Kingcome’s Slipper chair

Slipper chairs appeared during the early 18th century as high backed, armless chairs, where upper class Victorian women would sit while their maids assisted with putting on their shoes, or slippers as they were known, hence the name.

Kingcome’s slipper chair features an elegantly scrolled back. Usually made with a kick pleat skirt to the floor; it sits gracefully in bedrooms, dressing rooms or generous bathrooms.

The Slipper chair can also be made with a loose cover, or even with no skirt for use as a dining chair.

These charming chairs look well in an accent colour to suit the interior decor, and in fine fabrics such as linens or printed cottons which work well as a pleated skirt. The scroll back with skilfully placed fabric gathers provides an attractive point of interest, elevating the chair to a special furniture piece.

The scroll back detail of the Slipper chair is echoed by the Emma stool, which makes a perfect companion piece for a spacious bedroom.
