I found one instance of the word chair in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This quote is from Chapter 7 - A Mad Tea-Party.
"No room! No room!" they cried out when they saw Alice coming. "There's PLENTY of room!" said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table.
