The second in the Back To Work Series, this post we’re looking at the perfect chair to go with your desk. Your desk-chair is going to depend a lot of the type of desk you choose. An open desk gives you a lot more space and you might be able to get away with a bigger chair. Obviously it depends on your preference too…. if you like to be tucked right in to your desk or if you like to scoot across the room place to place on wheels. And of course another major factor style over comfort? How long do you typically spend at one time working on your projects? All important things to consider when looking for a chair to compliment you and your space. Here are my favourites!

I’m loving the angles on this desk chair from West Elm and it’s gold base.

Molte Chair

The shape of this chair with the holes reminds me a bit of E.T. A cool option from IKEA nether the less.

Low Back Desk-Chair

This chair from Deerpark looks like it’s been moulded and shaped from a single piece of wood. I love the structure!

Jameson Chair

An oldie but a goodie. This desk-chair still as good as it looks and equally comfortable for a long day at work.

Fjallberget Chair

Ikea has such good designs for the price you pay and this is no different. A simple moulded wooden piece with a grey round padding for the seat. Neat. Minimal. Functional.


Harvey Chair

More practical if you know your often rooted to the spot while in focus mode. The desk-chair from Crate & Barrel is a comfortable option while still looking good.


Mid Back Desk-Chair

This desk-chair is more open as it has no arms. You don’t have to worry about the height of your desk and it being able to fit under and you’ll still be working comfortably.

Reminiscent of the Eames Chair, the leather cushions wrapped around it’s moulded wooden shell. The Olmstead is going to be a classic look for an executive office.

Elowen Swivel

Anthropology have some really cool retro chairs and the Elowen swivel is one of them. In a cool teal velvet fabric with the gold base it’s sure to be your stand out piece.

Galt Chair

If you’re not fussed about deviating from the classic office look then the Galt from Structube is good option to go for.
