Flash Furniture Mesh Executive Office Chair

  • Mesh upholstery
  • Lumbar support
  • Height-adjustable arms
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

The Flash Furniture Mesh Chair was made for people who like to keep cool while they work. Both the backrest and the seat are upholstered in a breathable mesh that allows abundant airflow.

There are a few leather accents on the sides of the seat that look very stylish.

With regards to comfort, the seat is a bit on the firm side, so you might need a seat cushion if you’re planning to work for more than 8 hours.

The ergonomic back is curved to fit the shape of your spine, and the added lumbar curve adds to the support this chair provides.

Adjustability and assembly

You can swivel 360º while seated or adjust the height of the seat from 17.5’’ to 21.75’’. The arms are padded, they can also be adjusted for height, and you get 6.5’’ of wiggle room.

You can rock a bit in this chair by releasing the tilt lever outwards, or you can lock it in an upright position. The package arrives wrapped well and includes all the tools needed for assembly.

Assembly is pretty simple and should take around 30 minutes max. Overall this model doesn’t come with bells and whistles, but most people that bought it say it does what it’s supposed to.

What We Like

  • Budget-friendly price
  • Ergonomic features
  • Some adjustable features

What We Don’t Like

  • The seat is on the firm side

Flash Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair

Flash Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair

  • Adjustable headrest
  • Padded pivot arms
  • Reclines to 3 positions
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

If you’re looking for a decent mesh chair with strong ergonomic support, this is an exceptional model to consider.

It comes with a high back design and an adjustable headrest, which should be tall enough for people up to 6’2’’ tall. You can move the headrest up and down or pivot it if needed.

The seat doesn’t come with padding but the mesh has some flex and spring to it, which makes it quite comfortable even after long hours of work.

The edge of the seat is curved in a waterfall shape to eliminate certain pressure points in your legs, allowing for improved blood flow. It can be adjusted for height from 18.5’’ to 22.5’’ off the floor.

Adjustability and assembly

Most people who got this chair really like the adjustable arms that can be moved with the touch of a button. The arms also pivot to the sides for easier access to your desk.

The lumbar support on this chair is pretty decent and follows your movements as you position yourself into the seat.

This model reclines to 3 different positions with a synchro-tilt option. This means the seat moves upwards as you recline in a 2:1 ratio.

The instructions that come with the package are very clear, and the whole process of assembly should take less than 30 minutes.

What We Like

  • Flexible mesh
  • Adjustable headrest
  • Synchro-tilt option

What We Don’t Like

  • No padding on the seat

Flash Furniture Hercules Series Chair

Flash Furniture Hercules Series Chair

  • Big & tall design
  • Adjustable headrest
  • Generous padding
  • Weight capacity of 500 lbs

If you’re looking for a leather office chair that catches everyone’s eye and feels comfortable enough for big and tall people, check out the Hercules model.

The entire chair comes with generous padding that widens up to 6’’ in the seating area. The backrest comes with a curved design, and the chair features an adjustable headrest.

Adjustability and assembly

The seat can be adjusted for height from 21.5” to 24’’ off the ground. This set up is a bit higher than standard chairs and has proven to be comfortable for people from 5’8’’ up to 6’3’’ tall.

This model offers no lumbar support, but some people solve this by adding a pillow. The arms are padded and feel comfortable when you lean into them, but can’t be adjusted in any way.

They also can’t be removed during assembly because they serve as a connection between the back and the seat.

The upholstery on the Hercules chair is made from bonded leather and can make you feel hot if you spend too much time in it.

What We Like

  • Comfy and spacious
  • Strong and durable
  • Padded arms

What We Don’t Like

  • No lumbar support
  • Arms can’t be moved

Flash Furniture Mid-Back Drafting Chair

Flash Furniture Mid-Back Drafting Chair

  • Built-in lumbar support
  • Mesh upholstery
  • Waterfall seat
  • Weight capacity of 300 lbs

Flash Furniture’s mid-back drafting chair is all about being practical. From its small frame to its ventilated mesh back, to its convenient foot-ring, there’s a lot to like here.

What we like the most, are the flip-up arms that can be moved out of the way if needed. The backrest features a curved design and built-in lumbar support to take some pressure off your back.

Most people feel that the lumbar support is decent, and only some feel it’s a bit more prominent than they’d prefer.

Adjustability

This chair was designed for drafting tables, standing desks, reception desks, and similar desk heights. It is also used by musicians, tattoo artists, and dentists.

Its minimum seat height is 24’’ off the ground, and the maximum is 32’’, which means it is significantly taller than regular chairs. This makes the included foot ring essential.

What customers are saying

People who use this chair say it is nicer than expected, considering its price range.

The biggest complaint we could detect had to do with the seat being slanted, but it turns out many people have assembled it backwards due to the misleading instructions.

During assembly, make sure you position the sloping side of the seat forward.

What We Like

  • Practical design with flip-up arms
  • Mesh keeps you ventilated
  • Foot ring for convenience

What We Don’t Like

  • Misleading assembly instructions

Flash Furniture Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

Flash Furniture Ergonomic Kneeling Chair

  • Steel frame
  • Natural wood finish
  • Height adjustable
  • 2’’ of padding
  • Weight capacity of 200 lbs

If you’re looking for an office chair alternative that will help your back while keeping you active, we’ve got you covered.

The Flash Furniture kneeling chair comes at a budget-friendly price and an alternate sitting position.

