Wing-back chairs are an enduring favorite for living rooms. They are designed with high backs, arm rests and winged sides, providing a formal touch. The generous size of a wingback makes it an ideal counterpart to a large sofa, since it can give the room a sense of balance in scale. It’s most commonly placed next to a fireplace. Protecting the inhabitant from drafts and the heat from a roaring fire was the original purpose of the chair’s side wings, and some things, like Canadian winters, never change.
If you want to try something a little daring and different, use your wingback chairs as end chairs at the head and foot of a dining table. There’s something undeniably thronelike about the stately shape of wingback chairs, and as dining chairs they give meals added gravitas. The wingback chair’s style and sexy curves can turn any room from drab to fab. Don’t be afraid to show this one off in a colourful hue!
