It may be officially safe to say that so many more folks are working from home for much longer than initially intended. With this in mind, these people are more consciously trying to find ways to make their workspaces more productive and, above, all more comfortable.

One of the easiest ways to achieve this is with the perfect chair that best suits your needs and setup.

Whether you use an electric sit-stand desk or a smaller, more compact writing desk, the right office chair can completely change both your productivity levels throughout the day and your overall comfort.

Currently, there are hundreds of office chairs on the market, making it almost impossible for the casual shopper to find the right one. Also, sometimes you may not know which one’s right for you unless you have a visual in front of you.

Find a more detailed perspective of each chair below, complete with a defining customer review.

It has just enough support and height, and I love that even with the arms down, as I’m typing, they don’t touch my arms. So, when I’m in work mode, I’m free, and when I want to lean back and think about what I’ve composed, I can do so comfortably.”

2. Best Under-$150 Option: Oren Ellis Renda Mid-Back Ribbed Conference Chair, $108.99

“This mid-back chair was just perfect for my home office. The color was true to the photo, and it looks great. Easy for me to put together in a short period of time. The back is the perfect height for support when leaning back.”

3. Most Affordable: Furmax Ergonomic Mesh Chair With Lumbar Support, $49.99

“This chair by Furmax gets a 5/5 in every category. It took me just about 25 minutes to assemble. I’d say this chair takes 15 minutes tops to assemble when done precisely and correctly. The moment I sat in it, I was instantly relieved of any doubt of speculation that it wouldn’t be of long-term use for me.”

4. Best Ergonomic Option: Vari Task Chair With Headrest, $325

"Boasting features of a $1,500 office chair at a $300 price with fantastic customer service. I had to upgrade my home office given the COVID-19 situation. My work office has an ergonomic chair with a $2,000 price tag. I bought this and found it to be better."

“This chair looks good, and it’s comfortable. I also like that it raises up and down. I needed one that had height to work with the console I purchased to use as a writing desk. I recommend if you’re looking for an on-trend piece.”
