You see them in magazines and stores. It’s an armless upholstered jewel that sits alone in the living room or bedroom, historically known as a slipper chair.
In the Victorian era, ladies with their laced corsets and heavy petticoats needed a comfortable place to sit while putting on their long stockings and shoes. Thus, the slipper chair was designed for ladies to have a comfortable place to sit in the bedroom while putting on her slippers.
Unlike dining chairs, slipper chairs sit lower to the ground and are designed smaller in stature than a typical upholstered arm chair. Their petite design make them a favorite for designers who use them to fill a small space.
“The slipper chair makes a great accent chair. It can look sharp and tailored, detailed and traditional, or eclectic and fun. And they often are more affordable than armchairs.” (source: houzz.com)
