The Wonderful World of Office Chairs

Office Chairs

With thousands of ergonomic seating solutions available to choose from in 2015, it hard to select the perfect model for your personal needs. That being said, in today's post we'll highlight everything you need to know about the world of office chairs to help you achieve ultimate comfort in the workplace.

Style

When it comes to office chairs there are plenty of style to choose from. Basic style identifiers include modern, traditional, leather, mesh, and fabric. You'll also want to shop for new office chairs based on what application they are designed for. Office tasking chairs are great for both professional and home office computing applications. Executive chairs are typically used by upper management and feature luxurious leather upholsteries and high end features. Big and Tall chairs are heavy duty and support users from 350 to 500 pounds. Before selecting your new chair, take the time to research the various styles and determine which will best suit your needs and work environment.

That being said, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with a list of industry leading office chair manufacturers you can trust!

Ergonomics

The word "ergonomic" is probably heard on a daily basis in just about every office on the planet. Office ergonomics is the search and application of products to better our functionality, comfort, and efficiency. Ergonomics can be used to describe a variety of workplace elements, but are most commonly applied to seating. While not all ergonomic chairs are created equal, most on the market today will have some form of ergo feature designed to improve your work day. Features like adjustable arms, lumbar support, syncro tilt mechanisms, and headrests are all incorporated into chairs to hep you get through those long days at the office. While all of the ergonomic bells and whistles are nice, it's best to work with your dealer of choice to hone in on the key features that will work best for your particular needs an body type. This will help you maximize comfort and avoid overspending on features you don't really need. 


Upholsteries

While we touched on upholsteries quickly in the style section of today's post, they certainly deserve a bit more attention! The upholstery used on your office chair will play a key role in determining the life and longevity of your chair. Seating upholstery is graded based on the amount of double rubs (abrasions) it can withstand. The higher the grade, the more durable the upholstery. That being said, some fabrics can actually be more durable than leathers and vice versa. When selecting your office chair, be sure to inquire with your dealer about what fabric upholstery grade the chairs you're considering are crafted with.

Shopping

When shopping for office chairs for the home or business, you'll certainly be looking to maximize your budget. Start your search online and look for popular office chairs with good reviews. Once you've narrowed down your search to a few chairs, visit a comparison shopping engine online and search out your favs. Google Shopping, BizRate, Shopzilla, Amazon, and Bing are all top choices. But like with most things, Google reigns supreme. Their shopping engine offers more office chairs than any other and is very user friendly. Here you will be able to sort your favorite chairs by dealer and price while also seeing coupons, free shipping specials, and promotions that will help you save. If your purchasing multiple office chairs of your business, contact your dealer of choice to inquire about bulk discount pricing. This is an excellent way to save and is typically far more budget beneficial than your average coupon. Newsletter sign ups and online coupon sites tjoos.com and retailmenot.com are also great ways to keep a little extra money in the wallet when chair shopping!
