Chairs On Wheels For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are several options of chairs on wheels available for sale. Frequently made of metal, wood and fabric, all chairs on wheels available were constructed with great care. Chairs on wheels have been produced for many years, with earlier versions available from the 19th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 21st Century. Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco and Modern chairs on wheels are consistently popular styles. Many chairs on wheels are appealing in their simplicity, but Charles and Ray Eames, Herman Miller and Marcel Breuer produced popular chairs on wheels that are worth a look.

How Much are Chairs On Wheels?

Finding the Right Seating for You

With entire areas of our homes reserved for “sitting rooms,” the value of quality antique and vintage seating cannot be overstated.

Fortunately, the design of side chairs, armchairs and other lounge furniture — since what were, quite literally, the early perches of our ancestors — has evolved considerably.

Among the earliest standard seating furniture were stools. Egyptian stools, for example, designed for one person with no seat back, were x-shaped and typically folded to be tucked away. These rudimentary chairs informed the design of Greek and Roman stools, all of which were a long way from Sori Yanagi's Butterfly stool or Alvar Aalto's Stool 60. In the 18th century and earlier, seats with backs and armrests were largely reserved for high nobility.

The seating of today is more inclusive but the style and placement of chairs can still make a statement. Antique desk chairs and armchairs designed in the style of Louis XV, which eventually included painted furniture and were often made of rare woods, feature prominently curved legs as well as Chinese themes and varied ornaments. Much like the thrones of fairy tales and the regency, elegant lounges crafted in the Louis XV style convey wealth and prestige. In the kitchen, the dining chair placed at the head of the table is typically reserved for the head of the household or a revered guest.

Of course, with luxurious vintage or antique furnishings, every chair can seem like the best seat in the house. Whether your preference is stretching out on a plush sofa, such as the Serpentine, designed by Vladimir Kagan, or cozying up in a vintage wingback chair, there is likely to be a comfy classic or contemporary gem for you on 1stDibs.

With respect to the latest obsessions in design, cane seating has been cropping up everywhere, from sleek armchairs to lounge chairs, while bouclé fabric, a staple of modern furniture design, can be seen in mid-century modern, Scandinavian modern and Hollywood Regency furniture styles.

Admirers of the sophisticated craftsmanship and dark woods frequently associated with mid-century modern seating can find timeless furnishings in our expansive collection of lounge chairs, dining chairs and other items — whether they’re vintage editions or alluring official reproductions of iconic designs from the likes of Hans Wegner or from Charles and Ray Eames. Shop our inventory of Egg chairs, designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen, the Florence Knoll lounge chair and more.

No matter your style, the collection of unique chairs, sofas and other seating on 1stDibs is surely worthy of a standing ovation.

