We are stuck at our desks longer than anywhere else so it makes sense to invest in making them look a bit more stylish, and adding our own personal touch.

MUST HAVE MONDAY – Simply Chairs

Look stylish and be comfortable when you work… one of the world’s most expensive office chairs is a Pininfarina (retailing at $1,500,000) Its revolutionary design includes a seating surface made of fabric used by Olympic athletes for durability, comfort, coolness, and range of motion, a gel developed by Bayer Leverkausen that matches the human body’s countour.

If you are looking for something that costs a little less, you can still look classy in the Herman Miller Embody chair or the Herman Miller Aeron chair.
