There are undisputed differences between office chairs that cost less than 100 dollars and those that go above this price point. In terms of comfort, particularly if you are a tall person, there is no doubt that you cannot find something perfectly suited for your needs. But the biggest difference is that of design. The desk and the chair are the first things that tell future employees and potential customers just how reputable the company is. So investing in somewhat more expensive chairs is a relatively cheap way of upgrading the status of your brand without actually investing in a rebranding campaign. Finally, you have to consider the fact that a slightly bigger price is a good guarantee of an increase in the quality of the workmanship. So when we started our search for the best office chair under $300, we were actually taking all of these factors into consideration. And because we had so many points of view to consider what we ended up was the following list of the top 5 contenders for the title. Right after the list you will find our reviews where we detail what attracted us to each chair, and by going through them you may be able to decide which the best office chair for you is.

1. Serta 43506 Bonded Leather Executive Chair
The absolute best office chair in terms of design and comfort is the Serta 43506 Bonded Leather Executive Chair. It is the perfect chair if you are on the plus size of life, and in particular if you are also very tall. It has padded cushions in every ergonomically required spot on the body, and it has an adjustable lumbar support feature to go with that. However, all that support comes at a price since this is a full leather chair and it tends to get very hot if your office tends to get hot. It is also worth noting that, if you are not very tall, there are more affordable alternatives, and we are going to explore some of them today. Getting back to the Serta 43506 Bonded Leather Executive Chair, we simply cannot emphasize enough how good the chair looks in real life, how imposing it is, and how excellent the quality of manufacture really is. Its height can be adjusted but also its tilt has an infinite locking system so you can find the perfect position. The arm rests are static, but they are made from actual wood bringing an even more intense layer of luxury this office chair.
2. Office Star Space Seating Office Chair
Coming down a couple of levels of magnitude in term of the design factor, but going up at the same rate in terms of comfort, we have found the Office Star Space Seating Office Chair. It has an extra large meshed back. It will not provide support for your head and neck, unless you are a short person, but it will provide enough support for your back, even if you are very tall. However the feature that excited us the most was the fact that the back was meshed and therefore it allows your back to breathe while you are working and it keeps you from sweating. The chair can be tilted to some extend, but it will not recline back all the way for a quick nap. The base of the chair is PU leather, so although it is not real, it does look and feel like authentic leather so it does give the chair a luxurious look, worthy of a managerial position.
3. Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair
Although we believe that meshed back chairs make for the most comfortable chairs on the market, we would have to agree that full leather chairs with padded ergonomic support can be even more comfortable for the right person and in the right climate. So, if you are looking for a good quality office with padded support, but do not want or cannot afford to spend the money that the Serta chair costs, there is an alternative in the Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair. It does not use actual leather, but the PU leather they are using is of excellent quality and it feels very comfortable. The padded support is placed perfectly to help make you feel very comfortable. And we were particularly pleased by the contrast between the silver accents of the arm supports and of the legs, set against the black leather. It really does make this chair look very professional and even more expensive than it really is.
4. Flash Furniture High Back Leather Chair
For some people the comfort level of a chair does not depend on how much padded support it offers or how breathable that support is, but about finding the best sitting position. And that is where the Flash Furniture High Back Leather Chair comes in because, besides the fact that it has a very tall back, suitable even for a professional basketball player, it also has 3 control levers and an additional knob for the lumbar support. You can control the height, tilt, and the resistance provided by the tilt mechanism. And to go with all these high tech features, you get a cutting edge design wrapped in real, luxurious leather.
5. LexMod Edge Office Chair
Our last option is one that focuses not only on the best design, or comfort, but on the best ratio between quality and price. The LexMod Edge Office Chair is a very affordable office chair, but it does have a wide, meshed back that provides the perfect level of comfort. The arms can be flipped up or down, and can even be moved all the way out. The base is upholstered in leatherette, and it really looks great, and the silver accents on the back and the legs are great at giving the chair a very modern, sophisticated look. The other great thing is the fact that you can choose to own the chair in any different number of colors, for the same price.
