1. Unless everything of interest in your kitchen or basement is on one wall, you're going to spend some time turning in your seat. Your neck deserves better. Swivel counter stools are especially neck-friendly in busy spots like game rooms and home bars, or kitchen counters with an overhang for entertaining.
2. Are you the sort of host or hostess who's often up and about, orchestrating all the elements of your latest soiree? If so, a swivel counter stool should be the next item on your wish list. You'll understand why the first time you spin around for a 360-degree view. Ah, omniscience.
3. As task seating, backless swivel counter stools are about as flexible and convenient as it gets. Stylish but unobtrusive, and easily transported from one room to another, the backless swivel counter stool is perfect for musicians and artists, friends or family hanging out in the living room or rec room, or hungry kids flocking to the kitchen island or breakfast bar.
