I kind of lucked out. When shit was just starting to hit the fan with Covid-19, huge surge of lightly used office equipment for sale. I got a Knoll office chair that retails for roughly $1K new at $300.

ive heard bad things about gaming chairs if you’re looking for something thats quality and will last.

Does your chair have adjustable arms? I need that feature.

I think any gaming chair can be proper. Thing is company is allowing us to take the chairs with us if we want.Β

I would be the first in line to take one if that option was available! I'll look into gaming chairs.

I don't have a specific brand in mind, but I would say that one of the most overlooked features is the arms not only adjusting up and down, but also from side to side. Depending on your body type, you might need to bring the arms closer to you or rather push them further out to be seated comfortably.Β Helps with posture and with keeping your armsΒ  bent at a 90 degree angle.Β I haven't found many standard chairs that offer this feature though.Β

I agree the adjustable arms feature is important. I legit just asked about it above. I did not consider the side to side function. Good call!

I personally prefer Homall. The leather goes on the seat and mesh for the back and neck.Β Β

I am a Workspace Consultant and give you a lot of guidance on seating. But, again, I am not trying to sell, and if this is not ok on here. Please, let me know, and I will take it down.

If it is ok, then feel free to reach out for any advice.
