What does it mean when you dream about a chair?

A chair may symbolize sitting down to take time out to contemplate a situation before proceeding. If the dreamer is providing the chair, it’s time to sit for a while with oneself to contemplate new directions. If the chair is being offered, the dreamer should be open for taking advice. If, however, the dreamer finds himself or herself on the “hot seat,” then caution should prevail.

3. A device used to support reinforcing bars.
