*Editor’s review of the best office chairs. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to purchase. It is necessary to consult with a specialist before purchase.
Long hours of work at the computer makes great demands not only on the quality of the monitor, which affects the safety of vision, but also on the chair. According to recommendations of health professionals in such work should take regular breaks to warm up, and the position of a person in the chair should be “correct”. But, let’s be honest, not everyone cares about compliance with all the norms and recommendations of experts, so it would be wise to lay part of the obligations for the preservation of health and disability on the chair itself. The good news is that we do have such a possibility. The market is replete with all kinds of office chairs adapted to make working at a computer as comfortable and safe as possible.
Expertology editorial staff presents you a special rating-review of computer chairs which are optimal according to a number of important factors and are available for an average consumer.
How to choose a computer chair
Let’s start by analyzing the points worth paying close attention when choosing an office chair for comfortable and safe work in front of the computer.
Backrest and Seat
These are the most important structural elements of the chair for comfort and long-term workability. The backrest should have as many points of contact with your back as possible. At the bottom of the backrest it is highly desirable, if not obligatory, to have a curve at the level of the intended position of the lumbar. And it is important that this bend is neither above nor below your waist. Special ridges on the sides of the backrest are also good. Together, these are designed to reduce back fatigue and maintain proper posture over the long term.
As for the seat, optimum depth is important. It is generally assumed that a space between the end of the seat and the bend of the knee should be as wide as the palm of the hand. The point is to prevent vascular compression in the bend of the knee and, as a consequence, swelling of the legs and all the subsequent problems. Another point – it is desirable that the seat has in the center or closer to the backrest a small recess, which will allow you to easily fix the position and not to crawl.
This refers to auxiliary accessories and structural elements such as headrests, specially shaped sides, armrests, etc. Some parts or even all, depending on the model, can be adjustable. And by the way it’s desirable that all this is really adjustable, if you buy the chair not strictly for yourself.
Here you need to look at additional features of your work at the computer. So, for example, if the keyboard is on a pull-out shelf under the table top and the chair is not equipped with armrests, the arms will “hang” in the air and be in constant tension. The problem will remain if even the armrests are there, but not adjustable in height. All this doesn’t concern the armchair for a child, where armrests are contraindicated in almost 100% of cases for the prevention of scoliosis in a growing body. But child seats are a separate topic in general, and the final group of the rating with all accompanying explanations will be devoted to them.
As for the headrest, it can be sorely missed during long, intensive and strenuous work, when you need at least a couple of minutes to throw back your head and relax. Without proper headrest and low backrest there is nothing to rest your head against, but with high backrest without proper headrest the head on the relaxed neck will “fall” to the right or to the left. The headrests can often be adjusted in height.
Another accessory of ergonomics can be a lumbar support. This is a kind of “cushion”, which performs the functions of the bend at the bottom of the back, which we talked about above. This is most often a typical accessory for gamer chairs where you want maximum customization.
Now on to another important aspect. It is extremely obvious that to buy a chair in a store, which was originally made according to some averaged standards, and not the exact parameters of your body (which, by the way, can change over time, such as weight) and still hope that it will suit you perfectly is too naive. That’s why computer chairs are equipped with adjustment mechanisms that allow everyone to adjust whatever you need for height, arm length, body shape, etc. d.
The most obvious of the adjustment mechanisms is the height of the seat. It is absolutely necessary, because the height of people varies in a fairly wide range. The second one is the position of the backrest. There are already options here – the angle of the back or its height position. The first and/or second can be adjustable or fixed depending on the specific model. More moments – the rocking mechanism, the ability to unfold the chair by 180 degrees and literally lie down for a nap. Finally, the very type of adjusting mechanisms can mean fixation of the chosen position with a screw “twist” or a special lever. The latter is often preferred but with high quality materials and build quality.
