Having a comfortable reception chair at your place of business, or even a nice guest chair in your office is key to making sure that your visitors or customers get to enjoy a nice stay whenever they’re passing by. The OFM Essentials leather executive guest side chair is one of those pieces of furniture that will leave them feeling comfortable and well received, so if you’ve been looking for a chair that will accommodate your guests pretty well, then this OFM Essentials Collection bonded leather executive chair is the one for you. Anyone who has been looking for the best office chair without wheels is definitely going to be curious about what this reception chair has to offer, and if that sounds like you, then go ahead and get to the end of this review to find out.

Why We Like It – OFM Essentials Collection Bonded Leather Executive Side Chair

The OFM Essentials Collection Bonded Leather Executive Side Chair is a decent, ergonomic office chair that has an upscale feel, and is also very affordable.

  • Padded armrests
  • Tube sled base frame that doesn’t damage your wall
  • Backed by a limited lifetime warranty
  • Non-adjustable


To be honest, there’s nothing special in terms of back support that this OFM Essentials Collection reception chair has to offer. The chair has a fairly low backrest, so you will get support for both your lower and mid back, but you shouldn’t expect to be able to move the seat back or anything like that. This is pretty much what you’ll also get with the AmazonBasics Classic Leather Office Desk Guest Chair, and both chairs are kept as basic as that so that the price range stays low, which in our opinion is a really good thing.

This OFM Essentials side chair is pretty comfortable to sit on thanks to its padded seat back and its padded arms. The chair’s black leather material also adds a very soft and smooth feel to it, while its modern stylish design gives it a very good look regardless of where you place it. The soft thread leather material is also water resistant, and this makes it very easy to clean. While the SPACE Seating Professional Airgrid padded eco leather seat might be comfortable, it might not be fully comfortable for you.


Similar to the Flash Furniture Black Mesh Sled Base Side Reception Chair, there aren’t any major adjustments that you’ll be able to make on the OFM Essentials bonded leather chair for it to fit your preferences.


As a chair seat that’s mainly made up of faux leather, the OFM Essentials chair isn’t really as breathable as a chair that’s made up of mesh material like the Office Factor Reception Guest Chairs, but this isn’t to say that you will be sweating too much when you’re sitting on it. The gap that’s at the chair’s low back helps a bit with airflow, so you should be able to sit on it for a reasonably long period of time before you start sweating.


If you’re weary about your walls being damaged, then what you should do is opt for the model that has a sled base. The tube sled base frame helps keep your walls from being damaged by the chair’s back, and on top of that, it’s also sturdy enough to support a weight limit of up to 250 pounds.

OFM Essentials Collection Bonded Leather Executive Side Chair Wrap Up

The amount of assembly required for you to put together this chair shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes to get done. In case you come across any faulty parts as you do so, you only need to reach out to the OFM team, and through your limited lifetime warranty, you should be able to get new ones or have the chair replaced altogether.
