Best Ergonomic Office Chairs for the Money 2015

Updated on January 19, 2015

For Long Hours - Durability, Comfort, and Support are a Priority

If you sit in your office chair like I do almost every single day, then comfort as well as lumbar support is super important. Durability is also necessary because my hobbies, which include photo editing and gaming, also require that I sit long hours in front of the computer.

That being said, as a Father of 4 children I certainly don't have an arm and a leg to spend. As someone whose had experience wearing out many chairs in the past here's a few of the most comfortable and cheap office chairs you can find in 2015.

Is Your Favorite Chair Not Featured?

I'd love to hear about the office chair that you really love. Be sure to leave a response in the comment section below.

Lorell Mesh Executive Chair

Most Comfortable and Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair Under $200

A Great Aeron / Herman Miller Alternative

This mesh office chair from Lorell is a cheap alternative to the pricier Aeron chairs. I've owned this chair for well over a year now and as someone who is 6'4" and 240 pounds I can honestly say that I've put a lot of wear and tear on many chairs. This one; however, looks exactly the same as the day I bought it.

Whether your tall or short you'll like the high back of this chair along with the mesh. It breathes well and gives great lumbar support. It has a tilt and asynchronous three-lever control along with a 360 swivel so you can pretty much adjust it to any height, angle, and position that you'd want.

For the money you might find another Aeron or Herman Miller alternative for just over $200 but I honestly don't think it'd be any more comfortable. If you like mesh chairs and don't have a lot to spend, then I highly recommend the Lorell Executive High-Back Chair.

Picture: To the right you can see me on this chair in my home office. While I have pretty poor posture overall, the arch in the chair and lumbar supports really helps to keep me up where I need to be.

A Comfortable and Cheap Leather Office Chair Under $100

Great for a Small to Mid-Sized Adult

Admittedly this chair isn't for me, but my wife loves it. It does have some limitations, but for the money, it's a very comfortable leather seat. While it doesn't lean completely back, it does swivel and you can alter the height and extent of recline.

For the money, this mid-back black leather office chair is one of the better options out there for a small to mid-sized adult. It also looks sleek and is extremely easy to put together. If you're looking for a higher back, or mesh chair, then I've listed several of my favorite alternative options below.

Office Max Leather Chair

A Durable Ergonomic Leather Chair for Under $50

The Battista II Task Chair

This Battista II Task Chair from OfficeMax is a great deal while it stays on sale. At Under $50 you get a solid task chair that should last you a long time. The design is ergonomic and the chair sits well on the floor with the five star base design and it has an easy pneumatic seat height adjustment.

Overall this is a great office chair for the money and definitely worth considering if you work in a small space and want a chair without arm rests. I've listed a few alternatives below that are well-rated as well.
