A Windsor chair furniture is a classic, sophisticated and durable. Windsor chairs generally feature a rounded wooden back featuring several vertical thin wooden spindles. Windsor chairs are often found in country and cottage home decor. The Windsor chair furniture was first designed and made in Southeastern England in the late 1600s. The design remains popular and can refer to most chairs that have a wooden seat, and a backrest consisting of several wooden posts or spindles that are usually framed by a curved or straight piece of wood. The Windsor chair tends to have an H type frame below the seat which supports the slightly angled legs. In other words, wooden bars connect the legs on the left and right sides of the chair, and each side joins to a wooden bar centered almost exactly between them, creating a wooden H.
This additional support usually occurs an inch or two from the legs’ lowest points. The early chairs featured armrests, but not all styles of the chairs today have arms. Windsor chairs come in many shapes, colors and sizes. They are used as dining chairs, side chairs, writing chairs and high chairs. These versatile furniture have not gone out of style and have been in production for over 300 years.
