Power Couples: Desks and Office Chairs
Happy Monday Folks, we are back to our regularly scheduled design content after a big recap of everything that happened at Round Top last week and we have some very fun content coming up for you this week including some updates at my house, some reveals, and today we are starting it off with another edition of Power Couples. We’ve had multiple requests for desk and chair combos and although we can’t guarantee that they will make your work week easier or more productive (hello Monday) we can promise that they will make it a lot more pretty.
So whether you are looking for a party space like my friend Jen’s office from Ban.do, or something more eclectic and collected like Sally Breer’s office that we shot for the book, we have pulled together some of our very favorite combos in every style and price range. With each of these combos we had a few rules. 1) the desk had to be at least 12″ deep so that you could work at it with a laptop (although most are deeper), 2) the chair had to either swivel or roll – or both, 3) the desk had to have some form of storage so that it wasn’t just a table. Although we did make an exception to that rule on two of the combos below as they were just too pretty not to include.
1. Washed Wood Desk & Argo Desk Chair | 2. Harrison Desk & White and Gold Desk Chair | 3. Hackett Writing Desk & Sherpa Armless Chair | 4. Dover Desk & Slope Leather Office Chair | 5. Aroma Desk & Platt Desk Chair | 6. Wellington Writing Desk & Mid Back Desk Chair | 7. Mid Century Mini Desk & Soho Desk Chair | 8. Mid Century Desk & Patrik Chair | 9.

I am loving #2 if you are looking for a glam/midcentury look, although I will caution you with white chairs as we have something very similar in our studio, our jeans have started to turn them blue a bit. Nothing a quick cleaning can’t fix but something to be aware of. If you are trying to be budget friendly then #17’s parson inspired desk is a steal at $63, and don’t worry we have 16 more below for you, we just split it into two roundups to make navigating back and forth between pictures and links a little more simple.
1. Modern Desk & Plaid Desk Chair | 2. Rubbed Black Quade Desk & Victor Swivel Office Chair | 3. Adam Court Console & Kinney Velvet Desk Chair | 4. Lindsey Desk & Mid-Back Desk Chair | 5. Cubist Oak Metal Writing Desk & Oma Egg Chair | 6. Parker Desk & Neo Upholstered Wingback Chair | 7. Amica Desk & Mid-Back Leather Desk Chair | 8. Lillasen Desk & Langfjall Swivel Chair | 9.
