Slipper chairs were once used by Victorian ladies while “slipping” on their shoes. Today, these versatile little chairs can be found by fireside, next to a cocktail table, tucked into boudoirs or dressing rooms.
This afternoon, we peaked into the Third Avenue “Society Boutique” to see what styles remained. We found a satin tufted chair with jeweled insets designed by Guy Clark for $1300 from a suggested retail price of $2600, a pair of tweed chairs with a tufted back by Stephen Sills Associates is $1625 for the pair from $3600and an armed chair with a wood frame, designed by Thom Filicia for Sedgwick & Brattle is $1300 from $2600.
We suggest that you stop by this sale soon. The slipper chairs are scheduled skip town on Thursday but we have a hunch that the seats will be there until they are all sold. That means there may be price “flexibility” once the sale formally ends. You can click on the jump to see more of what’s available from the slipper chair sale.