This detail of the office chair serves as the base, on which the chair stands, in a playful analogy with the Christmas tree. Here is a simple physics. The wider the diameter of the upholstery, the more stable the chair is. The material of the chair can be plastic or metal, and very rarely – wood. As for the material we have to rely on the anticipated load (weight of the person sitting). As a rule, the ultimate allowable loads are described in the technical specifications. It is suggested that for a “heavyweight” chair the metal crosspiece is better, but there are a number of reservations: the part is solid/cast or welded, what kind of metal, its thickness, the presence of stiffening ribs, etc. d. At the same time, some kinds of polymers in terms of static loads can not be inferior to the metal. In our rating different variants will be presented.
As to the rollers, we are not worried about our own comfort and health, but about the safety of the flooring. Rollers made of ordinary “hard plastic” or, what’s worse, metal rollers can literally destroy not only the lacquered surface of the parquet, but also the hardy laminate, on which you can easily and without consequences extinguish cigarette butts. To solve the problem manufacturers equip armchairs with rubberized castors or semi-soft castors made of nylon. This fact must be clarified directly at the point of sale.
The upholstery material of a computer chair is in many ways a secondary issue, but only at first glance. First let’s find out about materials – it can be natural leather, the so-called “eco-leather”, furniture fabric (or a variety of textiles), microfiber, aerofoil.
- with leather, Seemingly everything is clear, and at first glance it seems to be the best option. But in fact such covering most often has very modest “breathing” properties, which means that without micropores or evenly applied tiny holes on the natural leather you will trivially sweat. Not to mention the fact that the leather covering is much more expensive.
- The term “eco-leatherwe have deliberately put in quotes, as under this word combination manufacturers often hide very often even high-quality, but still quite “chemical” polyurethane, which with skin has only external resemblance. We emphasize, eco-leather – it’s not a bad option, and this coating is quite practical, pleasant to the touch, easy to clean and very widely used. We just want you to understand that it’s not leather after all.
- Furniture textile– an amateur solution. Its advantage is that the surface breathes perfectly, and even a bare back on a textile backrest will not be cold and slippery. The disadvantage is that a spilled cup of coffee on the seat is a one hundred percent “verdict” to the chair appearance.
- Microfibercan be considered a special case of the textile upholstery with the difference that microfiber is extremely pleasant in terms of tactile contact, but in terms of dirt it has all the same drawbacks as the furniture fabric.
- Aeroset– Excellent material that wicks sweat away from your body and won’t let you sweat unpleasantly even during the hottest game battles. If this material is used in the construction of the chair, it is only in certain areas where it is most appropriate.
We have listed and briefly described the main points of choosing a computer chair that matter in functional terms. Aesthetics, design, representation class, color scheme – all this is a matter of individual preferences. Now moving directly to the very ranking of the best computer chairs that our industry experts recommend.

The best computer chairs for gamers
First of all let’s look at three models of chairs that are good for keen video game players. In addition to quality and performance, our experts were also guided by affordability when selecting the best models. All three models include adjustable headrests, armrests and lumbar support. Backrest height position and seat depth are not adjustable.
The AC220 model by the Taiwanese furniture brand AeroCool is a very interesting and functional item which is good both for its expressive “predatory” appearance and for its satisfactory functionality which does not add weight to the final cost.
Loading capacity 150 kg. The basic shade – black, shades of design elements and individual artifacts can be chosen from blue, white, green (closer to lettuce), orange and red.
The computer chair has the following dimensions: seat – 54x55x14 cm, backrest is about 80 cm high, wheel diameter 60 mm, height adjustable from 40 to 48 cm relative to the floor. Diameter of the armrest – 350 mm. Total seat height 123-131 cm. Net weight of this model is 21 kg, with the package 24 kg. Package dimensions – 86x70x33 cm.
Upholstery of the contact surfaces of the chair is made of PU leatherette (the very eco leather), sides – PVC with texture “like carbon”, back side is hard with texture of carbon fiber. In general, the design of the model has a “racing” theme, and the manufacturer even mentions it.
