The history of the wingback armchair

Although the wingback chair is seen in modern homes today, it originated in the fifteenth century when it was made in wood and didn’t have the comfort of padding and upholstery that we see in the models nowadays. The wingback chair was originally invented as a way to shelter from drafts in uninsulated houses.  The wingtips were pronounced in order to stop the breeze from getting to your ears and neck. The high back and sides cocooned the user and was usually placed in front of an open fire for further warmth. In later years, they became popular in upmarket gentleman’s clubs to give privacy and shield the gentry from prying eyes when important matters were being discussed. Luckily in todays modern world, we don’t need to worry as much about drafty homes and creating privacy screening, but they still have a use and are as popular as ever.
