Here’s my list of quality & best office chairs under $200:

1. Modway Articulate Office Chair

Modway Articulate is great inexpensive office desk chair. It has adjustable armrests and ergonomic shape.

Modway Articulate Office Chair is great choice for people who like typical design of office chairs. It will look great in every office or room. Why? It doesn’t look like gaming chair, it doesn’t look like big, executive chair. Just simple, good and cheap office chair with mesh (which is also great when is hot in the office).

You can choose from 5 different colors! Modway gives us: black, white, blue, green and red. Black version has option with mesh and vinyl seat.

Thanks to the mesh backrest of this chair you don’t need to be worried about sweating. I think it’s important when you live in city where is sunny all the time.

Good and simple office chair with mesh and nice design. If you need something quite cheap with proper ergonomic this chair will be great for you (unless you’re small – read more below)

Modway chair has of course proper, ergonomic shape which provide enough comfort during long work in the office. People on Amazon recommended this chair especially when you have back problems (click here to read reviews).

Quality of the chair is highlighted by five hooded dual-caster wheels which both look and work great.

  • Mesh backrest which helps your skin breath
  • Ergonomic shape with lumbar support (will help with back pain)
  • Easy assembly
  • Adjustable armrests

Office Factor Ergonomic Office Chair is awesome choice for people who want to keep good posture of the body while working at the desk. It has flip-up and flip-down armrests.

Executive Ergonomic Office Chair from Office Factor is second cheap chair in our ranking of best office chairs under $200. What is cool in it? At first design!

Yeah, I know that design is not really important when you buy new chair. Comfort is on the top of list. But this chair has both!

Technical Details:
Item Weight: 34 pounds

I must admit that I just love design of this chair. Looks a little bit futuristic thanks to the shape and chromed accents which makes this chair even better. Chair has also mesh back, so it’s also advantage.

Chair with good price/quality balance. If you like good design and you need proper ergonomic this chair should be good for you. And you have 5 years warranty, madness!

But along with great design this cheap chair gives us also back angle adjustment! This feature makes this chair great for both tall and small people. If you properly configure this chair long working or playing on your PC shouldn’t be problem anymore.

  • It’s good both for short and tall people

Our no. #3 is Mesh Computer Office Chair from TOPSKY. Ergonomic chair in the true sense of the word. Looks like perfect example of cheap and top office chair for someone who need support for his neck and back.

My personal favorite because it has ergonomic shape, good design, a lot of customizations and nice price (click here to check the price)

Similar to headrest you can also change armrest. 3inch should be enough to customize armrest to anybody. Nice thing is also soft pad of armrests. During long work you don’t need to be worried about your elbow.

Lumbar support. How do you think, it’s also adjustable? Of course it is! You have special knob control to change lumbar support position.

TOPSKY gives us 3 colors of this cheap but pretty cool chair. Black, grey and green. If you have some plants in your office green color could looks really nice.

Pros & Cons

  • Lumbar support is adjustable too
  • Armrest is also adjustable
  • Soft pad armrest
  • 3 colors to choose
  • Awesome choice for someone who work a lot and need neck and back support
  • Price is bargain for that kind of great office chair
  • Actually I couldn’t find anything important. I read that one person missed some screws but producer quickly helped with that (so maybe it’s even more advantage than disadvantage?)

4. Ficmax Ergonomic Chair with Racing Style

Ficmax is office chair in gaming (racing) style. It has lumbar and neck pillow which help you avoid developing back problems. Adjustable armrests are also big advantage of this chair.

Now it’s time for something slightly different than typical office chair. Another cheap chair in our ranking chairs under $200, but this time it’s kind of gaming chair!

I wrote before many times that gaming chairs are also very good for office work if they have proper ergonomic etc. Maybe you saw my big article with best gaming chairs in 2017. Anyway Ficmax Ergonomic High-back is one of very good gaming chairs which you can also use in your office as good chair for work.

Seat Height: 18.8″-22.0″

If you compare this chair with other gaming chairs you will see that the price of this chair is like bargain. How about quality?

It’s very good choice for people who like this kind of chairs but don’t have budget for DXRacer or AKRacing chair.

Great gaming chair (also could be use as office chair) with neck and lumbar pillow (lumbar pillow have massage function). A lot of colors to choose, definitely you should look closer on this chair.

Ficmac Ergonomic High-Back has two pillows (for neck and lumbar support). What is interesting? Lumbar pillow has electric massage function! It works with USB so you don’t need extra charger. People in reviews of this chair say that massage is actually really powerful. Nice!

5. Office Star Desk Chair

Office Star Chair is the last office chair under 200 from my ranking. With ergonomic shape of the backrest you can be sure that you will avoid lumbar spine problems.

Literally thousands positive reviews, great price and quality – it’s top office chair from Office Star.

Pretty simple but also very good ergonomic & comfortable computer chair. If you’re looking something really classic and nothing fancy you will like this chair.

Technical Details:
Minimum Seat Height: 17.75”
Maximum Seat Height: 21.75”
Weight Capacity: 250 lbs

Office Star chair have everything what you can expect from cheap chair under $200: breathable mesh seat and back, lumbar support, height adjustment. All necessary things.

Most classic office chair from the ranking. It will be good for someone who like simplicity. But for this price I’d choose something different.

Manufacturer gives us three colors of chair: black, grey and white (white is a little bit over the budget). The best look has white version and probably that’s the reason it’s most expensive.

Base of the chair is heavy and stabile plus it has silver accents which gives the chair nice look.
Chair also has padded flip arms which also have accents with silver color.

Office Star also offers this chair in slightly different version – with neck support but price is over the budget so I don’t want to talk too much about this feature.

Pros & Cons

  • Ergonomic shape
  • Nice silver accents
  • Breathable mesh seat and back
  • In this price you probably can get something better (like chairs above)


I hope that my ranking of best office chairs under $200 of 2018 will help you make proper choice. I picked a few types of chairs (like typical office chair, gaming chair, ergonomic chair) and in my opinion every one of them is the best in their category. Which category you prefer?

You need to decide by yourself. If your like nice design Office Factor chair could be your choice. Do you like gaming chairs? You’ll probably like Ficmac chair. Whatever your choice will be you can be sure that every of above chairs will be great for your office work / play. Good luck!
