Chair looks great - no swivel what so ever! As I removed it from the shipping carton, little silver ball bearings where spilling out from between the swivel base and the seat. Have no idea how that was supposed to work. I use the chair in my guest bedroom and it doesn't need to swivel and company was on the way - so no return for me! Other than that, the chair looks like the image online and is fairly comfortable, a little on the firm side.
