16 Modern Industrial Mid Century Office Chairs Desk Chairs

We redid my office slash spare bedroom right after we moved in since I work from home. We painted, purchased a bed frame, new linens, curtains, and I got a new desk, but I never got a desk chair! We have tried thrifting for one a few times, but none of the ones we found were height adjustable.

Armless Leather Swivel Desk Chairs

If you don’t have a ton of space and your desk is rather small, these armless chairs make great options. They are also on the lower end of the desk chair pricing spectrum. They come in tons of different faux leather colors like the ones below! These were definitely top contenders for my desk since I’m tight on space.

Black & Gold Executive Chairs

These definitely give me more of a modern, chic feel. If you like a little more pizazz these look super stylish and comfortable. They are a bit more pricey compared to the other options in this post. I also think they would be overbearing in my space. If you have a desk floating in the middle of a room, you could pull these off, but my desk is up against the wall crammed in a corner!

Super Industrial Look

When organizing all my favorite desk chairs that I found on Wayfair, I noticed a trend. One of my favorite styles is industrial and these desk chairs are VERY industrial looking incorporating a rustic faux leather look and lots of metal. Some of them also have an antique feel which I love.

Mid Century Modern Desk Chairs with Arms

I always love the simple, sleek look of mid century modern style. These office chairs are a happy medium as far as size and composition between an armless desk chair and a full on executive chair. My favorite one is in this category and I plan on purchasing it soon. Can you guess which one I’m going with?!


I can’t wait to get my desk chair ordered. I’m currently sitting on a stool that is way too high for my desk and I spend WAY too much time there for it to be uncomfortable. I don’t want to give up style for comfort. I want the best of both worlds!
