Tall Wing Chair

Tall Wing Chair

Elegant with a bold pop of color, this high-back armchair follows the form of the timeless wing chair. Covered in polyester, it has a tight back design that gives it a clean silhouette. Silver nailhead studs provide accent and contrast to the outline of the wings and arms.

Designer Advice:

Available in six colors, this armchair will find its home in transitional-style interiors. For a more classic ensemble, we recommend pairing it with a round side table in a dark brown finish, similar to the chair’s legs. If you’re aiming for a contemporary nook, this piece will also go well with a glass end table. Add a modern floor lamp and a patterned rug to complete the composition.

Designer Advice:

Great for achieving a casual lounge. The gray and dark brown options are ideal for shabby chic and farmhouse interiors. Meanwhile, the brown version will suit tropical interiors. But no matter which finishes you choose, we recommend pairing these chairs with a linen-upholstered sofa that also has a relaxing appeal. Round up the space with a wicker rug.
