Task Chair Alternatives: 10 Dining Chairs for a Home Office

Task Chair Alternatives: 10 Dining Chairs for a Home Office

Finding a stylish office chair can be a nightmare. When I transitioned into working from home, I spent weeks poring over catalogs and browsing online for an office chair that wouldn't make my bedroom/home office feel too...office-y.

Sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day can take a toll on your body, so comfort and support were also top priorities. The clouds parted when I decided to open my search up to some other furnishings departments, ending up with a fabulous dining chair from West Elm - it even swivels. I added a lumbar pillow and haven't looked back. Check out these dining chairs that can easily masquerade as office furniture and still feel comfortable throughout the day.
