Looking for an affordable office chair? Look no further!

Everyone who works in an office setting, be it a corporate cubicle farm, a mom and pop shop, or working from a home office, knows that having a good office chair can make all the difference toward good posture and chronic pain. Unfortunately, not all of us have tons of cash lying around to invest in a $1,400 Herman Miller Aeron chair, especially after spending money on a good office desk to go with it (unless you use a lap desk!) We've compiled a list of some of the best office chairs under $100 (or slightly over, as pricing fluctuates) that you can find. Our top pick is the VON RACER Massage Gaming Chair. Not only does it look cool, but it also has great support and ventilation for a fair price.

Best overall office chair under $100: VON RACER Massage Gaming Chair

Maybe it's just me, but when I sit down in a chair for hours on end, my end gets very sore. Too much information? Maybe, butt I'm sure I'm not alone. That's why I like office chairs that have some or all of their surface covered in a soft cushion material and plenty of adjustable features to match my personal preferences. In addition to built-in lumbar support, this Massage Gaming Chair from VON RACER offers adjustable armrests, adjustable height, and an angle adjuster.

Tho top it all off, the VON RACER Massage Gaming Chair also has a removable neckrest and a recliner to give your weary feet some rest. If all that PU leather gets a little hot, you can take off the neckrest and lumbar pillow to allow for some aeration. If your back gets tired of sitting in the same place all day, you can plug in the lumbar pillow via a USB cable to enjoy a massage.

The design may be a bit loud for professionals, but you can get it in black or grey to tone down the gaming chair vibes. Overall, this office chair touts supreme comfort at an affordable price.

Pros:

  • Soft PU leather cushioning
  • Removable neckrest
  • Lumbar support with massage
  • Footrest and adjustable armrests

Cons:

  • May seem a bit juvenile
  • Not much mesh for airflow

Best value office chair under $100: AmazonBasics Classic Leather Chair

When I started working from home full-time a few years ago, this AmazonBasics chair was my first home office purchase. It has continued to serve me well as a guest chair since I've now upgraded to a more fancy gaming chair. It's still just as comfortable and practical as the day I purchased it.

Don't let this chair's low price and "basics" moniker fool you. It's padded for hours of comfortable seating and comes in three colors to match any decor. Assembly is an absolute snap. This chair is a little smaller than others on this list, perfect for those more petite workers or even as a child's homework chair.

Pros:

  • Comfortable padding
  • Subtle styling to match any decor
  • Simple setup

Cons:

  • Smaller size may not be ideal for larger workers
  • No ventilation
  • No neck support

Best looking office chair under $100: Devoko Office Desk Chair

I like this high-backed chair because it looks like something that could fit in equally well at a lawyer's office, a CEO's meeting room, or even a basic cubicle. The back is contoured to support your back in just the right spots, and the seat is covered in black leather.

Even though the Furmax High Back Office Chair below is positioned as a more elegant chair, to my eyes, this Devoko chair looks the classiest of any on our list. The chrome accents really shine and are sure to attract many compliments from your jealous coworkers.

Pros:

  • Stylish and sophisticated
  • Excellent back and neck support

Cons:

  • No real padding
  • No ventilation

Best drafting office chair under $100: Best Office Mesh Drafting Chair

I remember visiting my dad's office when I was a boy and seeing all of the drafting desks and thinking that he and the other employees must be tired from standing up all the time. Spoiler, they also had high stools for when they wanted to rest. You know what? Those stools, or drafting chairs, were pretty comfy!

This Mesh Drafting Chair from Best Office is particularly nice because it offers not only the enhanced airflow that mesh chairs are known for, but it can also be lowered down to more average desk height. That means it is multifunctional and multipurpose! So if you're one of the scores of stand-up desk faithful, it's worth your while to pick up a drafting chair like this for those moments when you need a break.

Pros:

  • Great resting spot for those with standing desks
  • Mesh back for ventilation
  • 360-degree foot support for better posture

Cons:

  • Can't quite lower to standard desk height
  • Not a ton of seat padding
  • No upper back or neck support

Best cushioned office chair under $100: Furmax Mid Back Office Chair

The Mid Back Office Chair from Furmax is probably what most people picture when thinking of an executive desk chair. While it does sport that high-end look, it thankfully doesn't carry an executive price tag.

What I like most about this chair is just how plush and comfy it looks. I can imagine collapsing into this luxurious chair and reading over reports or chatting with a colleague or client on the phone. The chair has an adjustable tilt control, and it can fit under any standard office desk. The chair is not too heavy, and its sturdy rolling wheels make it easy to move from desk to desk.

Pros:

  • Plush seating experience
  • Elegant styling
  • Stable while upright or reclined

Cons:

  • Doesn't have upper back or neck support
  • Not very breathable

Bottom line

Let's face it, most of us need to work, and for many of us, that work requires sitting down for extended periods. Not all of us can afford to splurge on office furniture, but we still want to find a chair that's supportive, stylish, and durable. With many of us now working from home, it's more important than ever to get the right choice. Out of all the best office chairs under $100 that I looked at, my favorite was the VON RACER Massage Gaming Chair. To me, it offers the perfect balance of cushioning, comfort and flexibility.

If sitting on a boisterous gaming chair all day isn't your thing, there are other great options on this list, from the affordable to the premium (looking) to the flexible. Don't let your budget be the limiting factor when searching for an office chair. The only thing holding you back here is your imagination! However, if you have a bit more scratch to spend, you can spend up to $200 or beyond on office chairs.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
