Winging Their Way Back!

Originally created to protect royalty from drafts in those old stone castles, the wing chair is again falling into the "What's New for the Upcoming Year".

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.

Tom Dixon Wing Chair
Traditionally manufactured, fully upholstered high-back lounge chair.Solid wood frame with mohair velvet upholstery and solid turned leg with black lacquered or natural finish. Mohair velvet available in 15 colours.

Alexandra Angle's Wingback Chair
From Aqua Vitae Design - a modern take on the classic wingback chair. Available in available in different fabrics and sizes. Comfortable by design and a twist on the traditional style.

I will be taking the next two weeks off for Christmas break but will be back in 2009 with fresh ideas. All the best to you and your family this holiday season!
