Swivel chairs can make great accent pieces in any living room. Their contemporary look can capture a person’s attention and they can help bring a room’s design together. You can group smaller swivel chairs together to create a separate space, or place one at the end of a sofa for extra seating space.
These chairs come in a variety of styles, fabrics, and sizes, but there are a few things that all swivel chairs should have in common. You’ll want to make sure that the upholstery to stain resistant and easy to clean, and able to withstand normal wear and tear. Since the main feature of these chairs is their ability to turn, you’ll want to make sure that they are well constructed. Most of these chairs will feature steel or metal alloy in the base and turning mechanism for long lasting support and durability.
Even though swivel chairs are often considered accent chairs, they still need to be comfortable. Look for added cushioning in the seat and backs of the chairs, and make sure your legs hang comfortably off of the seat. Even a great looking chair is pointless if no one wants to sit in it.
