Wing chair

The wing chair It is a classic piece of interior design that is familiar to all of us. Fundamental piece in the decoration of the bourgeois class homes during the 18th century, in the last decade it has regained the prominence lost thanks to modern versions that combine design and functionality.

These armchairs have as a piece of furniture a long journey. Although there are differences in their origin, there are many who establish it in the England of the late 17th century. Where the winters were cold, the high back and side wings characteristic of this piece offered families protection against drafts and helped them keep warm.

Anyway, this piece reached its maximum popularity in the 18th century. It was at that time when the design gained comfort and acquired an aesthetic that is not so far from the current one. It then occupied a privileged place in the bedrooms and living rooms of the bourgeois dwellings and continued doing so for the subsequent centuries until its democratization.
