The Wainscot Wing Chair- By Victoria Hagan

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 fireplace. Furthermore, the
wing chair was created in the 18th century overall, to
focus more on a feminine chair thats curves accentuate that
of a woman that would be sitting in the chair.
