Office Chairs - What's on offer?
We review the principal six types:
There is a surprisingly large range of office chairs on the market, and choosing the right one for your office is not necessarily a simple process. To help you make the right decision, the principal six types are summarized below.
If style is your main priority, you may want to go for one of the many designer chairs. There really are no rules governing the design of this type of chair, all manner of shapes, sizes, colors and fabrics can be found. But the only thing that is certain is that they will probably make a bigger dent in your wallet than one of the more straight forward designs. See www.laporta.co.uk
Industrial chairs are basically the complete opposite of designer chairs! Designed to be robust, hygienic and cost effective these are not for you if you want o make a spectacular first impression with customers. Most of them do, however, come with changeable height, tilt and fully rotational seats, while offering excellent value for money too.
Ergonomic chairs are designed specifically to fit to the body shape of whoever happens to be sitting in them. This is probably the most popular chair design of the moment as it provides value, style, and most importantly, comfort. See www.hermanmiller.com
This latest innovation takes the principals of the ergonomic chair one step further with a unique dynamic and adjustable lumber support. This design provides extra support for anyone with back problems and a byproduct of the chair’s support technology is a very quirky design.
Executive chairs ooze class and style. Often available in many widths and heights and made in luxurious materials, most classically of course leather, these chairs do not come cheap. However making an investment in a chair of this nature is a decision that very few people live to regret. See www.247workspace.com
