Top 5 Chairs to Make Your Office Cool Again

We’ve got it tough here at Average Joes. Sitting at a desk writing all day is not an easy business. If you’re anything like us, having a desk job means you’ll likely spend more than 1,000 hours per year in your office chair. Yes, 1,000! It’s therefore essential that you treat your office – and your back – to a chair that’s not only going to last, but looks ridiculously cool!

We firmly believe that not all desk chairs are created equal. Some are simply better than others – but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to fork out big bucks for one. So we’ve compiled a list to cater for all Joes with our Top 5 Chairs to Make Your Office Cool Again!


Staples Pyllo Leather Managers Chair in Black

One of our first favourites is this classic but contemporary split leather managers chair from Staples. It’s designed with three leather panels and a classic tilt lock, so it’s easily adjustable. With chrome arms and a chrome base plus chrome covered castors Staples recommend usage of 5-8 hours in a stint. Pretty ideal if you ask us. It also looks sleek and sophisticated and would naturally complement any minimalist white-washed office.
Price: £200
Available from: Staples


Lavita Director’s Office Chair in Black/Orange

The Lavita office chair is for those Joes who want a hint of colour in their abode. Made from professional high-quality materials. This practical beauty has adjustable armrests and an adjustable height. It’s thick and durable seat cushion is complemented with a rounded seat front and wide sitting area. You know what’s cool? Being comfortable. So the ergonomically designed backrest with breathable mesh fabric is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Senator Rhapsody Medium Back Chair in Butterstone

Adding some serious class to proceedings is this Senator Rhapsody. It’s a fully upholstered armchair with flowing lines and contemporary styling. With its generous recline and enveloping upholstered wrap around form, this design provides the very best in comfort for Joes. The Rhapsody’s curvaceous form, separate seat and cantilever back make this ideal for any modern office with a chair that screams luxury.

Buerostuhl24 City 80 Executive Chair in Black/Blue

What could be cooler than a seat that looks fit for a race car? Which is why we love sporty and modern designed Buerostuhl24 City 80. It’s covered in an imitation leather and fabric combination, so it’s a little less high-quality than some of the others in our list but it also means it’s cheaper. While it might not be made from premium materials, it is practical with an infinitely adjustable seat height with Toplift, a backrest with integrated headrest and a tilting mechanism individually adjustable to body weight.
Price: £135
Available from: Amazon


Herman Miller Embody in Mulberry

Again for those who need a bit of colour into their working environment – this chair is our favourite from the high-end market. Herman Miller is a much loved and trusted manufacturer from Michigan, and we adore the Embody in Rhythm Mulberry. The chair features height adjustable arms, seat depth adjustment, height and width adjustable arms and the very clever Thoracic support back that adjusts to suit the curve of your spine for ultimate comfort. The chair comes with a manufacturer’s 12 Year Guarantee for 24 hour use – which implies to us this is some serious bit of kit and should be well worth the heavy investment!
Price: £820
