Windsor chairs have been around for almost 300 years. Some examples of those chairs are still around today in private collections, which is a testament to the longevity and durability of the design. A windsor chair, by definition, is any chair built with a solid wooden seat into which the chair back and legs are socketed into it. This design, if built correctly, is incredibly strong yet light weight with some styles weighing less than 10 pounds. They come in many different shapes and styles, both traditional and contemporary, with a classic and timeless look.
These are three examples of windsors. From left, loopback, braced loopback and continuous arm.
