Looking for a quality ergonomic chair, but don't want to mortgage your house to get one? While the saying "You get what you pay for" holds some merit when it comes to seating, that is not always the case. There are certain features you should look for that will meet the criteria of a good chair, such as adjustability, comfort of upholstery, warranty, and the quality of the materials used in production. Can you get a chair for under $300? Certainly, as long as you plan on buying a new one every couple years, because, well, they are only meant to last that long. Instead, you could pay just a little more and get chairs that will be built to last. Here are some great suggestions that won't break the bank and will last for years to come.
1. The Raynor Nuvo Mesh Chair - Raynor is known for their popular Ergohuman series, and the Nuvo offers many of the same adjustments at a more budget friendly price. The mesh is soft and breathable, and the seat features a waterfall seat edge to relieve pressure on the back of the legs. And it includes all the great features you would find in top notch ergonomic chairs: Seat slider, adjustable arms, tilt tension, and lumbar support that adjusts to the spine's natural curvature.
2. Via Riva Ergonomic Task Chair - The Via Riva has a great limited lifetime warranty that will ensure that it will last. What's great about this chair is that you can customize it to fit your body by choosing from a myriad of options for the arms, seat and back sizes, as well as numerous mechanism adjustments. If you don't mind spending a little extra, you can also opt for a leather finish.
3. ergoCentric geoCentric Task Chair - The geoCentric is another highly customizable option, and you can get a great chair for a reasonable price if you choose a standard configuration. I really like the geoCentric headrest because it engages your head without having to lean as far back as with other chairs. If you plan on sitting for long periods of time, I would suggest upgrading to a triple density foam for added comfort. The geoCentric has a lifetime warranty on most parts as well as a 10 year warranty on some of their fabric options.
There you have it, 3 great options for under $500. If you do not mind spending a little extra, one of our most popular selling chairs is the Steelcase Amia. This is an extremely high-end chair that comes standard with an adjustable lumbar support, and is one our long-standing customer favorites. The arms are fully adjustable, and can slide in closer to your body if needed, and there are many different finishes and fabrics available.
