I Love This Purple Seat Cushion While Working From Home, 'Cause I Don't Diss Comfort

When it comes to home decor choices, I am fully willing to admit I usually opt for form over function. (Unless it's my bed, where I prefer a cloud-like feel, even if the down comforter, feather topper, and linen sheets give it a disheveled, puffy look.) But that design-driven taste definitely won out when it comes to my office, as one of my more memorable splurges was on the Ghost Chair I'd always coveted. Yes, it is essentially just a plastic seat, but I love the way it looks . . . and told myself the clear colour would take up less visible space in my small room, too.
But then, 2020 hit. Before this year, I worked from home about two days per month, max. Maybe I was still in the honeymoon phase, yet I don't remember giving the chair's feeling much thought until we became even better acquainted.
As soon as I began sitting there all week long, I knew this chair wouldn't do. At first, I swapped in one of my (slightly padded) dining chairs — better, not great — before a random conversation with friends finally shone a bright light on my new hero, the Purple cushion. Come along on this journey ahead, and see why I don't diss comfort any longer.
