    Default a swivel chair tucked into the leg hole

    I was reading The Land of Laughs the other day, and there was this sentence:

    There was literally nothing in the room but a large oak rolltop desk and a swivel chair tucked into the leg hole.

    Could anybody help me with the swivel chair tucked into the leg hole part please? I just don't get the image. Thanks a lot!

    The "leg hole" is the place under the desk where you would put your legs while sitting at the desk. There is a large desk chair that will "swivel" (turn on it's axis) placed partially in the leg hole of this desk. Try Google Images for "rolltop desk"

    Now I see it's the "leg hole" that I didn't understand. Thank you that really helped.
