Modern Desk Chairs

The world of work is changing, and how we work is changing, too. With more Americans than ever working from home or small, independent offices, the need for comfortable and stylish office furniture has only increased. Working ergonomically and fashionably at the same time is now more possible than ever thanks to new insight and design strategies. From desks to cabinets, today’s office furniture is made with the user and their lifestyle in mind. At west elm, we’ve cultivated a collection of modern desk chairs that blend the best of contemporary style and comfort while preserving style, so you can lean back, relax and be at your very best each time you work. From the classic, polished lines of a computer chair to the roomy, cushioned softness of an armchair, we have the furniture you need to stay focused and motivated all day long. Need something quickly? We even have quick ship chairs to help get your purchase to you lightning fast.


Setting up a computer workstation in your living room? Standard desk chairs sometimes don’t blend with the existing ambience of the room. Conversely, fabric upholstered chairs selected in a shade that matches or blends with your existing furnishings will fit right in. Upholstered linen weave desk chairs work just as well at a desk as they do for dining, letting you purchase chairs for both purposes at the same time. This works especially well in open-concept homes where the line between one room and another may not be overly defined. For a more feminine look, choose upholstered chairs with gently curving arms. For a look that’s more polished and masculine, choose a chair with a warm wooden frame and upholstered seat only. Concerned about keeping your new chairs clean? Have no fear; most upholstered chairs can be protected and then spot cleaned when life’s little messes occur.


Designing the perfect office? Let us help with office desk chairs that are anything but average. Timeless standards like our padded computer chairs on wheels let employees whisk back and forth between stations, all while providing excellent lumbar and spinal support. A gently curved back helps to encourage better posture, while a three or four-wheeled base ensures stability as you move around the room. An adjustable seat height makes it quick and easy to customize the height when employees change shifts or tasks throughout the day. Need a stepped-up executive look? Get the best of both worlds with leather upholstered desk chairs instead. Built with deep recessed seating and comfortable arm rests that make typing, talking on the phone and sitting supportive, these chairs come with either a high or low back depending on the style you choose. Contemporary leather shades like molasses and blue stone make our leather task chairs stand out from the rest.


Cultivating a conference room or meeting space that serves the needs of attendees? Stately upholstered chairs without arms let you make the most of your table space while still providing everyone with a comfortable place to sit. Alternatively, folding wooden chairs with latticework backs provide an airy, breezy feel that makes after-event cleanup quick and simple. Just close them, stack them in your storage room, and they’ll stay neatly arranged until it’s time for your next meeting. Stitched cane seat backs give each chair an air of elegance while keeping the look down-to-earth and suitable for any occasion. Even simpler in design, yet still classy, are our A-frame dining chairs. Free from complex patterns and designs, these chairs come in rich finishes like rustic walnut and antique brass, blending instantly with wooden work tables, antique furnishings and midcentury decor themes. A simple russet leather seat back attaches to the frame via four secure divots, while the roomy sitting area easily accommodates people of many shapes and sizes. Natural wood elements like knotwork and grain are left intact, giving the A-frame dining and desk chairs just a dash of country-inspired appeal.
