Goodbye Wooden Nightmare!
By Christian David Loeffler on January 25, 2020
Our college dorms have these awful generic wooden chairs that you cannot sit on for more than two minutes - ugh it drives me nuts. I purchased the Furmax Office Chair and found myself in a much better situation.
The chair looks great and most people don't believe that I got it for $40. The seat is pretty comfy. The back of the chair is comfortable, but I would say it is meant to be more supportive than anything and is not really supposed to compare to something like a cushion-backed chair. It is two pieces of plastic behind mesh - again it feels fine - just probably not something for you if you plan to sleep around the office all day. I told my friend how much the seat was and he scoffed, but then he came to my room and sat in it for hours, so it did its job well. I like that the seat has six wheels - they have all worked perfectly. The setup took maybe an hour to an hour and a half and I am usually the slowly cautious type. One concern was that the seat isn't wide enough, but I am about 250 pounds at the time of writing and my legs don't tough the handles. Overall I was EXTREMELY satisfied with the purchase and I cannot wait to take the chair to my summer job!
• Professional and visually appealing design
• Six wheels adds to balance and support
• Comfortable seat
• Can spin (if that is your thing)
• Great height leverage - can be short or tall for desk or for just sitting in a room with friends
• Amazing value ($40 at my time of purchasing)
• Maybe the wheels could roll even better. Though they roll perfectly fine, I like to speed travel across the room.
• Sometimes feel uneasy when reclining. Though it reclines very well, in the back of my head I sometimes wonder if I am reclining to far and will break the plastic - which I don't even think is possible but I am paranoid.
