A point often forgotten when purchasing chairs is restoration, as few surviving examples would not have been repaired at some stage. When purchasing chairs, it is not unusual to spend more money with a good restorer than you actually paid for the article itself. The repair of a chair, the most used object in the home, is expensive when compared to, say, a chest of drawers. If restored properly, a chest of drawers may need serious attention only once every 50 or so years, where a set of chairs may need attention on a frequent basis. Sets of chairs that are let go for generations often need a lot of attention, even to a point of needing to be steamed apart and re-glued which takes time and patience. A single chair often consumes more time than for a dining table. Even now in our local area, it is not easy to find a competent tradesman to repair sets of chairs, as they all look upon them as ‘charity‘ jobs.
Start by looking at high back or executive office chairs because typically these chairs‘ back heights are higher than managers chairs or task chairs. You will want a chair that will provide complete upper back support in order to avoid shoulder or neck pain. Have a friend use a tape measurer to measure your back from the top of your shoulders down to where you would be seated on the office chair. After you have that measurement, look for the back height on the chair of your choice and see if it goes a few inches above your back height. If the back of the chair is shorter than your back height, the chair may not provide the support you will need.
If your current chair you sit in now is at the proper height, measure the length of your leg from your knees to the floor. This will give you a good indication of how high your chairs‘ seat should go up to. If you simply can not find a chair with a seat range that does not fall within your height requirements, try opting to look at drafting chair options, as their cylinders are taller for extended height seating. Be wary of the height of your desk if you go for this option, because some drafting chairs will not fit under standard height desks. You may also want to look for chairs that come with different cylinder height options, again, some higher end manufacturers will carry this an upgraded option.
