Chinese Floor Table

In ancient times, before tables and chairs became popular, the Chinese sat on the floor. They had a table with small legs; in ancient Chinese, it was called a bed. Something that has been around since ancient times, in the dialects of Hokkien and Teochew, they still call tables’ as beds. This situation lasts until the song dynasty, and modern Japanese and Koreans still have the habit they learned long before the Chinese. So when people want to respect each other in a room, either sitting kneeling or cross-legged, the usual way is to keep their hands on the ground, usually left palm on the top of right; then they bend down, touching the back of the right hand with their heads. With chairs and tables becoming popular, it will be difficult for people to bow their hands to the floor to show respect when sitting in a chair.
