What is the best way to sit in in my office chair?

Poor posture can cause a lot of pain and it is something that many office workers experience throughout their career. Therefore, it's incredibly important to be aware of your posture throughout your working day. Good posture can improve your mood and self-confidence as well as improving your physical health. This is how you should sit in a chair properly:

  • Use the height adjustment feature on the seat so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are in line with (or just below) your hips
  • Sit up straight and keep your hips pushed back in the chair
  • Position the back of the seat so that it is at a 100- to 110-degree angle. You should also make sure that your upper and lower back are supported. You can do this by using small pillows or back supports.
  • If you work at a computer screen, make sure you are sitting at least 20 inches away from the screen
  • Relax your shoulders and keep them from rising toward your ears or rounding forward during the day

Gentoo Chelsea Leather Chair

Not convinced that the chair is leather (i.e. from a cow) as advertised.

View product

Service is quite rapid.
The chair is very good and comfortable.
It is advertised as being leather, but I don't think it is real leather, which was slightly disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to review us.
The Chelsea chair is made from Bonded leather which is also known as blended leather.
Bonded leather is not only environmentally friendly, but has exceptional consistency with no natural defects which is great for a professional look.

Gentoo Eclipse 2 Chair With Loop Arms

The assembly instructions were not all that clear and seemed to be dated. Easy and effective to use in our smallish garden.
