Let’s say you’re a bit of a germaphobe… even in the confines of your own home. If we’re being honest, all those soft, supple fabrics and layered, tufted textiles probably aren’t doing you any favors where dust and bacteria are concerned; in fact, studies have shown that in hotel rooms, after the remote control (an obvious culprit), the most bacteria on any given day is generally found on the duvet cover, which is highly porous and doesn’t necessarily get washed along with the sheets and blankets underneath. So when it comes to keeping your home as germ-free as possible, surfaces are key. We found this anti-bacterial, anti-microbial chair in, of all places, a school furnishings store — which makes sense, considering the amount of sticky little fingers the average teacher is subjected to on a daily basis. The “Anatomy” chair, as it’s called, is ergonomically designed and covered in a wipeable vinyl that keeps the cooties at bay when tended to on a regular basis. Giving a linear nod back to midcentury modern office furniture, the chair is set atop a quintet of casters on a steel base. It stands 18 3/4″ – 22 3/4″ tall and comes with a seven-year warranty on its gas lift (as well as a two-year warranty on the vinyl itself). A perfect desk or kitchen chair for any self-proclaimed immune system watchdog, the Anatomy chair sells for $140.
