The Saoraja Lapinceng is a noble house of Bugis tribe in South Sulawesi and Banua layuk is a noble house of Mamasa tribe in West Sulawesi. The elements of traditional houses have specific meanings, known by members of certain group and honoured as a code in community. These are including seating positions within the house, based on social stra-ta. Nowadays, the custom loses its importance as chairs become more common for sitting activity. Qualitative research was ap-plied to approach this topic supported by interviews and photo-graphs.
