10 stylish office chairs under $100 if you’re tired of WFH backaches

by Natalie Lim

I’ve no qualms that investing in a good office chair is key to productivity at home. Coming from someone who used to sit at her dining chair for work, I thoroughly understand the agony of sitting for long hours and having to fidget constantly because of the aching pains

Now that I’ve upgraded to a proper working chair, I no longer feel butt sores and backaches. This “novelty” allows me to work with lesser distractions, and even serves my gaming addiction. If that sounds like an upgrade you need, I’ve curated a list of stylish office chairs under $100 that’ll fit right at home while keeping your budget tight.
