Chair Compare: Accord vs. Aspen

So it's come down to this. Two choices. But only one is the right choice for you. Which is it? Well, if you're upgrading to a new office chair, you've come to the right place. All too often, buyers get caught between what seems like two perfect options, especially when they're both exciting options from a top quality brand. But never fear, we're here to help you make the right decision in this month's "Chair Compare", featuring the Accord vs. the Aspen from Global Total Office!

Round 1: Style

These two modern office chairs offer the cutting edge design characteristics needed to take your interiors to the next level. The Accord features a slim back profile, boxed arms, and a 5 star base. The Aspen chair offers a ribbed back upholstery, T shaped arms, and the same great base. Based on 2015's current seating trends, the Aspen would likely take the win. The ribbed back look has been incredibly popular this year and the Aspen is one of the main reasons why. However, the popularity of the new Accord mesh back models has been the real X factor in this round. While Accord takes the win in our first round, both of these office seating solutions will earn your work environments they deserve.
