Modway is a popular brand that makes a variety of furniture, including armless office chairs. The one we have tested is their Ripple Ribbed Armless Mid Back chair. A compact and elegant-looking office chair that has a fair price.
It comes in a variety of interesting colors, something that is uncommon among armless office chairs.
The Modway armless chair has a lot of positive things but it has a couple of cons that we will speak about.
Let’s get into the review and see if this armless office chair from Modway is for you.
Construction and features
We always start a chair review talking about the quality of its construction. The Modway armless chair has a very sturdy feel to it, surprisingly. It exceeded our initial expectations, and we think that with this construction quality it will surely last years.
The 5-star frame of the chair is made from chromed aluminum, which is a great thing, considering that most of the chairs in this category have bases made from plastic. A huge plus.
The wheels roll rather smoothly even on carpets. On floors, it is a breeze.
The leather imitation on the seat is really nice looking, plus it is easy to clean, maintain, and hard to make dirty, maybe only the lighter colored versions.
The tilt feature doesn’t exist on this chair; as someone who likes to tilt from time to time this was not great, but it may not be an issue for other people.
The pneumatic lifting works amazing; very easy to adjust to your desired height and that also makes it easy to put the chair under your desk after you’ve finished working.
Overall, surprisingly good quality for the price. The chair is sturdy and the aluminum base is a huge bonus over the competition.
The design of this chair from Modway looks very similar to the YAHEETECH armless office chair, but we think it is even better looking, because of its better quality materials.
There are plenty of colorways to choose from as we mentioned: black, brown, green, grey, orange, red, tan, and white. The white one was our favorite, but we are sure that the other colors look great as well.
The kind-of contemporary, modern design will fit nicely in most home offices. Some people may not like the chromed base, but it is a good look for us. It has a genuinely expensive look to it.
This chair has a compact feel to it, but it will fit taller people without any problems. The dimensions of the chair are 18.5 x 23 x 34 inches, so it will easily fit under most desks.
Ergonomics and comfort
In this compartment, we give this chair an “okay” score, a 4 out of 5.
It is not an uncomfortable chair, but it could’ve performed better in this compartment.
The padding on the seat is thick enough for lighter people, but it may wear out quicker for heavier people.
It is a comfortable chair for some time, but it definitely can’t compare to the more ergonomically designed chairs with thicker padding. If you can sit on it straight, you may be more comfortable for a longer amount of time.
The back support is okay, but if you want a more comfortable chair you should consider something like the KOLLIEE armless office chair.
The assembly process is one of the easiest we have ever done. It takes no more than 5 mins of your time and requires no tools, which is great.
And because it is not a heavy chair, it makes the process that much easier. 5/5 stars for the assembly process.
The Modway armless office chair is a great one; it has good, modern looks, quality construction, and it is compact.
The only compartment in which it could’ve been better is the comfort. Not that it is bad, but it is not made for sitting on it for more than a couple of hours.
If that is not a big deal-breaker for you, this chair is a great option that you should seriously consider.
