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.
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.
These chairs have attached wings which emerge from the back rest and stretch into the arm rests. The wings join the back at a 90 degree or even wider angle so that the person sitting in the chair is completely enveloped in it. The wing back chair was actually designed such a way that the upper body would be protected from the cold winds drifting into old houses. They also protected the delicate skin of the gentle ladies from the excessive heat emanating from the fireplace.
