An executive chair shows people that you are comfortable, a high-end executive chair will show them that and also who’s the real boss of the room by making your presence look powerful and presidential even when sitting.

We help you sort out across the market to separate the plains from the greats with this list of the best high-end executive chairs.
#1 Generation By Knoll
Personal Contribution: My one of my all-time favorite executive chair for the design is the Knoll Generation chair. They start around $475 but with the upgrades, it comes in closer to $900-$1000. Knoll offers a large number of customizations on everything from the finish of the legs to the color of the fabrics and plastics on the chair so it’s easy to find one that matches any office.
The chair also has a very unique ergonomic back that makes it perfect for an open office environment.
#2 Aeron By Herman Miller
Personal Contribution: This is by far one of the most comfortable chairs I’ve ever sat in. The design of this chair’s seat adjusts in the front with an upward or downward slope. Which can sound counter-intuitive since most seats we sit in take the opposite shape. However, it forces the user to sit more upright which helps with sitting for long periods of time. Plus the breathable fabric is amazingly cool even after 8 hours or sitting.
#3 Formid Seat
Business Contribution: Our product Formid is deceptively simple. We minimize the spherical footprint so that muscle activity, circulation, and range of motion are at their full potential. Just like your bone structure, we tailor the seats with multiple parameters to your precise body for optimal ergonomics. We build sustainably with paper using our structural algorithm for automated fabrication. AND we connect your body to the online world so that we can leverage all sorts of new digital body language until neuralink is ready!
