The whole world seen through a North American lens. 

Every UK Anglican church I've ever been in was full of pews. Might have been due to most of them having been stolen from the Roman Catholics, though. If you want folding chairs, you have to go Nonconformist, or Methodist, etc., but even then it's not clear-cut.

Curiously, pews were not a RC thing

Pews are a recent invention in the history of the Church and are a tradition adopted from the Protestant Reformation to relieve worshipers of the need to stand during a homily. In many cases it is an invention welcomed by parishioners, especially for longer homilies. Yet, it is an invention not accepted by all Christians and the use of pews continues to be debated in certain churches.

Orthodoxs do not want pews.
