Five swivel chair styles for any modern home

August 14, 2015

The swivel chair: it’s easy to think they’re only meant for offices, home studies and movie villains (think of the Bond villains and – of course – Dr Evil). However, the swivel chair has rolled its way into becoming an essential fixture in any modern home. With so many different designs on the market, there’s an option for any style preferences. Here are 5 ideas to get you inspired.

1. Funky

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you: this swivel chair gives new meaning to the phrase ‘sitting in the palm of my hand.’ Any unique piece – it doesn’t have to be hand-shaped swivel chair – is the ideal conversation starter for any living space. Check out this attention-grabbing example (available in 25 colours!), or this velvet one.

2. Minimal

For those that prefer clean lines and neutral colours, there are plenty of options to choose from. A sleek swivel chair is the perfect way to add understated elegance and style. For a more ‘lounge chair’ feel, check out this beautiful couch rotator, or this swan chair.

3. Stools

A few well-placed stools are a great way to incorporate some swivel action into your home. If you have a kitchen island or bar, then swivel bar stools are a no-brainer. But trend doesn’t have to stop there: because there are so many styles and heights on the market, you can find the perfect stool for any table, tall or small. For some more ideas, check out Cult Furniture’s selection here.

4. Futuristic

A blend of minimalist lines and funky designs, the futuristic trend relies on eye-catching silhouettes with an edgy twist. These pod chairs are impossibly chic and a bold statement in any room. And if you aren’t sold on the whole egg-shaped look, check out a few alternatives here, here and here.

5. Armchair

Stay ridiculously comfortable at any angle with a swivelling armchair, like this leather one from Fishpools (pictured). Find the perfect one to suit your living room – perhaps this classic in a textured chenille fabric or this one that reclines for the ultimate relaxation.

No matter what interior design trend you prefer, rest assured there is a swivel chair out there to complement your home – and give you a dramatic way to greet your guests.
