Windsor chairs were originally developed in the late 17th Century close to High Wycombe in the English county of Buckinghamshire – close to the Royal town of Windsor, hence the name of the chair. Windsor chairs are identifiable by their large shaped seats into which the spindles, arms and legs are socketed.
They generally consist of a mix of woods, normally elm for the seats, ash or yew for the bow, and beech for the legs and spindles with British examples, whilst maple, ash, oak and hickory were commonly used for American pieces.
There are a number of different distinctive forms, including the sack back, hoop back, comb-back in both arm chairs and side chairs. Windsor rocking chairs have also been produced. The earlier chairs are more sought after and hence expensive. Chairs made with yew and mahogany are particularly desirable, as are ‘Gothic’ style Windsor chairs from the late 18th Century.
They are a design classic, great for that cosy farmhouse look. They are a highly practical chair, comfortable and ready to withstand the rigours of daily use.
