What to expect from your swivel chair
The swivel chair is a great invention that adds an element of comfort to our homes or workplaces. Would you believe that the designer of this wonderfully functional piece of furniture was ‘Thomas Jefferson’, the third president of the USA? In fact, he is known for creating several different gadgets that now make our lives a little bit easier.
After a long day at work you want a place to rest and forget about the worries of your day, this is where the swivel chair comes into the picture. There are several types of swivel chairs, some designed for office use and others to fit your home’s unique decor. Whichever you choose, there are several factors that you must take into account when making the decision. Most of the chairs are very reasonably priced, costing between $500 and $4500; Higher-end armchairs will obviously have more comfort features, but for those on a lower budget, you can still find several cheaper models that offer a healthy dose of comfort.
When presented with so many options, it can be quite difficult to decide which one is right, so to help you make this decision, here are 3 of the newest swivel chairs in various price ranges.
1. Retro Style: The retro swivel chair is actually inspired by the designs of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when simple, bold, solid colors and unique shapes were a popular aesthetic in furniture making. This chair is priced in the mid-range of $550, which may not fit most people’s budget. This chair is a great addition for those who like all things retro, but the downside is limited adjustability. The chair rests on a single swivel post and circular bracket, you can use a foot pedal to raise or lower the seat height and that’s it.
2. Ikea Malung swivel chair. This is a very reasonably priced model, which has enabled the average person on a lower budget to have an attractive swivel chair in their homes. This chair is priced at just $169 each and can be purchased at any Ikea store in your city. Again, the downside of this model is that you can only adjust the angle of the backrest. The Malung swivel chair is covered with a faux leather cover, which provides good moisture resistance, keeping your chair cool.
3. Eames and ottoman chair. Now, this swivel chair is probably ranked in the top 10 comfortable home swivel chairs of all time. Unfortunately, it is not affordable for most people, since it is priced between $3,000 and $5,000. For this amount of money you get a chair made with a walnut finish and upholstered in premium leather. The chair offers a number of adjustments for your overall comfort; it actually resembles a first class seat on an airplane. You can adjust the position of the headrest, the angle and height of the backrest, the height of the armrests and raise or lower the entire chair. This model also comes with a matching footstool, in case you want to get some sleep.
