What chair do you use? Link me up. I need something new because the executive chair takes up too much space in my new, smaller space.

I'd love to see as well. I'm thinking of getting this desk for my smaller space as well. My current desk is waaaaay too big in there.

Chairs are SO personal. I would go to Staples or Office Max and sit on chairs until I found a comfortable one. My husband uses a "secretary's chair" at his. I use an executive chair at mine - both with lumbar support.

I have the $40 office chair from Ikea and it's great for me.

Linda I agree. The problem is, this desk, with the Alex drawers under it, seems to be a little higher than a normal desk. I have an executive chair that goes up and down and its at its highest setting. I'm 5'6 and my feet don't touch the floor. So I know there is a height difference. I don't mind the dangling feet so much but I want to make sure I'm high enough to where I can work comfortably. Most office chairs are larger so I was hoping for an idea on what others with this desk use so I have a starting point.

I'm going to check out that chair from Ikea the next time I go.

I use the Franklin chair. I have my desk at the highest height.
