“I might be in the minority here, but I am not a huge proponent of a standard desk chair in my home office. I will always choose something beautiful but comfortable. Insert Parsons Chair here. I also love that this one is slip-covered. “No worries if I spill my coffee. It’s an easy fix!”
– Michelle’s Philosophy on Office Chairs
