As for installation, this chair can be a little tricky the first time you do it, but once you get the hang of it, it’s quite easy. One note that might help you a bit with the installation is that the screws and bolts should slide in extremely easy when lined up correctly, so if you have to force the screws in position, they might not be aligned properly.

This smell is completely normal and it will be completely gone within a week or so of use!

#2 Choice: Flash Furniture Mid-Back Swivel Mesh Office Chair
If you are in the market for a contemporary styled office chair that has a good amount of lumbar support. This is a good chair because of the Mid-Back design. Mid-Back chairs are generally better for lumbar support and can be great for people that plan on sitting for long periods of time.

This seat is designed with a state of the art lumbar support and tilt lock mechanism that allows you to truly customize the seat back angle for something that best fits your preferred seating position.
As for the comfortability of this chair, I really like the mesh. It definitely has a different feeling compared to leather, but with mesh it feels very lightweight and breathable which can be a good change from traditional leather. Along with this, this chair features a Waterfall Seat Edge design which helps to improve circulation in your legs and removes some unneeded stress on your legs and back. That being said, the armrests are made of hard plastic that aren’t as comfortable as the padded armrests of the previous office chair we reviewed, but I have no complaints with them. Along with this, the arms are also easily removable in case you prefer to not have them attached!
As for installation, this chair is one the easiest on the market. This piece only features 6 different pieces, and uses only a handful of screws. Overall if you follow the installation instructions, it will only take you a few minutes to put together.
Overall this chair is a great blend of comfort, style, and budget. It provides a beautiful look and style while providing it all at an extremely affordable price. Along with this, the mesh Mid-Back design gives you a nice breathable feel, that provides adequate support to those who work sitting down. All in all, if you are looking for a great budget office chair that isn’t made of leather, this would be my top choice!
