Quality Wood Office Chairs
A wood office chair brings a classic elegance to any home office – especially when paired with an elegant wood desk. To help you choose the perfect quality wood office chair for your home office space, check out these tips on wood types and design styles.
Types of Wood Office Chairs
While the term ‘wood office chairs’ tends to connote quality construction, it’s important to remember that the type of wood used in the craftsmanship can affect the quality of the chair more than the wood design itself. To ensure your new wood office chair is built to last, with the highest-quality standards, look for chairs made from any one of these wood types:
- Solid Wood
- Wood Veneer
- Poplar Wood
- Oak Wood
- Birch Wood
- Pine Wood
Wood Office Chair Designs
Wood office chairs come in a variety of styles, and while choosing the best one for your space boils down to your personal taste, there are a couple objective measures you can take to make sure the one you pick will blend in with your decor and make your space feel refreshed and pulled-together.
First, consider the color. While white and natural chairs will generally go with any color scheme, be wary of pairing brown and black (as, for example, a black desk with a brown chair), which can feel ‘clashed’ together. Secondly, consider the design type; most wood office chairs tend to come in several types of silhouettes, ranging from simple designs with high slat backs and stationary legs to more contemporary styles featuring legs on wheels.
Choose a style that best suits how you prefer to work. If you need to swivel or move frequently, opt for a portable chair with casters; if you’re simply looking for a piece that will give you a comfortable place to sit at a desk, stick with a classic stationary design.
