Many office furniture retailers such as Office Max or Office Depot typically sell cheap imitation wood desks and chairs that are made with particle board and a thin veneer that looks like cherry or birch solid wood. These obviously don’t have the same life span of solid wood, nor do they support your office supplies, computer, monitor, and other stuff nearly as well.

It is also standard for wood desk chairs to come with customized adjustment options such as tilt and tension rigidity. Many will even allow you to raise or lower you chair much like the more modern chairs made of plastic or metal.
