Songmics Office Computer Desk Chair : Extremely customizable and comfortable chair. Recommended for gaming and movie watching!

Update, fantastic chair easy to assemble, very comfortable, material very soft , no noise from the metal pieces. Lumbar support really helps too.

I was looking for a new office chair for a long while. With so many options to choose from it was hard to decide which manufacturer/seller to buy it from. I gotta say this chair was one of my best amazon purchases. Quality of the chair is amazing. It’s very comfortable and the leather feels great. It comes with instruction manual and is pretty easy to assemble. I got 2 spare wheels and some extra screws which is commendable. All in all, if you are in market for an office chair this one is pretty easy to recommend.

Super comfortable office chair. I’m bad at decision making at the best of times, and it’s especially hard to know what choice to make when it comes to something that’s intended to last for years on end and will be used daily. My last office chair was a mostly plastic ikea model that didn’t exactly break the bank. It had a metal base and plastic seat and while easy to assemble, it wasn’t overly comfortable when use for hours on end. To add to the negatives, before long a crack developed on the chair and so it didn’t wind up being buy of the centuryto avoid making the same mistake price, i’ve decided to go to the higher end of the market with this impressive looking chair. Made with durable pu leather and featuring the kind of ‘bells and whistles’ that my previous office chair lacked (padded arm rests, a high back, adjustable foot rest) this adds a touch of luxury to my office experience and allows me to feel comfortable as i work, instead of the very oppositethe chair was very easy to piece together, taking around ten minutes in total (there are clear instructions and it’s a straight forward process). In its assembled state, it’s impressive to behold. The foot stand (70cm) is very sturdy and the wheels move well on my capret, so i don’t feel at all restricted movement wise. The foam padding in the seat really does make a difference. It cradles you just enough to add to your comfort level, and this combined with the lengthy back of the seat ensures that the comfort is very much ‘full body’. Here are the specifications for the Songmics Office Computer Desk Chair:

  • Durable and stability – With high safety, upgrade accessories like armrests, tray, wheels, gas bar are all tested by BIFMA, product stability tested by SGS, adopt large five-star foot stand which diameter is 70 cm
  • High-quality materials – Excellent PU leather fabrics and high density thick foam which has good elasticity, even not easy deformation long-term use . High quality PU wheels, less damage to the floor, good mute effect. Suit for hard floors such as parquet, laminate, ceramic tile, PVC and so on
  • Proper structure design – ergonomic designed pillow to mitigate neck strain and well fit the body, feel comfortable when sit on due to the 150 degrees tilt of seat and the footrest
  • Exquisite design – With adjustable tilt and height lift device to ensure its practicability and anti-loose screws to ensure its safety
  • Spare parts – Additional wheels and screws as spare. Plastic box packaging screw and set number to prevent its loose or missing

It is quite a good chair, very comfortable and robust. It is quite a good chair, very comfortable and robust. It only gets a three because the footrest has been fastened to the underside of the chair extremely wonkily. Unfortuantely it was delivered whilst i was abroad meaning that i missed the one month return window. This does not excuse the poor quality control though. I would be happy to recommend the chair if the retailer was prepared to discuss putting this matter right. Addendum: i am very happy to revise my rating up to four stars on the basis that the retailer has made contact seeking to redress the above-mentioned situation with a number of satisfactory solutions despite not being contractually obliged to do so. This has restored my confidence in the retailer who i trust will be raising the quality control issue with the manufacturer. As stated previously, notwithstanding the misplacement of the footrest mechanism, this is a chair i would be prepared to seek out in future on the basis of its function, aesthetic, build quality and retailer support. I can therefore recommend it for consumers’ serious consideration.

Needed a new chair as my old one had broken after 4 years, saw this on amazon, and has lived up to my expectation.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I wanted a good quality chair for a fair price and I feel
  • OK if you don’t use foot rest.
  • It is quite a good chair, very comfortable and robust

Good chair for the price, it reclines to pretty much straight back. The only bad point i can really say is that it could feel a bit more solid.

It is quite big but great chair.

    I wanted a good quality chair for a fair price and i feel. I wanted a good quality chair for a fair price and i feel i made the right choice. Arrived well packaged, comfortable, sturdy. I like the height adjusting mechanism, my previous chair piston had some tiered plastic bits that didn’t last. I wasn’t aware the foot stool was manually pulled out though this is better for me. Only issues to point out were during assembly, when connecting the back to the seat, it took me a while to get the bolt holes to align and these two sections are a bit heavy. I also wasn’t sure if i could just pop on the wheels as i was scared to damage them but it turns out you do pop them in. There was a spare long bolt packaged with 2 non spare short bolts with no indication which was confusing. Takes half an hour to assemble if you exclude removing packaging and trying to be cautious.

      1. Four stars because:-short at the back for people above average height, so the cushion is not where it should be for us, re. -do not sit down mainly at the front part of the chair, as you will fall flat on yer arse and it could be dangerous a bit, because of the extra weight for the leg rest, which sits in front of the chair, mainly – it will send both you and the chair tumbling down on each otherotherwise great quality.

    1. Ok if you don’t use foot rest. . Chair is very comfy but a bit on the low side. Foot rest is a bit of a gimmick, has oily runners that get clear oil on your clothes, it is not very comfy either as it sticks out straight and not very far so you end up resting only the top of your calf muscles. It is standard gas lift size, so i’ve changed gas lift to give me an extra few cms of height. In daily use and seems fine.

    1. And must say with some of the reports im glad i took the plunge yes the leg thing is. Yer had the chair for a few days now and must say with some of the reports im glad i took the plunge yes the leg thing is a lil gimmicky could do with a handle system to pull it in and a notch system fo size and be a lil longer but i have a foot poof under my table and this goes under my ankles and the poof takes my feet just right so ideal for me padding could be a lil more solid but its passable just hope it stands the test of time. Ok now i have had this a little longer a month and a halfish i will add that the arms do not stand the test of time as i was worried they wouldn’t as they have gone flat in places such a shame looks like i am going to haft to diy some cushioning. Leg bits fine and still nice to lean back on.

    1. A real quality product at a great price. I am currently sitting in this bad boy as i type this. So far i have no complaints about it, compared to other chairs i’ve had in the past it has a real quality feel and an abundance of padding. The recline feature is a real icing on the cake, being able to put your feet up and lay back is incredibly relaxing.

    Comfortable but could do with more lumbar support. Songmics responded and followed up to my initial review, even got a partial refund – up to 4 stars now.
