My freelance business turned into a full time job with my move to Chicago over three years ago. Before that, I had a makeshift desk space in my room, but decided that I needed my new home office to look a bit more inspired and professional. I was going to be spending a lot of time in that small office, so it needed to be really comfortable.
To keep that office looking cozy, I decided against a regular desk chair and opted for a custom upholstered dining chair that added some pattern and personality to my space. I ended up adding a fun rug from Lulu & Georgia too! You can see my old office here if you want! I really loved that office space because it was totally separate from the rest of the apartment and made it easy to get focused during the day and shut off work at the end of the day.
Our new place is smaller and so keeping my work space organized and tidy is key to keeping my sanity! As much as I love that upholstered chair, it’s seen better days. The fabric is ripped in a few places and looking a bit dingy, so lately I’ve been browsing ideas for new desk chairs. Again, I don’t want anything that looks to ‘officey’, but something that ties in with the rest of our apartment since my work space is now right by the kitchen/living/dining rooms — I told you it was small!

I haven’t purchased anything yet, because I’m not sure which one I like best! I’m stuck between the Ghost Chair, the Wishbone Chair and the Eames-style plastic chair. I love the Ghost Chair because it’s low profile and will keep the place looking bigger and I love the Wishbone Chair because I love the shape and color. The plastic chair is just one I’ve loved forever! Originally that’s what I wanted for our dining table, but couldn’t find them cheap enough (until now). Do you have any favorites? Which one should I pick?!