The frame in this model is metal, but the crossbar is nylon, however, it is strong enough to withstand the aforementioned 150kg load. Armrests are made of a different polymer – strong and durable. The chair has a special polyurethane foam filler inside. Its density is: in the back – 45, in the seat – 50 kg / m ³. Semi soft nylon castors. Pneumatic actuator of the highest class 4.
Special features of the computer chair include: changing the position of the armrests by turning around the axis and vertically, swinging in the range of 3-18 degrees of tilt at the expense of the mechanism “Butterfly” (you can change the hardness of the rocking with a special device); headrest position adjustment (including the angle of tilt, which is not very common), opening the chair to 180 degrees with turning it into a makeshift couch.
- expressive design;
- high-quality materials;
- Opening up to 180 degrees;
- choice of colors.
- Unreliable armrest rotation locking and backlash.
ZONE 51 Gravity
Rather rare case where the manufacturer offers several color variants of his computer chair at once. This is not the main feature of the ZONE 51 Gravity. Much more important seems high quality workmanship. It is impossible to complain about the seams and the condition of the eco leather, which allows you to hope that it will remain in perfect condition for a long time. And the tilt mechanism is superbly realized – it works even under very heavy people. By the way, the manufacturer announced the maximum capacity of 150 kg!
Coming back to the durability, it is impossible not to mention the long warranty. In this case it is equal to 36 months. Another important advantage of this armchair is the rocking mechanism, which allows you to relax between the game battles. The manufacturer also did not forget about the gaslift, which allows you to change the height of the chair. This structural element belongs to the fourth class. This model is placed on the floor with the help of a crossbar, most of which is made of metal. The wheels allow you to move quickly to another part of the room without getting up from the chair.
ZONE 51 Gravity comes with two cushions. They, in particular, do not give strain to the neck and lower back. Used by the chair and the headrest. Finally, the armrests are not forgotten. In short, everything is made so that you can play for as long as you want without getting tired. It is not surprising that the chair is often seen in the frame of different streams.
- Excellent rocking mechanism;
- Reliable gazlift;
- A metal crosspiece is used;
- There are two cushions;
- Long life suede and eco leather;
- A lot of color options;
- Withstands even a 150-kilogram load;
- Long Warranty.
- The cost can not be called low;
- At first there is not a very pleasant smell;
- Armrests have some play.
The final position in this computer chair rating selection is the iCar model from TetChair, a major domestic supplier of furniture from Southeast Asia. This computer chair is slightly loses to the two previous ones in some respects, but appreciably wins in the price.
The upper load limit of this model is 120 kg. Total height – 125-136 cm, seat level height – 44-55.5 cm depending on adjustment. The dimensions of the seat – 51×55 cm, the height of the backrest – 80.5 cm.
The upholstery material is a fairly high quality polyurethane. The load bearing parts are made of plastic, but they are strong enough to withstand the weight of the chair. Polyurethane foam is used for the filling, but its density and other properties are not specified by the manufacturer. The castors material is not listed directly, but it is supposed to be polyamide – strong plastic, but pretty tough, so you may need a mat to protect the floor covering.
The iCar has almost exactly the same functionality of the two models described above. The headrest is easy to move vertically on the straps, armrests rotate around the axis and lift/lower, the synchronous rocking mechanism with adjustable rigidity is implemented, the maximum angle of chair unfolding – 180 degrees. The positioning level of the backrest and the seat depth do not change.
This chair is available in three colors: background color is black, design elements colors are orange, blue and red.
- affordable price;
- unfolding into a “couch”;
- Attractive exterior;
- sufficient functionality.
- Spot claims for the quality of materials and neatness of the assembly.
The best office chairs
The second group in the rating of the best computer chairs according to Expertology are armchair models, which are best suited for office use. The main condition, which our experts put when choosing worthy variants – durability and reliability for increased intensity of workloads.
