Swivels Are Back and Perfect for Your Winter Space! December 13 2015

This time of year is a nice time to visit with friends, cozy up by the fire, and watch Miracle on 34th street. It's also nice to have a seating arrangement that let's you enjoy them all with just a turn of your chair! Great Rooms are still a popular design decision when creating or building a new space. Rooms where we spend time with family and also entertain. But often there's a dilemma on how to visit with your guests but then watch tv or enjoy the fireplace. Swivel chairs are a terrific solution for this, especially since these days they are so nice looking. 

One of our most popular chairs is the Havana. This swivel, glider, recliner has it all! Use one near the fireplace for a peaceful cup of cocoa or afternoon nap. Swivel it toward the sectional for some pleasant conversation.

Using two swivels is twice the fun! Our small scale Simmons Chair fits perfectly in both limited spaces and larger rooms. 

The Simmons, shown here in the perfect navy, is comfortable yet compact, and you can choose from a wide variety of fabrics to suit your decor. In our clients' home below it was placed by the sliding glass door as a quite reading space but can swivel to take in the lovely back yard.

Here are 3 more ideas with images from our Pinterest boards on how to use and place these versatile chairs. 

1. In front of the fireplace: a great way to enjoy your guests in conversation but also swivel to enjoy a cozy evening by the fire.

2. In front of a window or slider: Turn to take in the outdoors, watch TV or chat!

3. In the middle of a room: When your TV is over the fireplace the swivel chair can turn to an additional conversation area or maybe your kitchen island.
