For a radically different drafting chair experience, the Seating Inc. Monterey 400 24/7 Big and Tall Drafting Chair delivers more comfort for big and tall users everywhere.

The Monterey 400 Drafting Chair by Seating Inc. offers a supportive taller height seating solution for larger than average sitters, as well as those who need a tall chair for 24/7 all-day use. The Monterey 400 blends elegant style with heavy-duty construction, featuring energy-absorbing foam cushions that make for one exceptionally comfortable chair. The Monterey 400 Drafting Chair also comes with a sculpted and stitched mid back, optional Schukra lumbar support, multiple arm choices, and a collection of upholstery options.

The Monterey 400 24/7 Big and Tall Drafting Chair includes the same luxurious styling options as the Monterey 275, Monterey 350, and Monterey 550 task and executive chairs with the addition of your choice of two taller height ranges and a functional foot ring. Decorative top-stitching and a fully upholstered back make this a stylish addition to the modern office space. The thickly padded, energy-absorbing foam seat reduces pressure on your hips and back, letting you work for longer durations without poor posture or circulation to slow your workflow.

The mechanism determines how your chair moves and what adjustment capabilities it will have. For maximum adjustability, we recommend the Multi-function tilt.

The Quick Set Back Mechanism has a vertical travel of 2.625'' with seven locking positions. The articulating back angle adjustment offers a 15° range. This is a great mechanism for multiple users.

The optional Schukra lumbar support is vastly different from most chair lumbar supports. It gives each vertebral disk in the lumbar region support and relief and relaxes the back muscles. The hand wheel allows for infinite personalization of support.

    Most Comfortable Drafting Chair

    Posted by A.Taylor on Sep 23rd 2010

    Within the past 2 years, I have gone through 2 drafting chairs. The Human Solution chair is my third. However, it is such better quality and comfort, I don't think I'll have to worry about getting another chair for a long time!

This product comes standard with a 15-year limited warranty.
