The Modway Prim Ribbed mid-back office chair is a stylish leather chair that stands out due to its superior construction and modern design. For added versatility, the desk chair is available in up to 6 different colors, and has a durable leatherette cover that keeps it easy to clean and water resistant. Adjusting the chair to your preferred seat height is also pretty easy thanks to its pneumatic gas lift, and its five-star aluminum base also has 5 smooth rolling caster wheels that allow for a 360-degree swivel. Is this enough to have it considered one of the best armless office chairs around? Can it compete with the best office chair? Let’s find out.

Why We Like It – Modway Prim Ribbed Armless Mid Back Swivel Conference Office Chair

The Modway Prim Ribbed Armless Mid Back Swivel Conference Office Chair is a perfect example of the kind of office furniture that you can have close to your living room without it looking out of place. The ribbed armless chair is stylish, ergonomic and of good build quality, so you’ll be able to use it for a long time after you buy it.

  • One of the most stylish picks in its category
  • Pneumatic seat adjustment
  • Comes with a 1 Year Warranty
  • No massage function


There’s really no advanced form of lumbar support on the Modway armless mid-back swivel office chair, so if you are dealing with any form of back pain, you’d be better off considering another chair. One that comes to mind is the Flash Furniture Mid-Back home office chair, and the reason we would prefer to use this chair over the Modway ribbed armless mid-back computer desk chair is the fact that this one has a curved backrest, thereby keeping your back in a good posture as you continue to work.


By all means, the Modway Prim ribbed armless office chair is quite comfortable to sit on, but it’s no match for the AmazonBasics Leather Mid-Back Office Chairs simply because the latter is more heavily padded. The Modway chair comes with faux leather upholstery, and this material looks good and also feels quite easy to touch.

Lifting the seat on this Modway Prim ribbed armless mid-back office chair is pretty simple thanks to the pneumatic lift feature that makes this seat height adjustable, so you shouldn’t have any problems adjusting the chair according to your height. What you’ll find missing in this Ergonomic Office Chair Desk Chair that you’ll find in this chair is a tilt tension control lever that is normally found right under the seat cushion. You’ll still have to use the same lever to adjust the seat height, but that shouldn’t be an issue.

Since this mid-back swivel conference office chair is not a mesh chair, breathability is not as good, but it is manageable. This is because the chair’s backrest is not as large and wide as that of other high-back chairs, so your entire back isn’t really covered when you sit on it.

Like most desk chairs within its price category, the Modway Prim mid-back swivel conference office chair is pretty easy to put together, and has as an additional piece of your home office furniture. The swivel conference chair is also quite light, and this makes its 331-pound weight capacity pretty impressive. Being a quality product, the chair also comes with a 1-year warranty, so you shouldn’t expect anything to start breaking up as soon as you buy it.
