A company boardroom is where meetings are held and decisions are made. It’s the hub of power in an organisation – and as such, it should be properly equipped.
As well as selecting a conference table and video-conferencing facilities, don’t forget to pay attention to the basics. Everyone has to sit. You want boardroom chairs to be comfortable and to convey the right impression about your business… generally, to be just that little bit “upmarket” and impressive.
What to look for in boardroom chairs
The best boardroom chairs for sale have the following features in common.
Boardroom chairs accommodate company directors, upper management and VIP clients. As such, core features are padded comfort and all-body support.
Seats should be soft, deep and sufficiently spacious to allow the hips and legs to fit snugly but without a squeeze. Padded backrests provide comfort and support for the spine.
The best boardroom chairs are height and depth adjustable to accommodate any body shape or size. Sitting for long periods in a seat that’s too shallow or a chair that’s standing too high or too low off the ground is irritating, tiring and bad for body posture. It also won’t help you be at your ease in important meetings.
Swivel and tilt capabilities
To ensure meeting participants can easily turn to the people beside them, a boardroom chair should have swivel and tilt capabilities.
Types of boardroom chairs
So, what types of office chairs are most suitable for the boardroom… and why?
Mesh-back chairs, for South Africa’s warm climate
Stylish, highback chairs with ergonomic backrests constructed from cool, comfortable mesh are an ideal choice for South African boardrooms.
For example, a leader in this line is the EasyPro office chair, available in four elegant styles. The chair comes with Italian-made armrests and a unique mechanism that automatically synchronises the tilt of the seat to the recline of the backrest.
Sleek, stylish highback chairs
Highback chairs offer good support and are sufficiently impressive for meetings with high-powered clients.
Of the highback chairs we offer, for example, we recommend our Genmax Highback with loop armrests or the Genet Highback, optionally upholstered in leather.
As boardroom chairs, they can be customised with armrests, a base and fabric or leather upholstery designed to suit your preferences and company branding. The chairs provide ergonomic support for the spine, as well as the neck and head. They also include swivel and tilt functionality, and enable users to recline.
Multi-purpose midback chairs
Midbacks are versatile multi-use office chairs. They have all the ergonomic features of the highback, but without the extended backrest.
You can adjust the height, tilt and tension of our midback chairs, and have them customised with the armrests, base and upholstery material you desire. Midbacks are affordable boardroom chairs that offer comfort and style.
Cost-cutting kit chairs
A comparatively low-cost option is the all-purpose kit chair. Kit chairs make ideal, affordable boardroom chairs, suitable especially for SMEs and start-up companies that want to make a good impression while minimising costs.
We offer a range of kit chairs, including fully adjustable swivel chairs in various configurations and a static or fixed kit chair.
