Comfort and Ergonomics Overview

First, let’s talk about comfort. The initial reaction we had when sitting in the Verona was a long sigh of relief, like sipping a cold lemonade in a hot July summer day. The Verona excels in the comfort area and has a lot of features to back it up. For starters, the Serta Smart Layers Verona Office Chair boasts a premium 5 Layer Cushioning System that is designed to hug and contour to every joint in your rump and back. Plus, the seat is fitted with individually foam wrapped ComfortCoils™ that are designed to relieve pressure in the areas where you need it the most. Hands down, the Serta Verona comes highly equipped with an arsenal of comfort features that will make you excited to sit in this chair time and time again.

Next, let’s talk about Ergonomics.

The Verona gives us a few surprises when it comes to this category. It’s one of the only Serta office chairs out there that comes with adjustable armrests. Additionally, we found the adjustability features on this Serta office chair to be a bit more robust than its counterparts like the Arlington Executive or the Health and Wellness. That definitely says something.

The Verona also comes fitted with built-in lumbar support and an integrated headrest. Those two features combined with the overall ergonomic and high back design of the chair make it quite the stand-out office chair. The one place where we think this chair lacks is style.

While we’re in that area…

Verona Style and Materials

Office Chair

We will be blunt: The Serta Smart Layers Verona Office Chair doesn’t knock it out of the park with it comes to style. There are definitely more stylish, contemporary and chic chairs out there. However, if you’re shopping with comfort, support and ergonomics at the top of your “must have” list, then you should start your search with Serta or Lazy Boy Office Chairs. The latter choice offers some enhanced ergonomic features and a better taste in style, but La-Z-Boy Office Chairs also come with a higher price tag. Anyway, the point we are trying to make with the Verona is this: It’s not that stylish, but it is ultra-mega comfortable and supportive.

The back and seat of the chair are fitted with premium bonded leather. The Leather is smooth to the touch, crack resistant and is low maintenance compared to genuine leather. The frame of the chair is composed mainly of a strong polymer plastic. Although it has a solid frame, the plastic takes away from the overall “style points” of the Serta Smart Layers Verona.

Specs and Dimensions

This section is often overlooked. Coincidently, it’s one of the most important areas to consider when purchasing an office chair. Nothing is worse than finally ordering the office chair you love only to find out that it doesn’t quite fit in your work station setup. We recommend all of our readers to take a few simple measurements to prevent the aforementioned situation. In this section, we will tell you all the important specs you’ll need to know about the Serta Smart Layers Verona Office Chair.

Office Chair

  • Depth: 27.75 in
  • Width: 26.25 in
  • Height (adjustable): 37.5 – 40.5 in
  • Weight Capacity: 250 lbs

Lifetime Value and Warranty

A big plus to this chair is that it’s made from a common household brand name. Serta is a trustworthy brand and we firmly believe that this product will stand the test of time. Plus, it’s made from long-lasting and durable materials. Rest assured that you’ll be able to contact a full staff of customer care representatives. Reason being is because Serta has been around for over 70 years and likely isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As for the warranty – we believe this particular product has one, however we are still doing some research on what exactly the specs are.

Overall Thoughts on the Serta Smart Layers Verona Office Chair

Overall, we give the Serta Smart Layers Verona Manager Chair two thumbs up. It has several comfort components coupled with an ergonomic design that makes for one heck of a sitting experience. Plus, it’s highly adjustable and is made by a trusted and established furniture manufacturer.

One fallback it has is style. If you can get over the somewhat odd color (our opinion), this chair is absolutely a huge value buy. Aside from that one small tidbit, it was hard to find things to not like about the Verona. To wrap it up, here is a high level pro/con overview of our thoughts on the chair in question:


  • Premium 5 Layer Cushioning System
  • Fitted with individually foam wrapped ComfortCoils™
  • High back design with integrated headrest
  • Advanced adjustability including tilt, height and armrests
  • Product available in a few different colors
  • Manufactured by an established and trusted brand


  • In our opinion, the style isn’t all that great
  • Weight capacity may not encompass everybody
  • Some assembly may be required
