When it was announced back in March that offices everywhere were closing to prevent the further spread of Covid-19, we were completely unaware of how long we would be OOO.
Mugs were abandoned filled with tea, lunch deserted in the fridge and most importantly, the critical tech and office equipment left behind.
As the months dragged on, we had a collective belief that we would soon be returning, so what would be the point in forking out our hard-earned cash for a home set-up? How wrong we were.
The government announced the latest lockdown measures will keep people working from home for at least the next six months, so it’s officially worth investing in your situation - whether that’s finally getting a desk or treating your back to the kindness of an ergonomic chair.
Yet for the practical among us, we can’t help but wonder what will you do with it after? Let’s be frank, traditional desk chairs aren’t the most attractive to have in your carefully curated space and tend to be overly cumbersome. We may have found a solution.
We have trawled the Internet to find office desk chairs that will not only combat the back pain that has emerged since WFH, but will also fit seamlessly among your decor.
These are stylish office-to-accent pieces that will only further add to your space instead of becoming an eye-sore.
See our pick of the best - your spine will thank you for it.
Made Margot Office Chair
The Margot from MADE takes the traditional swivel chair and gives it a contemporary twist to revolutionise the style and make it work for smaller space. Available in a blush pink hue or this seafoam blue hue, it will add instant style points to your space, while allowing you to rotate to your heart’s desire. The base has a copper finish and the fabric is upholstered and super soft to the touch. Ideal for all-day use, the seat cushion has been heavily padded.

Wahson Velvet Swivel Chair with Gold Base
Oyster shell chairs have been a huge hit on the interiors scene for a couple of years and you can now shop the style for your home office. Taking a completely different approach to the eye-sore designs of time gone by, this statement piece nails both style and substance. It has a soft velvet and height-adjustable construction. It comes in teal blue or blush pink - both of which feature a gold base.
Lule Office Chair
This subtle swivel chair from MADE doesn’t have the traditional wide leg and wheels that you may associate with a typical office chair. Instead, it’s the seat itself that moves around. On top of this handy feature, it boasts a clean and considered design and comes look in a huge range of colours, whether you want a more neutral two-tone grey or a bolder pop of colour with yellows, oranges and emerald greens all on offer. The seat has a good amount of cushion to keep you supported through the 9 to 5 - not to mention all those extra overtime hours. The legs are crafted from walnut to add an extra level of sophistication.
