When you’re spending this much on a chair, you want to be assured that it will last, and Steelcase has one of the best track records around when it comes to durability. Go to any office-furniture liquidator, and you’ll find dozens of old Steelcase task chairs in perfectly serviceable condition from decades prior. The Gesture, while more complex than older chair designs, has all the characteristics of a sturdy design: Nothing feels hollow or chintzy, and there’s no rattling and very little play in the moving parts. Adjustments happen smoothly and predictably with no jerkiness. The overall package conveys a high degree of polish. Compare that with what you get in the Herman Miller Embody, which, while comfortable, feels like it’s made of chintzy plastic. In fact, with our test unit of the Embody, the top section of its signature dynamic back array snapped in transit from one testing location to the next. This problem didn’t affect performance, but we expected more out of a chair in the $1,200 range.

Finally, while the Gesture is a great chair, it is not the ergonomic revolution its marketing materials suggest. We have no doubt that Steelcase did in fact undertake a global posture study across six continents, surveying 2,000 people to help design the chair. But fancy armrests and a couple of extra degrees of reclining aside, the Gesture feels similar to any other ergonomic task chair in the $1,000 range. In fact, were it not for the redesigned armrests and improved control scheme, the Gesture would pretty much be the old Steelcase Leap by a different name.

The Gesture is also attractively designed and more compact than any other full-featured task chair; Steelcase offers dozens of finishing options, too. This means it will look better in a wider variety of spaces than its competitors. And in addition to being more comfortable, its highly adjustable arms let you stow the chair almost anywhere since you can lower them and tuck them in as needed to fit under a smaller desk. Steelcase is also renowned for its build quality, and the Gesture is no exception, but should anything go wrong, the company’s chairs are backed by a 12-year warranty.

We spent a week and change sitting in the Markus, one of the few task chairs that anyone has designated as a standout at the $200 pricing tier. The Markus came to our attention through a Lifehacker article that asked readers to offer their own task-chair recommendations. Of the dozens of models the commenters put forward, the IKEA chair was one of the five most commonly mentioned, and of the five it was far and away the cheapest (other picks included the Herman Miller Aeron and Embody, and the Steelcase Leap). In subsequent voting, the IKEA chair took second place.

If you want a mesh chair because your office lacks climate control, or if you are prone to perspiring, you might prefer mesh to the Steelcase chairs’ solid foam cushioning. The mesh style was popularized by the iconic Herman Miller Aeron in 1994, and this chair is still the best of its kind. Although Herman Miller has released several model lines above and below the Aeron in price, the Aeron’s continued success and storied reputation make it an easy pick. The motion ergonomics aren’t as comfortable or as natural feeling as those found on the newer Steelcase designs, nor is the seat cushion as soft or as supportive of multiple positions due to its hard edge, but this chair remains one of the most comfortable options available, and it comes with a 12-year warranty.

December 23, 2015: After a year of testing, our new office chair pick is the Steelcase Gesture. It has a wider range of adjustments than any other chair. If the Gesture isn’t available, we recommend our previous pick, the Steelcase Leap. If you are prone to perspiring, we recommend the Herman Miller Aeron, which has a mesh back and seat. And if you can’t spend $900-plus on an office chair, the IKEA Markus is a good bargain.

Herman Miller’s legendary Aeron chair is every bit as comfortable as the Steelcase Gesture and Leap—if you maintain good posture. Its breathable mesh design also makes it a great choice for people who sweat a lot or who don’t like to run the AC in the summer. But it doesn’t have the adjustability of the Gesture or the customizability of either of the Steelcase models. If you use an Aeron and you like it, you have no reason to upgrade. Similarly, if you have your heart set on an Aeron, you won’t be disappointed if you buy it. But the Gesture offers more adjustability for the same price and feels more comfortable if you’re not practicing perfect posture. The Aeron’s hard seat edge is murder on the quads if you’re not at the ideal seat height for more than a couple of minutes. Also, while the Aeron’s mesh gives it its signature look, the design also means that you have to dust the area directly beneath the seat, because it gets gross pretty quickly.
