Win an Office Chair

I don’t know if this is just our household but working from home doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, in fact it looks like becoming a permanent fixture. With that in mind there can be no more just making do with what we’ve got! Thankfully Lakeland Furniture have a huge amount of choice, so when it comes to finding the right office chair they’ve got your back. Plus they sell all sorts of other chairs and garden furniture.

We’re so glad we had built the extra space

Before the lockdowns and before Covid was something we even thought about we had built an extension to give ourselves a little more space. Part of that was a very multi purpose spare room, part office, part guest room, part storage. We thought it out well and made sure we had space for a futon for guests. Sorted out a wall mounted desk that could be folded away when not in use. Got a full furniture set so we could use the wardrobe for the clothes that don’t always get worn and had no space and drawers for all my crafting supplies. The only thing we didn’t get was an office chair because it wouldn’t have anywhere to live when the space was being used as a bedroom and I was more than happy using a chair from the dining table for the few hours each day I was using the desk.

Then everything changed.

Home learning
Home schooling was interesting

Overnight our routines were thrown into disarray. The schools were closed and I had to switch from working during the day to working in the evening. All of a sudden the spare room stopped being a space for me to work in peace and quiet and craft. Me and my Chromebook were relegated back to the sofa and it was a full time office, with two monitors and copious amounts of paperwork and a husband thinking he could actually use my stationery! I was actually at work when the announcement was made, so came home to a mild panic and a lot of ‘what on earth will we do’s’.

It was only temporary though. Only temporary.

One fold away desk and a very uncomfortable chair

So my husband drove to his office, gathered everything he would need for the foreseeable future, including his office chair and we sorted out a home office and set very clear boundaries on which paper clips were up for grabs and which pens he could actually touch. So grateful for the extra space we had created.

My day job were great about swapping my hours about to accommodate the childcare aspect and blogging very much took a back seat, I simply couldn’t do it all.

Finally now, things are starting to settle down, things are going back to the way they were. The only thing is home working seems here to stay for my husband, it looks like there will be a mix of being in the office a few days a week and at home for the rest of it. This means the chair he borrowed from his office has had to go back, but he can’t work 8 hours a day from a dining chair either so we’ve had to find a new chair for home.

We’re getting into the swing of things again now.

  1. I think a lot of us have had rooms taken over for working from home. With us it’s the dining room so it would be great to have this stylish edition to our office/dining room.

  2. This would be so handy. We have four adults working from home at the moment and guess who has the dining room chair!

  21. This chair would be perfect for my daughter who is now going to be permanently working from home

    1. Is she happy about the move to working from home, I keep reading in the media that people hate but I haven’t found a single person yet in real life who isn’t enjoying it.

  22. Great office chair and just what I need, thank you🤞
    Love your light box too, would like to know where to get one like that.

    1. It’s really nice isn’t it, I know a lot of people who have suffered with make do chairs for a year now and could do with a proper office chair. I got the lightbox from Home Bargains a few years ago now.
