For many managers at the modern offices task of placing their guests or other people on comfortable chairs is a problem of practical nature. Depending on class of business and funds, which are available for improving comfort at office, office guest chairs can range from exquisite designs by renowned brands like Herman Miller, or more simple but practical chairs.
Should there be a difference, visual or otherwise, between chairs for top management, hired workforce and guests? Well, each business owner decides this for himself. After all every chair conveys its own story to all who see and use it. And modern office guest chairs are often too strict and similar in their way. Utilitarianism, efficiency and blank emotional state are their most defining characteristics, but if owner is inclined to something more niche and marginal – weird designs might fit as well, and buying them for guests might give convenient excuse to their classist colleagues who might question wisdom in getting such furniture for office.
Nowadays a lot of hardworking manufacturers adopt sophisticated designs with mostly suitable materials. Oversized guest chairs for office with contoured plastic arms are used as the most affordable solution, but not any longer as stacker, pillow cushion and traditional mahogany wood chairs are getting cheaper by the day. Usually their price is about 110-160 dollar, but some retailers offer regular promotion and price drops to keep them even lower.
