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.
