So, you’ve spent weeks researching and picking out an office desk you absolutely love — but what about the perfect office chair? With more and more people working from home, it’s not uncommon to rack up 40+ hours a week sitting at your desk working away on the computer — so you definitely want a comfortable, ergonomic chair that supports good posture.
Our RealRooms office chairs offer just the right blend of style, comfort, and adjustability. They’re made with linen and faux leather upholstery, sturdy metal base designs with caster wheels, and gas lift mechanisms that let you easily adjust your height to fit any desk or table. Did we mention how good they look? Our versatile styles pair perfectly with modern industrial desks, and they can also add a nice contrast to rustic wood surfaces.
So what should you be looking for in terms of size and feel? There’s no magic answer — ultimately, whatever feels right for your body is the best option. But we suggest choosing an office chair that allows you to keep your feet on the floor with your knees below your hip level. There should also be a bit of room between the back of your knee and the edge of the seat.
Floor tip: depending on whether you have carpet or hardwood, you may want to add a chair mat to your office to protect your floor from scratches (and to make it easier to roll your seat into place). But before you default to a generic transparent mat, consider the opportunity to add a little visual flare to your workstation. Chair mats come in all kinds of vibrant designs and patterns, and they can work great as affordable accent pieces in lieu of a cute rug.
