Wing Chairs

Every home needs a space to relax in and our fantastic range of wing chairs provide just that! Wing chairs are sometimes called fireside chairs, and for good reason. Their design is perfect for enjoying the warmth of a fire while your back and sides are protected from chilly draughts.

These chairs were not the earliest furniture to use this approach to keeping warm. Wings were also used on some of the high-backed wooden settles found in English manor houses and inns long before the new kind of upholstered chair brought an extra level of comfort to the late 17th century. We now know these as wing or wingback chairs.

Simple and elegant in its design we feel this chair is a timeless classic, whether you want a traditional Victorian armchair, a French bedroom chair or a fully upholstered statement chair we have a model to suit. All of our wing chairs can be painted/polished and upholstered to your bespoke requirements, take a look at our Pinterest board for ideas and inspiration.

Alternatively we sell raw wing chair frames on our Etsy shop if you fancy painting/upholstering your own.
