Today we’re looking for executive chairs that mean business.

Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Executive Chairs” and we’ve got loads of them.

There is nothing like starting the work week with a piece of furniture that means business. The executive chair blends the comfort of traditional office chairs with the sophistication of someone in a commanding position. Usually upholstered in leather, these chairs come in either mid-back or high-back styles and are iconic of making it to the big time.

  • Nothing says power and comfort like a nice office chair. I can just imagine sitting in one of these chairs (namely Eames) in the near future, in a corner office. Ahhhh :)

  • Great read, thanks. I absolutely love the last two chairs that are listed, I would love to have those in an office of mine someday. These chairs delivered a nice set of options as well, all different price levels and all different styles! I think it would be hard not to conduct a great day of business directing from one of these chairs :)
