All of the above options can be had for a price that won't come close to the best high-end office chairs, but if we're making some recommendations, have a look at the FlexiSpot OC3B or the IKEA Markus. They both cost far less than many of the top premium office chairs, yet they still offer excellent back support and a quality build.

The OC3B might be the better choice if you prefer something more modern looking, complete with full mesh support, lumbar adjustments, adjustable armrests, and a headrest. On the other hand, the IKEA Markus is proven to be a long-lasting, affordable chair with lumbar support, a mesh back, a headrest, and lots of padding where it counts the most. The arms are removable for a bit of versatility, and you can adjust for height and tilt to get a comfy position.
