The BestOffice Ergonomic desk chair is a comfortable and affordable choice but lacks adjustability and staple ergonomic features like a headrest. Good for the budget-conscious but disappointing for long-term needs.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The BestOffice Ergonomic desk chair is an entry-level office chair released in 2020. This chair offers a mid-back design with integrated armrests, swivel functionality, and rolling capabilities, just like you see in other top-rated office chairs.

The backrest uses mesh materials, and the seat uses a high-density sponge cushion. It measures 38” high, 18.5” wide, and 18” deep. This office desk chair also features some ergonomic features, including lumbar support and tilt. The BestOffice only offers adjustable height. The arms and lumbar support are both locked into place. However, you can adjust the tilt tension.

Consensus

our Verdict

The BestOffice Ergonomic desk chair is a simple, affordable, and overall well-built office chair. Its simple design will fit well in virtually any office space, and it’s small enough to stay out of the way, even in cramped spaces. However, the chair’s smaller size combined with its fixed-in-place armrests can result in a too-cramped configuration for those with wider hips or larger thighs.

The BestOffice office chair is made with breathable mesh material on both the seat back and cushion. The mid-back design and included lumbar support are the extent of the chair’s ergonomic features and lack extensive adjustability options. Unfortunately, you can only adjust the seat height and tilt tension. If you’re looking for an affordable and simple office chair with simple ergonomics, this is a good choice.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Includes Height and Tilt Adjustment Controls
    • The BestOffice Ergonomic desk chair offers both height adjustment and tilt tension controls. The height adjustment feature gives you an additional three inches of vertical height to match your specific height, which is the industry standard for ergonomic office chairs.

    • The chair boasts a tilt function that can be locked using a simple level. You can use the twist knob to increase or decrease the tilt tension to make it harder or easier to rock the chair, respectively. This gives you more control over your comfort levels.

  • Includes Lumbar Support
    • The best ergonomic feature of this chair is its integrated lumbar support. The mesh material on the seat back is flexible enough to allow your back to conform to the lumbar support for maximum effectiveness.

  • Comfortable Mid-Back Design
    • The mid-back design provides an overall comfortable seating experience that is perfect for smaller spaces. The mid-back configuration offers good support for your back and even gives you a place to rest your shoulders.

Reason to Avoid

  • Lacks Adjustability Options
    • Even though the chair is labeled as ergonomic, it unfortunately lacks a lot of standard adjustable features.

    • The armrests aren’t adjustable in any kind of way, and you can’t adjust the seat depth to match different leg lengths, either. You also won’t be able to adjust the height of the lumbar support feature to fit your exact height.

  • Tight Fit for Larger People
    • The position of the armrests and their lack of adjustability create a tighter fit for anyone with wider hips or larger thighs.
