If you work through the typical 9-5 grind, your office chair evokes a much stronger physical and emotional attachment than almost any other piece of furniture. Having one of the best office chairs isn’t just a choice, it’s essential for comfort and productivity at work.
Some office dwellers even spend more time in their chair at work than their own bed at home. Those long, dragging days in the office are only made worse with an uncomfortable and impractical sitting environment, only furthering the importance of functionality over exquisiteness.
There are also health benefits that come along with having ergonomic chairs in the workplace, such as promoting good posture, reducing the risk of back and neck problems, and most importantly, making work that much easier to get through.
According to Humantec, an ergonomics consulting firm, an ideal fitting chair has adjustable lumbar support and your feet are planted on the floor with your thighs parallel to the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle. They also advise looking into chairs that feature seat-pan depth adjustments, which will only further support and comfort.
Without further adieu, let’s delve into some of the best office chair options out there, whether it be on sale, cost-effective, or costly–no holds barred here when it comes to price.
Because, after all, at the end of the day, can you really put a price on spinal comfort?
