I recently moved into a smaller apartment and needed a comfortable, yet not too comfortable desk chair to complement my chic desk slash vanity area. Since I don’t have a ton of real estate in my room, this chair needed to make a big impact, but with a little budget. The solution? Amazon to the rescue!

I found this Mid-Century Velvet Accent Chair ($120) on none other than Amazon. Nope, not a high-end furniture store—not even a vintage shop. And it not only looks like a million bucks, it feels like it too. And when it was delivered, all I had to do was screw in the legs, and I finally felt like my bedroom was complete in just minutes. Bonus: It’s ergonomic and boasts a high-density sponge to alleviate any pressure while sitting for a long time.

It’s also super lightweight, so you can easily carry around the house if needed. So whether you need to elevate your office chair game in a multipurpose space like mine or need to revamp your dining area with affordable, yet gorgeous chairs, these ones are calling your name. Plus, they’re available in multiple colors to match any palette from greens to greys, so you can mix things up and try out a couple colors for an unexpected touch.

You also have three options when buying. Purchase a set of two, an office chair version with swivel legs, and the single chair with wood legs. So what’s the catch? There isn’t one. Now, I can eat at my desk, put on my makeup, and write comfortably with this retro-glam side chair.
