"The firm has received 190 reports" of incidents, says one national agency, with government officials in the US and Canada responding.

When you shop with an upmarket furniture brand, you don’t expect that your piece will come with safety concerns. However, a brand that says it’s “delivered quality furniture to more than half a million North American homes and businesses” has announced a voluntary recall of a product that they report was sold in the US and Canada between July 2021 and June 2023.

Article is a furniture and home goods brand that’s been in operation since 2013. On May 9, 2024, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published an announcement that “about 4,500” Article brand “spin swivel chairs” had been recalled because “the swivel chair’s base can break, posing a fall hazard.” It’s also reported that approximately 140 units were sold in Canada. The product importer is noted as Trademango Solutions Inc., doing business as Article of Canada. It’s reported all products had been sold through

According to the recall announcement, the upholstered swivel chair’s specifications and dimensions are:

  • The swivel chairs measure approximately 32.5 inches tall, 32 inches deep, and 30.5 inches wide
  • They have gold-colored stainless steel swivel legs
  • They were sold in ivory, gray, orange, and blue upholstery
  • The product was priced at “about $700,” according to the CPSC

The CPSC states that the firm has received 190 reports of the base of the swivel chair breaking, though to date no injuries have been reported.

The alert recommends that consumers “should immediately stop using the recalled swivel chairs.” It’s said Article is contacting all known purchasers of the item and offering a free replacement chair base that can be self-installed with installation instructions the brand will provide.
