Here are the best chairs for work and play in 2019

Whether you’re slaving away in the office or rapt in your favorite Netflix series, it’s important to feel comfortable. Here are the best chairs we have come across in 2019 — from ergonomic designs to gaming recliners.

Here are the best chairs for work and play in 2019
  • How much should you spend on an ergonomic chair? It’s worth investing good money, but you don’t need to spend over $1,000.
  • Do I need a specialist gaming chair? Not necessarily, although they are usually a little more adjustable, and feature more cushioning than others.
  • Do bean bags provide proper support? Yes, assuming you’re happy to recline. For this reason, they are best for relaxing.

A good chair is one that you don’t really notice. It will not make your back ache, and the arms will not be hard enough to bruise your elbows. This kind of seating perfection allows you to concentrate entirely on whatever you’re doing — whether that’s facing up the Fortnite competition or compiling spreadsheets. Here are some of our favorites.

Steelcase SILQ Ergonomic Office Chair

With a narrow, rounded back that provides excellent support, the SILQ will help you stay productive at work. It has a carbon fiber cradle that bends, allowing you to lean back and dream up new ideas.

Price: $672 USD


Herman Miller Cosm Office Chair

The Cosm from Herman Miller uses auto-harmonic tilt technology to keep your perfectly balanced at your desk. The fabric back adapts to your body shape, and the Cosm is built to last.

Price: $895 USD


KI Sway Customizable Lounge Chair

Available in a vast range of fabrics and colors, the KI Sway uses orbital movement to adjust to your posture. This means you can easily shift position during movie marathons.

Price: $724.99 USD


Modway Remark Modern Armchair

This plush armchair delivers mid-century style with generous armrests, non-marking feet and cozy fabric. It’s available in six different colors, with no assembly required.

X Rocker II Wireless Video Game Chair

Perfect for relaxed gaming with your friends, the X Rocker II has built-in wireless speakers for immersive sound. In addition, the X Rocker II provides good support at any angle.

Price: $119 USD


Jaxx Pixel Gamer Chair

The Jaxx Pixel is halfway between a beanbag and a chair. While the seat is soft and forgiving, the backrest provides solid back support. The Pixel is covered in vinyl and cone denim for better comfort.

Price: $179.99 USD


Carbon Line Gaming and Lifestyle Chair

The Carbon Line from RapidX is another hybrid. It looks somewhat like an office chair, and you could use it that way. However, the carbon frame is adjustable, making it ideal for gaming.

Price: $399.99 USD


Variable balans Ergonomic Desk Chair

The original kneeling chair, the Variable balans helps you maintain perfect posture. In addition, you will burn up to 150 calories an hour at your desk.

Price: $399.99 USD


BackStrong Sit-In-Motion Technology Ergonomic Chair

Thanks to a unique seat design, the BackStrong corrects your posture without forcing you into uncomfortable positions. The freely rotating bucket design promotes a natural S curve in your spine.

Price: $699 USD
