Windsor chairs are classic, sophisticated and durable. Windsor chairs generally feature a rounded wooden back featuring several vertical thin wooden spindles. The simple wooden seats are held up by four chair legs, angled out for balance. Windsor chairs were first manufactured in England in the early 18th century and are named after the English village where they were first made. Around 1740 they were produced in America, first in Philadelphia. As their popularity grew, they could be found in all areas of the country. Windsor chairs come in many shapes, colors and sizes. They are used as dining chairs, side chairs, writing chairs and high chairs. These versatile chairs have not gone out of style and have been in production for over 300 years.
