Affordable Office Chair Roundup – 24 Options Under $200!

August 10, 2017 in Design Plans

My brother and his girlfriend are both starting their sophomore year of college this year – cue tears! How can they be this grown up already? Jackie, my brother’s girlfriend, is moving into her sorority for the first time. I’m so ecstatic for her – these first two years of college are such a fun and exciting time. She purchased a new desk similar to this one and is in need of a fun desk chair to match. Obviously she texted her boyfriend’s cool older sister and I threw together a roundup of 24 affordable desk chairs for her to pick from.

The goal was to stay under $200 for all 24 chairs. Personally, my go to store for a fun chair would be Homegoods. But, since they don’t have an online store I picked out some favorites from Amazon, World Market, Ikea, and West Elm. I also tried to include a good range of colorful options, comfortable options, and neutral options. If you sit at a desk all day like me then sometimes comfort outweighs style. (GASP! I can’t believe I just said that!) Fingers crossed she picks one of the crazier options – nothing says go with fun and color like living in a sorority house!

I had so much fun searching for a bunch of options for her. I tried to include a wide variety so anyone with any style could easily find something that fits in their home. I was surprised at how many great upholstered options I found that were within budget. Colorful options were in total abundance as well. I also love me a good cowhide print since I included not one but two cowhide options! The leather options like options 1 and 24 are great neutrals but give that extra lux look. I think if you have more of the classic neutral vibe number 22 is your best bet. If you classify your style as farmhouse – go with 6 for sure. Midcentury? 17 or 20! Modern – literally any of these options! HA!

My top picks are numbers 5, 8, 16, 17, and 21. If I had to choose one to order today I think it would be a tough competition between number 16 and 17. Number 21 is also SUCH a good deal and super trendy so that one is definitely in the mix as well. Good thing I don’t have my office design plan done because obviously I can’t decide! Let me know what your favorite picks are in the comments below! Happy shopping!

    Oh my gosh I love these options! I might have to redo my office just to buy one of these chairs. I love the cowhide ones.
