My Search for the
Perfect Ergonomic Leather Office Chair
I agree, an ergonomics leather office chair simply looks better than PVC ones. Ergonomic leather office chairs just provide a little more style and more luxury. You're spending more than half your day sitting in that chair, why not go for the best?
So I had a browse around, and found pages filled with absolutely every imaginable design of ergonomic leather office chairs.
Firstly, not all of them are ergonomic. Just one look at the chair's armrest is enough to tell you that it is not ergonomic. It restricts you, you won't be able to sit closer to the desk.
Don't fall for marketing ploys by companies who simply label their office chairs "ergonomic".
The Hunt For An Ergonomic Leather Office Chair
To be honest, I was a little sad when I first studied ergonomics. In my mind, those French style study desks (those with the horse legs) and French country chairs that I was hoping to buy for my new home office were fast fading.
The more I read about the harms of working on a laptop, bad ergonomic designed desktops and chairs, even on your dining table and the associated risks of computer injuries, the more resolute I had become on an entirely ergonomic home. It added conflict to my penchant for style.
But what if I could find ergonomic computer furniture that had a better, more 'vintage' or a sexier design?
I decided on ergonomic leather office chairs. They make so much of a difference! They just look so much better.
But then, with my knowledge of Ergonomics, not every leather office chair fits my ergonomic standards...so it has to pass my minimum requirements as well. I have become a very demanding customer.
My ergonomic office chair has to:

This definitely exceeds my expectations. It also meets (and exceeds) ANSI/BIFMA standards.
According to the website sitbetter.com that sells this chair, it is currently on sale $619.00

What an interesting color for an office chair. Of course, they come in traditional black too.

Executive Leather Office Chair With Headrest
Summary of its features
- Top Grain Leather
- Adjustable Armrests
- Adjustable Seat Height
- 2-to-1 Synchro Tilt Back.
- Tilt Tension and Lock Controls.
It was really tough to find an executive ergonomic leather chair. I was on the lookout for a simple looking black executive office chair. Most of the shopping options looked like 'Big Bosses' Chairs but they all had very rigid features. I even looked into whether I could screw the armrests off, because most of them are at an unacceptable height.
Anyway, I've concluded that sitbetter.com is one of the best websites to find chairs meeting and exceeding high ergonomic standards.
I found this chair with a head rest, but there are other options without too, if a mid back chair is more your thing.
