Picture the scene. A dusty old gentleman is spending the evening at his dining club. He’s relaxing, enjoying a pre-dinner aperitif as he checks his stock portfolio in the FT. A roaring fire warms him as a discrete waiter leans down to offer him an immaculate amuse bouche.
Now here’s the question. In what kind of chair is our man sitting? I suspect most will see him in a wingback chair (or a Chesterfield sofa). It’s an image as traditional as ravens at The Tower or Barbary monkeys on the Rock of Gibraltar. Wingback chairs have a rich history and are one of the oldest chair designs around.
The distinctive wings acted as a kind of draught excluder in the days before central heating. They also offer a degree of privacy for the occupant. Maybe to help them keep a low profile as they plot their fiendish plans. Perhaps that’s why many Hollywood villains favour wingback chairs.
Whatever you decide to use your wingback chair for, our buying guide will help you make the right choice for you and the way you live.
