Gone are the days of clunky, dark, uncomfortable office chairs. From sleek, unconventional lines to distressed traditional finishes, today’s chairs have much to offer in terms of color, comfort and cost. The right white office chair can both brighten and modernize your home office.
Think About Function and Comfort
Adding a white desk chair to your home office will brighten the space. If you prefer a computer desk chair that allows you to pivot between your laptop and a printer, choose a white swivel desk chair. For a chair the whole family will use, choose one with an adjustable height feature. Have kids in the house? Select a fabric that’s easy to clean, such as faux leather.
Be sure to choose an ergonomic office desk chair that supports your lower back and thighs. Armrests should be adjustable so you can position your arms close to your body and allow your shoulders to remain relaxed. If the chair doesn’t have a footrest, then feet should rest flat on the floor comfortably. Finally, the chair’s fabric should be breathable so that it doesn’t become uncomfortable after several hours of sitting.
Accessorize to Add Style
A modern white office chair
commands attention, especially if it’s the only white piece of furniture in the room. Here’s how to add extra style to this statement piece:
• Pair a white faux leather chair
with other neutral colors like gray or black for a modern look. Add pillows with a floral or geometric pattern to create eye-catching contrast.
• An Oxford chair with wooden slats gives off a sophisticated vibe. Flank your desk with bookcases for a worldly look.
• A white fuzzy desk chair is a playful way to accessorize a teen’s room. Add pops of color with a desk lamp and pencil holders.
Remember there are many shades and hues of white, so use caution when buying multiple pieces of white furniture. Always compare samples of paint or fabrics that contain the whites you wish to match.
