The slipper chair was invented by designer extraordinaire, Billy Baldwin and it has never gone out of style!  I love them in pairs…preferably with an interesting nail-head detail, how do you like yours??

As always, here are some of my favorite picks…


First and foremost, the Billy Baldwin Slipper chair available through Ventry Ltd.


I LOVE the lines of the gorgeous Duncan Lounge by Reagan Hayes $3,150


The Florence Chair from Shine Home has been a favorite of mine for a while!


Pair of Slipper Chairs Upholstered in the cult favorite Imperial Trellis from Tonic Home


I love this for a traditional space.

The one I have in my living room is upholstered in a navy fabric with gold bees embroidered on it. It’s a little grand for me right now and I considered slipcovering it in a simple white or off-white fabric.

Beautiful chairs!

Love that Nate Berkus chair in the blue. I like the openness of slipper chairs for a room that maybe an armchair might look to big for.

So many great ones. Fav is the Jayson Home, Nate Burkus (fab pricing) & Tonic Home. Thanks for all the great ideas.

Wow, you’ve found some beautiful examples 🙂 I really love the pair from Tonic Home – love that fabric.

As always, a great round up! I like too many here to list. Have a great weekend, Lauren!

Love the striped chair. It would really liven up an otherwise traditional space.

I love using slipper chairs in my designs, especially in higher traffic areas or smaller spaces. I was going to go through your list and pick just one as my favorite but I can’t, I like all of them. 😉

Personally, I love the chair legs on the Zondra, particularly the way they artistically thin out as they progress downward. Overall though, the Doyle is my favorite – I love those colors!

I love the Duncan by Reagan Hayes. I love the new twist on a traditional design. Love the nail head trim, boxed in back detail and oh . . . how I love those legs!

And this is why I love Unbeilevable post.
