When my boyfriend moved in several months ago, he didn’t bring much more than his clothes. The one piece of furniture that came with him was his desk chair. It’s comfortable, functional and ergonomic, and yet I can’t get past the typical office chair style. I know it’s superficial, but I’d prefer a less comfortable chair that looks good in the room. I don’t think he’ll go for that idea, so I’m seplaceing for a chair that meets both demands. In the past, Apartment Therapy has recommended the Cherner Side Chair, with the caveat that it’s pricey, as well as the much more affordable Patrik from IKEA. (We notice the Patrik is also the choice of Nicole at Making It Lovely.) So what about you — do you have more suggestions for a desk chair that is both stylish and functional? — Erica P.
