Slipper chairs are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture and can even be used to separate the dining and living areas in a single room. If you’re wondering where the name “slipper chair” comes from, you might be surprised to learn that the name originated from the Victoria era chair that was easy for Victorian ladies to get in and out of when slipping on their shoes.
A chair’s upholstery can add textural colour to a living room. Buttery leather upholsteries in rich brown or brick red add a warm elegance to a living room. White or shiny black leather sets a lively, modern tone. Fabric chairs upholstered in cozy chenille, corduroy or velvet add inviting texture to a space. Microfiber is an ideal upholstery choice for homes with kids and pets; it’s durable and easy to clean. Choosing a neutral upholstery — such as beige, brown, gray or off-white — allows you to punch up the colour with toss pillows and furniture throws. An upholstery fabric in a stripe, paisley, geometric print or other pattern can help to “turn up the decorating heat” in a living room.
Incorporating accent chairs into your room arrangement can provide functional and stylish decor. Centering a small table between two accent chairs in a living room nook provides a decorative conversation area. Position a sofa in front of a fireplace flanked by two accent chairs facing each other to form a decorative “square” furniture arrangement. Or center two accent chairs and a table across from a sofa in a room without a fireplace.
Velvet texture and luxurious patterns are the must-have fabrics for your glam accent chair. We love the growing trend of gold metals, like satin brass, as an extra-glamorous touch in glam decor. This style is all about being a little over-the-top in decorating, meaning accent chairs that make a bold statement. We love boho style for its vibrant colors and Bohemian patterns. Look for saturated color palettes and lush fabrics for your boho accent chair. Don’t forget to add accent pillows and a throw in similar colors — the boho style is all about comfort.
