1. OFM Leather Gaming Chair

OFM Leather Gaming Chair review

I know what you’re thinking. Why does the first chair on this list have to be a Gaming Chair? Well, the OFM leather gaming chair is one of the best chairs on the market in terms of cost and comfort for a large person. I have always said that the best chairs are the ones that let you rest your head and your back. The OFM gaming chair lets you do both.

The chair is very soft with padded headrest and armrest areas for comfort while gaming or working. To be honest, you don’t even need to get up from this chair. You can rest your back and just take a nap after a long day’s work or meeting. It’s that comfortable.

The chair has a 275 lb weight capacity and can be adjusted to any height for comfort. It has a recline function you can adjust to rest your head and back on. There is also a lot of space between the armrests so I’m pretty sure it could fit any body size, no matter how large.

Pros

  1. It has a recline function that allows you to tilt the chair backwards.
  2. The arms and the entire sitting section are heavily padded for comfort.
  3. It’s movable with wheels, so you can spin around on it or just rock your body while sitting.
  4. There is a lot of room for comfort.
  5. The wheels are made of plastic, not rubber.
  6. The chair is upholstered with leather for comfort

Cons

  1. It is not easy to assemble. It is not hard either but it could take you 5 to 20 minutes to put it together for the first time.
  2. The chair does not come with a cover. This is not necessarily a disadvantage but still, I thought you might want to know beforehand.

Features and Specifications

  • Wheels: Yes
  • Recline function: yes
  • Padded seat: Yes
  • Adjustable: Yes
  • Mobile: Yes, with the wheels.
  • Max Capacity: 275 lbs

2. Flash Furniture Desk Chair

Flash Furniture Desk Chair review

If you are the type of large person who sweats a lot while sitting on a chair for a long time then you should get a chair with mesh upholstery for breath-ability. That is one of the main features of the Flash Furniture Desk Chair.

The back of the chair is built with ventilated mesh to prevent sweating while sitting. Honestly, I think you should go for this if you do not have an air condition or work from a poorly ventilated office because it would help keep your back ventilated at all times.

Apart from the mesh upholstery, the chair comes with other features you would usually find on other cool chairs. I’m talking about features like wheels to move the chair around with, tilt lever, full swivel, adjustable arms and even more.

Although it is advertised to have a capacity of 250 pounds, the chair can take over 300-pound of weight on any given day. That’s why I added it to the list. The chair is completely safe for a heavy person, this has been confirmed by a lot of buyers who use the chair.

Pros

  • Assembling the chair is easy and all tools needed to assemble it are provided during purchase.
  • The chair reclines, so you can rest your back and relax when you’re not working. You can also lock it so it doesn’t lean forward when you don’t want it to.
  • It comes with a breathable mesh for ventilation.

Cons

  • The breathable mesh might begin to itch in the long run if you don’t maintain the chair. Especially if you sit on it naked.
  • The seat is not well padded for long use. So you might not enjoy sitting on it for 10 hours straight

Features and Specifications

  • Wheels: Yes
  • Recline function: yes
  • Padded seat: Yes
  • Adjustable: Yes
  • Mobile: Yes, with the wheels
  • Adjustable Arms: Yes
  • Max Capacity: 300 lbs

Hbada makes some of the most beautiful chairs on the planet. Their chairs are stylishly designed and are sometimes very colourful. The white office chair is a perfect description of a Habda chair. The chair comes with so many movable parts and space. You can flip the arms up and down, the height is adjustable and it has a 360-degree swivel.

Before I forget, it also comes with a breathable mesh so you don’t feel hot or uncomfortable while sitting on it. The chair is a very professional look and yet, elegant. You can use it in your bedroom, workspace or anywhere else in your home.

The chair does not come assembled, so you have to put it together when it’s delivered to you. This might sound like a dealbreaker but assembling it is not hard because it comes with an instruction manual, a glove and a hardware fitting bag. Basically, everything you need to put the chair together is provided, unlike other chairs.

The chair is 19 inches in height from the seat and padded for comfort. The wheels are silent during movement and they are both shock-absorbing and wear-resistant.

Pros

  • Assembling the chair is easy and all tools needed to assemble it are provided during purchase.
  • You can basically turn the chair in most positions as it’s very mobile and convertible.
  • The wheels are silent and shock-absorbing
  • The chair can carry a large person. The max capacity is over 250 lbs
  • The design is very minimalistic and can match the design of any home or office.
  • The height is easily adjustable.

Cons

  • If you do not maintain the chair then the mesh would itch your body when you get sweaty or sit on it naked.
  • It could look dirty if not properly taken care of because it’s white in some parts.

Features and Specifications

  • Wheels: Yes
  • Recline function: yes
  • Padded seat: Yes
  • Adjustable: Yes
  • Mobile: Yes, with the wheels
  • Adjustable Arms: Yes

What to look out for when buying an office chair for a Large Person

Max Capacity:

This is important because we’re focusing on chairs that can carry a large person. Most chairs exceed expectations while some are nothing to write home about. A chair’s max capacity could be 250 lbs but would still hold a larger weight while some would break on lesser weight. You can’t really tell by the seller’s description. So the right place to confirm this is in the reviews where buyers share their experiences about the chair.

So be sure to check the comments and reviews of the chair before hitting the “buy” button.

Price Worth:

While so many chairs out there are built for large persons, some of them are not as strong or long-lasting as their price. So, be sure to consult other buyers before paying that huge amount of money for an expensive chair. What did the reviews say? Is it worth is?

Breath-ability:

I used to have a large chair that felt very good when I sat on it. Then after about 2 hours when I stand up to stretch or grab a snack, my lower back would feel moist. It was weird. There was no breathable mesh or open space for ventilation behind the chair and it was a big one. So, be sure to buy a chair that has a lot of room or mesh for proper ventilation, especially if you work from a room or office without an Aircondition.

Mobility:

Some chairs do not come with wheels and some might come with rough, squeaky wheels. A chair’s movement is as important as the chair itself because sometimes, all you want to do is spin in excitement or simply rest your back. As a large person, having a chair that is very mobile would also mean you can cruise around on the chair without having to get up all the time to adjust it. A mobile chair with smooth wheels would also be easy to move when you decide to relocate.

Height:

Chair heights vary just like shoe sizes. But let’s back up a little. There are some chairs that aren’t just high enough for your table. There are also some chairs that do not have height adjustments, meaning you can’t pull them up or down when you want to. Be sure to check for these while buying your next chair for a large person.
