1. Best Overall: Hbada Office Swivel Desk Chair With Flip-Up Arms And Adjustable Height, $129.99 (Orig. $169.99)
Over 6,000 five-star reviews
“It has just enough support and height, and I love that even with the arms down, as I’m typing, they don’t touch my arms. So, when I’m in work mode, I’m free, and when I want to lean back and think about what I’ve composed, I can do so comfortably.”
2. Best Under-$150 Option: Oren Ellis Renda Mid-Back Ribbed Conference Chair, $108.99
Over 1,000 five-star reviews
“This mid-back chair was just perfect for my home office. The color was true to the photo, and it looks great. Easy for me to put together in a short period of time. The back is the perfect height for support when leaning back.”
3. Most Affordable: Furmax Ergonomic Mesh Chair With Lumbar Support, $49.99
Over 15,000 five-star reviews
“This chair by Furmax gets a 5/5 in every category. It took me just about 25 minutes to assemble. I’d say this chair takes 15 minutes tops to assemble when done precisely and correctly. The moment I sat in it, I was instantly relieved of any doubt of speculation that it wouldn’t be of long-term use for me.”
4. Best Ergonomic Option: Vari Task Chair With Headrest, $325
No tool-assembly required
"Boasting features of a $1,500 office chair at a $300 price with fantastic customer service. I had to upgrade my home office given the COVID-19 situation. My work office has an ergonomic chair with a $2,000 price tag. I bought this and found it to be better."
5. Best Adjustable Option: FlexiSpot Soutien Ergonomic Office Chair, $259.99
Newly released — over 100 five-star reviews
6. Best For Back Pain: SmugDesk Ergonomic Mesh Computer Chair With Adjustable Headrest And Armrests, $189.99

“I am able to work from home sometimes not getting out of this chair for more than six hours because it truly is that supportive and comfortable for me and the extreme chronic back problems that I have.”
7. Best Glam Option: Wade Logan Inez Velvet Task Chair, $91.99
Over 2,000 five-star reviews
“This chair looks good, and it’s comfortable. I also like that it raises up and down. I needed one that had height to work with the console I purchased to use as a writing desk. I recommend if you’re looking for an on-trend piece.”
8. Best Big And Tall Option: Steelcase Leap Plus Desk Chair With 500lb Weight Capacity, $1,517
“Worth every penny. Sturdy. I didn’t feel like I was falling out of the chair or it was falling out from under me. Great adjustability.”
