Design Ideas: Desk Chairs

So, remember when Brian build book cases for our third floor room? Well, the room is now complete, except it doesn’t have a good desk chair.  We’re currently using a wooden chair that I think is cute, but is totally the wrong proportion and Brian thinks it’s the most uncomfortable thing he’s ever sat in. So, I’m posting some that I like, to help him understand why I’m just not on board with the icky brown one from Target.

I found the above in an Apartment Therapy post on desks… unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out how to post a comment (despite being logged in…) so I had no way of asking who makes the chair!

I found some that are similar that I like, like this one is from Design Within Reach, but is decidedly out of our reach (just under $1,600 – yikes!):

It comes in lots of color and fabric options (the non-leather choices are less expensive, but still out of our budget) and it comes with or without arms and with or without wheels.  Lots of options, which is nice.

This one from Cappelini is really neat-o, but seriously (ridiculously) expensive (I don’t even think I can type the price):

It comes in high (above), medium and low and lots of fun colors.  You can see all the options here.

The above one is from Crate and Barrel and is more reasonably priced ($299), though still more than Brian’s Target option…

And just to have some variety, here are some others that I like, but that are a different style than the ones above:

That one is also from Design Within Reach (and, lordy, over $2,000), but this one is from Crate and Barrel and is only $99:

So what do you think? Any others I should take a look at? Basically, I don’t want some huge bulky chair, but Brian wants it to be comfy.

Also, soon to come: pics of our nearly finished third bedroom (where this chair will go)!

  1. P.S. Can you post a pic of your completed 3rd floor room? I’d love to see the space!

  2. Yes, do NOT get Icky Brown Chair! There are chairs out there that are comfy and cute. I worked for Steelcase, right after graduation, and am addicted to their Think chair (I’m sitting in mine right now 🙂 ). It looks like target is selling them now, and at a BARGAIN!! They are gorgeous, and highly ergonomic.

      Ooo, I do really like that chair – nice find! Sadly, I think it’s still a bit outside our budget for a desk chair right now, but I will definitely add it to the stack of “some day” chairs!

let me know what you think!
