    Get it from Wayfair for $158.99 (originally $229; available in 14 colors).

    Promising review: "Due to precautionary measures being taken by my organization, I needed to set up a desk at the house in a short period of time. Assembled in under 15 minutes and was happy to not have to sit on my dining room chair. Super sturdy, quiet, and comfortable." —John D.

    Get it from Wayfair for $198.49+ (available in three colors).

    3. A computer chair with an adjustable headrest, padded seat, and lumbar pillow so comfortable, you'll be sad to get out of it at the end of the day. It even comes with a built-in hanger for your jacket.

    Promising review: "The chair is so comfortable. The seat is plushy and conforms to your bottom perfectly, the same material is used for the armrest, which I also find very comfortable. The backside mesh is perfect for leaning back and since it’s mesh, your back can still breathe, even after sitting on it for hours. I also love the hanger attached to the back, I had never seen something like that before and it has already become handy plenty of times." —Robin Boudard

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A fuzzy chair that'll make you feel like you're sitting on a lil' cloud.

    Promising review: "I am really enjoying my chair! It’s very soft and comfortable! It was easy to assemble." —Paige

    Get it from Wayfair for $149.99 (originally $264; available in three colors)

    5. A race car-style gaming chair you actually won't mind sitting in all day long — so go head, make some ~vroom~ for it.

    The armrests can be left down or flipped up, and it's equipped with tilt lock and tilt tension control functions.

    Promising review: "Started working from home in March and had a very basic cheap chair. Started to hurt sitting for eight hours a day so I added a thick cushion which helped for a couple of weeks, but then it no longer did. Decided to pull the trigger on a gaming chair since they are designed to be sat in for several hours straight, and I'm so happy I did! My tush doesn't hurt anymore after sitting for several hours and my back doesn't feel strained either. Highly recommend for anyone setting up a new home office." —Wayfair Shopper

    Get it from Wayfair for $172.99 (available in four colors).

    6. A fancy upholstered office chair that'll be ~tuft~ to say no to — it'll help you nail that luxe farmhouse look.

    Target

    Promising review: "I purchased this chair when I began working at home. It is actually the third desk chair that I tried and it is a keeper. After sitting in it 10 hours a day, my back does not hurt. It has good support, is really soft and comfortable, and is of high quality. It moves side to side and up and down. If you want a chair with no arms, this is a good buy. The gray color was exactly as pictured and the legs look really nice with the whitewashed wood look." —Jaime

    Get it from Target for $289.99 (available in nine colors).

    7. An armless vinyl chair for a comfortable option that looks more expensive than it is.

    Promising review: "Very pleased and surprised at the quality of this chair! It was easy to assemble and it's nicely padded with a wide seat and back. For a home office desk chair, this is perfect. Both my husband and I are comfortable in it and we're two different heights and sizes. It's hard to find a reasonably priced desk chair withOUT wheels, and I would highly recommend this one." —yoda

    Get it from Amazon for $87.62.

    You can also recline in this chair.

    Promising review: "I upgraded from one of those bucket 'gamer' seats and this is by far the best upgrade I've made yet. As soon as I sat down, I felt immediate relief on my back and knew I made a great purchase. Also, the wheels glide like a cloud on my laminate floor and it's extremely satisfying — they make no noise whatsoever." —Aaron

    Get it from Amazon for $289.99.

    14. A padded executive chair that'll make you feel like an actual boss while you're sitting in it. It's also great for spinning around dramatically and saying, "I've been expecting you."

    Wayfair

    The chair offers tilt lock and tension control so you can find the best reclining position.

    Promising review: "This is a supremely comfortable chair. It was very easy to assemble, took maybe 20 minutes. It’s sturdy and supportive, particularly in the lower back, which is great for me. It glides very smoothly across hardwood, and the adjustable recline tension makes it easy to lean back comfortably. Highly recommend." —Nick

    Get it from Wayfair for $266.99 (originally $330; available in two colors).

