Zody Upholstered Office Chair

Experience total comfort from head to toe. One of the first chairs of its kind, Zody Upholstered (LX) fully supports two positions: sitting down, and that in-between “perch” that’s half sitting, half standing (a common posture with a sit-to-stand desk). Built on over 20 years of independent field studies and knowledge, it’s the most researched chair on the market.


Zody matches science and well-being with thoughtful design for ultimate comfort. With a fully upholstered back and seat, it’s available in a range of colors and fabrics to suit your space.

This chair is designed to accommodate a sitting position and a dual-posture position. This optional adjustment supports the in-between “perch” posture that’s half sitting, half standing when your sit-to-stand desk is raised. But you don’t need a sit-to-stand desk to love this chair — it’s pure comfort both ways.

And it’s not only good for your body. It’s good for the planet, too. This is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certified — the most rigorous environmental standard for products that can be fully reused after their first life. It’s also GREENGUARD Gold® certified and independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home.

Try it at home for 30 days. If you decide to return it, the shipping’s on us.

Sit, Stand or Somewhere In Between

Zody is one of the first chairs (ever!) to offer a dual posture option. That means it ergonomically supports two positions: sitting down, and that in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing. (If you have a sit-to-stand desk, you know what we mean.)

Genuinely Sustainable

Zody is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze under the newest qualifications. This is the most ambitious standard yet for making products that enable an equitable and sustainable future for people and the planet. Zody also satisfies the most stringent level of environmental standards from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association.

GREENGUARD Gold® Certified

Zody is independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home. It’s considered the most stringent standard for ensuring products are low in VOC emissions, which can lead to healthier indoor environments. Short for volatile organic compounds, VOCs are chemicals emitted as gasses into the air. The most common exposure is in our homes.

Environmental Integrity

Our chairs are crafted with more than 90% recyclable materials. That means almost the entire thing can be broken down to be recycled — and they’re designed for easy disassembly, so recycling is hassle free. We don’t use PVC, heavy metals, or flame retardants to make our chairs.

Sustainable Comfort

Choose Zody upholstered in our Hobson fabric, and you’ll help make a difference. Made from 80% ocean-bound plastic and recycled polyester, this exclusive material is durable, modern, and soft to the touch. Each yard diverts 33 plastic bottles from entering our oceans.

Feels AND looks incredible.

Prior to getting the Zody chair, I was sitting in the world's worst office chair. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was a dining room table chair.

Over the years, I have developed upper back and neck issues partially due to poor alignment and posture along with being a new mom. Double whammy.

Thankfully, I am now sitting in a chair that is the polar opposite of what I used to sit in. Zody for the win!

I love many things about this chair, but I think what I obsess over most, is the lower lumbar support that I so lacked in my previous chair. The Zody literally lifts me from my lower spine and encourages me to sit up tall with my core engaged. It is a total game-changer.

The armrests aid in the sophistication of this chair as well. Another detail my former chair lacked - armrests. What a difference they make! They specifically keep my upper body more engaged when on Zoom calls and while podcasting.

The swivel and wheels are a lovely addition. I can easily turn and reach for things which also supports my overall physical well-being. It's the little things.

Aesthetically, I worship this chair. It's a looker and works beautifully with my Haworth Upside Sit-to-Stand Desk. It finally looks like I have a grown-up office and not a college dorm one anymore. I'm 41 btw, lol.

I highly recommend the Zody chair. It's an all-around supportive and stunning piece of office furniture.

Supportive and stylish

I can't rave about this chair enough. It's comfortable and stylish, and my favorite part of working from home!

pretty + function

I have always sacrificed comfort for a more simple / less "office-y" look for our photo studio space, but my team uses a shared desk where some of us are at for hours a day.
When this chair came into our lives (and studio) it really made a difference and fulfilled the non-office look with a stylish chair that works with our aesthetic AND was way more comfortable than I thought a chair could be!

I'm a believer!

As someone who spent over two decades never spending more than $50 on an office chair, my skepticism about high-end chairs was quite firm. The notion that a chair could significantly impact one's life seemed exaggerated. However, with the onset of stiffer joints and escalating sciatic nerve pain, my perspective began to shift. The realization that a substantial part of my day was spent sitting, especially since transitioning to a work-from-home setup, led me to reconsider my stance on investing in a quality chair.

Enter the Zody, a decision that I initially approached with a mix of hope and caution. Having used this chair for a couple of weeks now, I can confidently say that my skepticism has been replaced by genuine appreciation. The difference it has made in my daily routine is palpable.

The most immediate change was the comfort it offered. The pain that had become a constant companion started to subside, a relief that I attribute directly to the chair's ergonomic design. However, it's not just about the comfort. The chair's build quality is exceptional, exuding a sense of durability and sturdiness that my previous chairs lacked.

One of the standout features is the adjustability. The Zody chair allows for fine-tuning to fit one's body type, a feature that has proven invaluable for me. The range of adjustments ensures that the chair conforms to your body, rather than forcing your body to adapt to the chair.

Another aspect worth mentioning is the smoothness of its movement. Gone are the days of awkwardly maneuvering to roll in a straight line. This chair glides effortlessly, akin to skating on ice, enhancing the overall experience of using it.

The Zody has converted me into a believer. It's a testament to the idea that investing in essential items - be it quality food, a good bed, or now, a quality chair - is not an extravagance but a necessity for well-being. The cost, when broken down in the context of daily use and benefits, is not just reasonable but seems like a wise investment. This chair is not just a piece of office furniture; it's a tool for enhancing daily life and well-being.

I gasped outloud when I sat in it!

Having worked from home since 2017, I've been on a constant rotation of office chairs....this is my 6th and last chair. I only wish I'd decided to make the investment sooner. It's so beyond comfortable. The support for my lower back is crazy good. And, it's so easy to adjust to get it in exactly the position that suits the task at hand. It's both supportive and comfortable. Not only that, I was worried I'd have to sacrifice style for something that was functional, but I'm so pleased with how beautifully designed this chair is. It fits right in with my decor and actually even levels up the sophistication of my home office. Can't say enough good things!
