It’s been almost a year that we’ve been working from home, and if you haven’t yet invested in a proper work chair, your back is probably feeling.
While we’d all love to hold out for the day we’re back in office with our colleagues again, it might still be a little while before we get to do that. If sitting in your kitchen chair is no longer cutting it, you might be due for an upgrade for something made for sitting at a desk for eight-hour days.
Lucky for you, there are plenty of affordable desk chairs that are equally comfortable—from adequate lumbar support to a cushy seat for your tush—as they are chic. You won’t need to cramp that perfect pandemic home décor style for any of these work-from-home additions.
The Yahoo Lifestyle Canada team has done the digging for you, saving you from an endless scroll through hundreds of pages of desk chairs that eventually start to all look the same. Our personal favourite is this retro-inspired statement Lourdes Task Chair by Kelly Clarkson Home.
SHOP IT: Wayfair, $170 (originally $230)
This chair is perfect for anyone need a bit of extra cushioning under them. It comes in a whopping 14 different colours, from bright orange to bold fuchsia or muted ivory, tan and charcoal grey. The rounded back offers a solid amount of support, while the gold metal legs provide an added touch of glam for your home office.
Why shoppers love it
Don’t take our word for it—the Kelly Clarkson Home Lourdes Task Chair boasts more than 2,300 reviews and has an almost-perfect star rating.
“The velvet is vet sort to the touch and I have had no issues sitting on the chair for 4-5 hours at a time,” one happy shopper wrote. “I also like that the back is slightly angled. On top of all that, the chair took less than 5 minutes to assemble!”
Another reviewer complimented the chair for its comfort, writing: “This is a beautiful, soft, supportive and all-around perfect chair.” One shopper gushed over the chair being a perfect pop of colour for their office, saying: “It is the wow factor for my office.”
Have a small space? One shopper called the chair “perfect, comfortable and not too big.”
