For design conscious people a standard office chair no matter how comfortable and ergonomic it is would be perceived as a bit of an eye sore – normally it is not the most beautiful thing. Hence comes the urge to replace it with a dining chair, as it’s so much easier to find something you would love. But what if you want to combine aesthetics with comfort, especially if you work from home and have to spend hours at your desk? In this week’s blog post I decided to explore what other options we have and there are quite a few. Scandinavian brands particularly stand out.
To begin with I would like to share a couple of images from an Instagram feed of @yitai_hu that caught my eye recently. Her home office of is a perfect example of how to create minimalist and calm work environment without compromising on your personal style.
Aluminium Chair, Charles and Ray Eames, Vitra, From £1,910
A design classic by Charles and Ray Eames, but also at the top of the budget.
Other options by Vitra:
Form Swivel chair by Normann Copenhagen, From £305
Neu 10 Upholstery by Hay, from £405
I particularly like upholstery versions as I think they soften up the office look even more.
Other great options by Hay to consider:
Harbour Chair by Menu, From £450
Fiber Armchair by Muuto, from £359
A few more choices by Muuto:
The great thing about all these chairs is that they all come in a great variety of finish choices, from simple plastic bases to upholstery in fabric or leather as well as a large palette of colours to suite every interior. You can also choose the base whether you prefer just four legs, swivel base or swivel with wheels.
