Let’s Talk Office Chairs! As I’ve been browsing the web looking for inspiration, I have to say that I have fallen in love with using an arm chair or wing backed chair as an office chair. It just looks so posh! The office below give me so much life! Who wouldn’t want to work in that space?
But, is it functional? I’m definitely getting an L-shaped desk, so I’ll have my computer set up on one of the surfaces and the other surface will be for writing, and any other non-computer related activities. Since I’ll be moving from one surface to another, a swivel chair seems much more practical. Unfortunately, finding a cute swivel chair in my price range is pretty difficult. Plush swivel chairs that look more like accent chairs with a swivel base range from $300 – $3,000. REALLY?!! I mean I know ergonomics is important considering how much time we spend in our office chairs, but $3,000? GOOD GRIEF! I’d like to find a good non-black office chair, with arms for somewhere between $100 – $200. Is that too much to ask? And, if I’m gonna pay more than that, I may as well go the accent chair route because at least the chair can be used in other parts of the house later. And I know what some of you are thinking – DIY. Any chair can become a swivel chair…and any swivel chair can be reupholstered as an accent chair. But, you guys, when it comes to DIYs I just have to be honest with myself, and consider whether or not I am REALLY going to do it. It’s not that I can’t, but if I’m being honest, I probably won’t. I’m not ruling it out…I’m just being honest with myself about the likelihood of it actually happening.
Here are a few swivel chairs I’m considering…I don’t LOVE any of them, but they are practical and not black. Lol.
A bobcat print office chair could be fun, right? I’m thinking with white office furniture? It would just be one fun statement piece, and everything else would be neutral…my issue with this chair is it doesn’t have arms, and let’s face it…a cute animal print accent chair would be so much cuter! Lol.
And, here is one of the arm chairs I’m considering! I mean I really love this chair!
So, the question is, do you like the idea of using an accent/arm/wing backed chair as an office chair, or do you think a swivel chair is a must?
