A wing chair is a tall-backed, heavily upholstered easy chair with armrests and large "wings", or "lugs", mounted to the armrests and enclosing the head or torso areas of the body to protect against drafts. They first appeared in the late 17th century—when the wings were sometimes known as “cheeks”—and they have maintained their popularity through a series of revivals ever since. Often they form part of a set, or suite.

Now days, they still have the wings but they come in all shapes, sizes, materials and looks.

Which one is your favorite?
