MY PLACE // Choosing an Office Chair

tan office chairThe next purchase for our place is an office chair. I’m so torn. I love something that isn’t the exact same white chair everyone has and am leaning toward black, but I also love a good tan leather or gray. If I go tan leather it will have to be the perfect color, which is hard to decipher online, so I think that might be a no-go. I’d love to get something cool and unique from 1st Dibs, but apparently I have expensive taste and I also want the ability to move it up and down, so I’m thinking a modern leather office chair (or faux) will be where I land. I love this tan leather chair — it would definitely make a statement, but I’m not sure those arm rests will be ideal for an office chair. This gray office chair is on my list as it’s definitely affordable and also comes in a gray & white pattern.

I’ve rounded up some black & white groupings. Help me decide! I think that if I get a taller back I want it to be white, and if it’s a lower back it could be black or white, but I’m leaning toward black

Honestly, I like all of these options so it’s all about the little things. I think I want a cushier seat, and I like it when the arm rests have padding — so that knocks a few out.

Which would you choose?
