Black Drafting Chairs & Office Stools

Artists, designers and technicians often use elevated work surfaces. A black drafting chair or stool provides the higher seat needed to work comfortably at a drafting table or workbench. These products include backless stools that offer compact seating and adjustable chairs with ergonomic backrests and arms. The broad range of chair styles and brands such as Balt, Office Star and Safco make it easy to find chairs at Staples that are suitable for home offices, art and design studios or commercial spaces.

A Black Drafting Chair Is an Ergonomic Seating Option
Sitting in the correct position can enhance productivity and reduce fatigue, and an adjustable chair gives office workers control over their seated posture. Almost every drafting chair has a seat-height adjustment so you can match your seat to your work surface, and many have adjustable footrings that provide leg support. Swivelling, backless stools with disk or saddle-style seats allow users to move freely, making them an excellent choice for active workers. High-back drafting chairs with lumbar supports offer enhanced comfort and help minimize the stress placed on the lower back when sitting at a desk. Some drafting chairs also have armrests that reduce shoulder and wrist fatigue while you're drawing or typing.

Use a Black Drafting Stool in Any Office Setting
Black is a neutral color you can use with traditional or contemporary decor. Use an upholstered drafting chair to accent wooden desks or case goods in private offices, or pair simpler stools with modern, modular workstations to create an uncluttered look in shared spaces. The diverse finishes used on these products also handle a broad range of office needs. Durable upholstery fabrics offer a soft look that's ideal for commercial office settings, while faux leather chairs create a rich and luxurious appearance. Tough self-skinned urethane cushions are almost impervious to stains and wear, making them an excellent option for classrooms or industrial settings.

What Type of Bases Do Black Drafting Stools Have?
Most of these products have five-star bases made from rugged materials such as steel or nylon. They resist tipping and offer stable support, even with the chair's seat at the highest position. Many models have dual-wheel casters that protect floors from damage and roll smoothly over both carpet and hard flooring.

How High Is a Drafting Chair's Seat?
The exact height of a chair's seat varies depending on the model chosen, but most models have seats that are between 19 and 30 inches high. Decide if you want an adjustable drafting chair, and measure the height of the table or counter before making your final choice.

When Should You Replace a Drafting Chair?
Drafting chairs provide years of reliable service but wear and damage eventually take their toll. Inspect seating on a regular basis and consider replacing chairs with torn upholstery, worn cushions or controls that don't work. Chairs that creak or pop when you sit down may have hidden structural damage, and missing or broken casters can compromise worker safety.

A black drafting chair combines an elevated seating position with ergonomic features that enhance user comfort. Find a chair for almost any office when you browse the selection of seating products available at Staples.
