Increasingly, it looks like work-from-home is becoming the default for lots of folks. When it comes to setting up a home office, the chair is undoubtedly the toughest detail. When you're looking for comfort, sometimes that comes at a premium price. One place you're guaranteed to find a deal on a great office chair is at IKEA (although not all of the most affordable office chairs there are pretty). Still, we took a look at reviews, prices, and features to figure out which of IKEA's office chairs under $100 were the best.
It might not be the most Insta-friendly of IKEA's offerings, but the Millberget swivel chair is by far the most popular with 337 reviews and a 4.4 (out of 5) star-rating. It features an adjustable height, sliding casters, and "adjustable tilt tension that allows you to adjust the resistance to suit your movements and weight."
It's about as basic as desk chairs come, but at $50 and a 4.4-star rating, you can't go wrong with this unoffensive padded chair. Bonus: It does come in slightly more fun hues, like a deep cranberry or mint green.
At 4.4 stars, reviewers like the breathable back design of this arm-less office chair.
With a 4.3-star rating, this model offers a bit more in the way of design, with a tufted front and bow-tie closures on the back.
If budget is top of mind for you, then you seriously can't get any cheaper than this $15 desk chair. It doesn't offer much in the way of back support, and doesn't roll, but you get what you pay for.
Although this desk chair has no rolling casters, it boasts an impressive 4.5-star review. The seat itself does swivel and the height is adjustable. Plus it's got that cute schoolhouse vibe which works great in an office or kids' room.
If you're looking for something with a bit of a contemporary edge, this affordable plastic roller chair should fit the bill.
