I’ve been reviewing the best office chairs available for a few years now. And I’ve come to the conclusion that not all the super expensive chairs are worth your hard-earned money – but many of the cheaper options are. So I’ve put together this list of quality chairs that come without the premium price tag.

After recently reviewing the best ergonomic office chair that money can buy (the Herman Miller Embody, if you’re asking), I was struck by what you have to give up, ergonomics-wise, when you go for a budget option. TL:DR – not always a huge amount. Will you get the quality leather finish, or the state of the art adjustability? No. But you can get plenty for a little, and I’m talking under $300!
