Anyone looking to save some coins on an executive chair that has decent features and is priced well within the reach of most people should consider the Furmax High Back Office Chair. This high-back chair is well suited for keeping you comfortable through those long work sessions, and thanks to its ergonomic design, you’ll be able to avoid any form of back pain that may come about from a bad posture. Could it be the best executive leather office chair for buyers on a budget?  Does it have a shot as the best office chair? Let’s find out.

Why We Like It – Furmax High Back Office Chair

The Furmax High Back Office Chair is a bonded leather executive-style office chair that has an ergonomic design, and is well suited to keep users comfortable during long stints of work at the office. The high back office chair has a weight capacity of about 300 pounds, and is available in either black or brown.

  • Weight capacity of 300 pounds
  • Curved Armrest
  • Noiseless rollers
  • No massage function


The Furmax High Back office chair comes with limited lumbar support, and the fact that it is not adjustable may have it lose out on some points in the eyes of some buyers. Despite that, the chair also comes with padded armrests for elbow support, and just like the AmazonBasics High-Back Office Chair, the armrests cannot be adjusted. The Furmax high back office chair also has a wide seat that measures 20.9 x 20.1 (W x D), thereby offering a significantly large area of sitting space for maximum comfort.

Most people will agree that the soft PU leather on the Furmax High Back Office chair makes it look as though it is a very comfortable chair to sit on, and quite frankly, this is because it is. The high-back office chair is heavily padded, and despite the lack of a footrest like you’d find on most gaming chairs, it remains a high-quality, heavy-duty office chair that is capable of providing all-day comfort. Its padded seat cushion feels very good to sit on, but in terms of design, we would opt for the OFM Essentials Collection Racing Style SofThread Leather High Back Office Chair since its diamond-shaped stitching gives it a more executive look.

Just like any other comfortable office chair, adjustments on the Furmax high back office chair are pretty easy to make. The seat height can be adjusted to between the ranges of 17.3 and 20.5 inches, and the noiseless rollers allow for a 360-degree swivel, so you’ll always be able to reach across the office without standing up.

The PU leather that’s used on the Furmax adjustable ergonomic desk chair is indeed easy to clean, but in terms of breathability, you shouldn’t expect it to match the kind of comfort you would get from a breathable mesh chair, for example. You won’t be sweating out your back after sitting on it for long periods of time, but you might need to stand up from it every now and then just so that the chair can cool down. You’ll have pretty much the same experience with the Serta Bonded Leather Big & Tall Executive Chair, though you could opt for a mesh chair if breathability is a priority for you when buying an office chair.


Finding a comfortable office chair to use always boils down to a few things – how much money you’re willing to spend, the type of back support you want, and the type of material that the chair is going to be covered in. The Furmax height adjustable office chair, for example, is what most people would consider a budget buy. This is because it comes covered in PU leather, and it also has limited lumbar support, which are the same features as the Devoko office reception/guest leather chairs.

Furmax High Back Office Chair Wrap Up

Despite not being as well known as other more established office furniture brands, Furmax still does a good job in manufacturing office chairs that are very pocket-friendly, and look very good. The easily adjustable seat is also very easy to assemble and is a great piece of furniture to have, especially if you intend on working from home.
