Do I Need an Office Chair for a Standing Desk?

Balancing stand-up tasks with sit-down breaks

Standing desks are some of the most ergonomic products that you can add to your workspace. This does, however beg the question - if you have a standing desk, do you need an office chair at all? Realistically, even those who use standing desks will need to lower them down to a seated position from time to time.

At EffyDesk, we specialize in a range of premium ergonomic furniture including desks, office chairs, and more. Our products are carefully engineered to support your health, while offering all of the stylistic appeal of designer furniture. Continue reading to learn a few reasons why you should pair your standing desk with a high-quality desk chair.

Supercharge your ergonomic space

A standing desk is a great start to a comfortable, health-forward workspace. However, what many people do not realize is that there are a variety of ergonomic chair options that pair incredibly well with these workstations. Options such as our AeryChair align with the natural curvature of your spine and cushion your lower body. We use breathable materials to make the user experience as comfortable as possible. By adding these pieces of furniture to your standing desk along with a range of ergonomic accessories, you will have all of the tools you need to maximize your health, wellness, and productivity.

Rest your feet

Although standing offers many health benefits, remaining upright for too long can actually damage your health. If you have ever walked for so long that your legs have started to swell, you know how frightening it can be when fluids begin to pool in the calves and feet. By purchasing an office chair, you will be able to strike a healthy balance between sitting and standing behind your desk throughout your work day.

Complete the look

Both standing desks and ergonomic office chairs combine practicality and style; however, having one of these pieces without the other can make your workspace appear awkward and incomplete. Our desk chairs and height adjustable desks come in a range of colours, styles and materials for you to choose from. Do not hesitate to speak to one of our customer service representatives for guidance on how to pair our stunning pieces of office furniture with your workspace.

Decompress your spine

One of the most noteworthy features of our ergonomic desk chairs is their ability to recline. You may have heard before that we are at our tallest when we first wake up in the morning. This is due to the fact that after laying in a horizontal position all night, our spine has time to decompress and elongate. It is only after standing or sitting upright for hours each day that our spinal disks fall closer together. With our reclining chair backs, the user is able to relax and elongate the spine as they please, leading to increased comfort and flexibility.
