28 Office Chairs That Won't Make You Want to Die
I don’t know about you, but at first glance, I’m almost always swayed by form over function.
Like, when I think about needing a new office chair, I just want to make sure it looks “cute”. But then, after a few days of sitting on that “cute” chair, and my back crying out - loudly! - at me, I then realize that I really need to focus on that form. I think it was one of my most harsh realizations about working at home, and not sitting in my - typically very ugly - business provided office chair. I think I took for granted what those ugly chairs had done for me for all of those years. So, my apologies to ever chair I had at a previous desk of mine and did not shower with love, because you really helped a sister out.
So, with all of this fuss, and back pain - thus came about the search for a good office chair!
I put it out there to you guys on IG, hoping for some real-life reviews - and specifically NOT about how cute they were, as that is what I gravitate to, and tend to pick out the cuties on my own, but, to my surprise, I mainly just got people asking for me to share my finds/other peoples advice as they were also looking and in a similar predicament. As many people now work from home it’s super important to find a chair that makes you happy (or at least indifferent) to look at, while also keeping your back in good shape!
After searching the internet high and low, I realized that I had about 5,000 tabs open, and it might just be easier to compile this into a blog post for everyone to read!
So, while I have not personally sat in each of these chairs, I do think that they are cute BUT more importantly, the reviews all seem relatively good in terms of comfort, and these are chairs that are predominantly marked as ones suitable for 8 hour daily use.
Just a note - most of these come in multiple colours, I just included all of the neutrals that I was loving (obvs!) Most come in a darker option, and some even in fun colours - so keep that in mind!
I’ll let you take a look, but then, after you’re done - any guesses on which one I’ve purchased?
