Office chairs always seem so comfortable when you look at them, with their padded, supporting seat and designer look. Whenever I see one in a house, an office or even in a shop, I always think I should get one for myself. Office chairs give you right away the impression that you could seat on them for ages, comfortably, without feeling any sort of ache.
Office chairs are specifically built to ensure that a person who needs to sit for a long period of time does not incur in health problems. It is a well known fact that sedentary jobs are a risk for our body wellbeing: sitting for too many hours provokes a cluster of conditions, such as increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels that leads to metabolic syndromes. Not to mention that lungs suffer compression from the sitting posture, which results in less space for your lungs to expand when you breathe and limits the amount of oxygen that fills your lungs. Finally, we all know that we may end up suffering of a backache or neckache if we sit on an uncomfortable chair.
Office chairs are then very important tools in our daily lives if we do have a sedentary job or a sedentary life, in general – in fact, we don’t necessarily only use office chairs in an office. I have decided to buy some office chairs for my home studio, for example. I do work from home sometimes, but it is also meant for any free time sitting activity, such as painting, drawing or sewing, for example. I first wanted to buy them online (there are plenty of websites where you can find office chairs), but I soon realised I needed the help of a professional because I had no idea of what to search in office chairs. In the right shop I found exactly what I was searching for and ended up buying two office chairs which, don’t get me wrong, are quite expensive, but I will never regret buying. They are among my favourite pieces of furniture, not only because they look really good, but also because they are extremely comfortable.
In the end, these are not simple chairs, they are more of an instrument that will help you keep under control your health. So, if you need to sit for long hours because of your work or hobby you should consider good quality office chairs.
