Why People Sit

People sit for many reasons: to rest, to work, to eat, to draw, to talk, to listen, to wait.

Comfort isn't the only thing to consider when choosing seating options. Equally important is the purpose: who hasn't been stuck in an uncomfortable chair during a long meeting? Discomfort is tiring, and distracts from being able to focus on an important discussion.

With so many choices for office seating, it can be overwhelming. Fortunately, we have resources to help you decide what works best for you.
