Chances are, you’re figuring out how to adjust to WFH life. (Personally, I’m writing this in my childhood bedroom sitting on a dining room chair.) For those of you working in an already tiny space, squeezing in a home office might feel next to impossible. If it’s just one day you can park on the sofa or kitchen table, but that’ll get annoying fast. We’ve covered stylish office chairs and multifunctional desks, but what if you really can’t fit in another piece of furniture into your space?

Enter this folding chair. Sure, it’s not the most attractive option, but at times like these functionality comes first. Plus, it’s not like it’ll be open and out at all times—just take it out when you need it, and put it away behind your sofa, in a closet, or in some other tiny spot when you’re done. Even better? It’s actually comfortable. Unlike traditional folding chairs, this model is actually flexible, with a seat and backrest that fit around whoever’s sitting.

“We purchased to accommodate last minute extra guests at Thanksgiving,” says one happy reviewer. “4 bottles of wine later folks were still sitting in these chairs—they are that comfortable.” Folding chairs that are Thanksgiving dinner-approved? Sign us up.

“I got these chairs for meetings we hold at other people’s houses,” says another reviewer. “The first time I sat down in one I was impressed. Much lighter than metal chairs, they don’t get cold and are more comfortable. Very sturdy, and the caps on the end of the legs prevent scratching floors in other people’s houses. Great value for the price.”

While this chair is sold individually, we also found a very similar chair sold as a pack of four at Wayfair. If you have roommates who also need a chair, or just want to have a few for future use, that set could be more beneficial for your needs. Either way, you’ll have a multifunctional chair that can be used for WFH life and beyond.
