14 Best Office Chairs: Ergonomic Picks Tested and Reviewed

  • seat height and depth adjustable ✔
  • adjustable armrest height ✔
  • adjustable lumbar height ✔
  • tilt and tilt tension ✔

My experience: There’s already a Branch chair on the list; however, the Branch Verve Chair is a newer and sportier model. As a general practice, the armrests on ergonomic office chairs tend to be bulky, and the Branch Verve Chair immediately stands out because of the versatile armrest design, which gives it a futuristic look. I can also adjust the height of the softly-padded armrests, the seat depth, the tilt, and the tilt tension. Plus I can adjust the padded lumbar support on the chair’s V-shaped suspended back for the most comfortable level of spine support. (If you struggle to find a chair that fits you just right, you’ll love all of these customization options.) The chair back is covered with 3D knit, which allows air to flow through it and keeps me cool. The Branch Verse is available in Coral, Galaxy, and Mist.

The bottom line: In addition to looking sporty, the Branch Verve Chair is also functional. The design makes it easy to maintain the correct posture and provides plenty of spine support. Also, the 3D knit back is breathable, and overall the chair is quite comfortable to sit in, even for long periods of time.

What we really liked:

  • 3D knit back is breathable
  • V-shaped chair design provides lumbar support
  • Several color choices

My experience: Though this chair is pretty simple in design, I had a hard time assembling it because the manual didn’t have any written instructions—sure, it had step-by-step visual instructions, but some of the drawings were hard for me to decipher. I was able to eventually figure it out without making any mistakes, so I don’t think the $85 assembly fee would have been worth it, especially since that’s almost half the cost of the chair.

The chair immediately fit perfectly into my room. I like that it’s ergonomic, functional, and supportive yet not too bulky or large like many desk chairs tend to be. I like that this chair is simple, sleek, and monochrome with its black metal frame and black faux leather upholstery. Its square seat, light frame, and minimalist design make it cohesive with the rest of my room, unlike many desk chairs I’ve used that were clunky and lacked aesthetic appeal.

To me, this chair walks a fine line between decorative desk chair and a functional desk chair intended for daily use. Its contoured back, foam filling seat, and padded armrests offer lumbar support and comfort, but after sitting in it for a few long hours, it feels a bit rigid and hard.
