    Desk arm-chair/ Office chair (arm-chair)

    Is there a difference? Is the word desk arm-chair a little dated?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: Desk arm-chair/ Office chair (arm-chair)

    A desk chair is usually an adjustable height chair for use at someone's desk. It may or may not have arms. An armchair is a piece of living room furniture with arms or it can be a piece of dining room furniture with arms as opposed to a side chair that has no arms. They are all in current use.
