Any recs for a good home office chair that is comfortable but also nice looking/stylish? It’s going to be out visible in my living room, and I’d like to use the chair as extra seating when having guests over. All of my furniture is contemporary and neutral colors but I’m not opposed to color for the chair. I’ve looked at CB2, C&B and Article but didn’t see anything. Links appreciated!

Recently got this desk chair from Staples and it’s perfect! It was $150 and it’s called the Union & Scale™ MidMod Fabric Manager Chair, Cream (UN56982)

Very cute, thank you!

Love this chair. My ass (which is not bony by ANY stretch) always usually hurts by EOD. My tailbone, specifically. Not with this one.

I asked this exact question a few months ago! Same situation as you where my desk is in my living room. I settled on a Laura Davidson. They have many colors available but I picked a dark blue. It’s been very comfortable but I do stand half the day.

I was looking at crate and barrel too and the reviews didn’t justify the price at all

Function over form on office chairs for me. I’ll note that I’m also team back pack when traveling for work because nothing is worth causing shoulder / back / neck pain.

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

RFE on my H1 extension asked for how I split my time between client site and home office. I do Mon-Thurs travel as most consultants. Should I be more concerned as this sounds like a red flag to USCIS?

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.