A very expensive chair. Not surprisingly, it can be seen mostly in executive offices, and not with ordinary workers. The price of the product affected the quality of its manufacture. And you should not forget that this chair is created from the best materials. Here, even the armrest is made of polished aluminum. The manufacturer assures that this part is ready to withstand a 120-kilogram load!
This model exists in two colors: black and brown. Its main distinguishing feature is the rocking axis. The person sitting on the chair can adjust it to his weight. Elegant armrests also in polished aluminum. It has leather overlays, which, with proper care, should retain their ideal appearance even after five or six years. By the way, most of the upholstery is also made of leather. And only few inserts were made of leatherette.
Like any other computer chair, this is adjustable in height. For this purpose, a reliable gazlift is used, to which there are no complaints. As for the weight of the model called “Bureaucrat Aura”, it is 23,4 kg.
- The rocking axis is adjustable by the weight of the person;
- It is possible to lock the tilt in several positions;
- Withstands a heavy load;
- Most of the upholstery is made of genuine leather;
- It uses a reliable gazlift;
- Some parts are made of polished aluminum;
- There are two color options.
- Very high price.
Hara Chair Nietzsche
An excellent option for those who are going to spend a lot of time at the computer. These have design elements that allow you not to get tired even after seven or eight hours. A comfortable headrest, for example, is immediately apparent. There is also lumbar support. Will not let you get tired quickly in a sitting position and a double backrest. In short, in many ways, this chair is not inferior to a quality car seat. But Hara Chair Nietzsche has one difference: it is thinner and much lighter. This allows you to use it even in a relatively small room.
In order to reduce the size and weight of the chair, the manufacturer had to go to all sorts of tricks. For example, it has greatly simplified the design. In this case it consists of only three parts that are firmly connected to one another. It goes without saying, that the frame is mostly made of metal. But the plastic joints do the trick: the chair can’t hold more than 90 kg.
Simplification is noticeable in the upholstery material. If you were expecting to find real leather, or at least its equivalent, we’re going to disappoint you. One might also like the mesh fabric. When you sit for a long time in the chair, it is even good for you, because with it you definitely will not sweat.
This model exists exclusively in black color version. Like many other computer chairs in this price segment, the product is able to please with synchromechanism of rocking. It allows you to relax and then go back to work, but with renewed vigour. Not to mention the possibility of adjusting the headrest position. Hard to complain about the chrome-plated steel armrest, complete with five double wheels. They have a rubber surface, so you can not be afraid to use the chair on any type of floor covering.
The buyer of this model can complain only about the armrests. They have the same fabric cover, which will not suit everyone. Also their position can not be adjusted, which, however, can not be considered a special disadvantage.
- The price can’t be called overpriced;
- There is an adjustable headrest;
- A double backrest is used;
- A reliable penta-height;
- There is a rocking mechanism;
- The lumbar support is implemented.
- Not the best armrests;
- I would like the upholstery in leather;
- Not designed for a load of more than 90 kg.
Metta Samurai SL-2.04
In most offices, every scrap of space counts. In this regard, models with a very thin back are usually purchased as a chair. And this is exactly what the Metta Samurai SL-2 has.04. That’s because it takes up so little space. Even with full armrests and a rather massive five-armrest!
The frame of the chair is made of metal. Of quite thin, so it is not recommended to take this model for a person whose weight exceeds 90 kg. The frame is stretched with mesh fabric. When you sit in this armchair it feels like you are in a hammock. And for sure, with this material your back will not start to sweat. But the chair should be taken care of – with all caution, because it can easily be damaged.
As for the seat, it is more familiar. It turns out voluminous, and as a covering it is used wearproof perforated material NewLeather. The pads found on the armrests are also made of it.
As it should be, the rocking mechanism is implemented here. And the manufacturer has shifted it forward slightly. It is claimed that it allows the blood vessels in the legs not to squeeze, because they remain on the floor. Another important feature of the chair is the ability to fix a specific tilt angle.
