There’s just nothing as classically beautiful as a Windsor chair.
Named for the town of Windsor in England, it was first thought to have been made in the 16th century by wheelwrights. Today, there are many versions and styles of the Windsor, but it is characterized as having its legs and back inserted into a seat that's been formed into a saddle or rounded shape for comfort. It has turned legs and usually a steam-bent wood back piece in a fan or bowed shape.
Windsor chairs fit into any interior, whether traditional or clean-lined and contemporary.
It’s pure of form and, when used in an interior, suggests the historical, handcrafted, quality of its origins. It brings pattern and repetition to a space. I just love the architectural quality it has. It definitely makes a statement about the homeowner’s sense of style.
Check out these images I’ve collected below of these chairs being used in all types of spaces.
