Ever wonder why the senior executives look so tired while they are sitting in the office? Why they seem grumpy and stiff when all they do is “sit around all day”? When any part of your body is in discomfort it shows on your face and affects your emotions. Some people complain about bad posture and neck/back pain because they are sitting all day long. Most of the time the reason behind all the agony is due to uncomfortable seating and to be more specific “uncomfortable executive seating”.
So how do we choose the best suitable executive chair for the boss? With so many options available for Executive seating it becomes hard to choose the chair. But if we keep in mind a few key factors we can make this decision easily.
Budget: The most important factor to take into consideration is your budget. Having so much variety can sometimes be mind boggling. Prices range from $900.00 – $5,000.00 If you can stretch your dollar for the sake of durability and comfort, my suggestion would be “you should”.
Style: This is the second most important key factor in choosing an Executive chair for your boss. Depending on the stature of an individual there are many chairs available. Some chairs are specially designed for big and tall individuals. Does your boss seem like a trendy guy, or more traditional. Ask your furniture provider what chair matches the personality type and they will advise you on the “style” of the latest looking chair, or the “style” of a chair that is timeless and has been around for years.
Ergonomics: Another factor to take into consideration is that you have to have an upright posture and less strained neck and back to achieve maximum comfort. Find out if he/she likes arms that stay positioned but move up and down, or arms that move backwards, forward, up and down? Some people like a lot of movement in the chair, whereas some don’t. Seat width is something to consider. Is your boss tall, short or medium height? Refer to your provider for details and options about what is available in your range for your boss’s body type and problem areas as far as ergonomics. Does he have lumbar support issues, or neck pain? All ergonomic issues should be addressed before investing in a chair.
Environment: Every office has different environment. If you are working in a trendy/ young office environment you should go for a fabric or leather color that is bright and upbeat. If you have a very professional atmosphere then sticks to colors like Black, Cream, Beige and Gray.
Specifications & Durability: Today’s modern styles come with various finishes and specifications like mesh, leather, fabric or combo. They come with seat sliders, tilters and more with an option for different caster and bases for carpets and hardwood floors.
Warranty: When buying an expensive chair it would be wise to check the warranty. A quality executive chair usually comes with an extensive long term warranty and includes in office after sales service. Many reputable furniture providers will service your chair onsite or provide you with a loaner if something should go wrong.
Executives usually spend longer time in the offices so it’s advisable to choose something with a good cushion, seat and back. It is wise to have your boss try out some loaner chairs to see which chair is best suited to his needs.
