Have A Ball At Your Desk

Powersystems stability ball wall storage rack.
By now, many of you have one of those large exercise balls rolling around your house. Today, the trend is to make the ball work beyond your exercise routine and use it as a desk chair. It’s not unusual to spot stability balls in offices.

Keep in mind that, by virtue of its design, a stability ball, despite its moniker, is not so stable on its own. If you’re sitting at your desk, you don’t want to spend time chasing down your chair each time you get up.

You might want to consider anchoring the ball, and then you could take it a step further. Take a look:
Covered in your choice of supersoft faux fur, this inflatable exercise ball comes with a foot pump and can be used with or without the included metal stand. Available at Pottery Barn Teen for $129.
The serious looking Gaiam Balance Ball Chair is available through Amazon for $79.98.

Staples Ball
The whimsical, mushroom-like Safco Zenergy Ball Chair comes in a variety of colors, including crimson and lime green. Available at Staples for $149.99.

Do you use your stability ball as a chair? Do you have a stand or cool cover? Show us. Send your photographs to or post them on Instagram with the hashtag #AJCdiy.
