Fern Office Chair
Meet our best-selling chair for total back support, researched and certified by experts. Fern responds to every movement to give you complete comfort, from your neck all the way down. Choose the options that work for you for customized comfort.
Inspired by the natural flexibility of a fern leaf, this chair evenly distributes weight as you move to help relieve pressure. At its core is our patented Wave Suspension system, which mimics the human spine and cradles your body in comfort.
To create Fern, our designers partnered with the Human Performance Institute at Western Michigan University, where we conducted comfort studies with experts in biomechanics, physical therapy, and kinesiology.
Not only is this chair good for you, it’s good for the planet too. With GREENGUARD Gold® certification, Fern is independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home.

Wave Suspension System
Fern is famous for its exclusive, patented 3-part back system that cradles your entire back in comfort.
Each one is calibrated to support a different area of your back, from the base of your neck all the way down to your pelvic area.
Cradle of Comfort
The cradle overlays the stem and fronds, creating a soft and pliable frame that we like to call “edgeless comfort.”
The stem is Fern’s spine that brings together the entire back of the chair. It supports each frond and encourages natural flexibility with your every move.
We play favorites. And Fern is one.

I love the Fern so much, after buying my wife the Fern Executive Chair, I bought the Fern Office chair for me. I love the double knit. Fern chairs are simply the best, bar none!
This is the best chair!! The high back gives amazing support! I love the arm rests! I can adjust to exactly what I need. The waterfall edge on the seat helps with the circulation to my legs and feet.
This chair is both supportive and soft. As a previous Aeron owner, I find this chair to be much more comfortable; already experiencing back pain relief. 100% worth the investment.
Great shipping time, assembled well. Purchased black with aluminum base, digital knit.
I purchased this chair during the Christmas when it was on sale. Got the vegan leather and it took about a month to get it. My wife loves it. I also love it, so much so, I purchased a Fern Office chair for myself. Competition is none, the Fern is the best Executive/Office chair hands down!
After 12 years setting in an uncomfortable Ikea chair, it was more than time for a change. After carefull research of top office chair brands, I went with the Fern. It is by far the best chair I've sat in and is perfect for either gaming or office work. My only regret is not buying sooner. 10 out of 10.
