For many of us, working from home has become the new norm, and with it, we’ve had to make quick plans to bring a viable office space into our homes in the wake of the pandemic. An office chair is one of the most important pieces of furniture you can buy in this regard, especially as most of us spend upwards of eight hours a day in work-mode and perched in front of our computers. Going for an ergonomic choice when choosing an office chair for this space can make a world of difference to your comfort and your health. So which models are particularly popular among South African consumers in 2020?
Why It Pays To Have an Ergonomic Desk Chair At Home
While first instincts might just choose the first chair you stumble onto on Google, taking some time to research your options can mean the difference between a comfortable sitting experience, or one that accentuates back pain. An ergonomic chair is specifically designed with lumbar support in mind, meaning that it provides the type of support that encourages spinal health, and caters itself to the shape of your body, adjusting as you find a comfortable position. An ergonomic desk chair at home – especially if you foresee many months of having to be away from the office itself – ensures that you don’t pick up any preventable back injuries, or that you overexert your muscles by using a makeshift chair that hasn’t been designed to be used for hours on end.
WAU Ergonomic Chair
The first chair on our list is an exceptional choice, not only for it’s sleek design, but because it comes with all the back support you’ll need for your workday. The WAU Ergonomic Chair doesn’t only have the major benefit of providing good lumbar support. It has also been designed with parts that are able to be recycled, giving the user peace of mind that it is a sustainable purchase as well. Equipped with adjustable backrests, height adjustable armrests and tilt lock, this die-cast aluminium alloy chair goes over and above what you can expect to pay for it.
Sohum Mesh Managerial Chair
The Sohum Mesh Managerial Chair might be sold as a managerial chair, but who says you can’t feel like the boss at home? This chair comes with adjustable lumbar support and back rest features, four locking positions which can be changed using a synchro mechanism, and has the capacity to hold up to 150kg. While not making a tremendous splash about its ergonomic design, this chair has been particularly crafted to ensure sufficient back support regardless of who ends up sitting in it. Did we mention it comes with a 5 year warranty? Sold!
Apollo High Back Chair
Last but not least, the Apollo High Back Chair is a great choice for your home office, not only because it is one of the most beautiful chairs on the market right now. Coming in black or grey alternatives, this chair is 100% recyclable and has been moulded with a polypropylene shell. Some customers have suggested that it looks so sleek that it may well be found in a futuristic space movie. In terms of ergonomic design and ensuring your seat is secure (captain!), it won’t let you down. You also won’t be let down when you see how competitively it is priced relative to competitors in the market. Your work from home experience will be better than ever if you add it to your inventory this year.
