Billy Baldwin Slipper Chairs

Sunday, January 29, 2012

A few weeks ago I had the great fortune of coming across a pair of Billy Baldwin style slipper chairs!  These are good quality chairs made by Sherrill, and are probably from the 1980's. 


I've always loved this style chair for its good looks, classic lines and go-anywhere flexibility.  I immediately knew these chairs would be perfect for the family room over at Project Dollhouse.  The family room is a long, narrow space and I plan to divide into two seating areas; one area for watching tv and one area for reading. These chairs will be perfect because they don't take up much room and their low profiles will help me keep an open feel to this divided space.

And now, a little slipper chair/Billy Baldwin inspiration...

Do you like the contrasting seat cushion?  Not a fan myself...

And I'd love them in white, but I have three dogs and I'm a Capricorn.



And here's the best part - I worked out a trade of goods for services and all I have to do is provide my own materials and they'll be reupholstered in the fabric of my choice!

Yay! and oh no!  Let the obsessing begin...

Oh, how wonderful! Yes, now the agony/joy of picking the perfect fabric. I love slipper chairs and have a pair of chocolate velvet ones in my open concept living/family room because of just the reasons you mentioned. They don't take up a lot of visual space and are so versatile. Love your examples!

FAAAAAANtastic! Love the images you provided, because they show that this style chair is versatile. Any way you are currently leaning for fabric?

I had slipper chairs on each side of a chest in my living room. I hate I got rid of them. Gorgeous images.
Have a nice day, Kim.
