If you’re part of the ever-growing crowd that works from home, you know how easy it is to fall into the trap of spending your days on the couch, hunched over a laptop. And while a cushy sofa certainly sounds like a comfortable place to spend your 9-to-5, it won't do your lower back or joints any favors after a while—so investing in an office chair that’s built to offer both support and comfort is one of the best investments that you can make.

But there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to office chairs, so we’ve pulled together a list of the best-selling models on Amazon (only one from each brand) with the best user ratings (at least 700 customer reviews). Check them out below.

1. Boss Products Perfect Posture Office Chair (4.3 stars); $81

Sitting all day can cause poor circulation, but this chair's curved waterfall seat helps combat that by promoting healthy blood flow to the legs, according to the company. Coupled with its lumbar support and adjustable armrests, this chair is built for comfort when working for long stretches.
