The notion of reconnecting with the past may spur us to find antique furniture pieces and welcome them in our homes, but this is not the only reason why we do so. Our taste for old glamour sends us back to adoring beautiful carvings and exquisite craftsmanship of traditional and classical designs. Nothing beats Victorian armchairs in magnificence and intricacy. They are luxurious to look at and even more luxurious to sink in to. The luscious velvet upholstery envelops your body like a warm embrace.
The wingback, or wing chair is the classic model of armchair that has survived throughout the ages and is still popular today. This kind of form is completely upholstered in various sorts of fabric, and has arms and a wing-shaped, high back that meets the seat of the chair at a 90 degree angle or bigger. The wings to the high back, wrap around somewhat to the front of the chair, and provide the sitter with some protection from drafts. very essential for those nippy nights in the parlor room of your 16th century fortress!.
Retro style The retro swivel armchair is actually inspired by the designs of the late 60s and early 70s when solid, simple loud colors and unique shapes were a popular aesthetic in furniture making. This chair is a great addition for those who like all things retro, but the downside is that it has limited adjustability. The chair rests on a single swivel post and a circular stand, you can use a foot pedal to raise or lower the height of the seat and that is about it.
