For chairs used to sit at tables in meetings, you can typically save on expenses and purchase cheaper, less elaborate chairs than you would use for desks. This is because employees will not be sitting in the chairs for long and likely will not need to type in the chairs or perform too many functions while sitting down. Although you want your employees to be comfortable, you usually will not need to put as much time into thinking about purchasing table chairs as you will desk chairs. Do make sure that the chairs are wide enough for most adults and that the backs come up high enough to offer support. Depending on the cost and the function of the chairs, you may or may not want to offer arm rests.
Much more thought should be put into desk chairs than table chairs. Employees who spend all day sitting at desks will need chairs that are comfortable and healthy. Before looking for chairs to purchase, do some research on ergonomically designed desk chairs. Much more information can be found on ergonomic office equipment, and it is important to familiarize yourself with the potential long term health problems caused by ill-fitting or poorly functioning office chairs.
What kind of upholstery should you get? Another factor that needs to be taken into account when purchasing conference chairs is the upholstery of the chair. This is more of a personal preference as some people prefer different upholstery options over others, but also keep in mind you are purchasing these chairs for multiple people. Take a poll around the office to find out which kind of upholstery people prefer. There are many different upholstery options out there from leather to fabric to mesh to a combination of two. Many prefer the traditional leather upholstery for their conference chairs as it gives the impression of class and prestige. Some people that work in states where the temperatures get pretty high may opt for mesh chairs to keep them cool all throughout the year. If you will be using your conference chairs often, make sure to get a high grade fabric or leather to ensure that the seat and back will not wear over time. Chairs that are used consistently and are upholstered with low grade fabric or leather tend to wear quicker.
