When we think of peripherals to play with, rarely We do it thinking about desk chairs, a peculiar theme, taking into account that our beloved hobby is eminently sedentary. Moreover, we would dare to say that, in the grand scheme of events, choosing a good chair is much more important to choose a high-performance monitor, or a high-performance mouse.
This is, of course, because there is only one body, and it is ours. responsibility to take care of him in each and every one of the activities that we carry out throughout our lives, even some as peaceful as the video game.
Because of this, a while ago we prepared a text with some of the best gaming chairs for our desks, but, knowing that many players they do not match this aesthetic and philosophy, today we wanted to apply the circle even more. We are going to talk to you about the desk chairs that we recommend the most and that are not “Gaming” in aesthetics.
Our favorite models
Moving on to the list of recommended models, as on so many other occasions, we have arranged the list based on the purchase price; but we have also taken into account the purpose of the featured models, starting with those for the office, unpretentious, and sticking with those with the “ergonomic” label behind them.
In addition, we have also taken into account our standard: no “gaming” models, so we will avoid large models that, due to their forms, marketing, or simple functionality, could fall under this category.
As an additional note, those of you who have read the buying guides that we have previously posted on 3DJuegos may be familiar with this premise.
As 3DJuegos PC is a twinned but independent medium, we have decided renew published list in February of this year, with some similar models, but also new inclusions, now that, a few months later, we arrested more experience with us.
FLINTAN task chair
We open the list with the most affordable model that we are going to find in it, as well as one that, we believe, will satisfy the needs of most players who simply want a simple and comfortable chair in which to spend hours sitting throughout the days. This model is the simple FLINTAN from IKEA, our first recommendation.
In itself, the furniture does not seem particularly spectacular, but it has a good construction, with a metal base and base and wooden reinforcements throughout the seating area; its finishes, in breathable fabric and mesh for the backrest, they are suitable for continued use. It doesn’t include any more extras other than the chair itself, which even has armrests, but we can buy it cheaply or mount third-party options with ease, and still, it’s still a terribly attractive value proposition.
There is little to say about this IKEA model other than that, for its price, it is a terribly solid option and easy to recommend. For something else, we can get a more complete chair, or with better finishes; but even for the 69 euros that IKEA asks for it, I find it a solid option, which is also often seen on sale.

IntimaTe WM Heart
Without leaving the compact form factor, and not yet entering the realm of ergonomic chairs, the natural jump Compared to the previous model, for us, it is the WM Heart from the IntimaTe brand, whose office model has won us over for several reasons.
With a reinforced foot and a seat base made of wood, the construction of this model is relatively similar to that of our previous option, but it has a few far superior finishes, with abundant padding in the seat, backrest completely wrapped in breathable mesh, and fixed-position armrests that, although they cannot adapt to all heights, do their job comfortably.
This is my recommended option as long as the IKEA model is at its usual price and we intend to get a model with armrests, I still think that, on sale, the FLINTAN is more attractive, but this model surpasses it in practically all aspects (minus price) at parity.

Amoiu office chair
The last office chair that we are going to introduce in this list, before moving on to the ergonomic models with greater adjustments, is the Amoiu office chair, a brand of European origin, which boasts of having the certifications of associations such as BIFMA or SGS, both entities focused on the evaluation of office supplies.
Speaking of the furniture itself, it is a firm chair, with a metal base, a wooden seat and reinforcements at key points; all this makes this chair a well-built model, which also has adjustments to key areas, such as lumbar support, adjustable armrests and reclining backrest with mesh finishes. Usually, a very round model, which we can also get with a headrest for about ten euros more.
I think it is easy to recommend this Aimou chair, although it is far from the truly premium proposals of the sector, for its price it is a model with few weaknesses and that has an excellent construction. Of course, a small warning: its headrest will not be of much use if you exceed 1.80 in height, so do not opt for it if you want it.

Intimate IWMH ergonomic chair
Arriving at the equator of this list, we make our way to the middle of the text governed by ergonomic models, or what is the same, those seats whose main objective is the adaptability of its environment to the user who is using it. The first model we highlight is also the most affordable: the IntimaTe IWMH chair.
The construction of this chair, articulated by its adjustable base and a floating backrest, is correct within its price range, with reinforced feet and seats in key areas, mesh finishes with little padding and enormous adjustability in both height and recline, as well as in distance from the seat and other key points.
Taking into account that this model is below 150 euros, the price for which we usually see this type of proposal, it is interesting to see that, in addition to having a lower price, this IntimaTe model does not have much to envy, both in construction , as in finishes, to these models, which is why I recommend it.

Ergonomic Amazon Umi chair
We continue the list with a model from a little-known brand, which in turn is a “rebranding” of a generic model, but of high quality. We are talking about Umi’s ergonomic desk chair, a model that we liked for its benefits for its price.
And it is that this chair, built on a reinforced nylon base and with a suspension seat design, like the previous model on this list, has a great adjustability in all its key points and good flexibility. All this, next to your seat and back in dense breathable mesh, make it an interesting model for under 250 euros.
In the range between 150-250 euros, I think there are few models as round, both in terms of finishes and performance, as this one from Umi. Even despite being a rebranding of a generic model, the brand has managed to improve key sections, such as finishes or meshing, compared to these alternatives.

Ergonomic office chair Hbada
We end the list with one of the leading brands when it comes to affordable office chairs. Hbada, a company of Asian origin, has many models to its credit, many of which, despite having good quality, we believe that they are surpassed by other alternatives in aspects such as finishes, reinforcements, or materials. However, if we look at the ergonomic high-performance chairs, there is only one model capable of beating others with a higher price: that of the aforementioned Asian brand.
Again, this is a model with a floating backrest, a nylon reinforced foot with a metal base and mesh as a material, but the incorporation of a reinforced seat with abundant padding, of major adjustments at key points, like the lumbar support and seat position, and other tweaks made by the brand for this model, make it our favorite option at the limit of our budget.
There is little to scratch from this Hbada model, everything it does, it does right, and it features good finishes and a great build. I do not think there is a model in the range of 250-300 euros that equals this in benefits per euro invested, which is why I have placed it on this list and why it has displaced models that appeared in the previous one that we publish in 3DJuegos.
