What Are The Best Chairs and Desks for Writing?

We spend 1/3 of our lives at work. Much of that time is likely spent behind a desk. Bearing this in mind, it only makes sense to put some effort and money into a great desk and chair.

Most offices buy their equipment in bulk and often end up with one of the cheaper and more uncomfortable options with a focus on cost cutting rather than long-term ergonomic comfort for their employees. Not all companies (such as Apple) have the ability to purchase 10,000+ functionally designed chairs with a starting price of $1,185 and assign each employee their own customizable standing desk. I would suggest that this is one (of many) reasons that working from home is becoming more encouraged as you can opt to purchase your own equipment.

In addition to this, numerous studies have been done showing that a more comfortable chair improves productivity (by up to 17.5% according to this study), along with:

  • Easing lower back pain
  • Improving blood flow
  • Minimising musculoskeletal disorders

All of which will ultimately lead to more time off work and a less comfortable life.

We reached out to writers across the world to get their recommendations for the best chairs and desks. Here are the suggestions they made and why.

#1 Shaker Writing Desk

The timeless design of the shaker inspired writing desk offers a focused and clutter-free space, while the warm cherry simultaneously provides a comfortable and stimulating atmosphere for any blossoming writers. 

Built by Maine woodworkers, this desk will last decades as an heirloom to pass down through generations of writers, with countless stories embedded in its soul. The desk's simplicity also allows for any desk chair pairing, whether sleek and modern, elegant and formal, or a matching classic cherry like the Waterford Desk Chair.

#7 Best Chair For Freelancers: Zenith Mesh Office Chair

No Title

No Description

As an active freelancer that works from home, I love my Zenith Ergonomic desk chair. I think desk chairs are very underrated as items that you need to splurge on. Besides your bed, this is the second most used item in your life. You must have good posture and be comfortable with your workspace. 

I love the Zenith because it keeps me composed and focused with the meth back and high back for neck support. For someone that works hard, this is a must-have.

#9 Cosm (Herman Miller)

No Title

No Description

This is the new hotness from Herman Miller, intended to work alongside or even replace the Aeron. It auto-adjusts for you, so there is less tinkering with the adjustments, which is helpful if anyone else wants to sit in the chair.
