On top of that, there are thousands of office chairs out there making it difficult for consumers to be confident in choosing the right one.
There are leather chairs, mesh chairs, and computer chairs of all different shapes, sizes and colors. They all have different features too.

Meet the Editor: Ben Walsh
As an IT pro and former consultant, I’ve spent more time than I care to remember sitting in uncomfortable office chairs.
Hunched over my keyboard for countless hours, I’ve experienced the nagging aches and pains that come with poor posture, flimsy chair support, and awkward desk setups.
Thankfully, I’ve also learned there’s no need to suffer through the day.
Whether you’re working at home (like me) or in a traditional corporate office environment – and whether you like to sit or stand during the day – there are tons of comfortable, stylish, supportive and even healthy options out there.
To keep this site fresh and helpful, I try to keep current with the latest in ergonomic design and chair technology.
Hopefully, the content on this site will help you find a chair and office setup that gets you excited to tackle the workday.
