wingback chair guide

by Grace Bonney

d*s reader angela asked if i would round up some great wingback chairs on the market. wingbacks are some of my favorite types of chairs, despite the fact that they don’t exactly encourage napping. i tend to enjoy what i call “stylishly lazy” furniture that lets you lounge and nap while you watch tv without being overstuffed and heavy. but sometimes you need something with a little structure, or a place to sit and read where you won’t fall asleep. so now that i sound like someone who does nothing but fall asleep in furniture, i’ll let the chairs do the talking. some of these models can get pretty pricey so a good thing to remember is that the cheaper models shown here can be reupholstered in a bright, kicky pattern to keep them looking sharp and modern. click here for the full roundup or just click “read more” below. enjoy!
