Office Chairs

Task chairs are heavy duty office chairs designed to keep you comfortable for hours on end. Buying one may seem like a simple purchase, but everyone has a unique body shape, resulting in one chair does not fit all search. To find the right one for you, pay attention to the ergonomics of the chair and be sure it fits the contours of your body for maximum comfort.

What do I need to consider when picking out the right office chair?

Most likely, you occasionally work from home and you’ll be spending ample time in your chair. For that reason, it’s vital that it’s comfortable and ergonomically correct to your unique body. When testing chairs, look for the following:
Backrest: An inadequate backrest can put stress on your spine while you’re seated, so look for a chair that supports both your upper and lower back appropriately. The lower portion of the chair should also be slightly curved to follow the natural contour of your spine. Consider finding a chair with an adjustable backrest so you can be sure to fine-tune it to your comfort level.
Seat: The foam density in your seat should be high enough to keep you sitting comfortably for a full workday; be sure to test your chairs out to guarantee personal comfort. Analyze how your body fits into the seat: is there room around your hips and thighs? What about between the waterfall of the seat cushion and the back of your knee? Overall, does the seat feel adequately supportive? If not, you may want to continue shopping.
Armrests: Not all chairs come with armrests, nor do you necessarily need them if you feel they get in the way of pulling in closely to your desk. However, if you prefer them, seek out a chair that comes with adjustable padded rests at least two inches wide for maximum comfort. Be sure the armrests are placed correctly in proportion to your body: armrests that are too high can cause tension in your shoulders, while those spaced too widely will cause you to extend your elbows in an uncomfortable fashion.
Chair base: Look for chairs with casters or a five point base so you can move around your office workspace with stability and ease.
Height: Be sure you can adjust your chair so that your thighs are horizontal and feet flat on the floor when you’re sitting. This will minimize strain on your spine.

What type of material should I consider?

In general, leather or vinyl chairs prove to be the most durable and are comfortable, yet they may not let your skin breathe as easily as cloth. Cloth, however, while less expensive, is tougher to clean.

What styles are available?

A range of styles is offered; choose one depending on comfort, preference and whether it works with your current office décor. Traditional office chairs tend to be comfortable and oversized, often tufted and commonly made from leather. You can also find a chair without wheels, if that’s what you prefer. Modern chairs tend to be more sleek, innovative, functional and ergonomic, and will add a contemporary quality to your office as you work from home.

Chair Review: This chair is really nice with the cushion making it really comfortable for you to sit for a long period of time. The only thing that is making me from giving this chair a full five star rating is that there is no arm rest for the chair. Overall, it's a decent chair.

Great quality and easy to assemble: First of all I received this product one day and a half after I placed the order. Extremely fast delivery! When it came all the pieces were there, in separated boxes and bags that matched the instructions to put it together. Took 10-15 minutes for assembly. The white leather looks beautiful, its comfortable, and stylish. Moves on the wheels smoothly. I would absolutely recommend.

Great quality and true to picture!: Really great quality, arms and back just the right size, everything is true to the photo. My only thing is that the back is pretty straight and stiff. Wish the parts when put together were at an angle to make the chair more comfortable but very cool, modern and comfortable otherwise!

Great value: considering the quality and the price paid, this chair is a great value. The only drawback, and this is being very nit picky, is one of the arms is screwed in further than the other. I probably over tightened it during assembly. I doubt anyone would ever notice it. I’m planning to buy another for my office.

Cool chair: Love the swivel in the chair. Very comfortable. I asked about the color and thought it would be more grayish blue,I would explain it as greenish blue. Still goes with my decor though. Was super easy to put together.

Great bang for your buck!: Purchased many of these chairs for our new outpatient therapy clinic. The chairs are really a great price. They look more expensive than they actually are. They are easy to assemble. We will be purchasing even more in the near future.

Unbeatable quality with this price!: I am a designer and will look for different chairs from vendors. I have tried similar chairs from 5 different vendors, this chair seat with tilt angle is the most comfortable one, and the assembly is easier, another vendor took me double of time or more. Also, the stitching is more unite, looks more high quality.

Nice Occasional Chair: I bought this for a small space in a vacation rental and it is the right porportion for the space. The seat height is a little high for me, although I am 5'4" so taller people will appreciate it. It can be moved easily which is what I wanted. The low (ish) back lets you see past the chair, out the window, to the crashing waves in front of the beach house. My only complaint is that the leather was a little wrinkled right at the very back center of the chair. Otherwise it seems sturdy enough and I screwed the legs on easily.