    15. An incredibly cool Avengers massage gaming chair both you and your family will marvel at.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Purchased as a Christmas present. It was easy to assemble and had all the parts in the box. Beautiful detail. Leather is soft and colors are brilliant not faded. Lower back massage panel is an added bonus. Seat is nice and wide and allows for fuller legs so your lower leg circulation doesn't get cut off. Adjustable arms allow for comfort. Wheels roll nicely on tile. Highly recommend!" —LLB

    Get it on Amazon for $228.98 (available in seven styles).

    16. A chair with memory foam seat and arms that's as cozy (and stylish) as your fave armchair — except it has wheels and can rotate 360 degrees.

    Get it from AllModern for $240 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "This chair looks like real leather and is SO comfortable!! I was unsure how it was going to be, but it has exceeded my expectations!! Another perk is that it looks way more expensive than it is :)." —Rebecca B.

    Get it from Overstock for $107.34.

    18. A basic, no-frill task chair you basically can't go wrong with — the lack of handles makes it possible for you sit cross-legged.

    The chair in burgundy
    Wayfair

    Promising review: "This chair is great! I was shopping around for a chair for my new desk, and I didn't want a black leather corporate-looking chair. However, I'm a guy with an average build, and I was concerned that this chair would be a bit on the smaller side. I was wrong! The chair has a nice premium feel to it, looks great in my apartment, and has a super comfortable seat. It was just what I was looking for! Also it was super easy to assemble, took me less than 15 minutes doing this alone." —Nic

    Get it from Wayfair for $62.99 (originally $160.01; available in 15 colors).

    19. A leather office chair that can recline up to a 155-degree angle! Buy this with caution because it's so comfortable, you might just fall asleep while working. (Pssst. It even has a retractable footrest!)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a terrific chair! It was very easy to put together, and I am not an expert at such tasks. The chair is very comfortable, the footrest unfolds easily and works well, the lumbar support is very good. The Cadillac of office chairs!" —Barbara

    Promising review: "I love this chair! It's beautiful and rolls nicely. The quality is great and the velvet is very soft and actually matches my velvet sofa. The gold is also a very nice shiny metallic color that is hard to find these days for this price." —Crystal H.

    This chair features tilt control and adjustable arms.

    Promising review: "This chair was a little more than I had planned to spend but so far it is well worth it. Easy to put together. Excellent back support. Strong, sturdy cushion. It looks great in our small home office as well. I am really glad I spent the extra money for such great quality." —Overstock Customer

    Get it from Overstock for $167.19.

    22. A mid-century modern chair with a padded seat to make it a lot more comfy than your average dining chair. If you're looking for dining chairs that can double as desk chairs — look no further.

    Get it from Overstock for $246.99.

    24. A drafting chair for anyone who uses an elevated work surface (like a drafting table or standing desk). The footrest ring makes it easier to relax since your legs won't be dangling in the air.

    The chair in grey
    Overstock

    Promising review: "This chair was much more comfortable than the picture gives tribute to! The lumbar support fits me very well. The seat is a memory foam–feel and has plenty of wiggle room for my stature. Smooth working hydraulic. The tops of each armrest is cushioned as well, which is nice for elbow-pushers like myself! I do wish there were an adjustment or multi-lock position on these, as my height makes them feel a little low. The foot rail is very sturdy and made of metal. It is also adjustable. Very smooth-rolling and a perfect addition to my sewing space!" —Overstock Customer

    Get it from Overstock for $182.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. A computer chair you can customize in just about every way — you can adjust the height of the back, seat, and arms, as well as the angle and tilt resistance. Plus, it comes in a variety of bright colors to brighten up your WFH space.

    The chair in blue
    Wayfair

    Promising review: "It was a bit of gamble to buy a chair online without trying and paying for international shipping. Luckily it's a bingo after a long search! Very comfortable, the right size, curves, firmness, armrests, adjustments, great back support for me. Well-manufactured without short cuts. Stylish, nice cheerful color, smart and ergonomic construction. Happy with this purchase." —Natalie

    Get it from Wayfair for $154.99 (originally $154.99; available in 10 colors).

The color and style of the chair really fits the aesthetic of my room and makes it have a more modern feel. I would recommend this chair to anyone who wants something that combines both good looks and comfort!" —Debra
