Steelcase's Leap and Gesture chairs seem to be highly recommended by people looking for a comfortable chair to use while working from home [5].

    Comfort is an essential factor when choosing an office chair. Many chairs provide good back support and are designed to prevent back pain from sitting 8 hours a day in the office [1]. Some chairs offer extra features like headrests, cushioned armrests, and lumbar support. The Herman Miller Mirra 2 is super comfortable [3], while the Nypot Premium Ergonomic Kneeling Chair is good enough [3].


    Most office chairs come with adjustable features such as seat height, armrests, backrest, lumbar support and tilt tension [4][5]. The Steelcase Leap / Gesture is highly adjustable, including lumbar support [1], while the Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody has a pixel-point adjustability feature [5].


    Office chairs are often covered in leather, fabric or mesh. Leather looks nice but wears down the fastest [5], while mesh is lightest and least likely for pets to want to sit on [5]. Fabric tends to be sturdy but can stain or collect odors over time [5]. The Cooler Master Caliber X1C has smooth and sturdy cloth upholstery [3], while the Secretlab Titan EVO 2022 has excellent build quality and materials [5].

    Weight Capacity

    Different office chairs have different weight capacities which can range from 300 pounds to 350 pounds depending on their size options. The Steelcase Leap / Gesture has a weight capacity of 300 pounds (standard seat width) or 340 pounds (extended seat width) [1], while the Amazon Gaming Chair can hold up to 350 pounds of weight capacity [3].


    Office chairs can range from low-cost options like Amazon Basics at under $100 dollars to luxury models like Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody at over $1000 dollars. The Lockland chair from Staples is best for trying in person as you can go to store and try it out before buying it [5], while Sitonit Novo was found for 325 with a friend's referral discount code[6].
