What makes a chair a Windsor chair?

A Windsor chair has a unique shape and is made from solid wood. Ash, beech, and elm were the most common choices of an artisan craftsman of a bygone age. The solid wooden seat of a Windsor armchair was often shallow carved into a saddle shape for ultimate comfort. The high back was spindle or stick back. Some of these backrest designs were simple, whereas others were highly decorative with Fleur de Lys detailing. Every Windsor chair is unique in its intricacies. Select a Windsor rocking chair, an elegant American Windsor chair or opt for a classic mid-century Ercol piece.
