Give Your Back a Break With Our Favorite Office Chairs

Not every chair is a winner. Here are a few others we like enough to recommend, but they’re not as good as our top picks above. 

Fully Alani for $379: The Alani, from the maker of our favorite standing desk, comes in a few color combos that blend neatly into any home office. There’s a nice contoured cushion on the base and a mesh back to keep you cool, plus lumbar support for good posture. You can adjust the height, seat depth, armrests, recline tension, and can lock the recline. WIRED reviewer Simon Hill found it comfy for long days of up to 16 hours, and it worked for both his 6’1″ self and 5′ daughter. It’s a solid alternative to the Branch Ergonomic Chair (our top pick), but it’s a smidge more expensive. 

Ikea Markus for $269: The Markus is a perfectly fine office chair. It’s not the most comfortable, but it’s far from the worst. The mesh design keeps you cool, and the tall back lets you fully lean into it. It’s rather thin and isn’t obtrusive in a small home office or bedroom. It was annoying to put together—you might need someone to hold up the back of the chair while you properly attach the seat. Unfortunately, if you often sit with at least one leg up or crisscrossed, the width between the arms will make you uncomfortable.
