Big & Tall Office Chairs

Provide comfortable seating for everyone with a few big and tall office chairs throughout the office and waiting room. Chairs designed to support larger, taller people offer a variety of comfort options instead of having them sit uncomfortably in standard chairs. Staples has a selection of furniture and seating options for every individual available from brands, such as La-Z-Boy, HON, Flash Furniture, and Serta.

Comfortable big and tall office chairs with style
Chairs covered with leather, faux leather, and fabric add style to the office, regardless of their size. Some have breathable mesh backs for cool comfort. A wider seat base and armrests that adjust in height and width provide maximum comfort during the workday. Select models have built-in headrests and footrests for proper support at any workstation. Most chairs provide maximum comfort for approximately 8-10 hour intervals, depending on the specific chair.

Choose the right big and tall office chairs for the office
Know the weight rating needed when purchasing for a specific individual as most chairs have weight limits of 300-500 pounds. Consider how long staff use the chairs because maximum support typically lasts 8-10 hours. There are select chairs that offer all-day support. Most of these chairs have taller backrests for individuals taller than 6 feet 4 inches. Get a chair with proper height and seat adjustments because staff sometimes jump from one chair to another throughout the day. For chairs that tilt, look for one with a tilt-lock option for comfort and safety.

Big and tall office chairs for waiting rooms and breakrooms
Larger chairs offer comfort for taller or larger individuals. Those who are taller won't struggle to sit without tripping others. Other individuals can seek comfort in sturdy, wider chairs designed to withstand weights of 300 - 500 pounds, depending on the chair model. Models are available both with and without armrests. The chairs' leather, vinyl, or fabric seats won't contrast with other office furniture. Select models are stackable making storage and cleaning easier.

What parts of big and tall office chairs are adjustable?
On executive and desk chairs, the height and armrests adjust easily for maximum comfort. These chairs typically adjust to a higher level than standard chairs for taller individuals. Select chair models have adjustable armrests to allow for a wider seating area. On chairs that have lumbar support, adjust this when being seated as the adjustments are different for every individual.

Do the big and tall office chairs have weight limits?
Yes, the weight limit varies between chair types. Most of the available chairs have weight limits of 300-500 pounds, while there are chairs available that support more than 800 pounds. It's important to know the weight limit needed before purchasing the chairs.

Are big and tall office chairs easy to maneuver?
Executive, desk, and drafting chairs have casters that move easily on hardwood or laminate floors and low-pile carpeting. For areas with high-pile carpeting, a desk mat allows free movement without ruining the carpet. Chairs without casters have glides for movement across smooth floors.
