Born Furniture Wingback Interior

Where do Wingbacks come from?

The History of the Wingback chair

Timeless and modern, dramatic and refined yet elegant and majestic – the wingback chair has stood strong on its cabriole legs for hundreds of years.


But where did this design originate that we have come to love? Who was so creative to design this delicate yet regal piece? With a history as rich as it is captivating, the wingback chair has endured changes in material and styles over many years.


The history of the wingback chair starts in the 1600’s in England. Here the cold weather made the fireplace the gathering spot of the house, where families spend hours together. The Wingback chair came to live when the people designed a chair that could hold heat with the wings attached to a basic chair. Notably, the original purpose of this impressive furnishing was to keep the person seated, warm.


The Wingback chair gained popularity in 1720, the design was initially constructed from wood with flat, broad arms.

Came the 18th-century, the wingback turned to comfort and began incorporating upholstery. At first only fabric was used, but leather soon gained popularity as well. Towards the 19th-century, the chairs were stuffed with horsehair for more padding. Bright patterns and ornate fabric embellishment was the way to go when upholstering a chair.

The Wingback chair’s style has changed over the years. Firstly, the French designed a bergère, an armchair with upholstered arms, back and frame. Designed for lounging in comfort with a deeper, wider seat, the bergère was more about function than form.

However, the French weren’t the only ones reinventing the wingback. During the 18th-century the well-known furniture maker George Hepplewhite lowered the seat in some of his designs. Furthermore, Chippendale of England, modeled the wingback design by adding elegant frames and the finest fabrics for upholstery. Wingback chairs were seen in castles and became pieces associated with the upper class and the elite.

Over the years the Wingback chair has made its way to our homes. Designed in all sizes, fabrics, patterns and styles to perfectly fit into our homes. The wingback chair remains a symbol of comfort and elegance in modern décor. The now more informal piece is perfect for home decor in your living room, office and libraries.

Decorating with Greenery

Home decorating with the Pantone of the year: Greenery

The Pantone colour of the year is a significant element for any interior designer. As it happens Pantone has announced the 2017 colour of the year, this year we move away from the warming pastels to a zesty neon colour. Greenery is the colour of the year and we can’t express our excitement!

The colour is described by Pantone as a “fresh, yellowish hue that symbolises the reawakening of nature in spring and is a symbol for a new beginning.” However, there is a much deeper meaning to Greenery. It is a symbol of the rapidly increasing desire for a new hope in a complex social and political environment. Furthermore, it symbolises our growing desire for a renewed connection and unity with nature and our fellow human beings.
Using this zesty colour can be daunting however we are here to help you blend it into your home’s interior. Let’s have a look at some of the ways you can blend the colour into your interior.


Incorporating Greenery can easily be done by creating an accent wall. In whatever room you decided to create the accent wall it will be eye catching. The wall can either be painted or covered with wallpapers with patterns or just the new trendy shade.

A Greenery accent wall is a trendy way to make a statement


For those people that don’t want to make serious changes, you can incorporate greenery colour textiles to your decor. The bedding, blankets, curtains, scatter cushions, throws, rugs and upholstery will make your interior stylish and bold. However, the colour is very eye catching and using too much of it not a good idea. Less is more in this case. Born Furniture Home decor interior design interior decor pantone greenery

Different greenery coloured patterns are wonderful to make a bold statement


Furniture is another wonderful idea to incorporate Greenery in your home. With furniture you have a wide range of possible pieces and styles to choose from; chairs, sofas, ottomans and even headboards can be used. Use some accessories or artwork to echo with the bold colour furniture. A wonderful piece of furniture to incorporate in your home is the London Chesterfield Sofa. Master crafted to perfection and upholstered with 100% genuine leather the London in our Born Signature Green Leather is sure to add a touch of elegance to your space and it will create a marvelous focal point in your space.

In addition to the ways you can incorporate the colour in your home, Greenery shades looks wonderful paired with neutral colours. Pairing Greenery with neutral colours will be very eye-catching. On the other hand it can also be used in unexpectedly colourful ambiences, like hot pink, navy, black, blue will create a bold statement. Therefore, Greenery can be paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels and even metallics.

Summer is here and means vacation is around the corner. Some of us are lucky enough to have a holiday home at the sea, others are dreaming about it. No matter where you live you can get the coastal ambience in your space and we are here to help.

The main goal of beach house decorating is to give your space an airy, effortless style. There are some decor elements that embrace this way of living and brings a contemporary coastal style to your home all year round. Born Furniture has put together a few ideas for your coastal-inspired decor.

Firstly, the colours you use can affect the ambience of your space. A beautiful coastal colour palette includes different shades of blue, white, green, grey and neutrals. These hues echo the colours seen in nature and will create and effortless and breathable space.

Furthermore, embrace unique paradoxes and contrasting elements. Pair different patterns, textures and colours throughout your beach-inspired home to enhance this ambience. In addition, mix and match metallic decor pieces with white colours. For example a copper colour lamp with a white countertop. When the setting sun illuminates these metallic colours, your home will be able to touch the magic in the atmosphere.

Other comfortable decor pieces is, of course, throws and pillows. These decor elements contribute to creating a relazed and comfortable sensation making your space welcoming and inviting with a comfortable style.

Another theme of a coastal home is comfort and convenience. You should invest in furniture throughout the house that is comfortable for dining and living. Born Furniture has a collection of furniture that is comfortable, durable and timeless. We suggest a Timberlandia Classic Couch in a grey colour fabric paired with hues of ocean blue scatter cushion. Also, a Zinio Contemporary Chair in a light coral blue colour to create a serene relaxation ambience in your space.
