Swivel armchairs come in several different styles, one for the home, which tend to be larger and one for the office. The standard office versions come with several different features, such as those mentioned already as well as two arm rests; depending on the model you may be able to lift or lower the arm rests to provide your arms with support after several hours of typing. The standard seats are covered in fabric, though you could pay more for a water resistant cover to prevent sweat from being absorbed into the cushions and creating a smell. When buying a swivel armchair, check whether it has specially designed padding, which is shaped to follow the contours of your back giving you extra support.
Adjustability Everyone is physically different, so you want your chair to allow you as many adjustments as possible, for example for your height. Some swivel armchairs come with a foot pedal near the base, this raises or lowers the height of the chair and can easily be changed to suit different peoples needs. Other chairs have a dial instead; the problem with these is that they can easily become stiff or too loose when over used.
Does it offer adjustable arm rests? A few models offer this option, but for anyone that does a lot of typing at their desks this is a good feature for you to have on your swivel armchair. It will give much needed support to your arms and lessen the strain.
