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.
The best thing about accent chairs is that they are so easy to stand alone, especially with stripes or patterns gone mad. Don’t worry about mismatching — just place it in the spotlight as the signature piece and flaunt your style. For a large room, place a wide lounge chair in a bare corner that needs attention. Create stylish, yet comfortable dining room décor by placing spacious barrel seats at the heads of the table. These hand-woven abaca armchairs pair beautifully with natural finishes like oak, and create a relaxed vibe that will make guests want to linger for longer.
Think about how you’ll use your accent chair — and who will be using it. Are you looking for something comfortable in which to relax and read your Kindle, or do you prefer a unique statement piece? Accent chairs in recreation and living areas are likely to be used frequently, so durable, yet comfortable and stylish leather chairs could be a perfect fit. Chairs situated in hallways or bedrooms can be chosen more for their style, so a hand-crafted wood or antique chair might be a good choice. To use your accent chairs as extra seating in the dining room, select firm, sturdy chairs that are the correct height (usually with a seat 16 to 18 inches high).
How you decorate with accent chairs depends on a combination of the overall look you wish to achieve and where you intend to place them. Also, depending on the general style of your interior space - is it modern, traditional, classic, or eclectic, it is good to ensure you choose one that's the right scale in comparison to other furniture items it will be placed around. The size/area of the zone within which it will be placed must also be considered.
