Things to Consider When Buying a New Office Chair
You’ve definitely heard of the word ergonomic, but it can be tough figuring out exactly what that means for your home office chairs. There’s a reason for that: Every chair feels a little bit different for every single person. There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re looking for a comfy chair that isn’t going to cause you any pain now or in the future.
- Look for something adjustable: The beauty here is that you have some literal wiggle room if something feels a bit off. Set yourself up for success by looking into options with an adjustable headrest, adjustable armrests, a seat height with a bit of range, etc.
- Pay close attention to where there is support: Some chairs have fuller seat cushions made of a high-density material and others offer a bit of recline. You know your body best, so take the time to figure out where your pain areas are and where you need an extra bit of support. In general, chairs with lumbar support are always a good place to start.
- Check the warranty and return policy: In general, furniture items shipped by Amazon (or are Prime eligible) are returnable for any reason within 30 days of receipt of shipment. This especially comes in handy when you’re buying a desk chair sight-unseen. (Some items that aren’t shipped by Amazon may be subject to the vendor’s own return policy, so be sure to read the fine print.) If you’re worried about durability, most vendors offer free warranties – meaning they’ll replace your chair if it falls apart—even several years after your purchase.
The plushest option of our office chair picks, this padded model is armless and extra wide — ideal for those who like to cross their legs while working. The chair is available with or without wheels, though you can take an extra $12 off the wheel-less model at checkout when you check the on-page coupon.
Flexispot’s OC3B is one of our favorite desk chairs sold on Amazon. According to Clever tester Terri Williams, it’s the “best of both worlds” when it comes to comfort and price point. “The entire chair (back, seat, headrest) is made of breathable mesh, which contributes to air circulation,” she writes, and it has “several adjustment points, and even includes a clothes hanger on the back to keep a jacket or throw blanket close by.” Plus, it’s just plain comfortable. Now through Prime Day, you can take an extra $30 off the sale price when you check the on-page coupon.
As it turns out, Serta also makes office furniture. This fuzzy, height adjustable faux-fur chair has memory foam padding in the seat and arms, and a wheeled base with 360-degree casters. “It doesn’t rock, so it helps me so much from slouching,” one reviewer writes, while another commends its “great back support.” If you’re not one for faux fur, the gray suede option is also available, though without the Prime Day office chair deals running.
It’s not your mother’s desk chair, but it does look like something you’d find in a Lower East Side art gallery. (“Take a break from the serious seating,” the product description urges.) The tractor-inspired seat is made from ergonomically molded plastic, and it’s set atop an adjustable chrome base that’ll last for years to come. Colorways range from yellow to violet to apple green, but we’re partial to the orange, which just so happens to be 31% off.
The saddle stitching on this faux-leather task chair — along with the matte black base — make it look much more expensive than it actually is. The armless design will slide under any size desk, and it’s attractive enough to double as a side chair. And because there isn’t a headrest or pair of arms to attach, assembly shouldn’t take more than ten minutes.
If you haven’t yet scored a vintage Breuer model, here’s a cane-back office chair in the same mid-century style. The seat is topped with a tufted, faux-leather cushion, which one reviewer describes as “thick,” “not too shiny,” and “luxurious.” (And unlike genuine leather, it’ll be easy to keep clean.) Amazon isn’t offering the biggest discount, but it is $10 off at checkout when you click the on-page coupon.
If you really want to get back to basics, here’s an option from the retailer itself—that just may be the most-reviewed office chair on the site. The two-inch-thick seat cushion will provide ample support, and the contoured mesh back will bend to your weight, unlike rigid models made from leather or upholstery. (If you’re not yet persuaded, you could always read some of the nearly 14,000 five-star reviews.)
You probably haven’t thought too much about how convenient a pair of flip-up armrests can be…but you will after sitting in this chair for a day. The ergonomic Mimoglad office chair encourages healthy spinal posture in both the back’s design and its ability to recline, lessening pressure on the body. It’s also an extra $40 off at checkout when you select the on-page coupon.
For those who want comfort but find themselves on a tight budget, here’s a supportive, under-$75 option that’ll arrive in just two days. A breathable mesh design means you won’t get sweaty while plowing through spreadsheets, and the 15-minute assembly process isn’t bad either.
