Finding the Right swivel-chairs for You

There are few pieces of furniture as functional and enjoyable as an antique or vintage swivel chair.

Ideal for home offices and cozy living rooms alike, these lovable chairs came to life thanks to none other than Thomas Jefferson. Indeed, the third president of the United States would’ve made a great interior designer, and the swivel chair that he designed, a Windsor chair that moved on window-sash parts reconfigured as rollers, supported him while he prepared the Declaration of Independence.

When choosing the right swivel chair for your space, consider functionality: If you’re going for comfort and seeking out the best swivel chairs for your living room, opt for a plush, enveloping Milo Baughman swivel chair or the equally welcoming seats designed by Vladimir Kagan or Edward Wormley. Alternatively, if your work-from-home space is limited and thoughts of the long day ahead are driving your purchase, a minimalist Industrial-style swivel chair or a brushed aluminum model from the likes of Emeco — home of the iconic Navy chair — may be your best bet.

From sculptural mid-century modern swivel chairs that will lend a bit of “pop” to your living space to practical contemporary seating, find a collection of antique, new and vintage swivel chairs on 1stDibs today.
