When you first see the OFM Posture Series Armless Mid Back Task Chair – Stain Resistant Fabric Swivel Chair, Black (118-2), you probably won’t notice anything major that stands out as it looks like the typical office chair you’d see in an office work environment but there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. First of all, it’s one of the healthiest office budget chairs on the market right now because it’s made to help promote healthy posture and correct unhealthy posture habits. It’s a pretty solid and durable chair as well. While the chair is armless, we’re not sure how it would hold up for people who want to use this as a personal gaming chair, but it’s a great office or computer work chair.
The only thing that really stands out about the design of this chair when compared to other chairs is that it has more handles on the side than your standard office chair, which usually only has one. The back of the chair is a bit different though, as there’s a nice curve feature that helps promote healthy posture and spine alignment. While there’s a lot of this chairs that do this currently, there’s not a lot of chairs that reflect that in their design. The base is pretty standard and there’s nothing really too special about that, except for the material used for the base, which gives it 5-stars in terms of durability.
Having a strong supporting base should be the foundation of any chair, right next to comfort which we’ll talk about in a second. This chair is overall highly durable and is built to last with solid construction materials. It’s also backed by OFM, which is one of the more reliable competitors in the chair market out there today. You shouldn’t have to worry about a weight limit as the maximum limit goes up to 250 pounds for this chair.
Our biggest concern with comfort with this chair is that there’s no armrests so there’s nowhere to rest your arms if you’re relaxing and watching a movie. You could surely try to improvise with something but this chair isn’t really meant for long periods of time when you’re doing something strenuous like gaming. It’s also probably not the best chair in terms of comfort for gamers or people who will be using the chair for long periods of time but it’s a great working chair. It’s also great on the back and feels great to lean back.

Heavy Duty – The base of the chair is constructed with heavy duty weight resistant material that’s rated as a 5-star base. It’s extremely reliable, more so than most office chairs which aren’t as durable, aren’t as comfortable and don’t support nearly the amount of weight that this chair does.
Compact & Small – While some may not like the fact that it doesn’t come with arms, there are some upsides to that. First, it makes construction of the chair a lot quicker the chair so you can get it up and running quicker than a chair with arms. Then, you have the overall weight, because the arms on some chairs can weigh up to 10 pounds or even more, so this makes the chair easier to move around and makes the overall size of the chair smaller.
