What I like about a wing chair is the comfort it provides for both reading and snoozing, add an ottoman and you’ve got an all out lounger! You can’t go wrong with purchasing a quality wing back chair. They will always be popular, whether they are at the top of the trend list or not.
Hans J. Wenger/Carl Hansen Wing Chair
In 1960, Danish designer Hans J. Wegner created an upholstered modern version of the wing back chair which saw only limited production. Now, Carl Hansen & Son, the Danish furniture maker, has dusted off the drawings to bring this contemporary classic back to life. With its calm, clean lines and exceptional comfort - hallmarks of Wegner's best work - the Wingchair's timeless appeal has won awards at IMM Cologne 2006 and at the Copenhagen International Furniture Fair.