The headrest in this model is adjustable in height, depth and angle. And if it seems unnecessary to you, you can remove it at all. As for the five-armed chair it ends with polyurethane rollers. It is noted that these wheels not only withstand a decent load, but also do not leave unnecessary marks on the floor covering.
Finally, it is impossible not to mention the existence of six color variants. This allows you to match the chair to the specific interior of the room. Not surprisingly, the chair Metta Samurai SL-2.04 is not uncommon not only in offices, but also, for example, in hairdressing salons.
- Not very large size and weight;
- The armrests have a soft coating;
- The removable headrest is adjustable in every way;
- There is a rocking mechanism;
- Comes with a lumbar pad;
- A large number of color options;
- Any angle of inclination can be fixed;
- The wheels can be used on any type of flooring.
- Not intended for very heavy load;
- The price will not suit everyone;
- The mesh fabric needs to be taken care of;
- The kit does not include keys for assembling.
One of the most affordable executive chairs. It has a very large size and impressive appearance. But the cost, of course, affected the upholstery materials. At first it may seem that the manufacturer has chosen a natural leather. Alas, this is not the case. The leather here is man-made, which means that the chair needs constant care. Otherwise, after a year or two the look will be absolutely unpresentable. At least if you use the chair for its intended purpose every day.
This model is available in beige and white. Whichever you choose, you will get an elegant chair, the frame of which is made of chrome metal. The same material was used for the five-beam. This design element ends with plastic wheels. This is probably the main disadvantage of the Woodville Osiris. The thing is that such casters are very unreliable. You can be sure that after about a year you will need to replace at least one of them. Fortunately, this process can not be called complicated, and you can find other castors in a huge number of online stores.
Unfortunately, it uses a simplified form of backrest. Yes, it’s beautifully perforated. However, this does not cancel the fact that there is no normal lumbar support. Because of this, the chair is not recommended for people who are going to sit in it eight to nine hours a day. The rocking mechanism is also slightly simplified. But it is present, and this is the most important thing. And the manufacturer also endowed their creation with height adjustment. At the same time gaslift can not be called lousy – in the reviews on it don’t complain.
- It uses a metal pentaheel;
- There are two color options;
- Reliable gaslift;
- The price is adequate;
- sleek design.
- There is no lumbar support;
- Unreliable wheels;
- Artificial leather is used.
C2W Channel Co
The next office model in our rating is a very original solution by C2W. This is a Russian company, the name of which is deciphered as Chairs To Work. It is engaged in deliveries from abroad, but also owns its own production lines in the Russian Federation.
This model belongs to the representative class and is aimed at equipping the executive workplace. Implemented in a classical design – massive form, double diagonal stitching in the style of French design of the 60’s, but also with the presence of elements emphasizing the modernity of the product. The cost of the chair is also “premium”, comparable to the previous model.
The computer chair is designed for the maximum load of 120 kg. The preferred upholstery material – eco-leather (polyurethane – 25%, cotton – 75%, density – 280 g / sq. cm. The seat has a large capacity of 3 to 54 ml/sq. m. and an air permeability of 3 to 54 ml/sq. m. see). As an option the upholstery can be made of leather or other material. The basic upholstery colors are black, white, beige and brown.
The seat dimensions are 44 cm (width) by 50 cm (depth). The backrest is 64 cm high. The level of the seat is 44-57 cm from the floor. The total height of the chair, respectively, 108-121 cm.
The customization possibilities of this model are not as rich as of the previous one, but in many ways it is not because of the “greed” of the manufacturer, but because of the shape and design features. So, the only height position of the seat can be adjusted, and the voluminous seat cushion can be lifted up for easy dust cleaning. In the construction of the cross is integrated synchro-system rocking M

The armrest is made of high-strength alloy, and its shape can be chosen when coordinating the details of completing the chair. The wheels are made of metal with chrome-plated parts that do not contact with the floor; the contact surface is polyurethane, which guarantees the preservation of the appearance of almost any floor covering.
