Hbada Office Task Desk Chair

Hbada Office Task Desk Chair

  • Flip-up arms
  • 360° swivel
  • Height adjustable
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

If you need a decent office chair that looks good and won’t break the bank, we suggest looking into the Hbada Office Task Chair.

The overall dimensions of this task chair are on the small side, which means it would be comfortable for teenagers, women, and men of smaller frames. The recommended weight capacity is 250 lbs.


One of the things we really liked about this model is the armless chair option.

the flip-up arms that can be moved out of the way if you ever need to get into an active working stance.

This is especially helpful for people that type a lot, play a musical instrument, or simply wish to get closer to their work desk.

The arms are solid which is better for longevity as padded arms tend to get brittle after a while.


The Hbada task chair features a stylish design with a black and white combination of colors.

The design was inspired by the look of a penguin and that’s why the arms can move independently. It symbolizes a waving penguin.

The backrest is slightly curved but it is far from the s-shape needed to truly follow the spine. It is comfortable to lean into though and the mesh upholstery keeps your back cool.

Concerning the cushion of the seat, it seems that different customers get different thicknesses.

Some of them arrive thick and supportive, while others might be really thin. We’re not sure what causes this inconsistency in shipments but Hbada really needs to look into this.


The seat height is adjustable from 17.7’’ to 21.2’’ off the floor, this is only 3’’ of wiggle room, so make sure you take some measurements before buying.

Overall this chair would work perfectly as a daily chair but it won’t do much in terms of proper ergonomics.

What We Like

  • Penguin inspired design and colors
  • Offers some adjustability
  • Budget-friendly price

What We Don’t Like

  • Unreliable cushion thickness
  • Not a true s-shaped backrest

Hbada Ergonomic Office Desk Chair

Hbada Ergonomic Office Desk Chair

  • Reclines to 125°
  • Highly adjustable
  • Mesh upholstery
  • Weight capacity of 250 lbs

The Hbada ergonomic office chair comes with several adjustable features to improve your ergonomic experience. For starters, you can adjust the lumbar region for both depth and height.

You will get 1.1’’ of wiggle room when adjusting the depth, and the height range is 1.9’’. This is not a large range but it will accommodate most body types.

The headrest is also adjustable and can be pulled up to 1.9’’ or angled to 30°. The chair even has adjustable arms that can be moved in the range of 3.9’’ which should be fine for any body type.

This range of adjustability is usually seen exclusively on high-end models that cost a lot more, but the trick is that the adjustability on this chair is not as smooth as those other models.

This chair is a great option for people that are buying one for themselves and won’t need to share it with others. This way you set up the adjustments once.

If you have to readjust your chair every day it might get annoying after a while.


With regards to the comfort this chair provides, we really liked the curved backrest that follows your spine and reclines to 125°.

The material on the chair is mesh which promotes airflow and keeps you cool while you work, and the cushion on the seat is thick and comfy.

The seat can also be adjusted for height from 16’’ to 19’’ off the floor. This model was made primarily for the European market and is small in size for US customers, so keep that in mind.

Some customers had problems with the tilting mechanism, but after contacting the seller, they received new chairs. Kudos to the customer service of Hbada.

Assembly should be easy on this one as you’ll get IKEA-style instructions with 9 steps to take.

What We Like

  • Budget-friendly price
  • Lots of adjustable options
  • Stylish design

What We Don’t Like

  • Some chairs have a faulty tilt mechanism

Hbada Ergonomic Executive Office Chair

Hbada Ergonomic Executive Office Chair

  • PU leather upholstery
  • Flip-up arms
  • Reclines to 125°
  • Weight capacity of 330 lbs

If you have a bigger frame, consider the Hbada Executive Office Chair. This model was made with ergonomics in mind and offers a few adjustable features.

The thing that impressed us most with this executive chair is the width of the seat (21.26’’) that will be comfy for larger people. Add a 330 lbs weight capacity to the mix and you have an especially sturdy chair.

The Hbada executive chair also comes with flip-up arms which are rarely seen on executive models. It can be adjusted for height between 19.2” to 23.2’’ which is higher than average.

The tilting range might be a bit shorter than other executive models but you’ll be able to recline or rock the chair to 125°.


The seat on the Hbada executive is heavily cushioned with cotton and sponge, which feels extremely soft when you sit down.

The upholstery is made from PU which is not as breathable as mesh and might keep you warm while you work. Some users solve this problem by placing a cooling pad over the seat in summer.

Overall the chair looks and feels expensive when you sit in it, it arrives carefully packaged and offers a thick and soft cushion as well as terrific back support.

What We Like

  • Looks and feels expensive
  • Reasonably priced
  • Some adjustable features

What We Don’t Like

  • PU leather keeps hot in summer

Hbada Reclining Office Chair

Hbada Reclining Office Chair

  • Breathable mesh back and headrest
  • Highly adjustable
  • 4’’ of cushion
  • Padded arms
  • Weight capacity of 300 lbs

If you’re a fan of mesh material and all the breathability it provides you might like the Hbada Reclining Office Chair.  This model seems to be made for optimal comfort.

