Executive Elegance: Chairs that Command Respect

Executive chairs are about more than comfort, though that’s a vital part of the package. These are the literal seats of power in your organization, and they should be a statement of authority and style. The Acclaim, Tori, Cortina, and Mila by 9to5 Seating all offer unique designs that allow leaders to choose a chair that best fits the style of their office and their comfort needs. 

Understanding that comfort isn’t a one-size-fits-all scenario, Big & Tall chairs are also worth considering. The Logic Plus and Presto Plus, for example, are both rated at 500 lbs. and feature full ergonomic adjustments to accommodate larger body types without compromising on comfort or style. 

Simplifying Your Search for the Best Office Chairs

Choosing the right office furniture means making a series of critical decisions while understanding that each individual and each workspace has unique needs. In many cases, the employee’s task chair is THE single most important piece of furniture a company will purchase. Even with the rising popularity of the “sit to stand” concept and products—which are also very important to the overall health of the employee—a properly fitted, ergonomic task chair for the employee is also essential. The employee must learn to sit “in a chair” rather than “on a chair” to take full advantage of all the adjustments available.
