Find Good Deals On Computer Chairs

Computer chairs are the perfect compliment to any office or home office. Comfort and ergonomics allow one to work for extended periods of time without having a sore butt. Ergonomics is defined as:

Ergonomics is defined as the science related to man and his work, embodying the anatomic, physiologic, and mechanical principles affecting the efficient use of human energy.

Which, in terms of computer chairs, means that you can work for a long time without back, arm or wrist pain. Even if a chair is comfortable, it isn't necessarily ergonomic. Check your posture in the chair. Your legs and back should be able to form close to a 90 degree angle for optimum ergonomics. A chair that leans back will help distribute your weight in the chair and make it more comfortable. Also consider who is going to be looking at the chair. If you're an executive (or trying to be) and need a chair that will compliment your office, look at high-back leather chairs. If looks aren't in issue, find the cheapest chair that fits your body.

Good Deals on Computer Chairs

The prices for computer chairs varies wildly, from under $20 to over $1000. How do you know if you're getting a good deal? First you need to figure out how much you want to spend on a chair. Good deals can easily be found for under $100, some under $50.

It's recommended that you do some research before heading to your local office supply store and buying the first one that you like. Ordering computer chairs online can help you save a ton of money as long as you find a deal on shipping. Computer chairs are usually shipped in large, heavy boxes that can incur serious shipping charges. Most of the "big-box" office supply stores (OfficeMax, Staples) either offer free shipping or free in-store pick up. The in-store pick up option is great if you live in an area that has one of these stores that is small or understocked. The OfficeMax in my neighborhood feels like a forgotten artifact by the corporation and is never stocked, so this is an option that I would greatly consider.

There are also stores that rent office furniture (Cort). This is viable option if you are looking for executive computer chairs for a non-executive price. They operate warehouse-style stores that are filled with office equipment that was once used by large corporations. If you are looking to buy multiple computer chairs, this is a great place to look.
