Looking for that perfect chair to add style and, most importantly, comfortable seating to your living room? Then look no further than this week’s Design Dictionary term – the wingback chair, a large, often overstuffed chair with sidepieces attached to the sides of the back known as “ears” or “wings.” With its distinct style, it can give a sophisticated twist to any room without sacrificing any of the comfort that you are seeking.
For a classic wingback that will add traditional flare to your room, try our Leighton Chair. Elegant feet and custom upholstery create a refined style, while the characteristically over-stuffed cushions and wings create a seat so comfortable you’ll never want to get up. For more masculine appeal, upholster the Leighton Chair and matching ottoman in a rich brown leather that any man would approve.
Try the Stansfield Chair to add a more sophisticated vibe to your room (picture dark mahogany, plenty of book shelves and dim lighting). Beautiful nailhead trim accents the leather and adds just enough detail to complement the chair’s attention-grabbing shape.
While the wingback is traditionally used in the living room, we love the idea of using a smaller wingback for dining seating. Our Bialy Chair puts a modern spin on this classic when used in a dining room setting. Smaller in shape and sans arms, the Bialy Chair is just the right size to fit around the table and creates a comfortable, chic style. Short on space in your dining room or kitchen? Try adding a small wingback chair just at the heads of the table to cut back on bulk without sacrificing any of the style.
