A chair can be considered used for a number of reasons, but most internet retailers will not sell it as used unless the chair has been preserved in almost original condition. Most chairs are returned for a reason as minuscule as the fabric did not match their home decor or the seat was too large for their build. In this situation, the next customer who purchases this chair will essentially be getting a terrific bargain by purchasing a chair that has been used for a few days with little to no risk of a defect occurring. Other times, a customer may use a chair for only a few days before determining that it did match up to their expectations and will return it to find something that fits them better or feels more comfortable. Another benefit to purchasing used chairs online is most retailers will specifically state if there is any damage to the product, whether there are minor scuffs on the base or a scratch in the fabric, this information is often disclosed. If this information is not readily available, ask a salesperson to provide you with the condition of the chair. Any person should be able to tell you this, or if not find someone who can.
Next you will need to figure out the seat height range necessary for you to be able to keep your feet flat on the floor while working(or on a foot rest) and work with your height. You will also need to take into consideration the height of your desk to ensure your chair will fit underneath your desk if needed, especially if you would like a chair with armrests. Most standard desks are 29\" measured from the floor to the top of the desk, however some have higher workstations or adjustable desks that can be lowered and raised if needed. If you are a shorter individual a standard cylinder that comes with most office chairs may be too tall for you causing your legs to be bent at an awkward angle. The same can be said for taller individuals who need a longer cylinder and higher seat height adjustment range. Certain specialty ergonomic office chairs offer different cylinder size options to accommodate individuals of any height from children 4’ tall to adults that are 6’8\".
After you determine the ideal height for the backrest of your chair, your next concern is making sure your thighs will fit properly on the seat. The average seat depth on any given office chair is typically about 19 inches deep, however, if you are taller most likely this means you have longer legs. Longer legs requires a longer seat to ensure that your thighs will fit properly across the entire length of the seat without a lot of extra room between the back of your knees and the edge of the seat. Some high end chair manufacturers such as ErgoCentric Seating have a special upgrade option that allows the user to choose a longer seat of 21 inches deep. Another great way to solve the problem of having a seat that is too short is to look for chairs that have a seat slider option. A seat slider allows the user to adjust the depth of the chair by pulling up on a lever generally located underneath the front of the seat. When this lever is pulled up, you can then bring the chair forward or back to make the seat either longer or shorter depending on your needs.
A quality made leather chair will be designed to last a long time. The chair you choose should have a solid frame, secure stitching, sturdy hardware, and other well-designed construction details. You’ll also want to look for a chair that has a nice leather finish. It’s important to make sure the chair is made from actual leather, not a simulated material. If you see the term \"leather-faced\" mentioned, this means that while the surface you sit on is made from leather, other portions of the chair may be covered with other materials. While there are certainly quality-made leather-faced chairs on the market, these chairs should be priced lower than a chair that is completely surfaced in leather. Before you buy, make sure you know what you are paying for.
Recliners these days can have all kinds of options installed. Heat, massage, rockers, swivel. . . even mini-fridges if you want to get real fancy! Just remember that the more options you have, the more there is to go wrong. Sometimes sticking with a timeless style will suit you better than having the newest thing the chair engineers can come up with.
