What features top your list as you shop for an office seat? You answered right; lots of features. In my opinion, there are 3 umbrella attributes that hold everything else together: comfort, support, and design.
I don’t know about you, but I think that the Flash Furniture High-Back Executive chair cuts it in terms of design. But how does it stack up against the competition in regard to comfort and support?
That’s what we’ll be finding out in a couple of minutes.
Who Is This Chair For?
Height and weight are 2 significant features that determine whether a seat will be a lemon or a great purchase for you. We all have different body shapes and sizes and, therefore, have different tastes in regard to seat ergonomics.
Cutting to the chase, the Flash Furniture has been designed for small to mid-size users. Scanning through the reviews across the web, I came across several buyers ranging from 5’2’’ to 5’8’’ who say that the seat is pretty much comfortable for them.
I also did come across several 6’ users who reported that the Flash packed everything they ever needed in an affordable office chair.
However, there were several complaints emanating from seat width and depth from users with a huge body frame. Particularly, one plus-size female buyer reported that the seat width was a tad smaller for her curvy body. Find her original review here.
This chair has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. But I did get reports about users who were way past this limit and still didn’t get any problems with it.
As usual, I don’t recommend getting over the top with regard to the weight limit, especially if you don’t have a flexible budget for an impromptu replacement.
Why Should You Consider The Flash Furniture High Back Executive Chair?
It Is Stylish
Well, you don’t have to be employed and in an office to consider an eye-catching seat. Your makeshift office at home also requires an appealing chair that blends in well with its space style.
As this chair proves, you don’t actually need to spend a few hundred bucks to get a chair that gives your friends and colleagues that ‘oh-my-gosh’ excitement.
This seat comes in black and white soft and supple leather. Its base and arms have been endowed with shiny and impressive chrome finishing. It also gets an impressive black accent from the casters and adjustment knobs that complement the finish to give you a chair that will look great in almost any contemporary styled space.
Has An ‘Ergonomic’ Design
Okay, I don’t intend to say that this chair is a match to the Aeron Tilt Limiter from Herman Miller in terms of ergonomic design. But it also has one important feature that several of its high-end competitors fail; lumbar support.
This lumbar zone works by offering continuous support to your lumbar region and cradling you in an optimal working position to minimize back pains.
It’s Comfortable And Supportive
Another impressive feature that I like about this seat is the padding that Flash Furniture has used on the seat and back support. It’s certainly not the most generous that I have seen on office seats. But it’s just enough to protect you from Piriformis Syndrome (feeling numb and tingling in your bum).
Has a High Back Design
It’s quite worrying that most people don’t give this feature enough consideration when purchasing an office chair. Needless to mention it could be the only thing that you’ve always missed.
The Flash Furniture features a high back to support your upper back, shoulders, and neck. On this note, note that not all high back seats come with the lumbar support.
So, it’s quite impressive to see these 2 features in this seat. This unique combination prompts you to sit upright thereby supporting your spine’s natural curve and alignment.
Has An Adjustable Height And Tilt
Having struggled for so long with spinal and back pains, I can’t stress enough the importance of getting a fully adjustable chair.
Unfortunately, these are additional benefits that come at a price.
All in all, no matter how little you want to spend on a seat, always consider a chair that offers height and tilt adjustments, at least.
A seat with an adjustable height allows you to customize your posture for an even position for your in relation to the height of the desktop.
The tilt adjustment, on the other hand, reclines the chair subsequently reducing the pressure on your discs and muscles.
These 2 features work together to safeguard you from seat-related issues including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and chronic back pain forays.
What Other Buyers Say?
Buying an office/gaming chair online is quite tricky considering that you never get to ‘test-drive’ it first. That’s why it’s always important to read previous buyers’ reviews and first-hand feedback to give you a glimpse of how the seat performs.
The Flash Furniture currently has a 4.3/5-star rating from its close to 150 reviewers when typing this (click here to see the latest rating).
Although the number of reviews here is not enough to justify it as a popular model, the feedback from most of its verified purchasers is quite persuasive.
One thing that clearly stands out from the reviews is how easy it is to put together. Most people say that it took roughly 10 minutes especially because you get everything that you need for the assembly process in the package.
Only a few buyers reported missing some parts. But they also acknowledge that that dealer was super responsive to their queries.
Most people also note that this seat has a pleasing design. They tend to point out to its supple and soft leather and the shiny chrome base that gives the chair its modern look.
