Simple, right? These kind of office chairs are meant for guests, so they aren’t designed too intricately as they aren’t intended to be used for much longer than a brief moment. Think waiting rooms or next to a desk or reception. They come with no flexibility, no wheels, and no adjustable features and are basically chairs. Although, you can find them in vibrant colors and funky designs to enhance the appearance of such a basic item.

Mesh Chairs

The chair seats are cushioned for comfort, and so you get the ventilation and cushion all in one which makes this style of office chair very popular.
