Slipper chairs are just so versatile because of their small scale. You can tuck them into so many places in a room. It can often be a good solution for treating an awkward corner. Pairing a slipper chair with a small drink table, as in the photo above, creates a cozy reading spot.
This is a cell-phone shot of a similar chair I snapped at a recent furniture show. This chair is from Lee Industries. I wanted to illustrate how, even when there is button-tufting present, a pretty print fabric such as this blue-and-white ikat style, looks great. So pretty!
I think this little chair is just so unique and stylish. More button-tufting and legs with casters, two of my favorite style details.
How about this for something truly different and utterly feminine? I love it in a neutral linen like this and it would be fantastic in a large scale print as well.
This is a little antique slipper chair I have owned for a very long time, from back when finding something like this was rare, before French reproductions became so common. It is done in needlepoint.
This slipper chair has a very classic, sophisticated feel which I think would look great done in a living room in a pair, side-by-side.
This was another one of my vintage finds that I had covered in a cotton fabric with a small fern pattern. It sits in my grandson's nursery at my house. (By the way, those walls are chocolate brown. Not the greatest picture.)
This is a more contemporary version consisting of cleaner, straighter lines and a little larger scale. I'm more of the curvy persuasion myself, though!
If something seems missing in your life, maybe adding a delicious little slipper chair to your decor will brighten things up. You never know!
