Basically it’s a table must have, especially if you’re looking to fill small holes in the table decor.

An eclectic collection of windsor chairs in a coastal dining room

The Windsor Chair is a classic chair in home decor. It dates back to the early 1700’s and gets it name from the English town Windsor. The Windsor Chair is a wood chair that’s back and sides consist of multiple thin, turned spindles that attach to a solid, sculpted seat. The chair also has straight legs that splay outward and the back has a slight recline. There are 7 different types of Windsor Chairs: sack-back, loopback, comb-back, continuous arm, low back, rod back and fan back.

Windsor chairs were brought over during the American colonial days and became quite popular for their light weight design and portability. In the early years of these chairs they used multiple types of wood in order to construct them. After they were made they would often paint them to hide the fact that different woods were used. The Windsor Chair has a look and feel from another time period which makes them the perfect for traditional coastal style homes. The Windsor Chair effortlessly rounds a dining table in a nautical style dining room or completes the breakfast nook in a New England style coastal home. Its simple look makes them easy to incorporate and blend into these style.

Modern Windsor Chairs come in a range of sizes and colors which makes it easy to decorate any room with them. Take a look at what designers have done with Windsor Chairs in these spaces. Look at their classic design aesthetic and note how well they blend into the nautical and New England coastal styles.
