An assortment of tilt swivel chairs is available at 1stDibs. Frequently made of fabric, upholstery and metal, all tilt swivel chairs available were constructed with great care.

Tilt swivel chairs have been a part of the life’s work for many furniture makers, but those produced by Milo Baughman, Thayer Coggin and Charles and Ray Eames are consistently popular.

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.

Questions About Tilt Swivel Chairs
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 12, 2024
    A swivel chair spins on its base. While seated, a user can turn the seat to face a different direction without repositioning the base of the chair. Swivel chairs are popular office furniture because they make it possible to reach for items in a workspace without having to get up from a seated position. In seating areas, swivel chairs allow people to focus on different areas of a room, such as a television screen or other people seated close by. Some dining chairs and bar stools also swivel to make it simpler for diners to sit down at and stand up from the table. Shop a large collection of swivel chairs on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    In certain swivel chairs you can fit a rubber wedge between the base of the chair and the swiveling pole to increase the friction. By hammering the wedge you create a seal, limiting the motion of the chair.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, the Tulip chair does indeed swivel. It is a pedestal swivel chair made with an aluminum base and a fiberglass shell, which was very innovative when it was designed in the mid-1950s. You can shop a collection of Tulip chairs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, the Swan chair swivels on its metal base. The pivoting design was one of the major innovations of the chair that Arne Jacobsen designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark, and it remains a selling point of the piece to this today. On 1stDibs, find a selection of Arne Jacobsen Swan chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Like most home decor trends, swivel chairs have come in and out of popularity multiple times since their creation. However, swivel chairs are considered classic decor even when they’re not on-trend. Swivel chairs continue to be a popular choice because they spin and can suit a variety of spaces. Shop a wide variety of swivel chair styles on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    A swivel chair means a chair with a seat that can rotate 360 degrees to face in any direction. You can shop many styles of swivel chairs on 1stDibs.com.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    Yes, a swivel on a chair is a good idea in many spaces. In offices, swiveling mechanisms make it possible for you to turn and access different items in your workspace without having to get up from your seat. Swiveling dining chairs can make it easier for people to sit and stand before and after meals, and accent chairs that swivel can allow you to turn and easily engage in conversation with other people in the room. On 1stDibs, find a wide range of swivel chairs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 3, 2023
    Yes, Thomas Jefferson is believed to have created a swivel chair out of a Windsor chair that he had in his home. However, Thomas E. Warren was the inventor who developed the modern swiveling chair on wheels. Called the Centripetal Spring armchair, his design dates back to 1849. Shop a range of swivel chairs on 1stDibs.
