What kind of wingback chair do you actually need?
If you want to create a quiet sanctuary in your home, there’s a way you’ll never do anything wrong – the wing chair. It’s just the perfect place to read your favorite book, enjoy a fragrant tea or just gather your thoughts.
Everybody sometimes needs time just for themselves and therefore a certain place for letting go. To be honest, we can not imagine a flat without a comfortable chair. This piece of furniture has been asserting itself for a long time in the interior and has witnessed a significant development.
Elegance in fine leather by Hans J. Wegner
Each style epoch has created its special armchair shapes – such as the Rococo chaise longue, the Art Déco club chair or the 1950s-style cocktail chair. This is how the classics in the design of chairs were born. Many of them are very popular nowadays and even have a high collector value. One of the most famous wing chairs is the Winchester. He is always made of high quality leather. Real connoisseurs worship him and definitely want to own him.
The wingback chairs have large ear-like upholstery in the head area and are originally from England, where they once stood in front of the British fireplaces. The triumphal march of the wing chair really came on in the 17th century. At that time, the nobles discovered that the vaults on the backrest offer a very practical protection against drafts. Since then, this chair is one of the most popular ever.

When choosing your chair you should already consider something. It is important to first clarify for yourself which function the furniture should play. Where it’s going to be, in which interior design style it should be and what materials you want it to be. We would like to explain a lot about the last point in particular. Natural materials and materials have been quite popular lately. Of course, they are also associated with the green lifestyle and connected with the environmentally friendly way of thinking.
Genuine leather, cotton, silk or linen feel very pleasant on the skin and at the same time ensure optimum moisture regulation. Unfortunately they have some disadvantages with furniture. The more natural the surfaces are, the more durable they are. They also change color over time, especially when they are in the sun. For these reasons, we recommend that you choose such materials for your wingback chairs, which are a blend of natural and synthetic fibers. If you are into leather, you should consider whether you do not opt for a high-quality synthetic leather.
