Choosing the right office chair is an important step when it comes to designing a new office design, but it’s equally important when you’re choosing an office chair for your home. Your office chair can tremendously impact your state of mind and productivity in the workplace as well as in your home office.
It doesn’t seem like much, but choosing the wrong office chair can result in detrimental consequences for you and your health. You will feel low, suffer all sorts of health issues, and take more days off work. You could experience similar health problems like backaches, low efficiency, and large medical bills.
Of course, no one wants to go through that.
Consider that you are going to be spending the better part of your days glued to the office chair you choose. You need to choose an office chair that is well-designed, safe, and comfortable. The good news is that there are tons of suitable ergonomic office chairs for you to choose from. The bad news is that there are tons of them.
So, to make this process easier for you, here are our own favorite chairs for you to explore and determine which office chair is best for your workspace whether at the office or at home.
Eames Ribbed Management Chair
Our first high-quality reproduction of our Eames Office Chairs is the Eames Ribbed Management Chair. This magnificent office chair has a low back that fits well in all kinds of rooms. The Eames Ribbed Management Chair is elegant, comfortable and features a premium leather upholstery, combining gracious lines and a powerful design with functionality.
The original design by Charles and Ray Eames as part of the famous Eames Aluminum Group of Office Chairs introduced in 1958. This particular office chair is named after the aluminum side ribs, which hold the one-piece seat-back suspension and creates a sitting pocket that embraces and welcomes the body.
Our Eames Ribbed Management Chair features
- Embossed Ribbing: Unlike inferior reproductions, we use heat embossed instead of stitched ribbing in each of our Eames Ribbed Management Chairs where the upholstery flattens. This embossed ribbing creates a more comfortable experience, just like the original design.
- Thin, Reliable Aluminum Base: We use the exact same classic Eames style, ultra-thin aluminum base in our Eames Ribbed Management Chairs. This frame not only looks great, but it’s also one of the strongest frames in the market, able to support over 400 lbs of weight.
- Minimal, Fast Assembly: Wheels, then Gas Lift, then Seat, then Arms. It’s that easy to assemble our Eames Ribbed Management Chair and all it takes is a few minutes. Less time assembling means more time getting important things done.
Eames Soft Pad Management Chair
Our Eames Soft pad Management Chair is one of the most comfortables office chairs in our Eames Aluminum Group Replicas. Our Eames Soft Pad Management Chair replica follows the exact same sophisticated refined aesthetic of these office chairs. With its clean lines looking as new today as when this Eames classic chair was first introduced in 1958. Our Eames Soft pad Management Chair is available with a manual lift as well as alternative variations with or without arms.
Originally designed in 1958 by Charles and Ray Eames for the Irwin Miller home, the Eames SoftPad Management Chair repeats the structure of earlier chairs in the Eames Aluminum Group of Office Chairs, adding cushions to the seat and back. Upholstered in premium leather, these cushions transformed the spare character of the Eames Aluminum Group and turned into a luxurious version for homes and offices around the world.
The Eames Soft Pad Management Chair was one of the office chairs to feature seat-back suspension, a major technical achievement for the age. The seat-back suspension represented a radical departure from the traditional concept of the chair as a solid shell. We love our Eames Soft Pad Management Chair replica because is wonderfully comfortable, strong and yet lightweight.
Our Eames Soft Pad Management Chair features a low back with arms, a lightweight aluminum frame and 2″-thick upholstered foam cushions. All built on a reliable 5-star base, just like the original, with tilt-swivel mechanism and seat-height adjustment.
This new pneumatic height adjustment allows for easier height adjustment, adds 2 additional inches to the top end of the height adjustment and the new tilt lock allows the seat angle to be secured in the neutral position.
Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair
The last of our Eames Office Chairs is the Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair, not to be confused with the Eames Soft Pad Management Chair. They might look alike but be entirely different.
Our Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair, just like his sister chair, follows the exact same structure of the Eames Aluminum Group Office but incorporating cushions to the seat and back. These cushions upholstered in premium leather completely changed the spare character of the Eames Aluminum Group Office Chair into a more luxurious version for homes and offices.
The Eames Soft Pad Executive chair features a high back with arms, a lightweight aluminum frame and 2″-thick upholstered foam cushions, all built on a solid, reliable 5-star base with casters, tilt-swivel mechanism, and seat-height adjustment, just like the original design. Additional features include a new pneumatic height adjustment for easier height adjustment and a new tilt lock that allows the seat angle to be secured in a neutral position.
Charles and Ray Eames, the original designers, had a unique synergy that allowed them to completely change the world of furniture, and the Eames Office Chairs are a great example of their style: lean, modern but overall, functional. The Eames Office Chairs look sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple.
Our last advice is not to choose an office chair just because it looks nice. Not all chair designs are ergonomic. That’s why office chairs are designed differently, office chairs are designed specifically to encourage good posture and provide the support you need for 8 to 10-hour workdays.
