    Wingback, surely? – Valorum May 26 '16 at 15:38
  • @Valorum I added it, it appears that sometimes they are called Chesterfields, Wingbacks, or both. – Jack B Nimble May 26 '16 at 16:17

    I was under the impression that a chesterfield was an armchair with arms and a back of a similar height and that the "wingback" was an addition to the Chesterfield to denote a high, semi-circular backing. – Valorum May 26 '16 at 16:56

    @Wadcheber - Because knowing about Scifi will only get you sofa. – Valorum May 27 '16 at 7:55
