For better or worse, my office gets a lot more attention than the rest of my house. I spend the majority of my waking hours in there, and because I can only work in happy, bright, pretty and modern spaces (this is a fact: pretty & inspiring=more productive), I give my office space a lot of decorating attention.
Meet Vivianne, my new office mate. She’s a little retro, a little glam, and a whole lot of fun.
White leather. High back. silver rolling base with slight rocking ability. She’s GORGEOUS.
I found her at Staples, on a whim. She’s hundreds of dollars less than similar models at my fave fancy furnishing stores, but just as comfortable, functional, and just plain oh so lovely.
For an additional $7.99, the super nice folks at Staples will put together your office chairs and load them into your car for you. For an additional $24.98, you can buy a 3-year guarantee wherein after registering online, you can call them at anytime within the first three years to have your chair replaced for any reason, and you don’t have to send your old chair back (they send you a gift card for the amount you spent). I have two kids and a big dog. This is a white chair. You bet I bought that replacement guarantee.
So the moral of this stylish shopping tale: don’t overlook your neighborhood office supply stores when looking for super cool, modern furnishings. Beyond the stuffy oak and traditional lines, you might find a little urban bliss shining in the corner, calling your name.
