Home offices are becoming a staple of the American home. Consider that more people than ever are utilizing computers for college coursework, homeschooling, leisure, family finances, and telecommuting. Nearly 3.2 million people now telecommute for their jobs. Altogether, that’s an enormous number of individuals spending a lot of time sitting in front of their computers to communicate, work, research, socialize, learn and play.
This makes the office chair the epicenter of the efficient home office. (Spoiler: I’m sitting in one as I write this very post!) For all this sitting, we telecommuters deserve comfortable chairs in our home workspaces. A good office chair helps improve our attention spans, increase energy and productivity, and improve our overall quality of work.
