With mesh office chairs becoming apparently preferred over foam-leather office chairs, we’ve wondered: Are conventional office chairs going the way of the dodo? We found out that there are such office chairs currently available in the market that can go toe to toe with the newfangled office chairs. While somewhat traditional in design, foam-leather office chairs come with several of the same features of mesh office chairs, making the former just as comfortable and useful as the latter. For proof, we present to you the Flash Furniture Mid Back Office Chair.

Most (if not all) mesh office chairs marketers tout these chairs as being more comfortable than foam-leather office chairs. They are only partially right. No foam-leather office chair can allow air to circulate around your body while you’re in it like a mesh office chair, but all the foam-leather office chairs currently available in the market are just as comfortable as the mesh office chairs commercially available, too. Take for example the Flash Furniture Mid Back Office Chair. It comes with several features that together make it a comfortable seat indeed. These features are: built-in lumbar support, tilt tension control, spring tilt control mechanism, pneumatic seat height adjustment, padded nylon loop arms, soft durable leather-polyurethane LeatherSoft upholstery, and industry-standard mid-back design. We doubt you could find a foam-leather or mesh office chair that’s easier to adjust, gives more control, and comes with parts that are more comfortable and sturdy than it. Unless you live in a place that gets as hot as Death Valley, we find no reason for you to worry about not having a high volume of air move constantly around your body while seated in it.
But this doesn’t mean the office chair is just a remarkably cozy seat. It comes with several features that make it a sturdy chair as well. These features are heavy-duty nylon base and dual-wheel casters. Having such a base ensures the office chair will be able to support your weight for years of use without breaking apart. Having such casters ensures you’ll be able to roll in it to and from multiple work areas without having an accident. Thus, it’s safe to use indeed. The rest of its features are easy assembly, CA117 fire-retardant foam, and stylish contemporary contrasting white stitching.
Although the office chair is made of quality materials (i.e., stainless steel, wood, leather, nylon, and foam), according to some consumers, it might break apart only after a few months of use. They blame the screws, which don’t tighten, and certain parts that are brittle. Another complaint is its cushion isn’t as comfortable as it should be and therefore will force the user to buy an extra cushion just to be comfortable in it, making using it a pain. Nonetheless, it has received a commendable rating of 4 stars out of 5 on Amazon, where it’s currently being sold for $109.00 (shipping will be free of charge).
If you want the best deal you should buy this on Amazon and here's why:
- All the reviews are like having hundreds of really good friends give you their personal experience with the chair, then taking all of that personal experience and giving it an easy to understand star rating. You know you're buying quality when there are hundreds of fans of the product.
- A friendly UPS driver will deliver it right to your door. No waiting in line, no hauling it in your car. No sore muscles or achy back the next day.
- Amazon has the best price 99% of the time. Amazon constantly watches competitor pricing and makes sure you get the best deal. They do a ton of business and take advantage of economies of scale, which means you get the savings!
- FREE shipping. Enough said.
- Your local office store has a limited selection. On top of that, most of the chairs they sell are their store brand, meaning you get fewer choices and are paying more for a lower quality chair that they make maximum profits on.
- Returns are easy. Amazon recently shipped a car, and they ship a ton of large items, all day, every day. If they can ship a car, rest assured, you will get your chair in perfect condition. BUT, if for any reason it comes damaged, it is super easy to return. Just print out a UPS label, slap it on the box and a friendly UPS driver will pick it up, free of charge. This is way easier than waiting in a return line at Office Depot and talking with a bored, angsty teenage sales clerk.
