There's a good chance you've given more consideration to your mattress than to your seat. That's all right! It is important to get enough sleep. However, if you spend several hours a day at your desk —more than five— it's a good idea to pay more attention to the type of chair you have. 

It's not just about finding a cool office chair; the proper materials can help disperse your body heat, and there are plenty of adjustment options to help you customize a chair to your needs. We've reviewed 18 cool office chairs for your modern office below.

18 Stylish and Cool Office Chair Designs for Modern Offices

1. ErgoChair Pro

ErgoChair Pro cool office chair

Autonomous is well-known for manufacturing economical, high-quality motorized standing desks, but very few people are aware of its extensive office product line. 

The ErgoChair Pro (ErgoChair 2) is a near-perfect option for anyone with back problems or who needs to sit for long periods daily. At this price, you can’t find a better office chair, and we highly suggest it.

2. ErgoChair Pro+

With a price tag of just over $400, the Autonomous ErgoChair Pro+ (or Kinn Chair) is the most expensive office chair by Autonomous, but it is still considered to be the most affordable option on the market. 

Its thick, fabric-padded seat is deemed to be the most cushioned and comfy writing desk chair than any of the others in our survey. The cotton material and mesh back work together by providing back support without smothering your body. 

Furthermore, the adjustable lumbar support, which is made of the same soft fabric as the seat, will be appreciated by anyone who has back problems. 

3. Branch Ergonomic Chair

Branch Ergonomic Chair

A unique desk chair can be adjusted in many ways. This is where Branch's Ergonomic Chair shines. It's surprisingly simple to put together in minutes (the directions are great), and there are numerous little adjustments you can make. 

The armrest can be pushed back and forth; the recliner can be locked, and the lumbar support can be altered. It achieves all of this while maintaining a sleek appearance and charges a reasonable price.

4. FlexFit Hyken Mesh Chair

During huge sale events, it's usually available for just $170, making it one of the most affordable office ergonomic chairs available. It's comfortable, with a breathable mesh fabric covering the back and seat, and it's built to last. A headrest and lumbar support are also included. 

Some consumers say that its mesh can compress a little after years of continuous sitting, but it can still be comfortable. However, if you need a wider seat, this may not be the best solution. 

5. X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt Chair

X-Chair X2 K-Sport cool office chair

Thick foam chairs are notorious for trapping body heat, especially in the summer. That is why many are fans of the X-Chair. It not only has a mesh backrest, but also a mesh seat, which allows for good airflow. It also gives the impression of being in a hammock. What person doesn’t want that? 

Every aspect of your body is well supported, and almost everything on the chair can be adjusted. Pull the seat up and angle the armrests in or out by pushing them up, down, or side to side. The office chair lumbar support is cushion-like and adjusts as you move around in your seat. 

6. Herman Miller Embody

It may take a week or two (or maybe a month) to adjust to the Herman Miller Embody, but it will be well worth the effort. The chair’s upright position can support your back well and alleviate any pain.  

Herman’s seat is stiff at first, but it soon becomes surprisingly cushiony, and the armrests are firm. This unique desk chair works well in removing heat from your body, but not as well as mesh backrests and chairs. It's one of the most customizable chairs on the market: you can pull out the seat, modify the height, angle the armrests, and tune the backfit adjustment to follow the natural curve of your spine. 

7. QOR360 The Ariel

QOR360 The Ariel cool office chair

You might be asking why a stool with no backrest is an ideal "chair" for your back. That's because the QOR360 focuses on your pelvic sit bones to keep your posture upright. 

The stool's base rocks back and forth, causing your body to shift during the day, but most importantly, it makes you want to get up and exercise. While this may appear to be a bad thing, moving is one of the most effective strategies to counteract the negative effects of sitting in a chair all day long. 

8. Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Series

The majority of leather gaming chairs have been designed to resemble race cars. Most of the chairs above would work better, but if you're looking for something unique, the Secretlab Titan Evo is perfect for the home office. Durability and adaptability are where this cool computer chair distinguishes itself from similarly priced competitors. Because of the amount of flexibility it provides, it's comfy for long gaming sessions (particularly lumbar support). 

It's a lovely touch that the headrest pillow is magnetic and that it stays attached to the chair. The hard cold cure foam, on the other hand, molds to your body and may not be suitable for everyone. This material also doesn't handle heat well, and it can get quite hot on your lower back. 

9. Pipersong Meditation Chair

Pipersong Meditation cool office chair

Do you have trouble sitting normally? If you need your legs to be bent and twisted to feel comfortable, the Pipersong is for you. This cool office chair comes with a 360-degree swiveling footstool that can be adjusted to almost any sitting position. 

From kneeling to cross-legged to one leg up, one leg down, it can do it all. It's also possible to sit with your feet flat on the floor and the footstool behind you. This is the only modern office chair we've found that considers unusual sitting habits. 

