It's all in the name! This form of chair is obviously designed for professional office use. Typically conference chairs feature loop arms and are upholstered in a leather of your choice. Common styles include both high back and mid back variations. In most cases, the larger the boardroom the fancier the conference chair.

In most cases desk chairs are the most affordable style of chair made. They typically feature a fabric or breathable mesh back design like the chair pictured above. Modern desk chairs can offer quite a few quality ergonomic features like adjustable arms, built in lumbar supports, and various tension adjustments. The average price for a new desk chair is around $99 but more upscale models are certainly available.

Style 3: Executive Chairs

Executive office chairs are the definition of success and class in the workplace. A high end executive chair will feature a high back design, Italian leather upholstery, various top notch ergo features, and much more.
