How we chose

Calling in a dozen of the best Amazon office chairs isn't practical, so instead I scanned Amazon office chair search results and picked out products that were rated a minimum of four stars. I also sifted through reviews to see what shoppers thought of their purchase.

What to consider before buying an Amazon office chair

Ergonomic, executive, task, and stackable styles: If you live with back pain, an executive chair's height and padding will give you great support. However, we'd suggest an ergonomic option if sitting for long periods. These fit the curve of your lower back, relieving pressure and pain. But if support isn't a priority, a standard swivel chair with caster wheels should suffice.

Adjustability: Almost every chair on this list has height and arm adjustment, which should be at the top of your checklist. Picking customizable functions for your chair and work desk will make all the difference in your posture. And, if more than one person is planning on using the chair, this feature is essential. 

Material: This mainly comes down to whether it fits with your home aesthetic. However, the type of outer textile and fill material can impact comfort. 

Size and weight: Typically, most people want a lightweight chair with collapsible armrests for ease. But some people might prefer a sturdier seat.

Shipping costs: Not everything gets delivered for free at Amazon, so check expected dispatch costs and lead times before you buy.


Is it worth getting an expensive desk chair?

Some of the most successful people own expensive Amazon office chairs. Take for example, former president, Barack Obama, to the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, to the NASA control room all use the Humanscale Freedom Task Chair with Headrest (currently unavailable on Amazon, but available to buy directly).

According to the brand: "it eliminates levers, dials, and other mechanisms to provide physics-driven, ergonomic support that’s as simple as it is elegant. Its headrest also moves with you, seamlessly supporting the head and neck in any posture – no manual adjustment required."

At $1,423.20 it is expensive, but for a cheaper alternative, the World One Ergonomic Desk Chair from HumanScale (currently under $490 on Amazon) has many of the same features.
