Wingback Chairs

Antique, New and Vintage Wingback Chairs

They may not offer structural support, but the wings on classic wingback chairs certainly do have a purpose or did, when they were first conceived in England in the 1600s.


Back then, the armchair protrusions were meant to protect the sitter from drafts and from the strong heat radiating from the large fireplaces that were popular at the time. This explains why the wingback is so strongly associated with cozying up by the fireplace.


Although the functional aspect of a wingback may be obsolete in the 21st century, the chairs have maintained their popularity over the years and have seen waves of revivals, from mid-century modern spinoffs to playful contemporary adaptations (like the Bear chair by Pierre Yovanovitch, wherein the place of wings are furry ears).
