Go Vintage with a Velvet Chair

QVC Home Reflections Velvet Pleated Office Chair H226541

There’s no rule saying an office chair needs to be boring. The velvet upholstery on this sleek, vintage-inspired chair can add a splash of color to your workplace. The wheels and cozy seat make it just as mobile and comfortable as the more typical, yawn-inducing office chairs, meaning that style doesn’t require any sacrifice on your part. Plus, if you use a corner of your living room instead of a designated room, it will look much more natural than a traditional office chair.
