Tom Robinson’s signature “ Slipper Chair” is
a functional artwork. Each chair is made one at a time. Sets are
The first Slipper Chair was constructed 12 years ago of plywood.
Today’'s chairs may be commissioned in any height, wood selection,
fabric for seat, and choice of one-of-a-kind mosaic design incorporating
the unique TR signature on back of the chair. A refined Japanese
peg secures the back. Every chair is signed and numbered.
The chair employs an unusual structural "X" design
under the seat making it strong enough to stand on. Placed in any
area of the home the Slipper Chair serves as both a functional
artifact and a work of art.
Construction of each Slipper Chair takes 3 months. The present
commission price is $3000. To order the Slipper Chair or for more

"I designed the first Slipper Chair twelve years ago and
have continued to refine it over the years. Each new commission
challenges my skills and expresses my ideas a little bit more.
These are exciting, absorbing projects that draw on my experiences
from previous works and challenge my creativity.
The Slipper Chair
is the only furniture piece that I have focused on for this process.
I can only make one at a time (no sets). Only one may be
purchased at a time. Ideally I see it in a large master bedroom
used to put your slippers on."
