An office chair is an important piece of the home office. Not only do you spend long hours sitting, an office chair can be a sign of prestige and accomplishment. A high-end office chair can be the focal point of your home office.
We have reviewed the best high-end, high-quality, and expensive office chairs on the market. See below for our favorite options.
What to consider before buying a white office chair?
When buying a white chair for your home office you need to first think about the comfortability of the chair. Secondly, you need to consider the general aesthetic of the chair in your work environment. Lastly, you need to consider the functionality of the chair relative to your body and work needs.
Let’s talk about comfortability first
Before thinking about the color of your chair, think about how it will feel to use? If you are working 6-10 hours a day in your chair, there is a good chance you will care how the chair feels on your back, hips, and backside. A good chair has built-in attributes that will make you feel better. We should certainly know! Having reviewed and tested hundreds of chairs, we know the basic and most important variables one should consider in regards to comfort. So what should you be mindful of? First, a chair needs to fit you and your body. Some chairs, for example, have weight constraints. Others have small or elongated backs. Some have head and neck support built in. Think about your body – are you tall? Large? Small? These types of general framing questions will help you identify the general size of the chair. The next variable to think about – irrespective of color – is how the chair will give you lumbar support while you are working.
Lumbar support: worth its weight in gold
A chair is designed to be used for sitting. But if you sit for too long you can develop neck and back pain. An ergonomic chair can help you lean forwards or backwards, sit upright, enhance your posture, and take pressure off your joints. Adjustability, as we have written, is the name of the game. Your body is unique and you will want your chair to reflect that in its built-in features.
White is elegant
A white chair looks great in many different home offices. Once you have selected the chair for comfort and functionality, you can think about it in the context of aesthetic. If your home office has poor lighting and is dark, a white chair can bring a needed contract. If your home office is lighter, a white chair adds a nice complimentary color. White looks great with glass, wood, and metal desks and will enable your complexion to pop during video calls. White is a classy furniture color that is both functional and appealing to many people.
Features to look for in a white chair
In addition to the ergonomic features that are important to evaluate for your body, white chairs come in many flavors of color shades and material. For example, some home office white chairs are leather. Others have a breathable mesh back, usually made of fabric. These types of material will impact the brightness of the white shade and even the maintenance. A mesh back white chair might become slightly darker with prolonged use. A white leather chair, in contrast, will remain its original color for a longer period of time.
Some white chairs are fully white: their arms, base, and core material are all white. Other chairs we have reviewed are both white and grey or white and black. If you value a home office chair that is a solid color, you should select a chair that is monochrome.
Warranty and Cleaning
White chairs require maintenance, especially if you want to keep them clean over time. Consider this and the warranty when buying your next white chair.
Are expensive office chairs worth it?
If you are sitting in front of a computer all day in a chair, an expensive chair can pay for itself in added productivity, the ability to work longer hours, and improved quality of life. Many chairs are expensive because of better ergonomic design, so they can be worth it in terms of improved health and well-being. That being said, exercise balls are ergonomic and only cost $20. The most expensive office chairs also offer exceptional design and a level of prestige that many executives require.
Why are office chairs so expensive?
Chairs are expensive because they are are made of high quality materials (such as sturdy metal or plastic and leather), are designed to last years, and have undergone years of research and development. A high-quality office chair is often the most expensive purchase for a home office but is one of the most used items.
What is the most expensive office chair?
