How to Make a Wing Chair Work As a Dining Chair

A wing chair refers to a wingback chair, a traditional styled chair with a distinctive silhouette. Wings, rising up from the arms of the chair, join the back, creating a 90-degree or wider angle. According to the website Design Boom, designers created these chairs to protect users from drafts in old houses as well as to protect delicate skin from the heat of robust fireplaces. There's no reason that you must restrict your wingback chair to the living room. It is possible to make your wingback chair a comfortable seating option for your dining room table.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

Measuring tapeNotepad and penCushionFabric protector spray

Instructions

1 Measure the height of your dining room table. Most dining room tables are generally anywhere between 26 and 30 inches.

2 Measure the seat height of your wingback chair. Most wingback chairs tend to have a lower seat, around 16 inches from the floor. The ideal dining chair should have a seat of 18 inches from the floor.

3 Measure the dimensions of your wingback chair seat and write them down.

4 Purchase a seat cushion that is the same length and width as the seat cushion on your wing chair but which is sturdy and at least 2 inches thick. Your goal is to bring your wing chair seat to a height of around 18 inches.

5 Spray your wingback chair with a fabric protector so that it resists stains. Your wing chair is now going to be in a vulnerable position to stains, so this is rather important.

6 Place your wing chair at the head of the table. This will isolate it from the other chairs, showcase its unique shape and ensure that it doesn't cramp the other more traditional chairs.
