Queen Anne Chair


Queen Anne Chair

Specific design elements exist to help identify a Queen Anne wingback chair.
Queen Anne style involves characteristics from many styles often making it indistinguishable from other furniture styles. Fully upholstered with the exception of the exposed wood legs, the Queen Anne wingback has sides folded inward to keep heat contained within the chair. The legs are usually sabre in back and cabriole leg with uncarved knees in front. All four legs sit on padded feet. The shoulders of the back droop slightly to give a more feminine look to the style, in contrast to the squared shoulders of the masculine King George wingback chair.
