A desk chair cannot simply look nice, it must work. Otherwise we'd all be buying cute dining room chairs to do the job, rather than an alien-looking rolly chair that goes with literally nothing else in the house. Now don't take this the wrong way—you don't need a desk chair that swivels, glides, raises, lowers, bounces, squishes, and supports your lumbar. (And if you do, just skip right over and buy this.) What you need is a chair that does one or two of those things and looks nice while it's at it. Something that's comfortable but also functional, but not too functional-looking. You might have to spend a little extra to get a good one, but you will not regret it!
And to everyone who thinks they don't have room for a desk in their eentsy apartment, think again: One of these pretty desk chairs + this fold-down wall desk = a fully-functional work space in pretty much zero square feet. Fold it up when you're done working and use your cute desk chair as a hang-out seat.
