Office Chair Options


A variety of options are available for office chairs, including:

The standard option for office chair upholstery, fabric is great for people who want a reliable look available in a variety of colors and patterns. Fabric is often a top choice for offices and institutions that want a uniform look throughout a space.

Mesh chairs are modern furnishings that give the office space a new, different look and feel than more traditional office furniture. Mesh upholstery comes in two forms:

Padded Mesh
A padded mesh chair will have an appearance similar to that of a fabric or leather office chair, but will feel different to the touch than fabric or leather will. Padded mesh is coarser than leather and is most similar to fabric. Padded mesh chairs have thick padding wrapped in mesh upholstery.

Unpadded Mesh
Unpadded mesh is more of a departure from a typical office chair than padded mesh. An unpadded mesh chair is characterized by tightly woven mesh with no padding and will stretch and shape depending on the weight and shape of the user in the chair. Unpadded mesh chairs are considered comfortable because of its contouring properties as well as its breathability due to lack of padding.

For many, leather is an attractive option for office chairs because of its sleek look and comfortable feel. Many view leather as a prestigious material, and therefore it’s a top choice in offices, particularly for executives. Office chairs upholstered with leather are available in a variety of colors, the most common of which being black.

There are a few different forms of leather that are commonly used for office chairs:

Top Grain Leather
Top grain leather, like its name implies, is high quality leather. Top grain leather is derived from the outer layer of the cowhide and is durable, workable, and soft to the touch. Top grain leather is the first choice for office chairs due to its comfort level. If a chair is to be used for more than a few hours at a time, top grain leather is the right choice for the chair.

Glove Soft Leather
Glove soft leather is a subset of top grain leather that refers to leather that is particularly soft. Glove soft leather gets its name because it’s typically used in gloves, though some high-end office furniture employs glove soft leather as well.

Split Leather
Split leather is lower quality leather that tends to be coarse to the touch and difficult to work with. It’s not recommended that split leather, which originates from the fleshy underside of the cowhide, be used for anything that will be used as one’s exclusive seat.

Vinyl is a synthetic material that looks like leather but lacks the softness that leather gains with age. Vinyl is extremely easy to clean and is smooth to the touch. Vinyl is commonly used in lower-end office chairs.

Polypropylene is a plastic-like material commonly used in high-traffic areas such as computer labs and industrial environments. Polypropylene is extremely easy to clean and is difficult to break.
