Best Office Chairs for Tall People

As a tall person, you’ve had your fair share of awkward seating positions in an office chair. That’s because finding a proper office chair for a tall person is rather difficult, but not impossible. Apart from looking awkward, there are many health issues that can develop from being in this uncomfortable position every day.

Not only that, but productivity is closely linked to your awkward seating position. For many people, having neck and body support are crucial to keep them productive all day in an office. They also need to have a lot of legroom to keep their posture aligned and avoid back pain.

What Features to Consider in an Office Chair for Tall People

Two of the most essential factors in an office chair for tall people are seat height and depth. These two factors need to give you a proper comfort level, to avoid health issues in the long run. Here is what you should look for, when searching for an office chair for tall people:

Seat Height

The first and most obvious feature is the seat height. Most office chairs have height adjustment features to accommodate you. However, many of them have an inadequate height adjustment that makes your body posture look awkward and incorrect by putting pressure on your thighs and hips. So, ideally, your knees should be at a 90 degree angle and your feet properly touching the floor.

To make everything easier for you, here is a seat height chart to help you with your body height:

Maximum Seat Height (from floor to top of seat cushion)

Maximum User Height















Obviously, this is just a guideline because your height differs based on individual characteristics. However, it’s good to keep it as a reference guideline when you can’t test out an office chair.

Seat Depth

Tall people have longer femur bones that indicate a greater seat depth than usual. Usually, the recommended seat depth is 19 inches or more, but office chairs that come with adjustable depth features are even better.

Backrest Height and Seat Width

Apart from height and depth, there are two other factors that are important to discuss. The minimum seat width for a tall person should be 16 inches or more. However, if you’re both a tall and big person, an office chair with 19 inch seat width, or even greater gets the jobs done.

Next, the height of the backrest is important, but only when it includes a headrest. This usually depends on the shape of the headrest, though you want to align your spine or back of your head with the headrest. Also, make sure that the headrest is not fixed, so it’s adjustable.

After covering all these important factors, we have compiled a list of our best office chairs for tall people. These chairs come in a variety of designs, aesthetics, functions, and features, so there’s each for everyone.
