Wing chairs are sometimes called fireside chairs, and for good reason. Their design is perfect for enjoying the warmth of a fire while your back and sides are protected from chilly draughts. However these chairs are not the earliest pieces furniture to use this approach to keeping comfortably warm. Wings were also used on some of the high-backed wooden settles found in English manor houses and pubs/inns. Usually these settles were bare wooden benches but sometimes long cushions were added for comfort, long before the new kind of upholstered chair brought an extra level of comfort to the late 17th century. The same chairs soon appeared in colonial America. Like other Queen Anne furniture of the early 1700s, they often had cabriole legs and curving lines distinguishing them from earlier styles.The famous cabinet-makers of the age, like Chippendale in London, designed elegant frames to set off the upholstery. If you want a true antique, remember that "Queen Anne style" is just that: a style and not a guarantee that a chair is 300 years old.
Amongst the wide range of occasional chairs available today the wingback chair has perhaps the most enduring pedigree. Few people browsing for furniture for their home today realise that the wing chair has a history spanning hundreds of years. The wingback chair is a chair, which is usually fully upholstered, with wings rising up from the arm and joining the back at a 90-degree or wider angle. The original purpose for the wings were assumed to be to prevent drafts in old houses from reaching the upper body or to protect the delicate skin of gentrified ladies from the heat of a roaring fire in the hearth. As one of the oldest and most popular forms of furniture, the wing chair, also known as a fireside chair or an easy chair, is easily recognized by its pair of protruding wings, its considerable depth, its dramatic presence, and its upholstered framework. The first wing chair appeared in the late 1600s, but it was not until after 1720 that its popularity became widespread.

Many people make the mistake of shopping for looks rather than considering the quality of the chair. While you dont want to purchase an ugly chair that wont fit into your homes decor, there are some things that you should consider. First of all, the chair needs to be comfortable. Dont just perch on the edge of a chair to see how you like it. Scoot it and see how it feels. If you tend to lounge in your furniture, then lounge in it. If you like to curl up in a chair to read, try that out as well. Second, check the quality of the stitching. You can easily do this by pulling the seams in opposite directions. If the seams gap then it wont be long before they tear (and if the seams are already damaged in the store, then give the chair a pass). Third, what is the frame made from? The truth is that cheap furniture is made from cheap materials. Often high density cardboard is used on the cheapest of furniture; which is why they are so inexpensive. Wood is the best option for your armless chair. While this is going to be more expensive than other materials, the biggest benefit is that your chair is going to last for a lifetime. A good quality chair can be reupholstered when your style changes, a cheap chair cannot.
Furniture chair width is another consideration. This might be taken into account when thinking of the size of the person who will be using the chair as well as the purpose of the chair. If the purpose of the chair is to curl up and read, you might opt for a larger and wider furniture chair. If the person themselves is fairly wide, you should allow for a fist space either side of the person once seated. Back height and neck support should also be considered in relation to the user and purpose if the chair. Likewise the fabric and stuffing the chair is made from should be considered. A chair that is too soft can be difficult to get out of whilst a chair that is too firm can leave you with a sore bottom.
