Whether you work from your house or simply need a place to handle bills and online banking, having an office in your home creates a convenient setting for getting things done. Finding the right desk sets the tone for style, but the most important piece of furniture in the room is the office chair – its job is to support you while you work.
Home office chairs are available in many shapes, sizes and colors. Choosing the right one will depend on how many hours a day you’ll use it, the kind of work you’ll be doing, and the amount of room you have around your desk.
For average use – occasional bill paying and Internet surfing – consider a high-backed model. With a contoured design, it will support the spine and reduce strain on your back and neck. Our Office Chair from the Memphis Collection offers adjustable height seating with a gas lift mechanism. On casters for easy mobility, its faux leather finish is available in ivory, brown and black.
If you’ll be spending a lot of time in your home office chair, consider an office chair that tilts, giving you a good range of motion while you’re seated. In black leather, our Cantebury Office Chair offers lumbar and headrest support, as well as the ability to adjust and lock height and tilt. It’s on dual wheel casters for smooth gliding.
You’ll also want a chair that offers mobility. All of the chairs carried at Art Van Furniture have casters on the base and swivel capabilities, allowing you to turn the seat at its base without rolling the entire chair. In top-grain leather, the Barolo Wood Trim Executive Office Chair offers a rich look as well as mobility features such as gas-lift adjustable height seating, knee tilt and a five star castered base.
Also consider the covering. Leather and faux leather are a good choice because they’re easy to maintain and you don’t have to worry about spills. Or chose a woven nylon that will stay cool in summer and warm in the winter. The Zeta Desk Chair is covered in a black embossed nylon with polyester butterfly mesh for comfort. The dark fabric complements the rich cherry wood finish.
Finally, consider the amount of room you have. Armless desk chairs offer more flexibility when fitting your home office into a tight spot. They allow you to push your chair further into the desk, giving you more floor space when not in use. The E2 Desk Chair is a handsome armless option with a leather seat and pads on the back to protect the chair and desk from damage. It has a gas-lift for height adjustment, knee-tilt, and five star castered base.
