The Executive Office Chair 43670 is brought to us by Serta and is marketed as being a cheaper solution to many of the more high-end office chairs on today’s market. As is the case with any budget product, you’ll need to be okay with making a few sacrifices if you’d like to save some money on your next purchase. As such, shopping for a bargain product of any sort – office chair or otherwise – requires careful consideration on your end to ensure the chair you settle for does away with features you aren’t particularly interested in, giving you a great deal without having you feel as if anything is missing.
This being the case, whether or not the Executive Office Chair 43670 is the office chair for you depends entirely on whether or not it still has the exact features you’re looking for. If you’re the type to prefer a high level of comfort over a polished look that is sure to last, the Executive Office Chair 43670 is sure to give you exactly what you’re looking for at an extremely agreeable price. Let’s go in for a closer look.
Quality & Material
You’ll notice I gave the Executive Office Chair 43670 a rather middle-of-the-road rating on the grounds of the quality of its overall material. This is due to the fact that it features materials which could neither be seen as being of particularly high or low quality. For example, you’re not going to find any high-end leather here, is that the chair’s exterior consists entirely of fabric. However, the level of softness inherent within the fabric is very consistent, letting you know that the actual assembly of the materials in question was done with a degree of consistency and quality. Overall, the Executive Office Chair’s material quality is on par with what you’d expect to find across office chairs as a whole. Of course, this isn’t so bad when you consider its price is well below the par.
When it comes to an office chair’s level of durability, there are two factors to consider – how well it holds up against solid objects and how well it holds up against liquids. The Executive Office Chair does a great job of the former, being that it is made with a fabric which doesn’t really incur scratches of any sort. On the other hand, a bit of orange soda is sure to stain the chair. As such, it remains fairly average in this regard.
If there’s one area where the Executive Office Chair beats out all of the chairs within its price range and many chairs above its price range, it’s in the realm of softness and comfort. The soft material within its interior is very consistent and is sure to make you want to lean back and sink into the chair. Its outer material is also very soft an gentle, ensuring there is no irritation present in the event that some of your skin comes in contact with the chair. This is easily the chair’s main (and, quite possibly, only) selling point.
Design and Finish
You’re just not going to impress anyone with this chair. Made of beige fabric, this looks more like something you’d expect to find in a very casual setting rather than at a place of work. Of course, whether or not this casual look is a good thing truly comes down to your own tastes. If you’d prefer something more casual in nature, you may very well appreciate what this chair has to offer in terms of its physical appearance. Still, you won’t get that sleek, polished look you’d expect from leather.
It seems Serta has really dropped the ball with their warranties; not just with this particular chair, but with all of their chairs. As it stands, you’ll get a year of coverage after purchasing this chair. However, this is not set in stone and is liable to change depending on when you buy the chair. If you ask Serta, they’ll tell you the same thing, rather than giving you an exact figure. It can be a little nerve-racking not knowing exactly what you’re going to get before setting your sights on a product.
Assuming you’re not too interested in warranties and merely want a chair which has an excellent cost-to-comfort ratio, the Executive Office Chair is sure to give you exactly what you’re looking for. For a budget chair with premium comfort, look no further than the Executive Office Chair.