Questions About Chairs On Wheels
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A casino wheel is a round spinning object used for various games of chance. They get their name from the fact that you usually find them in casinos. The most common type of casino wheel is the roulette wheel. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of casino wheels.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Ship’s wheels are usually made from wood, and often feature eight or six spokes with curved handles to allow for comfortable adjustment of the wheel. The center hub of the wheel may feature a metal, usually brass, plate for enhanced durability. Take a look on 1stDibs for an array of antique ship’s wheels.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    A table with wheels is often called a tea trolley, tea cart or bar cart. Bar carts as we know them were originally tea trolleys, a modest-sized table on wheels, sometimes featuring both an upper and lower shelf to help facilitate tea service during the Victorian era in England. Shop a collection of antique, vintage, and contemporary carts and bar carts from some of the world’s top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, you can generally put wheels on a bookcase. However, the wheels that you choose must be strong enough to support both the weight of the bookcase and the total weight of all the books you intend to store on it. As a result, industrial-strength metal casters are usually the best option for the job. You'll find a large collection of bookcases on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A high-wheel bicycle is called a pennyfarthing, but can also be called a high wheel, high wheeler or ordinary bicycle. The pennyfarthing was actually the first design to be called a “bicycle”. On 1stDibs, you’ll find a collection of pennyfarthing-inspired art, from paintings and sculptures to jewelry from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Traditional spinning wheels are often referred to as Saxony Spinning Wheels, but there are some other models that have developed and are used today. These other spinning wheel configurations are the Great Wheel, Castle Wheel, Norwegian Wheel, Modern Wheel and Charkha Wheel. Shop a collection of antique and modern spinning wheels from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 19, 2021
    The price of an old spinning wheel depends on the condition the wheel is in today. A fully cleaned, polished, and restored spinning wheel can fetch $300 and more. Old spinning wheels made by famous furniture designers or craftspeople as well as those used by famous people can cost a lot more. Find many varieties of authentic antique spinning wheels at 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    The difference between a lounge chair and a chair is specificity. A chair is the general term for furniture typically designed to seat one person at a time, and there are many different kinds of chairs, including dining, accent and office chairs. Lounge chairs are another example of a specific type of chair. They are chairs with a footrest that allows you to elevate your feet while sitting. On 1stDibs, explore a large collection of chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    To tell if a chair is an Eames chair, take a look under the seat or cushion. Authentic Eames lounge chairs are manufactured by Herman Miller and Vitra. If your Eames chair is a Herman Miller original, look for the legendary manufacturer’s specific logomarks on the product (these logomarks can be found on the company’s official website). There is also the manufacturing label, which is usually found under the seat or cushion (unless a former owner removed it). All of the classic Herman Miller designs are paired with a certificate of authenticity. Some designs may also have a medallion attached to certify their authenticity. You can then check trusted online resources to determine if the information on the label is correct for the style of chair (and more info on its construction is available on the official Eames website). You won’t see screws outside of the wood shells on an authentic Eames lounge chair, and prior to the 1970s, original vintage Eames lounge chairs were made with no more than five layers of plywood (during the 1970s, the chairs were made with seven layers). Find a variety of authentic Eames chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    There is no difference between a club chair and an armchair; a club chair is a type of armchair. An armchair is any chair with arms, while a club chair is a wide, comfortable type of armchair that is typically clad in leather and features thick upholstery. All club chairs are armchairs, but not all armchairs are club chairs. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of club chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 2, 2021
    The difference between a task chair and an executive chair is that most task chairs will have adjustable seat height as well as swivel and tilt functions. Task chairs are lightweight and mobile but are not intended for long periods of continuous use. Executive chairs are meant to be more comfortable and are usually designed with high backrests. An executive chair is intended for long periods of use compared to a task chair, which in some cases may be armless and isn’t going to provide the premium comfort that can be expected from an executive chair. Task chairs are also typically less expensive than executive chairs. Find a variety of antique, modern and contemporary task chairs and executive chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    The difference between a lounge chair and an accent chair pertains to purpose. Typically, a lounge chair is wider and deeper than an accent chair and tends to have a thicker cushion. These stylistic differences owe to the fact that lounge chairs are meant to provide luxurious, comfortable seating for long periods of time, while accent chairs are more often intended to add visual appeal to a living room. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of living room chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    The difference between an occasional chair and an accent chair comes down to usage. An occasional chair is a decorative chair that is placed in a room for its look rather than to function as an everyday seating solution. As a result, occasional chairs may be used infrequently. An accent chair is any decorative chair placed in a seating area. They can be used only occasionally or on a daily basis. Explore a wide variety of chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 6, 2023
    The difference between an accent chair and a dining chair comes down to function and design. An accent chair usually goes in a seating area, and makers craft them with comfort in mind. As a result, most accent chairs feature cushioning and upholstery and are characterized by generous proportions. The purpose of a dining chair is to provide a place to sit while enjoying a meal. Usually, dining chairs are lighter and smaller than accent chairs for easy maneuvering. While they may have padded seats and backrests, dining chairs generally aren't as abundantly cushioned as accent chairs. Explore a large selection of chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    A club chair is called a club chair because the accent chairs became popular in the interior décor of gentleman's clubs in France. The original name for the club chair is “fauteuil confortable," which translates to "comfortable chair." You'll find a collection of club chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 28, 2021
    The difference between an Adirondack chair and a Muskoka chair can be easily explained in that garden armchairs are called Adirondack in the USA and Muskoka in Canada. While they both have short legs, bent reclining seats, wide armrests and high backs, the Adirondack chair is 2 inches higher from the floor and 2 inches wider. The Adirondack chair uses a flat yoke at the back while Muskoka might use curved yokes. Shop for an Adirondack chair or Muskoka chair on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    The difference between a side chair and a Parsons chair is style. A side chair is a very commonly used dining chair. The form of a side chair may vary, but the constant is the lack of armrests to keep hands free for eating and to save space at the table. A Parsons chair is a type of side chair that features upholstery on the seat and back. Shop a selection of dining chairs on 1stDibs.
