Head of the Class- The Wingback Chair

For a while, I've been liking the idea of using wing back chairs as dining room chairs.  Specifically, I love the idea of having them on the ends of each table.  The best part about it is you can use old chairs and get them reupholstered or slip-covered in the fabric of your choice. The only tricky part is to make sure the chair seat isn't too low so it's actually practical to use as a dining chair.  I've been scouring Craigslist to find a good pair but in the meantime, some pretty eye candy.


What do you think about using wing back chairs as dining chairs?
