Budget-friendly Task Chair?

Good Questions

Q: I recently purchased the West Elm Slideaway desk without realizing that, at 33 inches, the main surface would be too high to comfortably type on my laptop with my current desk chair. Anyone know of a good taller or adjustable height desk chair that isn't too spendy or ugly? I think the right chair needs to be at least 23 inches high at the seat. Thanks in advance!

Sent by SarahEditor: I like the bungee cord studio office chair from CB2 — surprisingly comfy for $189. BUT it is very officey in appearance and might be too bulky for such a tiny desk. Perhaps an adjustable height stool would be best to maintain a nice balance of scale and proportion? Who else has suggestions for Sarah?
