The Wing Chair

If ever there was a  furniture style that not only survives but transcends the ages, it would have to be the wing chair.  Once a very traditional and functional style, the iconic shape has become a much desired design element that has been reinterpreted in contemporary, traditional, glam and farmhouse genres.  The wing chair stands on its own in any space and is made available in every price range.

Here are a very few examples of the diversity of style in the modern wing chair.
