The wing back chair style has been in vogue for centuries. Typically favored by royal courts and the royal personages, these chairs are designed for complete relaxation and rest. The Queen Anne wing back chairs are some of the most well known chairs which are fully upholstered with exposed wooden legs. It has 4 cabriole legs which rest on padded feet and the shoulders of the chair are slightly drooping and curved. This is to emphasize the feminine form of the chair, rather than the King George wing back chairs which have squared shoulders! These chairs also typically have carved scroll motifs on the knees and the crest. Some of the chairs kept in museums which have been preserved since the royal days are actually gilded!
Slipcovers for wingback chairs are the hip these days. It can be hard to throw away old furniture pieces that the family has used for many years. You can preserve it and one way to give your chair a new look is with the slipcover.
