eames office chair

Office chairs are one, if not the, most important aspect of your workplace. Whether you’re working from home or your office, we all spend long periods of time sitting, and it’s killing us. So, hopefully, you’re sitting in a good office chair already. If not, let us help you!

If you work from home, you already know how important your home office is to your everyday life. But, just like any workspace, important aspects like functionality and organization might fall to the wayside during hectic workdays. This is particularly more likely to happen in our homes.

In this blog article, we’ll provide you plenty of information on what you can do to enjoy working from home more, including our top 3 office chairs. These office chairs are our favorite either because they offer great value, great comfort, or great ergonomics.

Short tips to enjoy working from home more

But before we get into our office chairs, here are 9 short tips to enjoy working from home more.

  • Bulletins and dry-erase boards: Instead of cluttering your desk with countless Post-Its, do yourself a favor and put a bulletin board and dry-erase board within easy reach so you never forget anything again.
  • Declutter: Throw away things you don’t use. File away important documents. You will be able to tackle your workload better if you do it in a clean office.
  • Improve your organization: Could you use more drawers to keep it all organized? Filing cabinets? Shelves? Folders? Whatever you need, make it happen.
  • Fill your workspace with things you love: Your workspace shouldn’t be all about work. Surround yourself with things that inspire and motivate you. Just don’t go over our declutter tip above!
  • Let some sunlight in: Move your desk as close to windows as you can so you take advantage of the sun’s natural light during the day.
  • Make your desk part of the décor: Not sure where to start? Check out our collection of office desks.
  • Use extra space for a home office: If you don’t have a home office and don’t know where you can set your own workspace at home, take a gander around your home. You might have a small space, a nook under the stairs, a closet; those can be transformed with the addition of a desk.
  • Assess your office chair: We got back to this because it’s really important! If you feel an ache somewhere at the end of the day, it is definitely time to get a new office chair! The correct ergonomic fit is a must. Take a look at our favorite office chairs and find one that you can adjust to fit your body and support it appropriately.

The original design by Charles and Ray Eames was part of the famous Eames Aluminum Group of Office Chairs introduced in 1958. This particular office chair is named named after the aluminum side ribs, which hold the one-piece seat-back suspension and creates a sitting pocket that embraces and welcomes the body. 

Our Eames Ribbed Management Chair features

  • Embossed Ribbing: Unlike inferior reproductions, we use stitched ribbing in each of our Eames Ribbed Management Chairs where the upholstery flattens. This embossed ribbing creates a more comfortable experience, just like the original design.
  • Thin, Reliable Aluminum Base: We use the exact same classic Eames style, ultra-thin aluminum base in our Eames Ribbed Management Chairs. This frame not only looks great, but it’s also one of the strongest frames in the market, able to support over 400 lbs of weight.

Our Eames Soft Pad Executive Chair, just like his sister chair, follows the exact same structure of the Eames Aluminum Group Office but incorporating cushions to the seat and back.
