Think about how many hours a day you spend sitting in an office chair. The kind of chair you pick will make a difference, so it is important to look at the features in each type to determine which one is best for your lifestyle.
Swivel Desk Chairs
A swivel chair, also known as a task chair, will provide you with basic swivel and height adjustment functions. The height can be adjusted by pushing down on the lever below the seat. Swivel chairs usually have caster bases, which allow for smooth and easy movement. They are usually light weight, which is ideal if you plan on moving the desk chair around frequently.
Swivel desk chairs are found everywhere, from corporate offices, to school computer labs, to home offices. You will find some with armrests, some with high backs, and some with a combination of both.
Many swivel chairs are made with mesh materials, providing a wide variety of color choices. So for instance, if you are looking for a bold red office chair that has basic adjustment and comfort features, this may be a good option to look into.

Executive Desk Chairs
Executive office chairs are extremely comfortable and have a very high-end look. They are typically made of leather and are usually more substantial in weight than swivel chairs.
A nice leather executive chair can have the style of a sofa chair, with plush cushions and plenty of room to sit comfortably. It usually has a deep seat, making it easy to sit in for hours at a time. Many executive chairs have wood bases with casters, which provide a nicer finish. Most of them have normal height adjustment functions. Some even have headrests for added comfort.

Ergonomic Desk Chairs
Ergonomic desk chairs are ideal if you are looking for the most support. They provide support for the head, neck, and lower back. This will probably be the most comfortable office chair for you if you spend long hours at your desk or have back pain. The design will also help you keep good posture without straining any muscles.
Ergonomic office chairs come with all different features and comfort levels, so you can determine which is best for you based on your lifestyle. You will find that some have more back support than others, and some have more adjustment options. These chairs come in a variety of materials, colors, and styles.
