Oh, the Places You'll Sit: SWIVEL CHAIRS

Playing Goldilocks at market. Here with Luke at American Leather.
Fall 2014 Furniture Market marked my return to High Point after a long hiatus. This time, I was with the Parlore team, and curious chair hopper that I am, sat in every chair that piqued my fancy.  I have a thing for chairs and I call it "goldilocksing."

Channel Chair chic at every turn from Interlude Home.
While I helped myself to dining chairs, plush down sectionals, and sleek leather chesterfields, this market I was particularly obsessed with swivel chairs

Interior Designer Lisa Sherry of Lisa Sherry Interieurs has two prominent high-back vintage Halo swivel chairs in her sun-room.
Swivel chairs make sense. They provide graceful access to life happening all around us, and offer a revolving point of view. 
Plus they are lots of fun for kids.
I sat and spun a lot.
