Chairworks Karma Leather Office Chair Reviewed!
Chairworks has been around for a while now, and they have a solid reputation for making good quality leather office chairs. What makes them stand out above the leather office chair crowd (and believe me, it is a large crowd that can be sometimes tricky to find good things in) is the simple fact that all their chairs are rated to support up to 350 lbs. This fact in itself is telling for two reasons: #1) They stand behind their chairs. Any company that is willing to guarantee that their chairs will support 350 lbs in general is a company that believes in what they sell and will provide great warranty service to boot. #2) It means that their chairs are good quality. Not just the mechanism or the wheels or a few parts, but all the parts. Which is critical for any chair rated to sustain 350 lbs., since pressure of the user is going to be distributed on all the parts, thus these parts have to be able to hold up to 350 lbs of weight. Would any chair that is rated for 350 lbs be a perfect Big and Tall Chair? No. But then again, getting comfort and value for a user that needs a higher weight rating than 250 is pretty difficult these days. This is what makes the Karma such a nice chair.
The Chairworks Karma High Back Chair is nice because, at a value oriented price point, it will provide a larger user with comfort and durability. The back is high for shoulder support and the leather covers a soft yet durable foam seat. The armrests are a solid polypropylene, which is a firm and durable plastic. Unfortunately, the chair is not ergonomic, meaning the mechanism is a standard mid pivot instead of a knee tilt. Overall though, the Karma Executive Leather Office Chair is a durable chair that can be a nice value priced leather office chair for a larger user.
