We offer over 190 products from trusted brands across various price ranges. Read on for our top picks for the best chairs for working from home to help you find the best ergonomic chair for you.
Why an ergonomic chair is important
Research (in 2019) has shown that 23% of Brits believe back pain has had a negative impact on their working lives, and 45% of people experiencing back pain found that sitting for prolonged periods of time was a trigger for their pain.
So many of us are now working from home and using chairs that simply aren't suitable for long periods of time seated in front of a computer. Ergonomic chairs help improve your posture and reduce back pain, preventing long term effects of poor posture such as spinal and joint dysfunction. An ergonomic chair is an investment not only in your comfort, but your long term health. This is something that old dining room chair can’t offer!