10. Herman Miller Aeron

The traditional Aeron is the unique desk chair of choice in many offices for a reason: it's long-lasting, supportive, and light. The Aeron is available in three sizes—A, B, and C—and you can adjust almost everything about the chair to fit your physique. Arms, seat depth, and lumbar support are all included. 

However, we don't recommend spending a lot of money on a brand-new Aeron. There's a strong possibility you'll be able to locate one for much cheaper at a local furniture store, on eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. You may also get lucky and get a free Aeron after a local office closes down. 

11. SIHOO Ergonomic Office Chair

SIHOO Ergonomic Office Chair

Firstly, it's incredibly comfy to sit on, with a robust mesh back and lumbar support. Plus, everything about this cool office chair can be adjusted, from the armrests to the height to the tilt level. 

Although the build quality and materials used aren't quite up to par with chairs costing five times as much, this is a pretty respectable entry at the cheaper end. 

12. Humanscale Freedom

By no means is this a cheap chair, especially if you opt for the leather version, but as we've previously stated, many remote workers will spend more time sitting in their office chair than on a sofa that costs thousands of dollars. Therefore, rather than being a piece of furniture, think of it as a work tool. 

Overall, it's a beautifully designed and highly comfy chair, with a 15-year warranty from Humanscale. When you consider that you'll be buying a chair for 15 years, the price seems less expensive and more like a long-term investment. 

13. IKEA Markus

IKEA Markus cool office chair

Is it true that IKEA has stylish office chairs? Yes, it is true! IKEA has a greater variety of cool office chairs than you may expect, and the IKEA Markus is one of our top recommendations. It's not the cheapest option from this Swedish company, but it has almost everything you need. 

A high mesh back with lumbar support, optional armrests, and easy height and tilt adjustments are all included. According to our tests, this funky office chair can withstand hours of use while keeping you comfortable. It's a no-brainer for one of the greatest cool office chairs on the market today. 

14. Argos Home Orion Ergonomic Office Chair

The Argos Home Orion looks more expensive than it is. It fulfills all the essential functions of a comfortable office chair while being quite comfortable to sit in throughout the day (or night). The armrests are useful, and it's worth noting that they aren't detachable; if you don't like armrests, this fancy office chair isn't for you. 

Its chrome-and-black stand and castors complement the faux leather design, and the Argos Home Orion glides on all surfaces with ease. This lofty back (which reaches up to 50.6 inches) provides excellent back and neck support. 

15. Herman Miller Mirra 2

Herman Miller Mirra 2 cool office chair

The Mirra 2, like its predecessor, is built like a tank and is fairly heavy, so if you have laminate or wooden flooring, you'll definitely need some floor protection. With a lattice back for ventilation and a durable mesh design that is cooling in the hot weather, it gives your back some great lumbar support. If you're used to fabric or leather seats, the plastic back will take some getting used to, but it's quite supportive and long-lasting. 

16. HAG Capisco Puls 8010

We adore interesting and out-of-the-box designs, and this one from Norwegian designer HG combines delicate Scandinavian minimalism with innovation. It resembles a hybrid between an office chair and a stool in form and function, giving lumbar and lower back support while forcing you to retain your natural sitting posture. 

The HG white ergonomic office chair is pleasant to use and can be tilted and modified in terms of height and seat depth, making it ideal for those who walk around and get up a lot during their working day. It's a tad on the pricier side, but it's also one of the most attractive designs on the list. 

17. Herman Miller Sayl

Herman Miller Sayl

Herman Miller chairs are famous for their elegance and comfort — and high prices. It offers the Herman Miller experience for a fraction of the price of its more well-known siblings: if you look around, you can purchase it for roughly half the price of a Mirra. However, the price can quickly rise as you raise the specification. 

We believe it's a lovely piece, especially in white with vividly colored upholstery, and it's also a lovely piece of furniture to sit in: the mesh back is designed to provide multiple levels of support whilst keeping your spine in its natural S shape. 

In the summer, the netting can keep you cool, and you can add extra lumbar support for further comfort. The Sayl cool office chair comes in black and white, with a wide range of upholstery colors to suit any setting. 

18. Steelcase Leap

If you have back discomfort, you'll want a cool home office chair that adjusts to you. While many chairs may be customized to meet your needs, the Steelcase Leap takes an unusual approach: it adjusts while you sit in it. As you modify your position, the back bends, the lumbar support adjusts, and the entire chair tilts; you set these by utilizing three controls that allow you to modify how the chair is designed for your spine, lumbar area, and posture. 

This cool computer chair is ideal for people who have chronic back or spinal problems, as adjusting these controls can make a chair way more comfortable. 

While the Leap has a more typical office chair appearance than the Herman Miller Aeron, we appreciated the Leap's firmer back support. This cool office chair is also available in a variety of colors. 

The Steelcase Leap cool computer chair isn't cheap, either; it's one of the more expensive seats we looked at, costing around $1,000. If you use it consistently and want something that can be modified to suit your mood, then it can be a good investment. 

Conclusion
