Fabric office chairs offer versatility and comfort in the workplace as well as the home. To find an option with the right blend of comfort, ergonomics and style, shop Staples' collection. It contains chairs from trusted brands such as HON, Tempur-Pedic, La-Z-Boy, Office Star and Staples.

Choose a Fabric Office Chair That Suits the Work
There are fabric chairs suitable for every function, from quick tasks to constant use. Chairs are rated for both weight and usage time. For maximum lifespan, opt for a chair designed for 24-hour usage when furnishing a call center or other location that functions around the clock. For most offices, a chair with an 8- to 10-hour rating is sufficient.

Select a fabric-upholstered chair with enough support for the worker and the job. A task chair, which often has a minimalist backrest and no armrests, is well suited to workstations that are used only a few hours each day, such as filing areas. Mid-back chairs offer back support but not neck or head support, and high-back chairs usually offer headrests.

Prioritize Practicality
Outfit your reception area with practical chairs that make guests feel welcome. Reception chairs usually have metal frames and wide seats and backrests, but they aren't intended for all-day use, so they don't have the ergonomic support of desk chairs. Some reception chairs have fabric-covered armrests. Accent chairs are somewhat similar to reception chairs, but they often boast a more formal look that's appropriate for a living room or high-end space for receiving guests and clients.

Place counter-height fabric chairs at kitchen bars and elevated work tables. Most chairs of this type are built similarly to task chairs, but some are designed for sitting during long work sessions. Many have a built-in metal footrest for comfort. Stools with adjustable heights are another option.

You can also find fabric-covered chairs that are stackable, offering the convenience of more utilitarian chairs without sacrificing attractive looks. To improve core muscle strength, consider a fabric-covered ball chair. This type of chair uses a balance ball base that promotes good body mechanics, but is covered in soft fabric and affixed to a sturdy base so that it's appropriate for the modern office.

Consider the Fabric Type
Polyester is the most popular type of fabric for office chair upholstery. It's generally tough, and some companies make patented varieties that offer enhanced stain resistance and durability. Poly-cotton blends combine the practicality of polyester with soft, breathable cotton.

Another frequently used synthetic material is microfiber. Its soft feel and rich, matte look is luxurious, but it is easy to clean and is budget-friendly. Liquid usually beads on microfiber instead of sinking in and staining, which makes it attractive for conference rooms, where people often eat and drink while they work.

Mesh fabric makes chairs extra breathable, encouraging air circulation that is key to cool comfort throughout the day. Select an ergonomic mid-back or high-back chair with mesh that covers both the back and the seat, or get a more traditional look with breathable opaque fabric covered with a mesh exterior.
