Note: French stools with folding crossed legs; distinct from "tabourets" which have fixed upright legs, and used in domestic environments. For folding stools with ecclesiastical origins generally, use "faldstools." For folding chairs used by bishops or other prelates in the chancel of a church, use "faldistories."

Gebruik 'bisschopskrukken' voor vouwstoelen met een kerkelijke oorsprong en gebruik ‘faldistoria’ voor vouwstoelen die door bisschoppen of andere prelaten in het koor van een kerk worden gebruikt. 
Spanish ..... Taburetes franceses con patas cruzadas plegables; se diferencian del "tabouret" que tiene patas rectas fijas.
