The classic

Now some people might think that they're too good for the Amazon Basics brand, but those people are wrong. There's a reason that this chair hits the first spot on our list: it's got over 11,000 reviews and comes in at 4.5 stars, which means that it's doing something right.

There's nothing about this chair that will be unexpected or weird: Amazon takes basic products and makes them incredibly well. This desk chair is no different. A sleek black with a classic design, it's affordable and dependable.

Options are also fun

Maybe you don't want a chair that's quite so solid as the Amazon Basic. You want a low cost option that will support your back without taking over the room. Oh, and maybe you want it in pink. Or green. Or orange. BestOffice Store has this solid mesh backed desk chair that comes in eight different colors, so no matter how you've decorated your office it will fit in. It's perfect if you need something to fit into your office nook at home.

Or a more stylish option

Let's be honest: sometimes desk chairs can look a bit too utilitarian. This sweet little number doesn't have that problem. It's got personality, it's got style, and it's got comfort. Everything a dream desk chair needs. Unlike most plastic chairs, this one doesn't have the feeling that it's been built exclusively for function. It has a softer feel to it thanks to the beautiful fabric. And it has three different color options, all of which are gorgeous.

Massaging? Yes please.

Did we mention that one of our priorities in choosing these desk chairs was comfort? Here's where we take that to the next level. At first glance this chair looks like a normal office chair with some good padding. But look closer my friend. This chair will massage your back while you work. This desk chair is truly one of luxury, without the luxury price tag.

The minimalist

Time for a quick swing in the opposite direction: minimalism. This chair is the best desk chair for you if you don't want a hulking behemoth taking up half your room. If you have a minimal style, and want a chair that lets you engage your body for good posture, this armless beauty is perfect for you. Plus every review mentions how comfy it is, which is the most important.

Furry chair!

We get it: this chair won't be for everyone. But we had to add one desk chair that has a bit more personality, and when we saw this it was the clear winner. It's so soft and fluffy, and if you're a fan of faux fur it will be perfect. It's bold, a statement piece, and so so cute.

The recliner

Ok, maybe it's technically best practice to do your work while sitting upright, but my personal opinion is that a nice recline is the only way to sit at a desk. Most desk chairs require you to sit upright with your feet on the floor, and some of us just need a little more support than that. Thanks to the footrest and adjustable back, this chair is a great option if you hate being upright. Relax while you work. You've earned it.

Gamers know the best chairs

If there's one group of people who have perfected sitting at a desk for hours on end, it's gamers. Gaming chair technology has long outpaced desk chair technology, so if you want the best desk chair, talk to the gamers. This particular gaming chair has the look of a professional desk chair, and comes in at a nice entry level price point, so even if you're not leet (yet), this is still a great option for your desk chair.

Sleek and comfortable? Yes.

If you want to take gaming chairs to the next level, this option has a lot of added features that make it comfortable and good for long-term use. And there's nothing that says you can't look like a gamer while you sit at your desk. Check out the recline, the footrest, and the extra pillows to make sure you're supported exactly the way you need to be while you work. And if you find that the same position isn't perfect all day long? You can just change it!

That gamer aesthetic

This one's for the real gamers. Just kidding, it's for people who want an incredibly comfortable desk chair while looking like a real gamer. Those red stripes give it some serious personality, but the true secret lies in the massage pillow. It's ideal for long projects that keep you at your desk for hours. No matter what, you'll stay comfortable and supported.
