We’ve all been there — endlessly scrolling the internet waiting for the perfect piece of furniture to jump out at you.
Shopping online can be time consuming, tedious, and just outright scary! Not to mention you have to sort through the millions of options available! It’s no wonder why it can be so overwhelming. Where do you even start?
I’ve been sourcing so many pieces of furniture for design projects lately, and thought I would put my research to use and share some of my favorite items I’ve found along the way, hoping to save you a little time and research of your own!
I’m excited to introduce a new, ongoing series called Seven Savvy Favorites, and I’m starting it off with my top picks for living room swivel chairs!
I feel like swivel chairs aren’t used too often, and I think it’s a total bummer! You know the feeling when you’re at a hotel, restaurant, bar, or a friend’s house and discover your chair swivels?! Is it me, or does this make your experience that much more fun?! Maybe it’s my inner child typing… but I don’t think I’m alone on this one.
Other than them being fun to sit in, the real question is, why choose a swivel chair over a normal accent chair?
It’s a personal preference really….but for large, open floor plans, swivel chairs can be more functional than a standard accent chair.
Swivel chairs allow you to see all parts of the room without the annoyance of having to turn completely around. Ahhh, the little things… am I right? But in all seriousness, if you’re going to take time and money to redesign your living room, why wouldn’t you want it the most comfortable and functional it can be for you and your guests.
In my previous post, “Contemporary Living Room eDesign – Get The Look,” I used four swivel chairs around a coffee table creating a new entertaining area in the living room. It worked perfectly in that space because there were multiple focal points in the room, including a baby grand piano and tons of windows. Opting for swivel chairs in that space allowed for people to see everything while maintaining their comfort.
SAVVY TIP: When planning and measuring your space for a swivel chair, calculate the diameter of the chair and make sure you have enough space for it to swivel 360 degrees.
