    A lovely petite pair of French slipper chairs. The cream painted frames are accented by the dark greenish blue inner trim. Matching carved flowers and leaf-like corners detail the top of the shaped seat backs. The worn floral upholstery is original to the pair, secured to the frame with a decorative nailhead trim. Seat height is 16-¼”. Each chair has a slightly different shaped set of turned front legs, making them quite a unique pair. Age and use has worn away some of the paint, revealing a darker coat underneath from an earlier time.

Shop Vintage & Antique Slipper Chairs

For a renaissance revival look, try one, or several balloon-back carved parlor chairs, or if you are more of an Art Nouveau decorator, why not go for something more modern in oak or cherry? The look of an antique slipper chair is unmistakable and doesn’t shrink back, whether it’s the steel-and-leather of a Barcelona chair or a wicker lounger.

The slipper chair is functional, suitable for all ages, and promises a soft landing. Fireside’s collection of finely crafted slipper chairs suits every taste and color story and, best of all, provides comfort to all who care to sit.

How to Choose an Antique Slipper Chair

Slipper chairs are the perfect accent pieces because they can fit any room and aesthetic. A slumpy comfy mid-century modern chair can be just as plush as a vintage Victorian, so don’t hesitate to mix and match.

Slipper lounge chairs offer the perfect lazy grace for a modern look, or you can embrace the 1930s with a deep-tufted slipper in velvet. Meanwhile, the carved back and finely turned legs of a Hollywood Regency evoke classic glamour and style, while an unfussy pair of leather lounges can finish the look of any den. Slipper chairs combine the best of each era’s fashions with a timeless silhouette that speaks of home.

Types of Antique Slipper Chairs

An antique slipper chair or set could be the accent pieces you are looking for, as they come in a vast array of finishes, fabrics, and flourishes. Whether sitting up straight in an 18th-century Louis XV Fauteuil style or lounging in a 1960 French modern lounger, there’s just something cozy about a slipper chair.

Let one languish in your dressing room corner or bedside for a louche look. On the other hand, you could pair an Italian upholstered lounger or German cantilever with a writing desk for that academy style.

From classic to neoclassical all the way to 1960s ultramodern, antique slipper chairs offer something for everyone. With so many options available, you can easily find your perfect match at Fireside Antiques.