This reclining chair has a 155° range and Hbada has also included an extending footrest to add to the experience. The recline feature can also be locked in place.

The backrest is curved to follow the shape of your spine and the adjustable lumbar support is pretty decent. Even the arms were made for comfort and come padded with foam.

They are not adjustable but measure 19.75’’ wide which is the perfect width for most people.

This model will accommodate people that are 4’9’’ to 5’9’’ tall. The only downside to this chair is the headrest that has to be readjusted often.

Assembly is easy on this model as well, and your new chair will be ready to go within 10 minutes. You will get clear instructions, extra parts, and an Allen wrench included in your package.

What We Like

  • Comfortable to sit on
  • Some adjustable features
  • Stylish look

What We Don’t Like

  • Headrest gets loose

Hbada Racing Style Gaming Chair

Hbada Racing Style Gaming Chair

  • Extendable footrest
  • Reclines to 155°
  • Adjustable features
  • Weight capacity of 330 lbs

The Hbada Racing Style Gaming Chair might be the real deal. We were overwhelmed by the amount of positive experience that poured in from various customers.

What people really liked about this gaming chair is the footrest option that allows them to play games and rest at the same time.

The recline feature is also very comfortable, and since you’ll be at a 155° angle it is extremely easy to fall asleep.

Another awesome thing about this chair is the quality of the PU leather. The leather seems to be smoother and softer than the standard and people truly enjoy this.

Together with the chair you also get a neck and lumbar pillow that will ease the pain in your lower back.

The lumbar pillow takes some time to get used to, but after a week of use, you’ll understand why it’s so important for your lower back.


The seat is extremely comfortable and offers a generous 20.8’’ of width and 21.6’’ of depth. It will successfully hold people up to 330 lbs.

With regards to chair dimension, this model was made for people that are 5’2’’ – 6’ tall. The arms on this chair can be moved up and down to fit different types of people.

Most people that bought this chair were happy with it overall, but if for any reason you don’t love it, you can return it for a full refund within a month.

Hbada also offers 1 year of free replacement for installation issues, damage, or missing parts.

Assembly will be easy here, the only problem some people faced was a missing instruction booklet, but even they agreed the assembly is pretty easy and straightforward.

What We Like

  • Comfortable design
  • Some adjustable features
  • Easy assembly

What We Don’t Like

  • Missing instructions in the package

Smugdesk Chairs

Smugdesk was founded in Shenzhen, China, in 2000 by a group of people who were previously employed in the home furnishing industry.

They realized there’s a lack of a connection between manufacturers and designers which shows in the end product.

So they decided to assemble a group of designers and engineers that would work together to create a truly compelling line of ergonomic chairs.

Their biggest challenge was the balance between comfort and health which they considered to be the main concerns on a modern chair.

In their quest for a perfect chair, they decided to place health first. So if you are looking for a dedicated company that focuses primarily on your health and true ergonomics, check them out.

They sell on platforms like Amazon, Walmart, and more.

Modway Chairs

Modway is a huge US-based company, they are located both on the East and West Coast totaling more than 1 million square feet of warehouse space.

They deal with every major furniture category and sell mattresses as well as area rugs in addition to office chairs. The items they sell ship from China.

Concerning customer service, Modway has a long way to go because the post-sale customer experience is not so great at the moment.


Some brands have brought the office chairs game to a new level and Sihoo is one of them.

Sihoo was founded in 2011 in Shenzhen, China as a means to ‘serve the whole country’ with ergonomic chairs. In only 2 years they achieved yearly sales of $1 million and held 500 employees.

Since then Sihoo has cooperated in studies on standards of study tables & chairs for children, held two design competitions, and set up the Sihoo Institute of Engineering.

Their line of products is based on plenty of research, and they seem to be getting famous in the US and the world at large, judging by the number of reviews posted on Amazon and similar platforms.

Flash Furniture

Flash Furniture is a US company that has operated online since 2004. They are a sister company of Peazz.com located in Diamond Bar Blvd. #257, California.

They pride themselves in being the cheapest retailer online and the most stocked as well. This is true judging by the number of office chairs they offer.

They deal with furnishings for kids, offices, restaurants, and living rooms. They also provide a return option, enabling you to return a product you don’t like within 30 days of receiving it.

Hbada is a China-based company that is better known in Europe, and their office chairs seem to feature European sizing as well.

The quality of their chairs is decent and the instructions they send are clear and understandable.

In terms of durability expect the chair to last around 1-2 years before showing signs of wear and tear. Since this is a budget category of office chairs it is to be expected.

We have to say that some of their ergonomic chairs are very close to high-end chairs especially when we look at their adjustable features.

The good thing about Hbada is that they refund the cost of a chair completely if you choose to return it, so you know you’ll be taken care of if your experience is not satisfactory.
