If you’re still working from your bed or couch over a year into working from home, I’d first and foremost like to offer my condolences to your lower back. Second, I’d like to give you a subtle nudge to finally introduce ergonomic seating to your WFH setup. For many companies, working from home isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and with the massive Wayfair Way Day sale, there’s no better time to get a proper office chair for your desk.
“The key to finding a good chair is one that has much variability as possible,” says chiropractic physician Kelli Pearson, DC. “If you are a short person, under 5-foot-4, it’s critical that the seat pan is not too long or otherwise, your feet will simply not hit the floor. If you are sitting at a desk, it’s critical that you can lock the chair back in a vertical position if needed when you are perched on the front of your chair.” An added bonus in a desk chair, says Dr. Pearson, is the ability to lean back and also one that has a bit of lumbar support “as it is not too big and not too high.”
Wayfair Way Day sales include desk chairs that are up to $800 off, allowing you to get a supportive chair that’s affordable. Shop five of the best Wayfair office chairs on sale below.
