What Houzz contributors are saying:
THE TRENDWindsor chairs proved to be popular garden seats in 18th-century England, often painted green or left to weather in the elements. By the late 1750s, the chair was as popular indoors as it was outdoors and could be seen in a number of places including taverns, inns, libraries and meeting houses – to name a few.In North America, the Windsor chair became hugely popular around the time of the Revolution, particularly in Philadelphia. In fact, it became such a ubiquitous – and ultimately symbolic – part of life in America that Thomas Jefferson is said to have written the Declaration of Independence seated in one, and Martha Washington sat in one as she did her needlework.
