Finding an Amazon Prime Day office chair is a high priority on our list for the retailer’s big sales event. And as always, we’re digging into the very best deals from all angles. You’re likely here because you’re tired of looking at and sitting in the same old unattractive/uncomfortable/broken office chair every day. We get it. Good-looking task chairs for your home office are hard to come by. To help you find the perfect mate for your computer desk, we found the best Prime Day deals on desk chairs for every kind of budget and style.

If you need a refresher on Prime Day, we've got you covered. And be sure to check out all the other home deals Prime Day has to offer.

But before we dig into our picks, it’s best to understand what to look for when shopping for the best office chair.

You’ve definitely heard of the word ergonomic, but it can be tough figuring out exactly what that means for your home office chairs. There’s a reason for that: Every chair feels a little bit different for every single person. There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re looking for a comfy chair that isn’t going to cause you any pain now or in the future.

The plushest option of our office chair picks, this padded model is armless and extra wide — ideal for those who like to cross their legs while working. The chair is available with or without wheels, though you can take an extra $12 off the wheel-less model at checkout when you check the on-page coupon.

EMIAH Armless Padded Desk Chair

Flexispot’s OC3B is one of our favorite desk chairs sold on Amazon. According to Clever tester Terri Williams, it’s the “best of both worlds” when it comes to comfort and price point. “The entire chair (back, seat, headrest) is made of breathable mesh, which contributes to air circulation,” she writes, and it has “several adjustment points, and even includes a clothes hanger on the back to keep a jacket or throw blanket close by.” Plus, it’s just plain comfortable. Now through Prime Day, you can take an extra $30 off the sale price when you check the on-page coupon.

As it turns out, Serta also makes office furniture. This fuzzy, height adjustable faux-fur chair has memory foam padding in the seat and arms, and a wheeled base with 360-degree casters. “It doesn't rock, so it helps me so much from slouching,” one reviewer writes, while another commends its “great back support.” If you’re not one for faux fur, the gray suede option is also available, though without the Prime Day office chair deals running.

Serta Valetta Memory-Foam Desk Chair

It’s not your mother’s desk chair, but it does look like something you’d find in a Lower East Side art gallery. (“Take a break from the serious seating,” the product description urges.) The tractor-inspired seat is made from ergonomically molded plastic, and it’s set atop an adjustable chrome base that’ll last for years to come. Colorways range from yellow to violet to apple green, but we’re partial to the orange, which just so happens to be 31% off.

Flash Furniture Elliott Task Chair

The saddle stitching on this faux-leather task chair — along with the matte black base — make it look much more expensive than it actually is. The armless design will slide under any size desk, and it’s attractive enough to double as a side chair. And because there isn’t a headrest or pair of arms to attach, assembly shouldn’t take more than ten minutes.

Poly and Bark Paxton Task Chair in Tan

If you haven’t yet scored a vintage Breuer model, here’s a cane-back office chair in the same mid-century style. The seat is topped with a tufted, faux-leather cushion, which one reviewer describes as “thick,” “not too shiny,” and “luxurious.” (And unlike genuine leather, it’ll be easy to keep clean.) Amazon isn’t offering the biggest discount, but it is $10 off at checkout when you click the on-page coupon.

Zesthouse Modern Cane Office Chair

If you really want to get back to basics, here’s an option from the retailer itself—that just may be the most-reviewed office chair on the site. The two-inch-thick seat cushion will provide ample support, and the contoured mesh back will bend to your weight, unlike rigid models made from leather or upholstery. (If you’re not yet persuaded, you could always read some of the nearly 14,000 five-star reviews.)

Amazon Basics Low-Back Mesh Desk Chair

You probably haven’t thought too much about how convenient a pair of flip-up armrests can be…but you will after sitting in this chair for a day. The ergonomic Mimoglad office chair encourages healthy spinal posture in both the back’s design and its ability to recline, lessening pressure on the body. It’s also an extra $40 off at checkout when you select the on-page coupon.

For those who want comfort but find themselves on a tight budget, here’s a supportive, under-$75 option that’ll arrive in just two days. A breathable mesh design means you won’t get sweaty while plowing through spreadsheets, and the 15-minute assembly process isn’t bad either.

