home furniture, it also symbolizes that you will receive a message of prosperity and abundance in the future.

Our culture leads us to seek scrupulous correspondence even in the details between words and deeds, which must be documented.
For us, the historian must find documents, interpret them and organize them and we think it is the only way to tell the past.
Even the ancient historians looked for documents but the archives they could consult were very different from ours.
