Ergonomic office chairs come not only in many types but also in a variety of materials, when it comes to both components and coverings.
In this article, we will focus on coverings only. It is important to consider the materials when you choose an office chair because each one has different particularities that can change the level of your comfort.
Regular fabric is a common material, cheap, available in any color and many patterns. It is more susceptible to tears than other materials and it gets dirty after a while, requiring regular cleaning.
Leather is expensive, classic and sophisticated. With proper care, it will last a lifetime. It is easy to clean, but occasionally it requires special conditioning. It may have natural imperfections, but they are a part of the picture. Leather comes in limited colors.
- Faux leather
This is another very popular material, durable, easy to clean, affordable, with no imperfections and which does not require any maintenance. However, the biggest disadvantage is poor breathability, which makes chairs covered in faux leather uncomfortable during summer days.
Mesh is fashionable, modern, cheap, easy to clean and very breathable and adaptable to the body. However, mesh ergonomic office chairs have limited color availability.
