For this post, I have put together a collection of the best office chairs currently available.
UPDATED: September 26, 2019
A quality office chair needs to be comfortable even after sitting for long periods of time. Comfort is achieved by utilizing a range of adjustments to make sure your office chair is the perfect fit.
The following chairs use durable, long-lasting materials that will enable you to do your best work for years to come.
So here is my list of The 10 Best Office Chairs.
1. Herman Miller Aeron Executive Office Chair
If you want the best office chair on the planet, then look no further than the Aeron chair. The upfront investment will pay off in the form of increased productivity and comfort. Having personally used an Aeron for years, it is in a league all its own.
Aeron is the perfect marriage of performance and design.
Best-selling office chair still defines expectations for ergonomic comfort more than 20 years after its debut.

Breathable 8Z Pellicle suspension seat and back create eight zones of varying tension for optimal support.
An Ergonomic Workhorse
Aeron’s PostureFit SL technology affords the ideal sit — chest open, shoulders back, pelvis tilted slightly forward.
Adjustable pads provide lumbar support and stabilize the base of the spine for the perfect balance of ergonomics and comfort.
