Why Is It Called A Slipper Chair?
The original purpose of the slipper chair dates back to 18th century Europe. The ladies, donned in large voluminous skirts, could easily slide onto this low and armless chair, allowing the maids to slip their shoes ("slippers") on for them. With all the layers that the ladies wore, it was quite a task to merely put on one's shoes.

All it took was one designer to bring the chair out of the boudoir and incorporate it into the rest of the home. Though it originated as a useful piece of furniture, it has become quite the aesthetic piece in the contemporary home.
Are Slipper Chairs Comfortable?
Like any other piece of furniture, slipper chairs vary in their level of comfort — some could be sat in all day with no issues while others are downright uncomfortable. That being the case, you'll have to shop around to find the one that fits what you're looking for.
The good news is that there are many options when it comes to the comfort level of any given slipper chair — the size of the seat cushion, the fabric from which it's made, and how low it sits to the ground.
