are probably the most picturesque of furniture pieces due to their
distinct style with high back, winged arms and tall legs.
This chair feels most at home in living rooms, executive offices or
study rooms but also it has the ability to look great anywhere due to
their outstanding style and low space requirements.
The original wingback chairs were first introduced during the Victorian
times and were made for a very specific reason and their initial purpose
was to keep out the cold. Traditionally placed in front of a fire
place, the back and wings and armrests worked as shield to keep the cold
drafts out and to keep the heat in. The soft cushioned seat and soft
backrest does ensure that the user could sit in the chair for long time
without feeling ache and discomfort.
