The other day as I was picking up and turning an armchair in my living room so that it once again faced the sofa rather than the TV (a certain game, I’m not sure which, apparently had to be watched two inches from the screen), it came to me: swivel chairs. I need them. Badly. When you have a seating arrangement like I do—in which two chairs face a sofa, with a credenza holding the TV standing behind those chairs—you often find yourself lifting and turning. But what if you could just rotate those chairs with a simple push… nay, brush! of the hand? Oh, what a joy that would be! The two beauties shown above: on the left, the brand new Jensen Bergère (at Orange Skin) and the right, the Cara Swivel (at Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams) would do me just fine.
