There are three main types of office chairs on the market: task chairs, mid-back chairs, and executive office chairs. Task chairs are small, simple and often armless. Mid-back chairs are larger, have arms, and offer more back support. Executive chairs are the highest quality and provide full back support.

The Aeron by Herman Miller is considered by most to be the cadillac of the office chair world. Highly innovative, the chair utilizes a woven suspension membrane that eliminates pressure points by distributing weight evenly. The seat has a “waterfall” edge which  takes the pressure off the back of your thighs. Plus, the chair comes with a 12-year warranty.

Good ergonomics are not inherently expensive, and expensive does not necessarily guarantee good ergonomics. The basic principles that have guided chair design for the past several decades have to some extent trickled down to the lesser chairs of the world. You could find a chair that makes good ergonomic sense for you at the office-supply store down the street, but it is less likely, and many big-box-store chairs have limited adjustability. All of the experts we talked to at length agreed that, for people who can afford it, investing in a high-end office chair is a better bet. As Alan Hedge of Cornell told us, “There’s the old saying ‘You get what you pay for.’ That’s very true in chairs.”

The Boss Task Seat is a good Budget option. With a relatively small seat and backrest, this chair is perfect for cramped spaces.

Still, it has maintained a 4.2 out of 5 stars after over 200 reviews.

Rani Lueder recommends testing out a new chair for at least 30 minutes, in the type of setting you’d be using it in at home or in the office. That last part is crucial. Ideally, you’ll want to bring your laptop to Design Within Reach or some other dealer, zero in on a few contenders, pull ’em up to a desk, and knock out a few emails. Yes, doing this requires a bit more of an effort than sorting Amazon search results or driving down the street to Office Max and settling on the first seat that seems like a decent fit, but when you’re talking about a product that could well be in your life longer than your current pet or significant other, an afternoon of butt testing seems prudent.

Of the almost 360 reviews on Amazon, I only found a couple complaints of parts breaking over time, which is better than all the other mid-back chairs at this price level (and even some more expensive ones, too.) The few negative reviews mostly pertained to assembly. Some said it was a quick 10-minute job , while others said it took an hour or longer and/or required screws of their own to complete.

Another concern: After having spent the previous few months sitting in the best task chairs money can buy, we could immediately detect differences in comfort. The Markus’s leather-covered seat pad was the least forgiving among the chairs we tested, its hard foam offering considerably less cushion than the Gesture’s softer foam pad or the Embody’s crazy pixel-matrix one. Testers noticed the hardness less and less as the days went on, but reported more frequent urges to wiggle around to relieve pressure while sitting in the IKEA chair compared with higher-end chairs. Knowing how important that surface-level butt comfort is to people, we think this is something to consider.

What is it like? It’s solid. Right when you start pulling things out of the box, you’ll notice the reassuring heft of the parts (this being IKEA, assembly is up to you). The materials seem to be of good quality; you get no sense of that cheap faux-luxuriousness you find with many of the chairs at this price at Office Max or wherever else. It’s hard to say how well the Markus will hold up over years of use, but at least you’ll have IKEA’s limited 10-year warranty, a rarity among chairs of this price.

Unfortunately, even a good chair might not be enough to save you from the problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Over the past few years, a huge amount of research has indicated that the central workplace health risk is not in using ill-fitting chairs but in remaining sedentary for long periods of time—whether that’s sitting or standing.1 We outlined the scientific case against sitting at length in our guide to standing desks, but here’s the gist: Recent studies have shown that long periods of not moving put you at higher risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and a handful of forms of cancer. But the good news is that modern task chairs such as the Steelcase Gesture and the Herman Miller Embody take this into consideration and actually encourage you to move while sitting.
