Big and Tall Office Chairs

Ergonomic chairs are supposed to be designed to fit the individual user. Some chairs are intended for the majority of people in the middle range; some chairs are intended for petite users. These chairs will not be comfortable -- or ergonomic -- for a big and tall user. A chair built for a larger user is not only more comfortable, but also safer. Many of these chairs are offered with a reinforced seat mechanism and wider base.

Most chairs are limited to a 250 lbs weight capacity and are recommended to users shorter than a certain height. If you're larger or taller than average, our in-house ergonomist suggests these Big and Tall Chairs for the best combination of comfort and quality.
