Best Office Chairs: The Filterable List (2021)

We hope you find this article useful. Just so you know, Buildremote may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page to help keep this site running.

Don’t do what I did. I’ve worked from home for a decade, but just recently prioritized my office chair. When I was 22, I sat in a recliner with my laptop on my lap. When I was 24, I sat in a plastic IKEA chair. At 25, I went wild and bought an office chair on Craigslist for $30. When I was 28, I sat in a dining room table chair. It’s only been in the last few years that I’ve prioritized my posture, back support, and health while working from home.

Now I have a nice and simple ergonomic office chair, a sit/stand desk, and a yoga ball so I can rotate positions.

But it took me rounds of research to find the right desk chair. Here’s why it’s so hard:

  • Too much: There are over 6,000 options on Amazon alone when you type in “office chairs.”
  • Not enough: Then, you have the “top 10” blog posts from Forbes and Business Insider… but they don’t know my needs or budget.

There’s no good, in-between tool for finding the perfect office chair. I created this filterable article to be the solution.

It’s the top 46 office chairs across the internet. Why 46? I have a list of 100+ remote work experts who I occasionally ask simple questions like, “What office chair do you have, and what do you like about it?” This post includes the chosen chair from everyone on that list and their personal take on it.

Reviews from Buildremote contributors:

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is amazing – it’s just incredibly well designed to provide great support that you can sit in for hours. The one big negative is the price tag, but I think of it like a mattress – I’m spending dozens of hours a week in it, so it’s worth the expense.
Alex Willen of Cooper’s Treats.

 

After investing in the Herman Miller Aeron chair, I’ve had a lot less strain in my back. It’s extremely comfortable, well made, and is worth every penny. I’m going to buy another one for my wife who works full-time from home now, too.
– Brad Johnson of Song Production Pros

 

The Herman Miller Chair provides optimal support not only for the back, but for all parts of my body. The only two pain points are the price and that it comes unassembled.
– Chrizelle So of Pain Free Working

 

“When I landed my first big client, I celebrated not with champagne or buying a new car, I invested in a Herman Miller Aeron.
The Herman Miller Aeron is pretty much the only office chair that’s famous in its own right.
-Amit Raj of The Links Guy

 

Simply the most ergonomic, fully adjustable, most comfortable, stylish, never-gets-hot chair I’ve ever used – I’ve had mine for 20 years.

I love this chair for a handful of reasons! Some days I’m sitting at my desk for numerous hours and the Gesture adapts to my every move. It provides long-lasting comfort and support for my body. The seat cushion has built in air pockets that conform to my body. The arms adjust through a full range of motion and continue to support me when I’m working with multiple devices and monitors. The contoured shape of the back helps to align my spine and it has an adjustable seat depth, fully adjustable arms, seat height adjustment, recline tension adjustment and a multiple position recline lock.
– Matthew Martinez of Diamond Real Estate Group

 

This office chair is a bit pricy but it’s totally worth it if you’re someone who likes to feel great and comfortable at the office. The fabric is 100% polyester which feels amazing on the body. The chair is also fully ergonomic and adjustable, so you can experiment with it until you find the right adjustment. The chair’s seat and back move in a synchronized way following your body to ensure all day comfort and body support.

I love this office chair because it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg while also not costing your back. I’m very comfortable in this chair about 8 hours working on my computer. You can’t beat the price and if you have Amazon Prime, it ships to you within 2 days.

– Nahyun Barbuto of Lifting Motherhood

 

I love that this is an ergonomic chair that fits perfectly in the back curve and waist so even if you sit for a long time, there is less chances of feeling any back pain, The rocking mechanism can also be achieved so it provides a relaxing way to sitting even while working. With adjustable height and removable arm rest, this chair is definitely customizable to fit your every need.

– Scott Hasting of Betworthy LLC

 

This seat, despite being in the affordable range, packs all the features that you need to adjust fast in an office setting starting with a butterfly-shaped lumbar that can move up or down by 5 centimeters to accommodate your back’s demands. Its armrests can flip vertically to get out of the way when not need. It also reclines up to 30 degrees; allowing you to stretch out whenever you feel like it.

Ergonomic Chair by Branch

Features:

  • Swivel
  • Recline
  • Height adjustable
  • Arm rests
  • Ergonomic
  • Back support
  • Padded seat
  • 7-year warranty

Reviews from Buildremote contributors:

This chair is packed with features. Its base is made from aluminum with a polished finish–most others are made with plastic. The back of the chair is made from a mesh material so it’s great to keep you cool all day long. What I really love about this chair is that you can  adjust everything to make yourself comfortable… from the depth of the seat, to the armrest and even to its back tail. And when you tilt back, the seat tilts a bit at the same time to ease the movement. There is also a plastic piece at the back which acts as lumbar support that is adjustable in height as well. I was truly impressed by the overall value of this chair given its price. Plus, it has a 7-year warranty. A great deal for an ergonomic chair.

-Emily Appelbaum of Family Destinations Guide

This chair has a special adjustable back support area, and feels great due to its ergonomic support. The chair also has thick padding on the seat, making it super comfortable to hang out in all day while working at the office.

Price: $1,695

Features:

  • Swivel
  • Recline
  • Height adjustable
  • Arm rests
  • Wheels
  • Ergonomic
  • Seat lock
  • Back support

Reviews from Buildremote contributors:

It’s an incredibly comfortable chair that completely solved any back pain issues I was having from sitting 12+ hours per day. Everything is perfectly adjustable other than the seat to backrest angle. The only complaint I can think of is that there is no headrest if you are over 5’7″; if you’re shorter, the backrest is high enough to work as a headrest.
– Scott Knowles of Hirebook

 

For over 4 years now, I’ve used the Herman & Miller Embody as my daily whip (so to speak). It fits my body type perfectly and allows for a firm yet comfortable position that I can use for hours. The armrests are critically underrated and the build quality lives up to the hype. Overall, it’s easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made and the best chair I’ve ever sat in.

– Fintan Costello of Bonus Finder

 

The quality of the chair is very good. The shape and build of their chairs are tailored to reduce strain, making it a great investment for people who sit for several hours a day. They engineered the tilt mechanism so the seat and backrest move together in one motion for more supportive reclining.

The Amia gives more expensive chairs like the Herman Aeron and Steelcase Leap a run for their money. As a shorter guy, I find that most office chairs were designed for bigger people. Between the adjustable arm rests, lumbar support and seat depth, the Amia fits my build and workspace perfectly.

– Brock McGoff of The Modest Man

 

The backrest on this chair mold to your back and moves as you do, offering consistent lumbar support. Plus, it looks great and is quite a few dollars less than similar chairs on the market.

This chair is extremely comfortable, even after I’ve spent 6 hours straight at my desk. The design of the back provides excellent support, crucial for me since I once had a fractured back. Unlike a number of other office chairs, the seat is very well padded. –

Here is a unique seat if you have a standing desk or shuffle your working time between standing and sitting. It is a hybrid between a seat and a stool with a height that can be adjusted by 10 inches. It has a wide, padded, comfortable seat. In place of a lumbar, there’s an articulating pedal that follows your back and guarantees your comfort.
