Trending | Modern Windsor Chairs

Black Windsor chairs look particularly great paired with lighter wood tables, or with walnut.  To keep the look feeling modern, avoid cherry finishes as the combo can start to lean too traditional.

I'm currently helping my family decorate their new cottage, and it seems like everywhere I look I'm finding a modern take on the classic Windsor chair.  English settlers introduced the Windsor chair to America in 1726, and there is speculation that the chair derives its name from the town of Windsor, Berkshire--the center for the trade between the chair producers and the London dealers.  Thus the name "Windsor Chair" is more about the style of chair than where it was made, with many diverse forms of Windsor chairs being made worldwide.  Below are some of my favorite modern takes on the chair, ranging from high to low in price point and available in a rainbow of colors.
