One of the perks of working in an office is comfortable chairs. Although I’ve worked from home for years, I sat much longer at my desk in 2020 and had back pain to prove it. I’m not kidding when I say I bought a pad for the back of my chair, one for the seat, and a heated back massager! This could have all been remedied had I bought a new office chair as I had intended! Thankfully there are quite a few gorgeous classic upholstered office chairs to choose from if you’re working from home and/or a student taking classes in your humble abode. A few months ago I dished on some of the best chairs in a variety of styles. This year I want to take it a step further and feature them by style!
Like many of you, I love a variety of styles and interior design trends! I simply adore rustic furniture, farmhouse, French country a bit of modern, coastal chic, vintage-inspired, traditional and that’s just the beginning! I love finding inspiration via coffee table books, my favorite interior design magazines, Pinterest, and social media. How about you?
Today, I’m excited to kick off my home office makeover series with the best classic upholstered desk chairs! There are so many gorgeous chairs to choose from, it was hard to just pick 23!
