Office Chairs For Commercial Offices
People who work in offices spend many hours at their desks, and it is important for them to have chairs that are comfortable and supportive. However, not all task chairs are created equal. Manufacturers offer many different types of chairs for office settings with a range of features and finishes.
The best office chairs have many controls that allow users to adjust the chair to fit their bodies, whether they are tall and have large frames or are more petite. No office chair should be one-size-fits-all. The height of the chair should be adjustable, as well as the tilt of the back and seat. Many chairs also feature lumbar support, which can sometimes be removed. Other chairs feature arms that can be adjusted and respond to the position of the body.
Most popular office chairs today feature mesh seats and backs because it is a very breathable fabric and reduces the overall weight of the chair, making it easier to maneuver. Mesh chairs are often available in a range of colors. Some feature padded seats and backs, while others are open for maximum breathability. If mesh is not the first choice, task seating can be upholstered in a range of fabrics and leather options, depending on the manufacturer.
Leading manufacturers of task seating include Herman Miller, Steelcase, Knoll, Humanscale, Haworth, Allsteel, SitOnIt, Dauphin, and Keilhauer. Contract magazine’s editors routinely scout out the best new office chairs at multiple trade shows each year and bring their first-hand findings to the pages of our issues and website.
