Wing Chairs

Wing Chairs
If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you know that I love wing chairs with a bit of a contemporary twist. Add nail heads or a chic fabric and before you know it, tradition feels fresh again. Here are a few of my favorite wing chairs and a few settings showing them in up-to-date form. Above: A chic, smooth version from Pearson.

Above: A slightly detailed and modified wing chair from Oly. This is just the right size and proportion to use around a dining table.

Above: My absolute favorite. Mrs. Wing from Brunschwig & Fils.

Above: Celerie Kemble uses Brunschwig's Mrs. Wing chair elegantly in front of this desk.

Using wing chairs around a dining table is a great idea. Consider size and proportion when selecting them.

Another great spot for a wing chair: the bedroom. A perfect accent piece and just the right shape to envelop you after a long day.
