The swivel armchair 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 U.S.? He is actually known for creating various different devices that now make our lives a little easier.
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.
The feel, depth, width and height are key considerations that must be made when shopping for a feature armchair. The chair should be soft to the touch yet still provide the necessary support and be a suitable depth to accommodate the length of your legs. Additionally, the width of the seat and the height of the back and arms are also crucial for luxurious lounging.