Metta Samurai S-3
Our rating continues with the original chair by the Russian company Metta. Its originality lies in a fundamentally different approach to ergonomics than in all of the above models. The most notable difference is the original absence of filler in the backrest and seat. The surface in this case is a special heavy duty mesh fabric reinforced with aramid fiber. Color palette: black, white, gray, beige, brown, blue, burgundy.
Let us first list the key physical parameters of the chair. Maximum load limit for this model is set at 120kg. Dimensions: seat – 52×54 cm, height of seat position from the floor – 49-59 cm, the total height – 123-131 cm.
The customization and mechanical elements of ergonomics include: lumbar support, metal armrests with plastic pads (adjustable in three parameters – vertical, horizontal angle and distance between armrests), headrest with adjustable angle and height (optionally without headrest), rocking mechanism of synchronous type M
- tiblock with offset center of gravity axis and adjustable stiffness. The seat and backrest are fixed and not adjustable.
You can order special seat covers of different softness levels as an accessory. The seat covers are made partly from the innovative material NewLeather, which includes genuine leather with perforated and reinforced nylon threads.
The chair is made of heavy-duty alloy with a mirror chrome finish. All other open metal parts of the chair are made in the same way. The soft polymeric castors sized 60 mm have anti-drumming properties (when the chair is “empty” – prevent accidental movement, and with a load allow you to move the chair without effort), do not scratch the floor covering, silent and durable.
The manufacturer provides 10 years warranty on reinforced mesh fabric and metal frame computer chairs.
Chairman 668 LT
Now let’s look at the chair which is interesting first of all due to the expressive contrast between impressive appearance and extremely affordable price. This model is part of a wide range of upholstered furniture produced by the Taipit Trade-Industrial Group.
Computer chair design is quite laconic, but emphasized-representative, and may be suitable for equipping the workplace of the head or first managers. The upholstery is made of not bad leatherette, with four colors to choose from – black, gray, brown and beige. The stuffing is ordinary foam rubber. The chair is plastic.
The dimensions of the computer chair are as follows: seat – 53×46 cm, the seat position level – 51-61 cm from the floor, backrest 56 cm in height, the height of the entire chair – 107-117 cm, weight – 17.5 kg. Designed for up to 120 kg, like all neighboring models.
The functionality of this chair is very minimalistic. Of the adjustment possibilities – only the height of the seat position. Also a synchronous rocking mechanism is built in, which provides for fixation in one position and adjusts its rigidity. Armrests are soft upholstered metal, non-adjustable. There is a headrest with a fixed position.
And the KB-8 series with the pretentious name “Bureaukrat” completes the selection of the best office chairs in the Expertology rating. Actually it’s not even just a product line, but the whole brand, under which the Russian company of the same name produces a wide range of office supplies and stationery. Production is mostly in Southeast Asia, but also has its own assembly line in the Moscow region.
The shape and concept of this model is slightly similar to Samurai S-3 by Metta, described above. But this resemblance is only remote and consists in the fact that the chair back is a mesh fabric without any layers, padding and fillers. The seat is more voluminous, but also without polyurethane foam filling, as most of the models described above.
Designed for the same load as all the previous chairs – 120 kg. Its dimensions are as follows: seat – 53×48 cm, the seat position from the floor – 46-56 cm backrest 74 cm in height, the total height of the chair – 120-130 cm.
From ergonomic additions armchairs have a non-adjustable headrest, plastic armrests. There is also a built-in rocking mechanism with adjustable stiffness, but it is quite limited – it only allows you to rock the back.
The upholstered parts of the chair (e.g. headrest) can be covered by eco leather, furniture textile or leather of your choice. Chair frame is made of durable polymer.
This chair is available in 4 colors: blue, red, gray and black.
