Create a relaxed, inspiring space for work and productivity in your home with a firm, yet comfortable office chair. Whatever your home office style, you can find a chair that both suits your needs and your office aesthetic.
A Classic Home Office
Give your workstation a traditional look with a mid-century modern office chair. Both reminiscent of the past and at home in the present, the design's sleek, angled legs never go out of style. Keep your choice neutral in color—light hues such as cream and beige—to keep the room looking smart and collected. Fabric upholstered chairs and light to medium hardwood flooring are classic pairings, and the two textures give the room an elegant balance.
Dark, natural-looking wood desks, paired with upholstered chairs, make the workspace feel academic—think walnut, pine and oak woods. Keep yourself comfortable and motivated with a tight back chair that allows you to sink in while still inspiring you to get work done. A design that offers a full 360-swivel allows for easy movement and the freedom to glance over at the clock on the wall, or turn to grab a document from the bookcase behind you. Try a wood case with glass panels and coordinate with other such characteristically simple office furniture.
A Modern Space
Create a modern workspace with minimalist office furniture in basic black and white. Those constructed with silky top-grain full-aniline leather upholstery make the room feel lively and official—and ready for work. Polyfoam cushioning and flowing, upright armrests promote both comfort and productivity. Bases with steel or aluminum casting or arms with chrome plating add a shiny urban edge. Make it your own with decorative throw pillows or cushioned pads for extra back support and a splash of color.
Pair the leather style with an iron-framed computer desk—the metal and tempered glass tabletop together produce a chic industrial look. Furniture with clean, simple lines is contemporary in its minimalism. Accent your modern home office with sleek iron and glass floating wall shelves perfect for book storage and decor display. For documents, magazines and reading materials, use a sharp wood credenza with a dark-stained veneer as your home filing cabinet.
Style-wise, your office chair should coordinate appropriately with your office desk and, work-wise, promote motivation and inspire creativity. Look for one with ease of use and movement, a timeless design and ultimate ergonomics.
