Where to find old-fashioned wingback chairs — for under $350

Wingback chairs have been popular since the 17th century, and there’s no evidence that this statement piece will be going out of style anytime soon. Originally designed to trap heat from the fireplace and protect against drafts, stylish wingback chairs continue to grace homes of all styles due to their customizable design and cozy construction.

Modern iterations of the wingback chair include contemporary fabrics, patterns, and shapes, but you can still find the more traditional style online, at furniture galleries, and at antique stores and estate sales. Because of their popularity, these chairs can be quite expensive, so we’ve tracked down some of the best options for your living room, dining room, office, and bedroom.

Corvus Madonna Tufted Oversized Fabric Nailhead Accent Club Chair

  • Features a traditional style with nailhead trim
  • Available in light and dark neutrals
  • Has a semi-firm cushion

For a classic look, check out this Corvus Madonna tufted oversized fabric club chair. This gorgeous chair comes with chenille upholstery, espresso legs, and either light or dark grey fabric. Because of the mature, neutral design, this chair is perfect in the corner of a bedroom or home office. Sophisticated doesn’t have to mean boring, so feel free to break up the grey with boldly colored throw pillows or blankets. Or, add it to a room with a statement wall, patterned wallpaper, or other bold features to balance the busyness of the other design elements.

Talisa Winged High-Back Tufted New Velvet Club Chair

  • Available in gray or blue
  • Features a traditional, high-back design
  • Made with new velvet fabric and birch legs

If you want to throw it all the way back to its original design, this Talisa Winged high-back tufted chair is the perfect choice. From GDF Studio online, this velvet chair comes in deep grey or royal blue. Because the shape is more traditional, complete with a high back and diamond tufting, it would be right at home in its historic location — next to the fireplace. To add a contemporary flair, opt for the version in royal blue as opposed to grey.

BELLEZE Modern Accent Chair

  • Comes in a variety of color options
  • Has rubber feet protectors
  • Can work in casual, cottage, and traditional-style homes

If you’re looking to keep the traditional wingback design but update the upholstery, this chair certainly fits the bill. It comes in a number of colors like avocado, citrine yellow, mallard teal, and pink, as well as several floral options. The rubber feet protectors ensure you can move the chair around as you please without scratching the floor, and the padded seat and armrest mean you can spend hours comfortably cuddled up with a good book.

Noble House Tafton Brown Leather Tufted Club Chair

  • Embellished with nailhead buttons
  • Brown leather and espresso-stained legs offer a rich design
  • Shorter back adds a casual touch

For a luxurious look, look no further than this Noble House Tafton brown-bonded leather club chair. Embellished with nailhead buttons, this chair is perfect for a lounge or game room. The backing is a little shorter than the others on this list, so it’s a little more casual, but the espresso-stained legs and bonded leather keep it looking expensive.

Zipcode Design Donham Chair

  • Great for small spaces
  • Comes in a variety of colors, including a cowhide pattern
  • Budget-friendly

If you don’t have a lot of room but want the aesthetic benefits of a wingback, we recommend this Zipcode Design Donham chair from Wayfair. It’s only 28 inches wide, so it can fit in most nooks of a bedroom or small living room. Pair it with a small pillow or throw blanket, and it’s the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. For a more fun design, consider buying the version in cowhide brown to add a more exciting pattern to the room.

These five options will elevate the style of any room, adding the perfect balance of sophistication and visual interest. While some wingback chairs can cost upwards of $1,000, all of these come in at a much more reasonable price. With all the money you save, you could even invest in a poof or ottoman so you have a place to kick up your feet and relax.

The best part about investing in a wingback chair is it will never go out of style. They’ve been around for hundreds of years for a reason — they’re well-made, expertly designed, functional, and can be customized to complement any design, be it modern, traditional, farmhouse, or anything in between. Even better, if you get bored of the look, you can always take it to a reupholstery store for a fabric update.
