Many Types of Office Furniture Chairs
When it comes to office furniture chairs, there are a large variety of styles available, it just depends upon what the chair is needed for, where it will go, and how it will be used. Lets take a look at some of the styles available, and when they are needed.
The most common of the office furniture chairs, and are found in offices around the world, are basic task chairs. These are best used by any office worker who sits at a desk with a computer. Many are ergonomic, and they can be adjusted in a multitude of ways, which allows them to fit most body sizes. They also come in a wide range of prices, so you can find one to fit any budget.
Executive office chairs are similar to a task chair, just a little more deluxe and expensive. They look more luxurious, and this is reflected in the price if it is a top of the line chair. These are normally used by CEO's and other executives (as the name implies).
Drafting or medical stools are specialized office furniture chairs. You can get them either with or without a back. They do place the user up higher, making them good for working on a drafting table. Being stools, the height is naturally adjustable. This is good for doctors and dentists, who may find this feature really helpful.
Student chairs are smaller computer type office furniture chairs that are not designed for sitting in for a very long time. They are smaller than task chairs and are less adjustable. They are also usually a lot less expensive. They definitely serve a purpose in the office chair market, but are not good if you have to spend a lot of time at your desk or computer.
Guest chairs or lounge chairs also serve an important purpose in many offices. Any type of office with a waiting room or reception area needs chairs for clients, customers or patients to sit in while they wait to see whomever they need to see. A nice and comfortable reception chair in an equally nice reception area is important because it is the first impression that person receives, and can subconsciously influence their opinion of your business. These chairs are padded, are either leather, faux leather or have a nice cloth upholstery, and have nice legs. There are no wheels. All the chairs in this area should match, and you may also have matching couches. The quality of chair should be a reflection of your office and what you do.
Break room chairs are needed for employees during their breaks. Some basic, functional chairs around tables are good, as well as some more comfortable chairs so that employees can relax are a great idea.
If you are an office manager, or own a company, then you know that there are a variety of styles of office furniture chairs that are needed, just make sure that you are properly furnished, and have the correct chairs to perform their correct function.
