If working from home has turned into a long-term or permanent situation, you’ve probably already reconfigured your workspace and gotten your desk organizers and tech gear squared away. But one of the most important elements to help you stay comfortable, focused, and productive for 8-plus hours a day, is your chair. If you haven’t upgraded your home office chair yet – or worse, you’re still slouched on your sofa or at the dining table – now is the time. Do your back and neck a favor and take a look at our top three picks.
Affordable & Comfortable
The AmazonBasics Padded Office Desk Chair offers adjustable seat height, a tilt back, and full 360-degree swivel. It doesn’t have adjustable lumbar support or armrests, but you can choose from black, brown, and white bonded leather upholstery that is comfortably padded – a plus when you’re stuck in your seat for yet another interminable video meeting. It’s currently priced at just under $70.
More Adjustable With a Mid-Tier Price Tag
The HON Ignition 2.0 chair is great for all day use, thanks to its wide range of available adjustments, including seat depth, tilt tension, tilt lock, seat height, and height-adjustable arms. This model also has supportive, adjustable lumbar support. The stretch mesh back and fabric upholstery on the seat make it breathable, and it comes in a variety of color combinations (although you’ll pay more for some options). The advanced synchro-tilt model in black starts at around $340.
The Steelcase Gesture is the Rolls Royce of office chairs. It’s completely adjustable (seat depth, tilt tension, recline depth, and seat height), with ball and socket-style armrests that can not only be raised and lowered, but can also be rotated and moved into almost any position. The ergonomic gods definitely give this chair their blessing, and such adjustability makes it easy to switch tasks throughout the day and quickly fine-tune the fit and function accordingly. It has a foam and fabric seat and back, comes in more than 70 fabric and six leather options, and includes a 12-year warranty. All this fanciness comes with a fairly steep price tag starting at $1,300.
