Wingback Chairs

Small fireside wingback chairs

Sloane & Sons wing chairs are small fireside chairs that have “wings" mounted to the back of the chair that stretch down to the arm rests. Wing back chairs are immersed in history and practicality, first being introduced to England in the 1600’s, to bring a stylish addition to libraries or formal living rooms, and realistically, the design has changed very little since then. Historically, the purpose of the "wings" was to enclose the head of the sitter in order to provide comfortable protection from drafts, and to capture the heat from the fire in the area where the person would be sitting.

In present times, wingback chairs are still often used near a fireplace but this belies the versatility of wing chairs in bedrooms, studies, hallways and indeed company reception areas. Placed in a corner of a room with a lamp nearby, this chair becomes a super reading chair for your newspaper or Kindle. Placed in the bedroom, it is the perfect resting placing to put on your shoes or just take it easy. Instead of a swivel chair in your study have a wing chair to relax in as your desk companion, while you reply to emails or write that novel you promised to yourself years ago, or if you are a business, why not welcome visitors to your company with comfortable chairs that match your decor. Thanks to its height and stately presence, a wing chair can give purpose to any space.

The current trend is for wing chairs to be upholstered and have wooden legs but there would be nothing wrong in painting the legs of your chair in a bright colour if you wished to ring the changes as time progresses. Embrace its versatility rather than pigeon hole it in history.
