Hi, there:
A chair can turn around a central point is a swivel chair.
I am wondering if the swivel chair is also called rotating chair or revolving chair.
I am wondering what native speakers usually call the furniture.
Thanks a lot!

    I say swivel chair too. The other phrases might suggest that the chair turns on its own! However, I note that Wikipedia (Swivel chair - Wikipedia) certainly mentions rotating chair as an alternative term.

    We call it a swivel chair. People get these chairs so they can swivel, not rotate. (It's only when the kids visit the office that they do that.)
