Wishbone Chairs: Key Design Features

Ready to make a statement? Wishbone chairs are stunning works of art – blended with everyday utility, function and family-friendly design.

Whether you’re furnishing a new home or upgrading existing interiors, you can upgrade your space to include eye-catching furniture while still creating a welcome and useful room. Not sure where to begin? Our stylists discuss the basics of the wishbone style and how it can easily be incorporated into your home.

Choosing Wishbone Dining Chairs for Your Home

A key design feature of mid-century design, these seats are often identified by:

  • Semi-circular back and arms
  • A woven rope or corded seat
  • The identifiable Y connecting the seat and mid-back rest

First created in 1949, this timeless style has found its way into many modern and contemporary homes. The Y-shaped back is the most significant part of the chair’s shape and structure. As the materials (and colours) used to create each piece are unique, every family can find a set that matches their existing interior style.

When shopping for new furniture, you can match this modern shape with your existing aesthetic by remembering to:

Look out for specific materials: Looking for a modern style? Consider metal, aluminium or leather. Want something warmer and more rustic? Wicker, timber, and earth-toned leathers will best suit.

Consider their intended use: Need something for everyday family meals? Wood is a sturdy, long-lasting material that can stand up to bumps, spills and scratches. If you’re looking for furniture to only use for special occasions or holiday-friendly seats only during the festive season, why not bring out chairs made with finer materials?

Confirm the room shape (and existing furniture): Wishbone pieces are well suited to round dining tables thanks to their signature rounded armrests. With rectangular or square seats, please note the curved backrests can’t be pushed in under the table as you would with a round seat, so you’ll want to make sure there’s enough space in the room to move around the table.
