Though wingback chairs may seem more at home in a traditional country home than a modern loft apartment, there are several companies making updated versions that will work in any space. If you love the high back and solid arms of a wingback chair, then check out these fresh takes that help modernize a classic chair. Dylan Leather Chair from Crate & Barrel:The sleek curves and narrow arms of this updated wingback combine with the classic nailhead trim to create a stunning leather wingback ready for any interior. Chelsea Wing Chair from Williams Sonoma Home: This wingback chair features a curved back that softens the lines of the original and is available in a wide variety of colors and fabrics. Wegner Wing Chair from Room & Board: This fabulous wingback was actually updated back in 1960, so though it looks as fresh today as it did then, it now qualifies as a classic in its own right. Belfort Wingback Upholstered Dining Chair from Restoration Hardware: Though this wingback has recognizable lines, the dimensions have been reduced to transform it from a sitting room to a dining room chair- a wonderful reinterpretation of a classic. Seagrass Wingback Armchair from Pottery Barn: This chair features a traditional wingback chair in a non-traditional natural material. Though designed for sun-rooms and patios, this chair made of an eco-friendly renewable resource is relaxed enough to work in a casual living or family room. Image: Photos as linked above.
