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.
Bedroom’s are often our place to retreat at the end of the day, and an accent chair or two in the room provide a quiet, private place to decompress. The problem of an awkward and empty corner can many times be solved by adding an accent chair, table and lamp, or floor lamp, to create some cozy. If there’s room, a chair in the entry adds a welcoming touch, as well as providing a space for guests to take their shoes off and on. Use a fun little chair instead of a piano bench to add some style and personality to your music room or piano space. Use one in place of a desk chair, as a spot for clients to sit when conducting business, or for family to sit and chat in your home office.
Rather than perceive them as just a couple more extra seating, these single chairs must be appreciated as additional home decor pieces that enhance any furniture they are placed around, and any space (or zone) they are set in. So, what ways can you use accent chairs and how do you know the best style chair to choose? And how do you use them to complement a space? For instance, should they be placed directly in front of your sofa or to its left or right side or should you use a bench-style accent chair against the long hallway wall? Additionally, how do you know when it’s best to use just one accent chair, or if it is better to use them as a pair?
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.
