As I mentioned yesterday, I need a new desk chair. Not only is mine falling apart, lately, the seat seems really hard. (Not sure why, all of a sudden.) So, when Tesco (yes, the British supermarket) got in touch asking me to tout its great office chairs selection, I figured it was a good a time as any to investigate. I found the usual suspects by Knoll and Herman Miller at Design Within Reach and Smart Furniture, and some high end contemporary models at Hive and Unica Home. Of course I browsed IKEA, West Elm, and CB2 for some less expensive choices too.
My favorites, the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair and the Eames Aluminum Executive, are both way too expensive, Any other thoughts? Here’s my desk:
