Fashionable Gaming And WFH Chairs For 2021

If you’re an avid gamer or have been working from home through the pandemic and haven’t had the chance to invest in a solid chair yet, you are in luck. Manufacturers have spent years perfecting the art of “double duty chair” — one that can please gamers and worker bees. Here’s a roundup of some top picks for 2021.


Ideal for gamers, AndaSeat comes with an impressive range of different color and style options all with the same advanced support you’ll need to spend hours winning. Made with stain and scratch-resistant PVC leather, every piece comes with adjustable armrests to help curb carpal tunnel, a matching head rest, lumbar support pillow to go with whatever design you choose, and a 160˚ tilt mechanism (yep, you could sleep in it!). Though its aluminum base means you can literally sit back and relax with faith in its sturdy build, it comes with a lifetime warranty just in case.

Regeneration By Knoll

Knoll has been in the office game for awhile as a well-known manufacturer that delivers long-lasting quality through modern designs. The Regeneration chair is no exception: appealing to the eye, it comes in three different pre-designed models with the option to customize through a variety of bases, castors, and coloring. When it comes to function, it’s equally as appealing: adjustable lumbar support, depth adjustment, and contoured arm pads make comfort a priority backed by a 12 year warranty. Added bonus: it’s lightweight enough to take with you into every room of the home (or take with you when you’re finally back in the office!) at only 28 pounds.

The Omega Chair by SecretLab

Named the Top Chair Of 2020 by IGN, it’s easy to see why so many gamers opt for SecretLab. Let’s begin with the Omega chair’s vast array of style and fabric options. Whether you are team Nappa leather or prefer their soft-weave fabric, each chair will come with a lumbar-head pillow made with a unique memory foam/cooling gel blend. The armrests on this piece are customizable to move in almost any direction, and this too offers a full-length recline for nap time with hydraulics and and adjustable tilt so you can bring your level of comfort wherever you go on its soft-gliding castor wheels. Though you likely won’t need it, SecretLab also offers a five year warranty.

Herman Miller x Logitech Gaming Chair

Two brands that are experts in their field, Logitech and renowned furniture designer Herman Miller teamed up for a brilliant collaboration that brings together the ultimate in comfort and style. It’s a serious investment piece, but worth the price: designed using input from 30 physicians that can be personalized to fit your own level of comfort in seat depth, back, and height, it boasts cooling foam technology, advanced spinal support, and fully adjustable, cushioned arms. While you only get one style option that’s a dark teal and black blend, it has a naturally sleek look as-is anyway that can fit with almost any style.

Issey Ergonomic Genuine Leather Executive Chair

If you’re looking to add glam to your life, this may be the chair for you. Hooker Furniture has been in the business for years, and is a preferred manufacturer in the design industry for its commitment to producing quality furniture. This piece is no exception: its purposefully distressed look on genuine leather was achieved through wood scoring and rub through that caters to the chic “worn” design trend. Accented by a studded nailhead trim with a solid wood foundation with tufted upholstery, the design itself is impressive. Yet just because it delivers on style doesn’t mean it will disappoint in function: it comes with both swivel and tilt mechanisms and a seat height adjustment that caters to fit your preference.

Perigold, $1,279

Epic by NobleChairs

Boasting a self-proclaimed “elegant design”, Noblechairs’ Epic line is designed for comfort and style. With a variety of color options for accents & details over soft nappa leather, the Epic has features like 4D armrests that can move in almost any direction, five quiet castors (so you don’t get that annoying rolling song across your hardwood), and an adjustable seat lift to name a few perks. While some features are gaming industry standard like removable cushions for neck & lumbar support and a rocking mechanism with a locking function, the Epic also boasts more breathable upholstery designed for hours of work or game play. It’s also more reasonably priced than others while still offering many similar benefits.
