Of all the items of commercial furniture that a business buys, it is office chairs that require the most thought. You should certainly take time to choose desks, tables, and workstations, but it is office chairs that require the most consideration for one extremely important reason; office chairs will influence the comfort and well-being of those sitting in them the most.
If you take an office desk for example, whilst it will need to be functional, at the right height, and being good order, an employee working at a desk is not going to be in contact with it much, other than occasionally resting their elbows. However, that same employee could be sitting in their office chair for several hours each day, and so it must provide them with support, comfort, and ease of use throughout that time.
This is why those tasked with purchasing office chairs for a business must do so with due care and attention, plus they also need to have reasonable knowledge of the types of office chairs available and their numerous features. To that end, we have prepared a brief but essential guide to buying office chairs which we hope aids in making that choice.
