Consensus

our Verdict

The Branch Verve is an impressive chair for office use, featuring adjustable tilt tension, a tilt lock, and a seat-depth customization lever. This chair is quite ergonomic, with a height-adjustable seat (17” to 20.5”) and flexible gliding rollers that will provide all-day comfort. The seat depth can also adjust between the 18” to 21” range, and the back tilts between 90° and 120°. This chair provides a tradeoff between breathability and cushioning, sporting a mesh back and seat that will appease people who prioritize airflow.

If you are strict about proper posture, then you will be impressed by the adjustable lumbar support of the Branch Verve. However, although the armrests of this chair are height adjustable, they don’t tilt or adjust forwards and backward.
