English Country Chair

A hide rug and one-of-a-kind stool strike an unexpected note with this Toile chair.

"Somewhere along the line, wing chairs became associated with very buttoned-up style—but if you really look at them, they're kind of sexy," says Courtney Barnes, designer and author of the popular Style Court blog. "I especially love how the popular Missouri-based writer, Patricia Shackelford, aka Mrs. Blandings, styled this vignette with authentic black riding boots."
