Big & Tall Chairs Buying Guide

The Big & Tall Chair Collection offers a variety of office seating, reception area and waiting room seating, and stack chair options with generous sizing and strong support for Big & Tall seating needs. The chairs are upholstered in a variety of leather, faux leather, vinyl, and fabric options, with color selections to coordinate with current décor.

Sturdy Design

Seat & Backrest Design: Big & Tall Office Chairs have thick seat and backrest cushioning comprised of molded foam or memory foam cushions, contoured for natural fit. The seat is curved at the front for a waterfall edge, reducing pressure on legs to ease circulation and enhance overall comfort, and the seat and backrest are designed with generous sizing for average or larger users.

Heavy-Duty Frame: The heavy-duty frames include steel, aluminum, or metal base and sturdy armrests on most Big & Tall Office Chair styles, with reinforced internal structure for lasting strength. Many of the chairs have plywood panels in the seat and backrest for added strength, and the metal armrests are cushioned and upholstered to match the plush chair.

Adjustable Features: Adjustable features include height adjustment, supporting proper posture with feet comfortably in contact with the floor, tilt controls with adjustable tension and lock options, and a full 360-degree swivel seat for efficient mobility.

Weight Capacity: The Big & Tall Office Chairs support a range of weight capacities from 300-pounds to 500-pounds, varying between styles.

Eco-Leather:Is leather made up of 20% recycled leather. Recycled leather is developed when a blend of shredded scrap leather materials are glued together with resin and catalyzers. The end product has a polished appearance and has no need for additional finishing.

Guest Chairs

Four-Leg Frame: The Big & Tall Chair Collection includes a variety of Guest Chairs, with four-leg frame designs constructed from solid hardwood or heavy-gauge steel. The steel frames are finished with eco-friendly powder-coat paint on the majority of Big & Tall Guest Chair styles, and many have built-in armrests for added support and comfort. The reinforced four-leg frames have leg braces on some or all sides, and many of the guest chairs accommodate ganging brackets for fixed rows, grouping, and other arrangements.

Sled-Base Frame: On a sled-base framed guest chair, the left and right sides are each supported by one continuous piece of steel, for a sturdier frame with a higher weight capacity. 

Weight Capacity: The guest chairs can support weight capacities comparable to the Big & Tall Office Chairs, with range up to 750-pounds, in our extra-wide and bariatric-style chairs.
