Sitting feels great after a long day on your feet, but not so great if you have to do it all day. Those of you who spend most of their time at a desk know exactly what I mean. You also then know that choosing an office chair is very important. You’re going to be spending a substantial amount of time sitting in one, so you want to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. Not sure which chair is best for you? I’ve rounded up some of the best chairs available now.
If we’re making some suggestions
Any of the chairs from this roundup should prove to be a worthwhile addition to your home or work office, but you might still be wondering which one to zero in on. If you’re looking to save some money, IKEA’s Markus is a stellar pick used by a few people at Windows Central, and it costs about $200. It has a high back with a padded headrest, the mesh back provides ample lumbar support and keeps air moving freely, and the armrests can be removed if that’s your style. A lockable tilt function and pneumatic lift mean you can get the right angle and height for your desk, and there’s thick padding on the seat to keep your rear and legs comfy.
If you have a bigger budget, you really can’t go wrong with the Steelcase Leap V2. It’s also used by a few members of staff, and it’s said to have a high amount of possible adjustments that can each be felt. The seat reclines in two parts, with the back portion tilting and seat sliding out, which helps keep the contour of your spine in a natural position even when getting comfortable. Armrests are adjustable and there’s ample padding on the seat and back, and you can adjust firmness with a dial on the side of the chair. Don’t want to spend quite as much as this roundup demands?
