9 Modern Wingback Dining Chairs

I keep finding new examples of my favorite upholstered dining chairs. You know, these?

It’s like a traditional wingback chair fell in love with Arne Jacobsen and had beautiful babies. See also: Deeda. (Oh, you pretty thing.)

I’ve rounded up a few more examples of the style below. Oh man, if my kids weren’t so messy, I’d be all over these for my dining room. There’s always the hostess chair route, I suppose. Just a pair, with one at each end of the table? (You know the second you get upholstered dining chairs a kid will drop a plate of spaghetti on them. I think it’s a rule.)

But still. They’re so pretty! And the shape is nice and cozy. Which one’s your favorite?

    How many wingbacks is too many? In my 1911 home, I am a SUCKER for them now. I bought one from EBTH for $60 and it MAKES our living room (even though my husband calls it our Mr. Burns chair!).

    Thanks for this list. I’ve been thinking about updating our duncan phyfe mahogany table with a pair of hostess chairs like this. I think it’ll modernize it a little bit. I was thinking of having them upholstered in perennials outdoor fabric or finding a safer version of stain treatment to keep them beautiful. Still researching the latter!

    Children can only eat over the sink or outside. Problem solved ;)

    Number 8. You could have leather with the kids – even in that cool teal color from the library or in pink!
