9 of Amazon’s Best-Selling Office Chairs


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.

3. BestOffice Ergonomic Desk Chair (4.2 stars); $45

4. AmazonBasics High-Back Swivel Office Chair (4.2 stars); $112

If you’re someone that has a hard time getting comfortable, go for the AmazonBasics, because, in addition to changing the height, you can also adjust the chair’s tilt and control how much it can rock back and forth.

8. Flash Furniture High Back Mesh Executive Chair (4.1 stars); $118

9. DRAGONN Ergonomic Kneeling Chair (4.1 stars); $140

According to the company, using the DRAGONN can help you with your posture, as it forces you to sit upright and prevents leaning or hunching.

Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.
Five rooms of one's own.

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.
