Criterion Work Chair
by Steelcase

At A Glance:
One of Steelcase's strongest task chairs, Criterion supports up to 300 lbs in Standard configuration, and up to 500 lbs in Plus configuration. Adjustable features include variable back stop, tilt tension, adjustable arms, seat angle, seat height, back height and seat depth. Durable, solid construction provides support for the most demanding work environments.

What's To Like:
Sturdy, solid, and highly adjustable, the Criterion chair is strong as a horse and ready for action - it comes fully assembled. With all the standard adjustments, you won't be lacking for comfort. Criterion lets you sit how you want.

What's Not to Like:
The starting price on this chair is over $800, which is pretty steep. You can get a lot of great office chairs with some of the same features for a lot less dough. But that doesn't mean you should. This is a strong chair, and the price tag shows that Steelcase is proud of it.

The Bottom Line:
Criterion's soft curves and pleasing contours provide all-day comfort and support. If you're in the "plus size" category, this is the chair for you. The price tag isn't pretty, but the chair's seat and back ergonomics are hard to beat.
