Wingback Chairs with a Twist
The classic wingback chair goes from fine to fantastic when re-imagined with these modern design twists!
1. Stylized Wings. Look for soft protruding wings that transition smoothly into the arms. Our favorites are Mitchell Gold’s Juliette Chair, Lee Industries Host Chair, and Soren Willadsen’s Teak Easy Chair (Above Left). Or, opt for lower wings which embrace the torso and double as arm rests, as seen in Dwell Studio’s Cooper Chair. (Above).
2. Tailored Legs. For a timeless contemporary look, opt for slim linear legs that are straight, slightly angled, or gently flared. For a vintage nod to the past, we suggest tapered legs.
3. Bold Graphics. Instantly modernize a chair with a bold geometric or striped fabric. Remember to stick with medium to large scale prints for the biggest impact.
