Sit and Spin

Sit and Spin: Our 7 favorite swivel chairs! // www.alwayssummerblog.com

We love a great swivel chair around here! Adding a swivel to a chair just makes it more fun. Plain and simple! It also makes it more functional in many circumstances! Nurseries, chat groups, keeping rooms, near fire places… The list goes on and on!

Many of the swivel chairs we have access to can also rock, and some even have returns on them, meaning if you spin it, it goes right back to the correct facing position after you get up! Here are a few of our favorite swivel chairs, ranging from more modern to more traditional! Swivel chairs can fit into almost anyone’s aesthetic!

Seven Ways To Sit Small

Small stools and ottomans have proven time and time again to be the perfect addition to almost any space: at the foot of a bed, flanking a fireplace, tucked under a library table or console… Who doesn’t love non-obtrusive and stylish all rolled into one?! Beautiful small seating not only looks great, but is functional! A couple of extra places to sit can be useful when you have a bunch of people over, or even if you just need a place to sit and slip on your shoes.

We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite small seating options for you and put them all in one place!

We love a great wing chair. They work well as pairs flanking fireplaces or library tables, or as a foursomes in a chat group. They’re even great as individuals in the corner of a room with a little side table or a floor lamp!

We also love the wide variety of styles in which wing chairs come! Here are just a few that we have used in projects, had on our showroom floor, or have been eyeing for a while now just waiting on that perfect project to come along! 😉

We’ve been talking a lot lately about how much we adore Suzanne Kasler. The showroom has a lot of Suzanne-inspired vignettes and, of course, lots of her books!! We are SO excited to have her here tomorrow night!!!

The conversation turned to her line for Hickory Chair, which got us to talking about our favorite pieces from that collection!

Want to know what some of those pieces are?!

Elish says her favorite piece is the Dalton Library Table.
“It just has such presence. I adore it.”

“It’s the perfect little slipper chair. It can fit in almost any space due to its petite size, and it’s super comfy for an armless chair. It’s to die for in leather!!”
