Shop for Vintage Rocking Chairs at Chairish
Although they’re often typecast as an emblem of the geriatric, knitting-needle wielding faction, a vintage rocking chair used right can actually be a glorious thing. To ensure yours hits all the right notes, look for a rocker that leads with forward-leaning sculptural-ness over backward-tipping superannuation. Seek out designs by Scandinavian masters like Hans Wegner or Georg Jensen that are artfully restrained with glides that might be better likened to the tails of renegade comets than rachitic skis. These are chairs that refused to be sequestered in a nursery or even the front porch. Give these rockers top billing status in a living room or den.
Discover Whimsical Vintage Wingback Chairs
A high back, collar-like “wings” and a tightly tailored seat give the wingback chair its signature verve. While wingbacks have traditionally fostered feelings of stuffiness, designers have recently tapped into their irreverent alter-ego by re-upholstering them in less-than-expected prints. Kilims, ikats, even suzanis all have a knack for making wingbacks look sensationally chic and terrifically cheeky. Use one in a bedroom that lacks oomph or a living room that has madcap cottage aspirations.
Explore Covetable Vintage Windsor Chairs
Make no mistake about it: the Windsor chair has got back. Hailing from Europe, this stately seat’s timeless trademark is its eye-catching slatted spindle back. Variations run rampant, with some Windsors showcasing a radiant radial top rail and others a flat top panel with curvy cut-outs. Some come outfitted with spindle arms and yet others go without. Designers are fond of using Windsors in concurrence with dark, moody walls outfitted with a smattering of antique oil paintings, but there really are few scenarios in which a vintage Windsor chair won’t pull through like a hero. Like white subway tile and oversized sisal rugs, the Windsor is as close to dummy-proof as it gets.
Browse a Wide Array of Vintage Club Chairs
Forget the momentary elan brought on by Instagram likes, all one really needs for a confidence boost is a club chair. Tall arms and a sunken seat lend an air of paramountcy to anyone who sinks into a club chair's depths. Originally named for their ubiquitous appearance in gentlemen's’ clubs, club chairs are second to none when it comes to adding presence to a room. Drop a pair in front of a fireplace to procure stately symmetry, or cozy one up to built-in bookshelves to create a nest-like nook. Club chairs outfitted in burnished leathers are a classic standby, but high-sided, snail-swirl-style swivel chairs decked out in vibrant velvets, à la Vladimir Kagan are no less inviting.
Shop for Sophisticated Slipper Chairs
Just as its ballerine name might suggest, the slipper chair is a pretty perch ideal for spiffing up any space. An armless silhouette makes the slipper chair perfect for layering in front of other furniture in rooms where space is tight. Shimmy up a pair to the foot of a bed, a credenza, or even a fireplace to procure seating while still maintaining a thorough line of sight. Whereas hefty club chairs would make a room feel cut off, slipper chairs can make it feel layered with intention.
