la sedia da ufficio

October’s “Il Bollettino” is now ready: you can get it from the iBook Store (with audio), Google Play and Selz (pdf only)!

The next five days we are going to look at useful words that I picked up from reading the most recent IKEA catalog that came to my home here in Rome the other day! I learned some new things so I am sure most of you are bound to learn something new, too! ūüôā

Today’s¬†Parola del Giorno is the noun,¬†la sedia da ufficio, which¬†means¬†office chair.¬†For many of us, the office chair is something that we probably spend a lot of time in every day (at least those of us that work or used to work in offices). See the noun used below in its context

Hai visto il nuovo catalogo dei mobili?

Did you see the new furniture catalog?

No, perché?

No, why?

C’√® una sedia da ufficio che mi piace molto. Sembra molto comoda, adatta per stare seduti alla scrivania per ore.

There is an office chair that I like very much. It seems very comfortable, suitable for sitting at the desk for hours.
