Standing Desk Chairs

Sit, stand, lean, perch—the more you move, the better you feel

Just as sitting all day isn’t good for you, neither is standing for too long. A chair that allows you to perch, lean, or sit when your desk is at its standing height is the best way to support your body throughout the day. Always easy to adjust, these sit-stand chairs work equally well at a traditional height desk.

Frequently asked questions

What is a standing desk chair?

  • Standing desk chairs work just as well for you at a standing height as they do at a traditional sitting height. They allow you to sit without lowering your adjustable-height desk from your preferred standing height.

Why should you get a chair for your standing desk?

  • Standing for at least part of your workday is great for your posture, your energy, and key to alleviating pain. But just like sitting all day isn’t good for you, neither is standing all day. Having a chair that can allow you to perch, lean, or sit while your desk is at its standing height means you have the flexibility you need to support your body throughout the day.

What is the best chair for a standing desk?

  • There are many options that work great with a standing-height desk, and choosing the right one for you depends on your work style. If you plan to stand for most of the day, a perch or stool is a great option. If you envision sitting more frequently, saddle-seat office chairs can ensure great ergonomics while you take a break from standing.

How long should you stand at a standing desk?

  • This is a personal choice, but experts do recommend you change position every 30-60 minutes, whether that’s from sitting to standing or to leaning, perching, and wiggling. You can find more advice on how to get started with your standing desk here.
