Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Wingbacks” and we’ve got loads of them.
We love the sophisticated look of a wingback chair. A step up from an easy chair or club chair, these “wings” were meant to enclose the head and torso, keeping heat in and protect from drafts. Often found near a fireplace or in a study, wingbacks have come a long way. Now when mixed with a variety of patterns and materials, they are less stuffy and a lot more fun. This round up of wingbacks will have you sitting back and relaxing with a glass of merlot in no time.
