This low, armless, upholstered accent chair is an excellent choice for a cozy room that is tight on space. If space is a scarce resource around your home, a slipper is a great option. Place it near the coffee table, pull it up to the dining table for extra seating, particularly in small rooms or use it to pretty up your bedroom as a duo at the end of the bed.
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.
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.
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.
