Office Furniture Chairs Come In Many Styles: Office furniture chairs come in all sizes, shapes, designs and materials. And though desks have been around for hundreds of years, in one form or another, the modern office chair was first used in the mid to late 1800's. The closest thing to a modern office chair was used by Charles Darwin. He put wheels on his chair so that he could move around easier when reaching for his specimens. Since that time, and especially during the 1900's, the office chair has evolved a lot. Here are some of the types of office furniture chairs that can be found in most offices today.
There are many points to think about when purchasing your ergonomic office chair. You have to look for a seat that is adjustable, so that you can modify it to suit your own special requirements. You also want to find a seat that can support your back (as should be) and spine, specially in the lumbar area, which can help prevent pain and injury caused by sitting in the same position for long periods of time. You also want to make certain that the seat is big enough to be comfy also. You should look for an office chair that has arm rests, which can hold up your arms as you type, avoiding shoulder and neck damage, as well as a chair that can swivel.
Wood chairs - these were found a lot before modern office furniture chairs became an ergonomic science, but the can still be found today. However, they usually only swivel and rise up and down and are not ergonomic in other ways.
A true weatherproof chair will last for several years even if it is constantly being exposed to the elements. You can keep your garden rocker out all year round without worrying about possible damage from the weather. With a weatherproof garden rocking chair you will be able to enjoy those occasional warm winter days without having to drag your furniture out from the garage.
Back to the Chair: On your ergonomic office chair, it is important to remember that you need to use it properly to reap the benefits. If it is adjustable, adjust it to where it is able to support your lower and mid back. A head-rest may be there to help you support your head and keep you from assuming a forward head carriage position. If there are armrests, use them. If your shoulders are rolling forward, learn to bring them close to the backrest of your chair. Remember, the way you use your body affects the way you live, and learning desk ergonomics can help you live a healthier lifestyle!
