1. Best Overall: Hbada Office Swivel Desk Chair With Flip-Up Arms And Adjustable Height, $149.99 (Orig. $169.99)

Credit: Amazon

Over 6,000 five-star reviews

Top 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. Top Under-$100 Option: Mid-back Pu Leather Exerutive Conference Home Office Chair, $93.99 (Orig. $103.99)

4.6 out of 5 five stars

Top Review:

“Chair arrived quickly — quicker than anticipated. No issues with assembly. Item is as pictured. We were looking for an inexpensive, basic office chair for occasional use, so we got what we were looking for.”

3. Most Affordable: Furmax Ergonomic Mesh Chair With Lumbar Support, From $55.99

Credit: Amazon

Over 15,000 five-star reviews

Top Review:

“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, $350

No tool assembly required

Top Review:

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.”

5. Most Adjustable Option: FlexiSpot Soutien Ergonomic Office Chair, $269.99 (Orig. $299.99)
