If you’re working from home, you’ll be sitting in this chair for most of your time, (permitting coffee breaks) so you’ll need something top notch to keep you comfortable during these long periods of time.
In this article, we’ll be compiling 6 of our choices for the best office chairs, that you should have in your home office when working from home.
We’re starting off this list with something quite out of the ordinary. The Varier Thatsit may look incredibly alien to sit on, but it actually has a whole host of ergonomic benefits for you as you sit on it.

Herman Miller Sayl
Herman Miller returns to this last for our last entry, and it provides one of the most beautiful looking chairs that money can buy.
The Sayl is constructed with the ideology of suspension bridges in mind, conjoining the whole chair in a cocoon-like shape to support your back through long working sessions at home.
