Recommendations - home office chair

Working more from home, so settling up new workstation.

Getting desk from Ikea, but struggling with a good chair. I have back problems, so need good support.

Anybody have any good recommendations? Looking to spend max of 200.

Thanks

If you can stretch your 200 - and if you got back problem then for the sake of a few more quid I'd get the La-z-boy office chair. They're in Costco stores so you can try before you buy...

Speak to CazuaLUK about the Omega GT Office Chairs.
Depends if you want a race seat look or a more subtle office chair.

*Ive not got an Omega GT chair (Yet), but reviews are good and planning on getting one in the near future.

That looks a good chair for the price and decently compact too. Comfy?

If you're designated working from home then you'll likely have to do a HR home worker assessment, if you haven't already. Desk height, monitor, lighting etc and most certainly seating.

From that a lot of companies will then fund required equipment, basically gets them out of any future liability.

If you are going to spend significant time per week in a chair, then you may want look at something more specific such as herman miller. Not saying any of the others are not suitable, just generally HM and it's competitors go through a more rigorous certification process.

May be an option if your employer is going to help or fully fund something.

As with all things on this forum, you set a budget and someone comes along and says, if you only spent a little more you could have this nice and shiny thing.....

I, too, have an IKEA Markus chair. I have a non-leather variant for my gaming PC. It's very comfy and I find the mesh back with lumbar support to be cool and comfortable for longer sessions. Height and tilt adjustable to get a really nice seating position. I don't use the arms on mine as I also use the chair when I play my guitars.

I would fully recommend one if you are stuck with a tighter budget (god knows I was).

I have the leather one and it's comfy for me, adjustable and very sturdy. Great quality for the price.
