Choosing a good office chair is important if you sit in it for hours a day. Buying poor quality will backfire: uncomfortable workers are less productive and are absent from work more frequently. The chairs below have been selected for quality of workmanship as well as comfort.
All chairs fit people differently. Since lower cost chairs are often less adjustable than more expensive counterparts, care should be exercised to ensure a chair is the right size for the person who uses it. Differences such as chair arms, lumbar support and the shape of the seat are important to consider. It is less important if the chair is used infrequently in places like a conference room or home office; it also makes a difference for someone who is up and down all day. Below you will find some of our favorite budget office chairs.
