Tall Office Chairs
Choosing an office chair can be an overwhelming task. The market is full of different types so how do you know which one best meets your needs? Don’t purchase a desk chair without considering these five fabulous reasons to love tall office chairs.
1. Be Large and In Charge
First impressions matter. While a low chair may sit close to the ground and look less than stately, tall chairs, which are commonly used by executives, make a sophisticated and professional impression.
Particularly if you have a large office — or want to look like the type of executive who has one — a tall office chair can help you appear as a more authoritative figure to employees, coworkers and customers.
The old expression goes, “Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.” The same applies to decorating your office: the more impressive the chair, the more impressive the person in the chair.
2. Support Your Seat
Recent statistics indicates that the average office worker spends 10 percent of his/her life — or five years out of their career lives — sitting down. A different way to look at it? If you work in an office, you may be sitting for up to 24 hours in a single week.
Research has shown that sitting at your desk for long periods of time can have a detrimental effect on your mental and physical help, but these effects can be mitigated by tall chairs. How? Tall chairs, also known as high back chairs, offer essential support for your head, neck and upper-back. And the longer you’re sitting, the more important this support is.
On busy days when you can’t get up, walk around, and stretch, high back chairs are designed to support your upper body and prevent strain related to head positioning. If possible, seek out a tall chair with a headrest for the ultimate in support. High back chairs can even help prevent eye strain by encouraging proper head positioning!
3. A Positive Posture
Hunching, slumping, slouching and other tired postures can lead to back problems. Poor posture, meanwhile, has been connected to everything from tension-related stress to migraines. By offering the right amount of support in the upright position, high chairs encourage proper posture. But the effects aren’t just physical: proper posture can also help you feel more alert.
And when it comes to finding that “just right” position, most high back chairs offer a desirable amount of adjustability.
4. Love Your Job
High back chairs are known to be more comfortable. And the more comfortable you are, the more productive you’ll be. While money can’t buy happiness, a high back chair is an investment in your professional career.
While aesthetics matter when it comes time to choose your office furniture, comfort matters more. Tall office chairs offer an amazing blend of both at a price that may surprise you.
