Club chairs typically have low backs and wide seats with comfy arm rests. They’re heavily used in nightclubs and men’s clubs, which is why they’re called “club chairs." Swivel club chairs are chairs of the same design that swivel around or side to side. Some also glide back and forth. Club chairs were traditionally covered in leather, but you can now find them in a variety of materials.
What remains the same is the thick cushions and roomy seats that make club chairs so comfortable. While shopping for this type of chair, you’ll encounter the following variations:
Loose back swivel chairs have removable cushions that rest on the back. You can take them on and off as needed, and they typically provide more cushioning than standard chair backs. Gliding swivel chairs will move back and forth in a smooth motion, which is soothing mentally and physically when you really want to relax.
Add club chairs to any room of your home that needs a touch of sophistication or luxury. They have a unique appearance that grabs the eye, and they take comfort to a new level. They’re popular in man caves and other rooms decorated by men but are now more widely used in every room of the house. You can add a softer touch by placing throw blankets and decorative pillows on the chair.
Club chairs take up a bit more room than many other armchairs. They’re designed with wide seats to accommodate users of all sizes. That’s what makes them more comfortable, but it also rules them out as options for small spaces. Measure the space you have available and compare to the chair’s dimensions to make sure you have room for this style of chair.
If you want to use the swivel motion of the chair, you will need a bit more space. Make sure there’s open space on both sides if not all the way around. That will allow you to turn around comfortably without knocking your knees into surrounding objects.
