Multi-Media Office Chairs
Office Chair Materials
In order to provide the best in affordability, quality and style, most office chairs are crafted from a combination of materials. Also known as multimedia office chairs, these office chairs make it effortless to spruce up your home office space on a budget.
Choosing Office Chair Material
Most office chairs are made up of a combination of materials – wood and metal among the most popular.
Wood material type: Multimedia office chairs will usually feature a base construction of wood, usually of solid wood or wood veneers.
Metal material type: Multimedia office chairs will also usually feature metal construction. Incorporating metal into a wood design helps to create a more durable piece – standing up to years of daily use.
Styling a Multimedia Office Chair
Multimedia office chairs feature a combination of materials – ranging from fabric and wood to leather and metal. Here’s how to pick the best one for your space.
- Pick a ‘base’ material. Most multimedia office chairs feature one ‘main’ material that stands out from the others. Choose a base material that complements or matches the surrounding decor and/or which you don’t mind being displayed in your home office.
- Narrow down by color. Next, choose a color – and go by the aesthetic of your office desk. Consider matching colors (such as a white office desk with a white chair) or contrasting (such as a black office chair with a white desk).
- Choose by comfort. Finally, try the chair out for yourself. A multimedia office chair with a main material of fabric will feel different from a multimedia office chair with a main material of leather. Go by how comfortable it feels to you – after all, the time you spend using your multimedia office chair will be spent sitting inside it!
