Office Chairs: A good ergonomic office chair will typically fall within the price range of $250 to $1,000 depending upon how adjustable you want the chair to be. Having a chair with multiple adjustments is essential, particularly if you will be sharing the chair with other people, to ensure it fits to your body. A chair that is too big or too small for its user can lead to serious health issues including chronic back and neck pain. Owning a chair that fits the user correctly is especially crucial if you or your employees spend multiple consecutive hours a day sitting on an office chair. Most chairs within this price range, especially those on the higher end, will last 5 years or more dependent on how well you take care of the chair. Manufacturers of quality product will also warrant their chairs to last up to a lifetime, meaning if any part on your chair breaks, (mechanism, casters, adjustment levers, etc.) they will replace it free of cost up to the time specified in their warranty. A warranty usually says a lot about a manufacturer, so if you find one with a longer warranty this is a good guarantee that your chair investment will be worthwhile, as it shows the manufacturer is that confident with their product.
The first step towards finding your ultimate ergonomic office chair is to figure out the dimensions needed to accommodate your body size. First, determine the seat depth(length of the seat) that will be required for your new chair. This is a crucial step because a chair that is too long will put pressure on the back of your knees and a chair that is too short may not fully support your legs. A good way to determine your ideal seat depth is to turn towards your current office chair; if your current seat depth already works for you then make sure your new chair will have the same seat measurements. If it is too long, look for a chair with a smaller seat depth and vice versa if your chair's seat is too short. If you prefer a softer sit while working look for a chair that offers seat foam upgrades such as a gel seat or triple density foam otherwise some chairs come standard with an extra thick seat.
The materials the chair is made up is another important factor. Leather is the most common option for high-end executive chairs. Leather is both comfortable and elegant. The comfort comes from the temperature which leather maintains. It stays cool and does not get too hot to sit in for long periods of time. But, in cooler climates, leather does warm up to one's body temperature and does not stay too cool. While there are plenty of good models of cloth executive office chairs, they will all be considered second best to the leather models. In addition, one of the considerations of having a really nice office chair is to give off an impression of power. Leather often does this, because of the inherent cost.
