Looking for a mesh office chair but I don't want to spend more than $500. Any suggestions? Looking for something like a Herman Miller, Steelcase, Knoll, etc. Thanks.

My office has these chairs and I hate them! My back hurts so much every day (and I'm only 24). I'm also not the only one in my office to complain about them. I feel like they have no back support.

Might have to drop some money on one of these, but pretty sure it would get stolen in a sec at the office.

In Office no doubt heavy weight professionals as you know what i want to convey, so comfortable office chairs for heavy people is today's need. Always concern with interior designer before buying office chairs as better to get most hi-tech comfortable office chairs, thus reduces the employers back pain.

I like Herman Miller brand but you can use recliner chair also which price is below under 500 dollar because I use it for my back problem.

When I suffered for my back pain helped me to solve my back problem.

Go to Staples or Officemax and actually sit in some. Most of them are under $200. And they regularly have sales.

I prefer a recliner office chair because it helps me to relieve my lower back pain and also reduces body aches.

If you have back issues or are into ergonomic shit, check this out:
tbh I'd spring for the one with a foot ring if I bought it again

This is good too:


Look at all these wannabe richies hating on an expensive salad.

+1 on the Capisco. I don't have it as a daily chair in the office but I've sat in them for long periods of time and it's a noticeable improvement from a traditional chair. This is also coming from someone who suffers from moderate lower back pain.

There are many brands of mesh office chairs are available on the market such as MDL Furniture, Sihoo, Modway, NKV, TOPSKY etc.

I've been in the market for a new desk chair for months and subsequently have done too much research. My top 3 criteria was as follows:

  1. Affordability
  2. Comfort
  3. Style

I considered the top brands you mentioned like Herman Miller and Steelcase, but the affordability factor just wasn't there. I also looked at some budget chairs on Amazon, but I found many reviews questioning their comfortability and overall design quality.

Ultimately, I landed on the "MyoChair" by Autonomous. If you're on Facebook I bet you have seen one of their ads for a standing desk, but they make some pretty nice chairs too. This chair met all of my criteria. It's definitely budget friendly @ $139, it's damn comfortable, and I think it looks pretty stylish (I went with the cool gray color). You can spend a little extra and add on a headrest and leg rest, but I don't do much "lounging around" in my home office.

The only downside is they do charge for shipping, but overall I think there's still good value in their products. You can offset shipping by purchasing through this link. You should save $15 on a $100 purchase and $25 on a $200 purchase. The discount increases based on how much you spend.

I was initially considering their "ErgoChair 2" but couldn't justify spending an extra $200 without purchasing from Autonomous before. After trying out the "MyoChair" I think I might upgrade to the ErgoChair in the future, but we will see.
