Wingback Chair

Introduced in 17th Century England, the high back and curved sides of wingback chairs were designed to protect the occupant from drafts while curled up fireside. Today, wingback chairs are incredibly versatile. No longer relegated to hearthside use, they fit needs throughout the home – captain's chairs in the dining room or a cozy reading nook in the bedroom. Here, a comfortable gray sectional pairs with an updated wingback chair for a cozy gathering space.

Windsor Chair

Though first used in the Windsor Castle gardens in 18th century England, it didn't take long for these light and portable chairs to find themselves in even the quaintest of homes. The design became so widespread that it crossed the Atlantic and became a mainstay in the American colonies, starting in Philadelphia in the late 1700s. The Windsor chair has remained a staple in country and cottage styles, reflecting its origins, but now is easily mixed into other design styles thanks to its simple lines and elegant silhouette.

Chesterfield Sofa

Often credited to Lord Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, and definitely the namesake, the Chesterfield sofa is a timeless addition to any living space. Technically, any sofa with an equal back and arms can be called a Chesterfield, but most often the name evokes the distinctive button-tufted upholstery, rolled arms and low seat base. The stately contours combined with the low profile creates a refined yet relaxed look, the perfect mix of formal and casual. Although traditionally in leather, Chesterfield sofas are now upholstered in a variety of fabrics, from velvet to linen.

The Tulip Table

Eero Saarinen's goal of eliminating the "slum of legs" found under four-legged chairs and tables resulted in The Pedestal Collection. Also known as the Tulip Collection because of its likeness to the flower, the pieces are a hallmark of midcentury modern design. The Tulip table though seems to hold a favorite position because of its ability to blend with any design style, in any room. The iconic sculptural curves fit a wide range of table sizes, from coffee and side tables to nightstands and dining tables, both indoors and out.
