Further readings and sources:

  1. The loose seat is likely a later addition makes this a very comfortable sitting chair.
  2. “The English wing chair, in which we sit protected and alone and enclosed, facing the warmth of the fire, embraced by wings as if those of a soft sheltering angel … the wing chair’s heaviness and solidity stipulate a different form of life, one of security, of solidity, of immobility, of peace.”
