Please, Take a Seat - but Which One?

We recently researched furniture for our office transition and, in doing so, encountered a surprising number of seating options. Long gone are the days where every office chair is uniform; they have evolved to fit the needs of almost any seating preference. Here are the five we found most relevant to our search:

Office Chairs

These are the most common because they are practical and affordable. They adjust, swivel and roll, making them a versatile option for the workplace. If you want to upgrade, you can get ergonomic or mesh chairs - or ergonomic mesh chairs. Ergonomic chairs boast superior back support and maximum comfort, and mesh chairs provide relief to the generally over-heated through their porous material.


Guest Chairs

As the name implies, these chairs are meant for visitors. They do not have adjustable features, as the guest will not be sitting for a prolonged period. These chairs are suited for the reception area, and can contribute to the ambiance through color choice.

Conference Chairs

This is a hybrid between the guest and office chair. It is stationary but provides more cushioning than guest chairs. Afterall, everyone in the conference should be comfortable and able to focus on the discussion at hand.

Uber Health Conscience Chairs

These are the most interesting chairs. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes to promote good posture and core stability. From exercise balls to stools, retailers are bringing a piece of the gym to the office.


Sit to Stand Chair

Can’t decide whether you want to sit or stand? This chair is a great option, as it adjusts to the height of a tall desk. You can stand throughout the day, and sit should your haunches tire.

It seems database management is not the only thing making technological strides. Best of luck in your search for seats; you will likely find more options than expected.
