Is there anyone out there that doesn't own at least one wing back chair? These iconic chairs have been around for hundreds of years and remain popular today. The concept behind the wing chair's design is quite practical - they were meant to be used fireside to capture heat and trap it between the chair's wings. The wings also served to protect its user from cold drafts.
Early wingback chairs from the 1700's.
Wing chairs are still popular today for their classic good looks and comfort. Some versions even have a modern feel.

If you love the look of these modern beauties but don't have a big budget for the designer pieces, why not create your own modern classic? Any sturdy wingchair can be transformed through fabric and/or paint. And isn't it fun to make it your own with fabric and trim selections that make your heart skip a beat?
