This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in January of 2019. One of these reclining office chairs will ensure that you'll never have to sacrifice comfort or freedom of movement when sitting in front of a computer for extended periods of time. We've included classically-styled options and those with some modern flair that allow you to kick back and relax after the work is done. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 30, 2019:

Added the Sihoo M18 for its breathable mesh material, bidirectional rotating headrest, multi-stage gas lift, and adjustable foot stool. Also included the MDL Executive, as it combines elegance and functionality with an extreme recline angle for napping. Also included the Duramont Task Chair for its classic style and waterfall seat edge, which minimizes stress to the back of the legs. The Merax Inno Series is quite a durable option, thanks to its double stitching and fade-resistant surface, so it's a great option for offices that receive a lot of sunlight. The HomCom Executive offers several large-diameter wheels and 360 degrees of swiveling motion for easy mobility. I know that the Uomax Big & Tall and Neo Premium are a bit unorthodox compared to many of the other items, but I wanted to represent a bit of office gaming culture where possible, since we may have readers who work in the gaming industry for a living and might appreciate seeing a couple of options with themed designs, lumbar massage pillows, and glow-in-the-dark emblems. Finally, the Windaze Ergonomic provides a simple design, yet its automatic rebound system and memory foam seat cushion will ensure superior comfort.
