Your search for the perfect accent chair for any room ends here. Sleek, effortless, and comfortable, the slipper chair has everything you need in a piece of accent furniture. Keep reading for an introduction to the slipper chair, from what a slipper chair is to how you can use it to upgrade your home’s functional decor.
What Is a Slipper Chair?
A slipper chair is a medium to large upholstered occasional chair that lacks arms and sits low to the ground. These high-back chairs got their name during the Victorian era, when they were used to comfortably seat high-class women while they put on their shoes or slippers. Nowadays, slipper chairs aren’t used to serve such a specific function. Instead, they are used as accent furniture pieces that double as comfy additional seating.
Versatile in design, slipper chairs are the chameleons of the decor world – they can be farmhouse or industrial, modern or traditional, simple or sophisticated. While the general streamlined and armless shape is consistent across all models, ornate details (tufting, turned legs, luxe fabric) can give a slipper chair some additional flair.
Slipper Chair Decorating Ideas
Place them by windows as comfortable space fillers. Corners with windows are the perfect spaces for slipper chairs. They can transform once unused areas into attractive, relaxing sitting spots. Pair them with simple side tables to increase their functionality.
Create an eclectic dining room. Place a slipper chair at each end of a long dining table and flank the sides with simpler dining chairs. They don’t have to match – the mix-and-match look is perfect for farmhouse dining rooms.

Warm up a glam bathroom. Dominated by tile, stone, mirrors, glass, or metal, many bathrooms can feel cold. Add warmth, softness, and subtle glamour by placing a cushy slipper chair in an open corner. They also make for lovely vanity seating.
Decorate with throw pillows and blankets for a cozy reading spot in your living room. Slipper chairs are amazing seats on which to curl up and read a good book. Add coziness by adorning one with stylish throw pillows and throw blankets. Sit a slipper chair next to a vintage lamp to emphasize the classic, bookish look.

Embrace bold patterns. Because of their design simplicity, slipper chairs display bold patterns and bright colors beautifully. If your living room, dining room, or bedroom has a more neutral color palette and you’re looking for a way to step it up, consider a striking slipper chair.
Embrace their Victorian era utility. Narrow entryways and busy mudrooms may not have enough space for large accent chairs or benches. Because of their minimal profile, slipper chairs will fit right in. Use one as the Victorian ladies did – sit on a slipper chair while you put on your shoes!
