High End Office Chairs


Buying the most expensive high end office chair does not necessarily guarantee excellence. It is better to choose one for the support and flexibility it offers, rather than for how it looks.

Always consider what your special requirements are and whether the chair will let you adjust height and tilt, and offers the support features that you need.

1. Herman Miller Embody Chair

Embody from Herman Miller is more expensive than their best known office chair Aeron, but it has some features that make it worth consideration. It has excellent lower back support, which remains consistent whether you are reclining or sitting up. The narrower back also lets you move your arms freely. It looks different, too, especially from the side which mimics the spine.