The best computer chairs for kids and teens
The final selection in our rating are computer chairs and armchairs specially designed for children and teenagers. Their design features often differ significantly from the “adult” versions, and these differences are dictated by the recommendations of orthopedists and the requirements of relevant standards. For example, some models of children’s chairs may not have armrests. This is not the manufacturer’s savings, but a direct adherence to the instructions of specialists – a growing body does not need involuntary “crutches”, which can spoil the posture.
Nobel from the Taiwanese manufacturer MEALUX. There is speculation that the origin of the brand is either Russian or Ukrainian, as the brand name is registered in both countries, while there is no representation in Taiwan. However, the product itself elicits admiration for quality, safety and meticulous attention to detail.
This computer chair is even more junior-oriented than its predecessor, despite the fact that its load capacity has been increased to 100 kg. Nominally suitable for children from 4 years old.
The model is not equipped with armrests, only textile is used as upholstery, the colors are very different (red, pink, purple, blue, green, orange) with multicolored abstract design.
The chair allows you to adjust not only the height of the seat from the floor (from 28 to 55 cm), but also its depth ranging from 32-38 cm. The height of the backrest is also adjustable.
The metal crosspiece of a special asymmetric shape guarantees stability, and the castors are equipped with special locks to limit the movement of the chair. These retainers will be a real salvation for a very expensive chair when the kid feels like giving it a good ride around the apartment.
60-month manufacturer’s warranty for Nobel.
FUNDESK Primavera I baby
A great orthopedic chair that can grow with the child. An interesting design allows you to gradually raise the backrest and seat higher from the floor surface. All this is done literally in a couple of movements, which cannot but rejoice. Just like the adult models, the FUNDESK model is equipped with wheels, thanks to which the child can safely roll and spin. The only difference is that the fifth roller is right in the center – because of this the platform used here can not be called a real five-arm. There’s no gaslift, because you don’t need one.
The upholstery material used by the manufacturer is regular textile. He rightly felt that the child does not need neither natural nor artificial leather. Remember that the fabric should be cared for regularly, otherwise it will retain its original appearance for many years. However, much more important is the shape of the backrest and seat used here. It’s orthopedic, which gives you hope for the perfect posture of your child. Especially if he does not forget to sit properly in school, too.
The chair allows you to adjust the tilt of the back. You should also be pleased with two color options. However, I would like to see other colors, not just the banal blue and pink. It is interesting that the product is ready to support even an adult person in case of emergency. At least if its weight does not exceed 80 kg. The chair itself weighs 15 kg. Not a lot, but it shows its reliability.
Chairman Kids 103
Children usually do not like the traditional monochrome colors of the furniture. That’s why the upholstery of the Chairman Kids 103 has a pattern. And it can be different – there are at least nine options! Perhaps the most interesting chairs are those with gamepads on a dark background and funny dogs, as if they came from some cartoon. If we talk about the crosspiece, it is painted in white. Which is also, you will agree, atypical for a computer chair.
The product turned out to be small, but comfortable. The curved backrest allows you to sit in the chair without much strain. This is also due to the top-gear rocking mechanism. Rest assured, your child will quickly get used to it, and will not imagine working at a computer without the chair with this mechanism, allowing at any time to relax.
Another advantage of this model is the wide armrests. The only embarrassment is the fact that the upper part of the plastic on them does not have any coating. It seems that the manufacturer decided to save money on this, to achieve a lower cost of his creation. Well, he did it – now this is one of the most affordable children’s computer chairs. At least among those with such a wide range of colors of fabric upholstery.
Despite the not so high price tag, this model has got at its disposal a full-fledged gazlift, albeit only of the third class. You can adjust the seat height with it. Unfortunately, there are no other settings. If you are looking for a chair that also allows you to change the angle of the back, the Chairman Kids 103 is not your choice after all.
The penultimate item in our rating is the children’s chair CH-797 from the Russian company “Bureaukrat. This is not a bad design solution at more than an affordable price.
