A Guide to Office Chair Sizes
By Rachel Howe on Monday, June 01, 2020

When it comes to office chairs, there are a ton of options. Not every chair will work for everyone, so it's important to find a chair that fits your height and specific needs. Everyone is different and every chair should fit their work needs and body type.

The main chair types include petite chairs, standard chairs and big and tall chairs. If you're not sure which type of chair would work best for you, our office chair size guide will help you distinguish the differences in chair sizes to help you choose the right one for you and your needs.

Petite Chairs

Demi Petite Faux Leather Task Chair

Petite chairs, like this Petite Demi Faux Leather Task Chair, are smaller than your average chair so as to accommodate users of smaller statures. Standard sizes often do not work for these individuals; in contrast, petite chairs feature a shorter back height, narrower seat width and a shallower seat pan. These modifications are added so as to best accommodate petite individuals who may find themselves incredibly uncomfortable in a standard office chair.

Standard Chairs

Standard Computer Chair

Standard computer chairs typically work for most people, but are designed for to have a weight capacity usually around 250 pounds. Generally, these standard sizes are good fits for those who fall between or at 5'4" and 6'1" in terms of height. Even amongst this particular size, there are many differences when it comes to which ergonomic adjustments are available.

Big & Tall Chairs