Neo Office and Gaming Chair

The high-back version, which does have arms, is also on sale. The chair comes in three different frame finishes—chrome, black, rose gold, and gold—and features a lock system, which means you can find your favorite position and maintain it.

Flash Furniture Whitney High Back Desk Chair

When combined with the Prime Day deal, this Eames office chair dupe costs about $2,000 less than the original. (The white colorway offers an even greater discount.) It has a quilted faux-leather seat and back, and the armless design makes it an excellent choice for small spaces or tight desks.

Flash Furniture Alan Low-Back Armless Desk Chair

One of the most affordable options on this list (though certainly not the least stylish), this upholstered desk chair has a channeled back and high-density seat cushion, and comes in a variety of colorways. Just about every reviewer calls it comfortable, including a nail tech who uses it daily for her appointments. If it’s supportive enough for the posture-breaking work of a manicurist, it’ll be supportive enough for Zoom.

Modern Armless Fabric Desk Chair

This modern desk chair is so comfortable, one reviewer purchased another to use as additional seating in her family room. (Plus, it’s “attractive [and] very easy to assemble,” she writes.) It offers an Eames-like look for a fraction of the price this Prime Day.

Christopher Knight Home Brinson ARMLESS Office Chair

“I was surprised [by] how comfortable this chair is,” writes one reviewer of this adjustable mid-back office chair, “and it looks and feels very expensive.” The armrests flip up for extra room while sitting (or to allow the chair to fit underneath a low desk), and the padded headrest offers additional neck support. It’s available in four different colorways — all of which are now under $75.

NEO CHAIR Mid-Back Adjustable Desk Chair

If your desk chair doesn’t need to be a focal point, this mesh, minimalist model is still a handsome option. The height, tilt, and armrests are adjustable, and the base can support up to 450 pounds. Reviewers call the padding “substantial” and the assembly process a breeze.

Balmstar Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair

By no means is your desk chair required to roll. A windsor-style side chair (complete with a plush seat cushion) will more than suffice—and double as extra seating for guests. This one—a favorite among reviewers—is an extra $15 off with an on-page coupon.

POLY & BARK Enzo Dining Chair

If you’d rather the cushion be attached, this upholstered side chair has also received high marks. The walnut wood finish pairs with most mid-century furniture, and looks, according to one purchaser, “elegant” in person. While the chair is shipped from and sold by Amazon—and is now 60% off—the brand offers a free one-year warranty. The dark gray colorway is also on sale.

Armen Living Jaguar Side Chair

Those who are tall may have trouble finding a desk chair that properly aligns with their neck and back. Luckily, this under-$200 model is specifically designed for those who are 5'6" to 6'2". (It also has a higher weight limit, at 330 pounds.) The headrest is contoured to relieve vertebrae pressure, and the lumbar pressure is adjustable — two features not often found in under-$200 desk chairs. It’s shipped by Amazon, but the vendor also offers a lifetime warranty.

SIHOO M18 Ergonomic Office Chair

Wobble stools can help strengthen posture muscles, and are ideal for those who have trouble sitting still all day. (And unlike most ergonomic desk chairs, it isn’t an eyesore). “I was afraid that the seat wouldn't be as tall [as I needed] but it is magical! I am totally in love,” one reviewer raves. It comes in eight colorways, including a few neutrals, but we particularly like this soothing cornflower blue. All are up to $15 off this Prime Day.

ECR4Kids Sitwell Wobble Stool with Cushion

It can get tiring sitting in one position all day long. Luckily, this office chair has a little footrest built right in for whenever you want to stretch out. The high-back design can be adjusted and locked in, so you can switch positions as you lean into the workday (literally).

Qulomvs Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair with Footrest

An adjustable lumbar rest and a contoured backrest will help keep you feeling fresh, even if you’re stuck at your desk for hours. Not only does this chair swivel, it tilts, is height adjustable, and you can tweak the seat depth. We’re partial to the coral colorway if you’re looking to make a statement.

Available in three colors and three back heights, the Ovios chair is sleek, refined, and ideal for anyone looking to hit a vintage vibe in their office. Made with soft suede that’ll only heighten comfortability, it also features 360-degree rotating casters for easy movement and a curved backrest that gives you optimal lumbar support.
