We review four gaming chairs that could be perfect for your home office

20 May, 2020 · 2 min read

Right now there’s a fair chance you’re spending a lot of time in a home office. Sitting down, hunched over your laptop. So getting the right chair is a key decision when setting up your home office. There are a lot of office chair reviews out there to help you pick the right one, but wait - does it have to be an office chair?  Have you considered a gaming chair instead? Much cooler.

Secret Lab Omega Stealth 

These come in different designs for different size people. They also have loads of different designs; you can have a stealth style one that just looks like a normal, boring chair, or one specific to your geeky preferences (Overwatch! Game of Thrones! Batman!).They’re also reasonably priced when compared with “normal” office chairs.

So stealthy, no-one will see that you're not working, but in fact gaming.

DXRacer TANK

A more expensive option but very customisable, this is a case of Tank by name, Tank by nature. These chairs are big and sturdy. YouTube gamer Ninja himself (we’re going to pretend we’ve heard of him) has been known to use a DXRacer whilst going for that Victory Royale. Sweet.

The DXRacer is to gaming chairs, what the Tank is to... military vehicles, I guess.

Corsair T2 Road Warrior

Corsair has been a big name in PC gaming for a long time, but they recently branched out into chairs.   They appear to be going for a bit of a premium market; a little more subdued and stylish than others available.

Would the Corsair Road Warrior get your home-office back on track? Doesn't work. Sorry about that one.

GT Omega Pro Racing

A budget chair and not as colourful or extravagant as some of the others featured in the list. This is a solid, no nonsense offering. It’s also a little slimmer than the others, so it’s perfect for an office with limited space (that’s most home offices in London).

IKEA MARKUS

Ok. If a gaming chair really isn’t for you, then take a look at the Markus from Ikea. It’s affordable, comfy and looks like an office chair. What more could you want?  

It looks like an office chair, so why is it in this article? That's a question for our next editorial meeting.
