An Office Chair

There's a reason that employers compile health and safety documents relating to workstations and in particular, your seating. A proper task chair that can be adjusted is hugely important for maintaining proper posture and can help avoid back and neck pain.

The perfect workstation will have a task/office chair that is comfortable to sit on, has a swivel base and is height adjustable. All of these factors will make for a much more enjoyable and productive space to work.

Luckily there are tons of brilliant options out there and here at Utility, we have a great selection of office chairs to choose from. The Aluminium Group of chairs from Vitra, Muuto Fiber chairs and Normann Copenhagen Form chairs are great examples.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
