Working from home has become an unpredictable reality for many of us. As for myself, this laptop I’m typing on and I have traveled every area of the house in search of the perfect makeshift workspace. We’re talking the kitchen table, the living room couch, and even the backyard patio. The change of scenery is “fun” temporarily, until the neck and lower back pains kick in.

While working from home long-term does come with many perks (including the option to stay in yoga pants all day), it cannot be denied that investing in a suitable desk and office chair are essential to remote working. However, if you’re living in a studio apartment or tiny home, you may not be able to make room for super-clunky office furniture that hogs up a ton of space. We get it! That’s why I’ve rounded up a collected of small-space-friendly office chairs that are stylish, unique, and cozy. (Bonus: Some of them are even on sale!)

Sometimes a chair is just a chair. This is not one of those times. The breathable material on the Noho chair is actually ECONYL regenerated nylon, which is made from upcycled plastic waste like reclaimed fishing nets and end-of-use carpets. Our commerce editor Amy fell in love with this lightweight and ergonomic pick because, "It intuitively responds to your movements to accommodate pressure points and improve circulation — a huge selling point for people like me who are plagued with back issues."

Cozy and compact, the Danielburnham task chair from Wayfair is an excellent choice for someone who doesn't want to compromise style for durability. It features channel tufting for an elegant touch, and down below it's framed with black metal to ensure it'll last for years to come. The chair also comes equipped with 360° swivel seat, perfect for multitasking.

Check off your to-do list, and feel glamorous while doing it, atop this velvet swivel office chair.

The Cavett faux leather chair is super simple in design, but has some cool textural elements that make for the perfect office chair. At just 17 pounds and 20" wide, this office chair is compact enough to adapt to small WFH spaces. This pick comes in a variety of color combinations and features crosshatch stitching for an interesting pop of texture.

You may not be the boss at your job, but you'll most certainly feel like one in this elegant swivel chair on wheels. Featuring mid-century modern design and cream-colored upholstery, this office chair is fully adjustable and super cozy. Staples also sells a similar guest chair that is just as cozy and stylish if you're looking for something that isn't on wheels.

The Roan wood office chair is equal parts cozy and stylish. With its brass finish, the iron base complements the warmly hued oak and plush cream fabric, while five wheels navigate your home office with ease.
