g1With back to school less than a month away, what better time to tackle the top 5 chairs for studying in style in 2016? The concept of comfort while studying is more important than one might initially think. After all, when we’re comfortable, we find it much easier to concentrate, and that can lead to increased productivity & higher grades! So keep on reading if you’d like to discover 5 awesome chairs for studying in the coming school year. But don’t worry, the chairs discussed below are in no particular order. They’re all designed to provide maximum comfort & support, and they’re all made to a high standard of quality & durability. What’s more, you can study effectively (and for hours on end) in any single one of them! Keep on reading for the complete list.

First up we have the DXRacer Polyurethane Gaming Office Chair – In Black & Green, which, as it happens, is shown above. This particular chair has many great features and comforts, from its high back design to its 360 degrees of swivel & amazing head and lumbar support. In fact, it has separate (i.e., unattached) headrest and lumbar support cushions, so you’re completely free to customize your own comfort level! Other top features include high-density foam (for great support & lasting comfort), a polyurethane covering (which is super easy to clean—just wipe and go), and an internal steel frame combined with an aluminum base, so you’ll benefit from incredible strength & durability without adding too much weight. Overall, the DXRacer is a chair that will make you look forward to sitting and studying. Imagine that! Though some assembly us required, it really shouldn’t be enough to discourage you. I recently assembled a similar chair (one of the models discussed below), and it wasn’t very difficult at all.

Zuo Unico ChairThe next chair I’d like to consider is the Zuo Unico Leatherette Office Chair – In White. One drawback to this chair is that it’s not likely to suit everyone’s aesthetic tastes. However, there’s clearly no denying its unique, contemporary style! It actually reminds me of something one might find in the board room of a cinematic Bond villain. I think it’s the white leatherette cushion rolls… Those rolls do look incredibly comfortable though. And, considering that this chair is adjustable in various places (for instance, in both its arm and seat heights) and easily tilts back & locks in at the angle of your choosing, I’d be willing to bet that it’s every bit as comfortable as it looks. If your home can pull off this bold and contemporary design, then the Zuo Unico is sure to bring you many hours of sitting & studying comfort! 

TygerClaw High BackThe third chair on today’s list is the TygerClaw High Back Bonded Leather Executive Chair – In Black & Blue. This attractive chair offers tremendous versatility—it’s great for your home, at school, or in the office. The TygerClaw’s black & blue finish is at once professional and laid-back, meaning it will blend seamlessly into any modern decor. The TygerClaw also features adjustable lumbar support, great manoeuvrability (with a full 360 degrees of swivel), a multitude of adjustment points (including seat height, back height, back angle, & recline), and the elegance and style of a soft, bonded leather exterior (which is also durable and easy to wipe clean). And if strength and durability are what you’re looking for, fear not! This chair offers a sturdy frame combining heavy-duty metal and a strong & shiny chrome base. And its dual-wheel, multi-surface casters provide full support whether you’re rolling around the office or just plain sitting. The only slight drawback I can find is that it may take up to 60 minutes to assemble the TygerClaw, and that’s with 2 adults pitching in… OUCH! Oh well, you’re sure to be rewarded in the end!

ClutchThis next chair, the Clutch Chairz Crank Charlie Gaming Chair – In Black & Blue, is actually one that I’m currently reviewing, so I’ve got some personal experience with it. One thing I can say right off is that this chair is very comfortable! It’s also VERY heavy. It only took me about 30 minutes to assemble it (it was meant to take that long with 2 adults, but I work alone). Its high-strength tubular steel frame was a bit hard to handle due to the weight, but even so, it’s great to see a product that’s so incredibly sturdy. Judging by the feel of this thing, I’d easily believe that the frame could last for a thousand years (and survive half a dozen nuclear blasts). The faux leather polyurethane upholstery may not last quite so long, but it should perform well against typical wear and tear. Other aspects of this tank-like chair include a Class 4 gas lift (capable of supporting 330 lbs), non-marking casters, high-density foam cushions (including detached cushions for both neck & lumbar support), a swivel-tilt mechanism, and 3-D arm rests that adjust both forwards and backwards & up and down, as well as rotating by 10 degrees. By every possible measure of quality, comfort, & style, this chair is one fine specimen!

Zuo Boutique ChairFinally, there’s the Zuo Boutique Leatherette Manager & Executive Chair – In White. This chair, with its tufted seat back & soft leatherette material, is both robust & attractive. Its chromed steel frame provides strength and durability, while its height adjustable seat & 360 degrees of swivel bring function & comfort to the mix. Yet another piece in the easy-to-wipe-clean camp, the Zuo Boutique is sure to please in any serious environment. There’s just so much to recommend this chair. Its high back design provides superb upper body (head, neck, & shoulder) support, and you can even tilt the seat back to your most desired angle. As for the overall style of this piece, it’s actually my favourite chair on today’s list in this regard. It is modern, yet somehow feels classic. Of course, some assembly is required, though not as much as with some of the other chairs we’ve seen. This one takes just 15 minutes for 2 adults to put together. Overall, it’s a very fine piece for studying, working, or just relaxing.

And that’s the whole story. Now you know about 5 great office style chairs that are perfect for long periods of sitting & studying, and you can choose the piece that best suits your taste and your requirements. I really don’t think you can go wrong with any of these chairs, but just be sure to get a little help assembling your chosen model (particularly if it’s one of the 2 person assembly pieces). Once it’s all together, you’re likely to just want to sit back in the finished product and not stir for hours. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
