So many more of us are working from home nowadays – and your posture won’t thank you if you don’t use a proper office chair for the purpose! At the same time though, compromising on style is not an option – this is going to be a fixture in your home for years to come. Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it by choosing a chair from our range of five favourite swivel chairs for the home office.
From a company that produces endless ranges of beautiful, hardworking and reasonably-priced furniture comes Made.com’s Flynn office chair. Designed to feel like the best seat in the house, it is made from faux leather in a beautiful beige putty colour (though a pale grey version is also available) and stands on a swivel base with castors. The height-adjustable chair means that you’re not skimping on practicality either.
