WFH: The Importance of Investing in a Good Office Chair

It’s fair to say the Covid pandemic sent the world to its room, to contemplate what we had done.

Away from the distractions of normality, the past year has been a time for contemplation: about life, the importance of friends and family and if the house needs renovating – you know, the important stuff.

We have certainly noticed the inadequacies of our living spaces like never before – particularly when it comes to working from home.

Owning a bad office chair can make you feel like you’re sitting in a cramped, economy seat flight on a long haul flight but, investing in a quality office chair upgrades you to first-class—they’re designed to support your body comfortably for the long haul. 

Aeron office chairs were once a status symbol. Some versions of the sleek, aerodynamic piece cost $1,000 and reveal the sitter to be important – promising, perfect posture with the engineered ’tilt mechanism’ – the seat and backrest move together in one motion for more supportive reclining.

Here are some of the best office chairs that will support you – while working from home – and look stylish, all at the same time.

Aeron Chair Remastered

Herman Miller improved one of the most iconic and beloved chairs using the co-designer Don Chadwick to reexamine the design criteria that led him and Bill Stumpf to the original in the context of today’s work and technology. With stronger, smarter materials, better adjustment capabilities, new finish options, and a healthier, more comfortable sit. Herman Miller didn’t recreate or redesign the Aeron Chair—they remastered it. Available to order and purchase in three sizes suited to different heights and weights – this chair moves with the body giving ultimate comfort and superb posture.

Eames Executive Chair

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames the Eames Executive Chair is generously sized and features a lightweight aluminium frame and base. With adjustable seat height, tilt-swivel mechanism and a five-star base add to the comfort, this finely detailed leather or fabric chair is accented with covered buttons and edge details typical of traditional fine furniture. This chair works well in a conference room, board room and would be a great addition to any home office.

Embody Work Chair

It’s said that the Embody Work Chair is built like ‘the human body’ – with a central spine and flexible ribs. The Backfit adjustment allows you to position the backrest in line with your spine’s natural curve, so you achieve a neutral, balanced posture. Once the chair is tuned to fit you, the backrest adapts to your movement, adjusting automatically to your shifting positions. With five different colours to choose from this is the perfect addition to your work space.

Eames Soft Pad Managment Chair

How does a chair designed in 1958 as outdoor seating still manage to look both classic and contemporary in twenty-first-century interiors? The Eames chairs’ clean, trim lines make them appropriate for all kinds of places, from classic and contemporary homes to elegant offices to hip start-ups. Sophisticated and refined, with a graceful silhouette. These Soft Pad chairs are available in a selection of colours, materials and bases that allow them to sit well in homes and offices – no matter what your style is.
