Anyone who works in the home office will sooner or later grapple with the question of the right office chair. You are often spoiled for choice, because most desk chairs are ergonomically correct but usually not exactly nice to look at. What do I have to consider when choosing my office chair for my home office? I’ll tell you my tips in the post.
Tip No. 1: Bright and modern office chair design for a nicer home office

Heavy and black was yesterday: What you know as a classic desk chair from your employer in the office, you usually don’t want to have at home. I also tried out various office chairs and even a sitting ball ** for my workspace in the home office.
So the request from Interstuhl * was just right for me: The office chairs from the Pure Interior Editions series ** are not just a sophisticated system. With a white frame and modern upholstery colors, e.g. beige or taupe, it blends harmoniously into the home office.
Setup tip: Set up your home office just as comfortably as the rest of your home. You can find more tips for your study here: CLICK!
If you also value a beautiful design, you will feel much more comfortable in your home office with light colors. That helps me a lot in everyday life to be more motivated and productive.
Sitting ergonomically, what does that mean?
Everyone knows how important sitting properly is by now – but what should you look for in an ergonomic desk chair?
Everyone is individually different – so you should definitely be able to adjust your office chair individually so that you can sit comfortably on it.
Back pain from sitting is a daily companion for many, relieving the spine is extremely important. You can counteract this with an ergonomic office chair.
Tip # 2: adjustable seat height
This is standard for most office chairs nowadays, but you should be able to adjust the seat height continuously to your body size. The legs should ideally touch the floor at a right angle.
Tip # 3: Ergonomic backrest
A good office chair should support the natural posture. The ergonomic shape of the backrest is based on the S-shape of the spine and thus relieves the lower back.
In addition, the backrest follows your movements – forwards and backwards – without the feeling of tipping over. These small movements support more active, healthier sitting.
Tip # 4: adjustable armrests
I always underestimated that with earlier office chairs for optical reasons. How pleasant it actually is when you can support your arms in between. The soft 3D armrests can be ordered with the Pure Interior model and are adjustable in both position and height.
Tip no. 5: Promote exercise, even while sitting
Sitting a lot cannot be avoided with an office job or in the home office. You should get up and move around every now and then.
In the meantime, the so-called Smart-Spring-Technology from Interstuhl supports you. This adapts to yours Weight and your movements. The deep muscles become through micro-movements stimulated – so you do not remain rigidly restricted in your freedom of movement but also always keep moving while sitting.
