If you’ve been looking for an office chair on Amazon, chances are you’ve run into the brand Ticova.
They’re a company based in China that make a range of mid-range ergonomic chairs.
But how do they rate in terms of quality and comfort?
In this review, I take a look at the company, their range of chairs, and also some similar chairs from their competitors.
About The Company
Ticova is a young company that specializes in home and office furniture. The company was founded in 2018, and Ticova trademark owner is located in CUI Kanghua, China.
They don’t seem to have offices in the US or any direct customer service support.
They only sell online through various vendors, so when you buy their products, you must communicate with the official vendor on any issues that arise.
Best Ergonomic Chair
- Highly adjustable features
- Reclines to 140º
- Contoured & cushioned seat
- Maximum weight capacity 280 lbs
The Ticova Ergonomic Chair was designed with lots of adjustability options and should not disappoint as long as you know what you’re in for.
We have to mention that office chairs in this price range usually don’t feature so many adjustable capabilities, so it was exciting to research this chair further.
Seat and recline
The seat on this ergonomic chair can be adjusted for height from 16.5’’ to 20.5’’ off the floor and features 3’’ contoured high-density foam.
To fully feel the benefits of the contoured foam, you’d have to be seated deep into the seat, so if you prefer sitting at the front edge, it might get uncomfortable.
The foam is a bit on the firm side but will still be comfortable for long hours. The only time you might feel a slight pressure on your tailbone is in the reclined position.
People that tend to get hyper in their chairs will appreciate the rocking motion and the fact that you can adjust the recline tension.
Once you get to the maximum recline angle, or back to a 90º angle, the chair will click.
With regards to adjustability, you might need to tinker with the settings for a few days before you find the most comfortable position for yourself.
You can control the height and angle of the ergonomic headrest with a 5.1’’ up or down movement and a 135º tilt.
The arms are ergonomically designed with a concave top surface, and it can be moved up or down in the range of 2.8’’.
This model also features lumbar support that can be moved up and down, it can even be pushed in or pulled out to fit the curve of your spine and provide strong lower back support while you work.
The only downside to this chair is the lengthy assembly process, which should take from 30 minutes to one hour.
Some casters might be tricky to click in place, so the company suggests using a rubber hammer. The instructions are clear, and the package arrives in great shape.
Overall, customer satisfaction is quite high when it comes to this model and most people that bought it agree that it’s a good value deal.
The manufacturer also offers a 30 day money back guarantee with your purchase.
What We Like

What We Don’t Like

Best Executive Chair
- Retractable footrest
- Tilt & rock function
- Generous seat padding
- Maximum weight capacity 300 lbs
Although this executive chair design is somewhat unusual, it has a lot to offer, including its 140º recline and retractable footrest that can put you to sleep.
The footrest is sturdy and comfortable with 14’’ of width.
The second thing that really caught my attention is the segmented backrest that offers added support in 3 key points: your lumbar area, middle back area, and head.
The backrest is 33’’ long and just like the seat, it features layers of high-density and resilience foam. The length of the backrest will be most comfortable for people from 5’ to 6’7’’ tall.
The upholstery was made from scratch-proof PU leather that is soft and durable.
The seat is 21.7’’ wide and 23.2’’ deep, it will be comfortable for regular and plus-sized adults up to 300 lbs. It can also be adjusted for height from 15.7’’ to 21.65’’ off the floor.
If you plan on sitting for 8+ hours on this chair, you might need a gel pillow.
Overall, we liked how the frame of the chair is made of steel and not plastic. This is a well-built and comfortable chair, and most customers are extremely happy with how well it works.
What We Like
- Strong steel construction
- Sturdy footrest
- Layers of foam padding
- Rocking motion
What We Don’t Like
- You might need an extra seat pillow

On this model, you will find adjustable features only present in higher end chairs, this includes the adjustable headrest and flip up armrests that can be adjusted for height.
This model will be suitable for desk work but also for gaming. The mesh is present both on the backrest and the seat so you’ll stay cool while sitting in it.

The height of the seat is taller than usual, and its minimum height of 20’’ is usually the max on other chairs. The highest the seat will go is 24’’, so make sure this is a good height for your desk.

Among all the chairs on the list, Nouhaus one is the most popular on Amazon with an incredibly high satisfaction rating among customers.
What we really like is the dynamic lumbar support that follows your movement as you change positions throughout the day.
The mesh on the backrest (called ElastoMesh) is of extremely high quality, and it stretches just enough to keep you comfortable. The backrest tilts to 135º with the help of a lever.
The armrests are adjustable in 4 dimensions (height, depth, width, and pivot), but they are also made of plastic, so they might not last.
The headrest can be adjusted both for height and angle. Make sure you position the headrest on your neck so it’s comfortable.
What people really appreciate about this chair is the additional set of rollerblade wheels included. These wheels roll smoothly on any kind of surface and look much cooler than standard wheels.

Duramont has made a pretty decent ergonomic chair that’s both adjustable and sturdy, with a maximum bearing capacity of 330 lbs.

Adjustability and comfort
The chair also features excellent lumbar support that can be adjusted for depth. The arms can only be moved up and down, but you can also set up their width during assembly.
Another thing that can be set up during assembly is the seat depth or its distance to the backrest. A feature only found in higher priced chairs.
With regards to comfort, you don’t have to worry about your behind hurting, you get plenty of cushion on this model, and most people spend 8+ hours in the chair without issues.
At the end of the workday, you can recline up to 120º, lean back, and relax. Included in the package you get rollerblade wheels that perform well on hardwood surfaces.
If you’re looking for a solid office chair that encourages proper posture while you work and performs amazingly, we strongly suggest looking into the Sihoo Ergonomic Chair.
You might be put off by its price since it is the least expensive chair on our list, but it comes with the most positive recommendations from customers.
Most of the adjustments that come with this chair are standard ones.
You can move the headrest up and down or curve it at an angle, and you can recline up to 125º or lock the backrest in 3 preset positions.
The arms go up and down, and the seat and lumbar support can both be adjusted for height and depth. What really stands out though is how well the adjustable features work and its smart design.
One thing we have to mention is that the padding on this chair is on the firm side. However, it is made to give you enough support even after long hours of work.
Assembly is the best part about this chair and you get all the tools in the package, along with some extra hardware, a pair of gloves, and a cutting tool to open the individual boxes with ease.
The first thing you’ll notice when sitting down in a Hbada chair is its prominent lumbar support. It might seem a bit too much at first, but once you get used to it your back will thank you.
The lumbar can adjust for height and depth to fit different types of backs. Another thing worth mentioning is the height of the chair that’s a bit shorter than usual.
The minimum height of the seat is 16’’, and the maximum 19’’ off the floor. The chair reclines to 125º, and you also get an adjustable headrest to lean into comfortably.
The arms are made from hard plastic and they move up or down.
What customers are saying
Overall, this is a decent chair, but most people that buy it change it a bit or tweak it by adding better legs and wheels or a superior gas cylinder.
Some people have also had issues with the reclining feature due to the spring mechanism that’s too soft and offers little resistance.
I have to say I was a bit skeptical about Ticova since they don’t have any offices or a website.
Then I learned about all the positive experiences people have had with this brand, and I have to say they do have decent quality chairs.
They also offer adjustability features similar to those found in higher end models, and their prices make them easily attainable.
We might not be able to say how durable they will be since the company is 2 years old, but so far all the people that bought a Ticova chair say it provides real value for money.
