    Promising review: "Glad I picked this chair after hours of research. I needed a comfy one to support my lower back and elbows/arms for 8 hour workdays while working from home. Didn't want one with wheels as it felt too office-y and unnecessary. Also, I wanted something very modern looking and different, and this fit the bill. Minor con is it doesn't fit under our table, but the trade-off is the arm padding for support while typing. Sturdy chair, nice materials and finish, and it's easy to assemble." —Christopher

    Promising review: "I don't care for rolling office chairs, and I wanted a cantilevered chair similar to mid-century designer ones. This chair is sturdy and comfortable for working in. Sometimes I use a pillow with it, and I like to cognac plastic leather color (I think it looks like a pop of warmth with white furniture). I enjoy having the arms." —Victoria

    Features a black vinyl material and wooden frame for added style and sturdiness.

    Promising review: "So glad I bought this chair. I wanted something comfortable in my home office. I didn’t want a high back chair because it’s a small room or wheels because we just redid our wood floors and this is perfect! The only thing missing is a matching foot stool for when I just want to sit and read with the fireplace going." —Nicole Werner 

    Get it from Amazon for $178.99.

    19. An armless desk chair with no wheels you'll find pretty tuft to say no to as it'll help you complete that modern look you were going for.

    The steel legs feature a powder-coated finish that resist scratches and corrosion, and a 360-degree swivel.

    Promising review: "I don’t like office chairs with wheels, but I wanted something that swiveled and had a bit of modern style. This chair completely delivered. Having used it for almost half a year, the upholstery remains soft and supple, and the curved shape helps with workday posture. No, this isn’t a super fancy ergonomic office chair with a million adjustable features, but it’s elegant and far more comfortable than your cheap rolling chair. I also added caps to the feet to protect them from the concrete floors in my office room." —Lauren

    Get it from Wayfair for $219.99 (originally $299.99).

    20. A retro framed desk chair with no wheels for anyone looking to take their home office from stuffy and boring to totally ~far out~ and it feels pretty good on your buns too.

    White fluffy chair with four gold legs on a white tile floor in front of gray wall, close up of product on a wooden floor

    Comes upholstered in a shaggy cream polyester blend fabric and brushed metal legs for a sturdy foundation.

    Promising review: "Bought this for a desk and it completes the room perfectly! Pretty much as pictured. Was a little concerned the faux fabric would be a little too 'faux' looking, but was pleasantly surprised! The chair has a nice weight to it, so that was a bonus. When a chair is too light sometimes it can feel cheap, so happy to report that is not the case here. Overall, very pleased with my purchase." —Angela

    Get it from Wayfair for $124 (originally $359.99). 

    21. A steel-framed desk chair with no wheels, stitched together with bonded leather so you stay focused on getting work done and *less* on seeing how fast you can wheel from one side of the room to the other.

    Also comes decked out with a steel sled base that's gentle on your floors, making this one of those things you may want for you home office.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my office at work as a side/guest chair. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but I also didn't want to end up with cheap junk. I didn't know if that was possible, but I believe this chair made it possible. Assembly wasn't bad, but I think you do need two sets of hands. One person could do it, but I think it would be frustrating and more difficult than it needs to be. Once assembled, it is a comfortable sturdy chair. People have been stopping in to try it out, and they agree. There was some skepticism, as they thought a chair bought from Amazon rather than from an office store would be bad. They were pleasantly surprised. It looks very nice, as well. Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase. I would recommend this chair." —C.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $92.02.

    22. An inexpensive plastic chair with wooden, wheel-less legs for anyone looking for a functional, no-frills addition to their office. It's simple, it's practical, and it'll support you through your work day.

    This practical style would also work for small home offices, BTW!

    Promising review: "This chair not only looks stylish but is also very easy to assemble. It’s comfortable to sit in. It is not adjustable. There are fuzzy pads that you can remove and/or put on the four legs, so it’s scratch-free." –M.O. R

    Get it from Amazon for $67.53+ (available in seven colors and in sets of two).