If you’re not familiar with kneeling chairs, they were made to transfer the weight from your buttocks to your thighs and knees, so your behind doesn’t do all the heavy lifting.

The seat is also slanted a bit forward so your back is curved in its natural shape while you work. The chair itself is placed on casters so it will be easy to move around.

Adjustability

The seat can be adjusted a bit for height, but this chair was built to suit a wide spectrum of people.

As long as you stay within the 200 lbs weight limit and are less than 6’7’’ tall you should be fine.

Most people that tried this kneeling chair like it, but some have issues fitting their legs under the kneeling portion due to their physique. Don’t expect to fully replace your office chair with this one.

Think of it as a means to alternate between the two, and give yourself more productive hours with less pain involved. To get used to the kneeling chair, limit its use to 15-minute increments.

After some time you’ll start to notice reduced stress on your neck and lower back.

What We Like

  • Reduces strain on lower back & neck
  • Easy to put together
  • Solid build

What We Don’t Like

  • Not fit for all body types

Flash Furniture X10 Racing Gaming Chair

Flash Furniture X10 Racing Gaming Chair

  • Racing series design
  • Flip-up arms
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

The racing series of gaming chairs was welcomed wholeheartedly by people who wanted to experience what it feels like to sit in a race car seat.

Flash Furniture offers a model that comes at a budget-friendly price, making it available for a lot more people.

We really liked the flip-up arms and believe every gaming chair should have those. They are padded which is nice, although some people prefer solid.

Comfort

The upholstery on this chair was made from LeatherSoft which is a leather and polyurethane blend. The seat is decent and should be comfortable enough for long hours.

However, it might have been better if the manufacturer added an extra layer of foam on the seat, but that can be fixed with an extra pillow.

Adjustability and assembly

You can adjust the seat height from 18’’ to 22’’ off the floor which is around the standard.

What’s really nice is the number of color options this chair is available in,  everyone can find something suitable for their space.

The chair is somewhat difficult to assemble, and a very important thing to note is that it doesn’t do well in supporting people over 200 lbs.

What We Like

  • Budget-friendly price
  • Lots of color options
  • Comfortable

What We Don’t Like

  • Difficult to assemble
  • True weight capacity 200 lbs

Flash Furniture High Back Reclining Ergonomic Chair

Sale
Flash Furniture High Back Reclining Ergonomic Chair

  • Reclines to 135º
  • LeatherSoft upholstery
  • Padded arms
  • Footrest included

If you like stretching out in your chair after a long workday, we suggest looking at this heavy duty reclining chair. You can operate this relaxation device with the help of 3 levers.

The first lever adjusts the height of the seat between 16’’ to 23’’ off the floor. The second one reclines the chair to 135º and the third one stretches out the footrest.

Some people found the footrest to be shorter than required, especially those over 5’2’’ tall, and some also found the mechanisms tend to be stiff.

Comfort

The backrest is extremely comfortable and the built-in headrest adds to the comfort.

The chair features LeatherSoft upholstery, which does keep hot, so have that in mind. Overall, the chair is incredibly comfortable with enough padding to support you without issues for a few hours.

What We Like

  • Allows you to recline
  • Comfortable for 3-4 hours
  • Generous padding

What We Don’t Like

  • Short footrest

Flash Furniture Aurora Mid-Back Task Office Chair

Flash Furniture Aurora Mid-Back Task Office Chair

  • Fabric upholstery
  • Swivels 360º
  • Adjustable seat height
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

If you’re a fan of fabric upholstery, check out the Aurora chair. Its small frame will be sufficient for average-sized adults who feel comfortable in an 18’’ wide seat.

The seat is height adjustable in a standard range of 17.5’’ to 21.5’’ off the floor. It is padded with 0.5’’ thick foam, which would not support more than a few hours of work.

The backrest is mid-sized and measures 16.5’’ from the seat to the top. The chair swivels 360º and will hold users up to 250 lbs.

The chrome base comes with dual-wheel casters that roll easily on flat surfaces.

What We Like

  • Trendy look

Flash Furniture Tufted Brown LeatherSoft Executive Chair

Flash Furniture Tufted Brown LeatherSoft Executive Chair

  • Button-tufted
  • LeatherSoft upholstery
  • Traditional look

If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your office, this executive chair from Flash Furniture might do the trick, and it will not cost a fortune!

This chair was made from ‘button-tufted’ LeatherSoft material, which is what gives it its traditional look. Tufting is a process that secures the padding so it doesn’t shift, making sure it lasts longer.

Button tufting is a traditional method of creating a stylish look and adding a professional finish to the product. The padded arms come with brass buttons that complement the look.

Aside from being an attractive chair that should leave a great impression, we wanted to know how it fares in terms of comfort and lower back support.

Comfort

The chair tilts and rocks with ease, which is great when you need a rest. The seat is 19’’ wide which should be comfortable enough for standard-sized adults.

It comes with a 4’’ cushion and can be adjusted for height from 21’’ to 23.2’’ off the ground.

Overall, this chair looks pretty sweet and feels comfortable for a short time, but it wouldn’t be our first choice for long hours.

What We Like

  • Stylish look
  • Durable upholstery
  • Tilt/rock motion

What We Don’t Like

  • Not comfortable for long hours of work

Out of all the chairs in our Flash Furniture review, we have to say that the Flash Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair is the best overall.

The mesh keeps your body cool, and the design provides the best balance of comfort, ergonomics, and durability.

Also, most of the other chairs don’t do much in terms of lumbar support, which will show after long hours of sitting.
