Unrivaled in movement, function, and flexibility, swivel chairs have been an industry standard for many years. Now, designer-favorite swivels are available in an array of irresistible styles from Gabby custom tailored upholstery. Why have these seats become so popular? Swivels enhance the modern home with adaptability and seamless motion, while simultaneously solving a plethora of design challenges. Small space? Consider a swivel. Open floor plan? Consider a swivel. Multiple focal points? You guessed it—consider a swivel! Today, we will explore a dozen of our best-selling swivel chairs to enhance, not dictate, your home’s layout and design.
Perfect Placement: Our Top 5 Interior Spaces for Swivels
The truth is, there’s no right answer when it comes to swivel chair placement; simply look for a piece that fits your scale and style. Then, get creative—unexpected areas can often benefit the most from flexible seating. Here are five of our favorite spaces for incorporating Gabby swivel chairs into the action:
1) Sunroom: Soak in the landscape from the comfort of a casual seat, like our Bridgette Swivel. With a relaxed flange welt and extra cushions for added support, this piece is ideal for hours of outdoor tranquility.
2) Home Office: When your laptop, cell phone, file folders, and coffee cup are spread across the desk, a full range of motion is required. Work smarter with a business-ready seat, like the tailored Liam Swivel.
3) Nursery: A parent’s hands are always full. With a great swivel chair, mom & dad can easily reach for the bottle, wipes, or bedtime story while remaining seated. For enveloping support, we suggest the Westley Swivel.
4) Master Suite: At the foot of the bed, beside a deep soaking tub…swivel chairs belong in the master bedroom. Have a dreamy walk-in closet? Add the fashion-forward Monroe Swivel inside a spacious wardrobe for luxurious boudoir seating.
5) Living Room: Equally suited for a sprawling floor plan or a quaint pied-à-terre, the Willow Swivel is a fantastic all-purpose option. Whether the room’s focal point is the television, artwork, or a picturesque outdoor view, guests can easily glide toward the visual focus.
Professional Instincts: An Interior Designer Weighs In
Why do design professionals often opt for swivel chairs? We went straight to the source, interviewing interior designer Cherith Craft of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Craft believes swivel chairs work hard to “bring spaces together” in the modern home. She explains, “Most of our homes have an open ﬂoor plan from the kitchen to the living room. I love to use Gabby swivel chairs between those two spaces so that the chairs can be utilized from both rooms.”
In her own home, Craft selected two Reagan Swivel Chairs for the perfect profile and “flawless” movement. “We love the height of it,” she shares, yet “style and fabric options” are still her main criteria when selecting seating for a client’s home. Fortunately, Gabby custom tailored upholstery is an excellent source of bespoke elements; hundreds of distinct frame, upholstery, and trim combinations can be created. Now, let’s explore some of our best-selling swivel styles.
