Inspect the Chair Every 6 Months - Just like any other piece of machinery that gets used often, screws and bolts can become loose as time progresses. In order to avoid accidents, such as a chair collapsing or a part giving out, you should inspect your chair at least once every 6 months to make sure all parts and components of the chair are tightened. Look for defective casters/wheels, loose securing bolts, loose arms, broken mechanism, and evidence of cracks on the base of the chair from stress. If any of these parts are broken, contact your furniture dealer to see if these parts are under warranty. As aforementioned, if your chair has a good warranty, you should be able to get these replacement parts shipped to you for free.
Before you go out and purchase a chair, you must decide on a style, color palate, size and where you will place it. A tiny chair in a huge space can seem lost. Massive chairs in an already overcrowded room will just add to the feeling of clutter.
When you look for any chair with moving parts, go to a showroom and try it out first. Does the mechanism move smoothly, without any grinding or bumps? How difficult is it to move? Be sure to sit in the chair the way you will at home. Check the comfort, the level of the headrest, and move the footrest and any other moveable parts. Since moving parts get more wear than the rest of the chair, you want to be sure they’ll hold up to use.
The first step towards finding your ultimate ergonomic office chair is to figure out the dimensions needed to accommodate your body size. First, determine the seat depth(length of the seat) that will be required for your new chair. This is a crucial step because a chair that is too long will put pressure on the back of your knees and a chair that is too short may not fully support your legs. A good way to determine your ideal seat depth is to turn towards your current office chair; if your current seat depth already works for you then make sure your new chair will have the same seat measurements. If it is too long, look for a chair with a smaller seat depth and vice versa if your chair’s seat is too short. If you prefer a softer sit while working look for a chair that offers seat foam upgrades such as a gel seat or triple density foam otherwise some chairs come standard with an extra thick seat.
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.
