The Classic Wing Chair

There will always be something classic about a
Wing Chair that it will never go out of style. I thought
to do a post on different styles of wing chairs and
where you can start your search in buying one.

I really love the shape and fabric of the first wing
chair above. You can find the chair online at Williams

Here is a modern and classy wing chair with
nail heads you can find from Z Gallerie.

A very artistic and unique Wing Chair
really makes this piece unique.

Also from Woodson & Rummerfield's are these
gorgeous tufted Wing chairs with silver legs.

From the store affiliated with Joe Nye is the
store Downtown. This is a really fun Wing chair
they offer as a part of their line of furnishings.

And another rendition of it in this whimsical
fluffy fabric. Looks like a sheep :) But Oh so very
soft, I would love to snuggle up in it with a book.

A more modern take on the Wing chair by West Elm.

A modernized version by William Sonoma
in brilliant green fabric to boot!

Ballard Designs offers furnishings that you
can have upholstered with fabrics of your

Here's a midcentury modern danish looking
wing chair with matching ottoman from the

I love the style of the Jayson H&G one!!! But I'd take them all home :)

The one by Ballard looks pretty nice, but generally I'm not sure these are very elegant. I sort of prefer something more minimal.

Cote de Texas said...

Wingback chairs are a favorite of mine. Can you believe we have 4 at our house? Enjoyed the post.

Most decidedly the sheep! Reminds me of growing up in the countryside - but this is actually better, because we kids naturally enough weren't allowed to sit on the sheep... Great collection!
Best wishes - Trudi

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

the Woodson & Rummerfield chairs are my favorite! very classic.

Emily said...

I love the second one from Woodson...there is just something about a wing chair that is so comforting- especially in wintertime! Thanks for reminding me of how much I love them!

Topsy Turvy said...

My favorite is the last one. Nice collection, Karen.

I love chairs!! And especially I liked the tufted white chairs from Woodson & Rummerfield!! If I did'nt have dogs, I would have loved to have those in my livingroom!

Alkemie said...

Thanks for all of your WOnderful Comments!!

London Calling - Wow 4 wing chairs -that's fantastic!

Melanie - I wonder what * bergeres à oreilles * translates to in English?

Trudi - I had to smile for your reason behind the sheep wing chair LOL.


Natalie Galitzine said...

I absolutely want the sheep, but in the shape of the danish looking wing chair :o) Just the sight of this fluffy wonder makes me feel more comfortable and warm. Just like you, I would love to indulge in reading a good long book in such cuddly softness. + I would also like an ottoman (as the danish looking wing chair had, but matching to the sheep of course :o)

But I also hope that in my future living room, I will go a bit crazy and have several different chairs :o) Now I know where to look for inspiration!

I have to say again: it is so positive and inspiring to look through your posts :o) !!!

Such a great collection--partial to the tufted Wing chairs with the silver legs, although the modern one from Z Gallerie is sleekly beautiful. Oh, and congratulations on your mention in the Washington Post, Karen!

A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe
that you should publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don't discuss such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
