Ikea MARKUS – Swivel chair : This is the best office chair i have ever sat in

Not for those long in the body. . If your tall from the waist up this chair probably won’t suit you. I find that the bottom of the headrest digs in my shoulders, whilst almost missing my head. As much as i’ve tried to work around this, i find the fact i lean forward ever so slightly to avoid the headrest, gives me neck ache. If not for this issue it would an excellent chair for the money ikea charge.

This is the best office chair i have ever sat in. Buy this chair from ikea it is much cheaper. This is the best office chair i have ever sat in, the lower back support is soft and flexible so it doesn’t ‘stick in’ to your lower back and cause back ache after sitting for hours. Leaning back in this chair is more comfortable as the whole chair doesn’t recline like most office chairs, it has a completely different action whereas the back slides down when you lean back giving a more ergonomic recline.

Good build quality and ergonomy for the price. . For the price ikea markus is remarkably well built and has great egonomy. + seat and neckrest is real leather (beware of faux imitation leather on chairs, as it tends to flake with some wear). + foot/base of the chair is robust metal+ back provides proper support+ 10 year warranty, ikea built these to lastthe chair may not look comfortable, but it actually provides great back support and is really comfortable for long sessions. Most chairs in this price range that look like recliners or racing seats, are really bad for your back in the long run. Markus does however not have adjustable arm-rest, but i would rather have a stationary solid arm-rest than a flimsy one that breaks. I highly recommend this chair for office and gaming use. Protip: if you lock the back into a stationary position, you might notice that there is still a little play. To minimize this you should also adjust the swivel to the stiffest possible, prior to locking it. Here are the specifications for the Ikea MARKUS – Swivel chair:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent addition to my loft bedroom
  • This is the best office chair i have ever sat in
  • Not for those long in the body.

When i first bought this chair last year, it seemed perfect – comfortable, adjustable, great all round. So, here i am, 1 year on, and it’s started giving me static electric shocks. I work at my computer, swivel around, get up and bang i get an electric shock. I would have given this five stars, but not now. For £130, i expect better than this. Think very carefully before you buy one of these chairs.

Really satisfied with the the chair😊. Really satisfied with the the chair😊.
