Today is the last day of our second week of hybrid learning. My kindergartener, Colton, does 3 days of virtual learning at home and 2 days in his classroom. So, a good kids desk chair is a must! I partnered with Wayfair to share the Byron Task Chair as my pick for the best kids desk chair! Read on for a sneak peek at Colton’s virtual learning setup…

This virtual learning setup was definitely a labor of love. It started as a quarantine project way back in March, along with redoing the rest of his bedroom. I wanted to source as many of the pieces as possible secondhand, so I stalked the Facebook Marketplace like a madwoman for months. (Speaking of FB Marketplace, this post on how to sell on Facebook Marketplace fast is still one of my most popular posts ever!)
Although I found a lot of the pieces for this “built-in” desk secondhand, I knew I didn’t want to skimp on his desk chair. Both Colton and Blair spend a lot of time in it, since she likes to join in his Zoom meetings as well. She feels like such a big girl “helping” Bubba with school.
I selected the Byron Task Chair by 17 Stories on Wayfair for Colton’s virtual learning setup. Wayfair has lots of task office chairs to choose from, so I’ll explain why I chose this specific one:
- Adjustable Height: The Byron Task Chair has a 20.9″ maximum seat height. This is higher than many other options we looked at. I wanted a chair that would raise high enough for him to reach the top of the desk now (as a 5-year-old), plus be able to lower as he grows.
- Sleek Design: Colton’s room has a minimalist aesthetic, and this chair fits right in.
- Swivel: Colton’s only request was that his chair be able to spin!
- Comfortable for Kids and Adults: This was the biggest factor. Although we’re using it as a kids desk chair, the Byron Task Chair is technically designed for adults. I’ve sat it in several times and it’s comfortable for me, but it’s not so large that it’s overwhelming in a kid’s room.
Oh, and speaking of finding items secondhand–after literally months of searching, I finally decided to buy a couple remaining desk parts brand new. Of course, I found them on the Marketplace for a fraction of the cost the very next day. I *knew* that would happen! I have the worst luck with that stuff.
Funny story behind this photo: Colton’s teacher is working on compound words, and one of her examples was handstand. So, of course Blair hops up to demonstrate a handstand for the group on Zoom. She’s becoming quite the little gymnast, probably because she spends so much time with our home gymnastics setup in the basement.
I even started Blair her own dance/gymnastics TikTok account. Give her a follow @blairkarmen!
Anyway, this virtual learning stuff is no joke, especially with a kindergartener. I definitely think getting Colton a good kids desk chair helped a ton with his comfort level, and, in turn, his ability to stay focused on his Zoom calls.
