How to Choose a Chair
Design Your Own Chair
By customising your office chair design, you can create a cohesive and stylish home office or workplace. Design the seat type, base style and back support for your office chair as well as mixing and matching colours and adding armrests. You’ll find the best ergonomic chair designs at Officeworks.
Creating a comfortable and productive workspace
The time we spend at our desks shouldn’t be a drag and it shouldn’t impact negatively on our health. Finding a setup that’s both comfortable and healthy for you and your body starts with the right chair. Take into account how many consecutive hours you’ll be using your workstation, what kind of desk you’ll be pairing it with, and your preferred style for your space. Wherever those preferences lead you, you can be sure Officeworks has the right chair for you.

An ergonomic chair is designed to support your body throughout the working day. To help you avoid pain and complications as a result of sitting, ergonomic chairs are highly adjustable, with multiple supports to keep you comfortable. Many ergonomic chairs offer adjustable seat tilt, seat height, as well as armrests, so you can create a comfortable configuration for all-day use.Shop Now
Gaming chairs are specifically designed to help you perform at your best during intense gameplay. You’ll find plenty of support and cushioning – features like high backs and headrests, wrist and lumbar (lower back) support. You’ll also have the ability to adjust most, if not all, of these things, so your chair can be customised to you and your body type. For a little added atmosphere, they often have a racing-inspired aesthetic – perfect for pairing with a similarly sporty-looking gaming desk.
Desk chairs are your everyday option, suitable for a few hours of sitting at a time. While they may not offer the same level of adjustability as ergonomic or gaming chairs, they are ideal for casual use. If you use your workstation for a few hours at a time rather than for a full day, or if you’re the kind of person who regularly switches between sitting and standing, this might be a great choice for you.
Ergonomic chairs give you a wide range of adjustable elements. Look out for these features when you’re shopping the range.
Adjustable Back Rest
You can change up the angle of the backrest tilt throughout the day to reduce the pressure on your spine. Changing the back tilt can also help you find the angle of optimum comfort for viewing your screen.
The right seat height ensures your neck is not craning or bending while you view your screens or write. It should also allow you to place your feet flat on the floor comfortably. We’re not all the same height and don’t have the same leg lengths, this one is essential in almost any chair in your workspace.
Adjusting the seat tilt helps you correct your posture, by encouraging a more supportive seating position. It can help to reduce pressure on your back muscles and spine, reducing strain and future pain.
Supporting your arms and shoulders can be just as important as supporting your spine. Avoid shoulder tension with armrests that suit your height and your arm length. Some armrests are even padded for even further support.
Things to Consider
Keep these things in mind while you’re picking your perfect chair
Some chairs are built for all-day comfort, while others might be for more short-term use. Always look for the recommended use time in the Features section to determine if the chair is right for your usage style. Some chairs in our range can easily accommodate 8 hours and above, so you can be sure you’re catered for.
To see if a chair is right for you, take a look at the weight capacity. Our range encompasses different weight limits and seat sizes for a range of individual bodies – so you can find one that suits you and keeps you comfortable!
Is it AFRDI?
The AFRDI Certification system helps to ensure your chair meets a high level of safety, durability, and ergonomics. If you need assurance that your chair is up to the rigours of frequent use, picking an AFRDI-certified chair is a good plan.
For ultimate peace of mind, be sure to check the warranty of your chair. Many of our chairs come with up to 10 years of cover, so you can be assured of their quality and durability.
Accessories to Consider
Complete your setup with some added enhancements for your comfort and safety.
Protect your flooring and yourself with a chair mat. Chair mats can minimize the risk of slipping, as well as ensuring that your hard surfaces remain scratch-free and that your carpet stays free of damage.
Lower back pain is a very common complaint in those who sit all day. Lumbar – or lower-back – support is one way to alleviate this pain. These supports can be added to your existing chair to help you maintain healthy posture and reduce your chance of strains.
Similar to lumbar supports, footrests help to support your back whilst reducing strain on your feet and legs. A footrest can be a good way of supporting your legs if the chair is too high.
