Wooden Office Chairs

Office Chair Features A comfortable office chair needs to provide excellent support to the sitter’s back. This promotes good posture and ensures the long-term health of the back. The user is going to be sitting at the chair for hours at a time. The chair needs to provide good support, but it also needs to be comfortable. Make sure the office chair is well padded and has comfortable fabric. All people are different. Some people may enjoy sitting back a bit while others like to sit in a straight vertical position. Provide users with options by purchasing adjustable office chairs. Will your workers benefit from a chair that promotes motion? Consider purchasing chairs with wheels on the bottom in case workers need to move around different areas of the office. In addition, swivel office chairs further promote mobility and convenience of use. Consider purchasing chairs with adjustable arm rests. Depending on the height of the worker’s desk, the user may enjoy the ability to adjust where he rests his arms on the seat.

When it comes to vintage office chairs, let’s be honest, it’s hard to know who’s really got your back. And maybe it’s just us, but when you consider that a vintage office chair is going to spend up to eight hours a day hugging your backside, you want it to be a chair you trust. Likewise, a vintage office chair that’s fine for the office—we’re looking at you style-less ergonomic chair with the heart of gold!—might not cut it in your carefully edited abode. What’s a working girl to do?

While the company is, of course, recognizable for its additions to residential spaces (hello, Tulip Table!), Florence Knoll created Knoll’s Planning Unit, a committee that specialized in office space planning and yes, vintage office chairs. An acronym-heavy roster of clients included IBM, CBS, and GM. Likewise, Knoll employed a number of makers to design office furniture. Below are the Knoll designers who did it best.

If you already associated Herman Miller with office furniture because of their omnipresent molded fiberglass Eames chair, consider us impressed. While the standard, molded Eames chairs are part of the brand’s residential lines, they do, of course, work perfectly when paired up with a plank-style desk. If the standard Eames chair isn’t your style; however, don’t fret—no one does the vintage office chair quite like Herman Miller.

We love any company that promotes a workday full of Margaritaville color. Founded in 1912, Steelcase began experimenting with color early on, introducing office sets in colors like flame, cordovan (that’s a burgundy rose), and bamboo in the 1950s. Meanwhile, installations in famed office buildings like Frank Lloyd Wright’s S.C. Johnson Wax Building in Wisconsin and Chicago’s Sears Tower bolstered their office cred.

In the 1950s, following the success of their molded chairs, Ray and Charles Eames were challenged to design outdoor seating. The result was the Aluminum Group series. While the chair from that series, the Aluminum Group Chair, features a long, languid caterpillar profile (complete with segmented upholstery), the Soft Pad Lounger comes off like its more-buttoned, polished-up cousin. With a slightly straighter sit and wider segments that appear to have been pumped full of air, these chairs absolutely exude comfort. And when it comes to the grind, who doesn’t want that?

While Steelcase has continued to innovate the office chair into the new millennium, it’s their original 430 Chair, introduced in 1974, that still captivates us most. Identifiable by the tagline “The chair that loves people,” the 430 was a precursor to the ergonomic chairs that dominate the market today. While the chair’s focus was comfort contouring, we can’t get over the bold colored upholstery they sport. Indeed, this chair is a literal manifestation of how 4:30 on a Friday feels.
