Swivel chairs are all the rage today, offering stylish seating that captures 360-degree views from a single, ultra-comfortable spot. But these rotating seats are nothing new. They’ve been making the rounds for decades. Consider this Good Egg Chair designed by Milo Baughman in 1967. It’s a midcentury modern classic that is as relevant and chic today as it was when it was conceived more than 50 years ago.

Is it any wonder modern swivel chairs are all the rage? Sure, they look ultra cool, but they also allow you to see whatever you like with a simple turn. Fireplace, TV, mountain views and more—all from one seat.
