6 Reader-Favorite Task Chairs

Scroll through the comments on Apartment Therapy and you'll quickly find that our readers are a passionate group of folks. So when I went searching for the perfect new desk chair, I looked back at some old posts and culled the opinions of our commenters…

1. The overwhelming favorite among readers is the Herman Miller Aeron chair. While the chair's appearance may not appeal to everyone, almost all commenters vouch for the chair's comfort. $849+

2. When reading through old posts about desk chairs, the Steelcase Leap Chair constantly pops up in comments. Many readers not only find it comfortable but they also prefer the appearance of it over the Aeron chair. $879+

3. Of course, not everyone can shell out $900 for an office chair. Budget-minded readers pointed us in the direction of Crate & Barrel's Ripple Chair. $299

4. The Studio Office Chair from CB2 also ranks high among readers. Commenters find the chair to be comfortable and stylish. As an added bonus, one reader pointed out that her cat doesn't like sitting in the chair. Good news for anyone who has ever discovered a fur ball on her desk chair in the morning. $189

5. Astute readers also pointed out the Bungee Office Chair from Container Store. The chair is very similar to the CB2 chair but it's half the price and is offered with more color options. $99

6. Another budget-friendly suggestion from readers is PB Teen's Perforated Airgo Chair. This chair was mentioned in comments a few times as being comfortable and attractive. $170-$199
