Windsor chairs developed in England some time during the late 17th or early 18th century. Today they are still one of the most popular dining chairs around.  Not only do they look sophisticated, but they also can be painted to customize the interior color scheme.  By the 1720s, they had become quite popular in Southern England, and many people guess they originated in English town called Windsor.

A Windsor chair is a wood chair whose back and sides consist of turned spindles that are attached to a solid, sculpted seat. A Windsor's chair has straight legs that splay outward and its back often reclines slightly.

The seat of a Windsor chair is an essential part of the design as it provides stability to both the upper and lower portions. It is interesting to know that the English Windsor chair seats are usually not as thick (or deep dished) as American Windsors. The reason for that is the English Windsor chairs because elm wood which the English use is more difficult to sculpt than the softer woods chosen by American chair makers.
