As the name implies, office chairs are used in a work or office setting, but this doesn’t mean that corporations are the only places they’re found. Given the ubiquity of computers, almost everyone who has a PC in their home has an office or computer chair sitting in front of it.No other type of chair commonly found in the home is well-suited to computer work. If you’ve ever tried sitting in a straight-backed kitchen chair, or a recliner and used your computer, you know how awkward it can be. Use a kitchen or dining chair, and your back will be killing you in short order. Sit in a recliner and use your computer for more than a couple hours, and you’ll start to experience neck pain. The office chair is the only one that makes sense, and fortunately, there are a vast number of types of computer chairs to choose from.
