The Best and Most Beautiful Home Office Chairs

If your back is sore from hunching over your desk, it might be time to upgrade your chair

When it comes to home office essentials, the right chair tops the list. Good seating supports your posture and can help ward off back aches: A 2012 review published by BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders found that modifying your chair can prevent strain and minimize back and shoulder pain. This means that anyone who has worked hunched over a dining room table for the past two years can likely benefit from a chair upgrade. If you’re in the market for a more ergonomic office chair, or want to add a pop of colour to your home office, here’s our top picks for the best and most beautiful office chairs from Canadian brands.

Maison Corbeil's black leather Pitch chair

Classic black leather swivel chair

Rolling in from a Montreal-based, family-run décor biz, this adjustable swivel office chair takes inspiration from the legendary Eames Shell Chair. The black leather seat is accented with slim arms, guaranteeing a visual impact that won’t overwhelm a small workspace.
