It was 2020, right in the middle of the pandemic, when one of our good friends stumbled across a problem—finding a well-designed office chair at an affordable price-point for his home office felt almost impossible.
It reminded us of the mattress industry we helped to reshape and disrupt as early employees and leaders of Tuft & Needle®. After just a few years, T&N not only became known for creating the #1-rated mattress online, but most importantly, for setting a new bar for customer experience, eliminating the ridiculous price markups, marketing gimmicks and unfair return policies notorious in the space.
Between confusing buzzwords, misleading features, and overly “corporate” chair designs that felt out of place in a residential setting, we knew there was an opportunity to significantly improve the product and approach—and sell a beautifully designed, well-constructed home office chair at an honest and affordable price.
Since then, we’ve spent the last 7 months developing different designs, sourcing the highest-quality materials we could find, and consistently refining the functionality of the chair to get it where it is today. After 300 hours and countless iterations (and hundreds of cups of coffee), we’re excited to bring you the chair everyone is raving about.
