Here’s the scoop on our new Elsie Upholstered Office Chair: I got a sweet deal on it from Cost Plus World Market AKA World Market. No. I’m not getting compensated for this post.
*An assembly photo tutorial is below.*
I’ve seen similar chairs to this one from Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs (Starting at $599 by the way!). I would’ve had more color options with those two but I also would’ve spent over $400 more. Besides, I like the look of the chair base and upholstery on the Elsie Chair just the way it is – much like Mark Darcy so famously liked Bridget Jones.
It took me three attempts to get this chair. Each time it was out of stock. I won’t bore you with all the details but I will share that one time I received an email that the chair was in and by the time I entered all my mailing info it was sold out. From the time I put it in my shopping cart to the time I entered my payment info! I couldn’t believe it!
I eventually got another email that the chair was back in stock a few weeks later, dropped everything and ordered it. Bonus: This time World Market was having a sale plus free shipping. In total I spent $183 (Delivery & Tax…INCLUDED).
*There’s a delivery surcharge on this item because of its size.*
Okay, that’s the back story. Now on to the chair. Since a picture is worth at least 1,000 words I have some for you. It was very easy to assemble.
The verdict: This is a great chair. The height is adjustable. Fantastic value. Easy to assemble. I highly recommend – if you can get your hands on one!!!

P.S. I shared this find with you because even though you can spend more on a similar chair doesn’t mean you should!
