Zody Executive Chair

Zody is a story of firsts. It’s one of the first chairs ever to fully support two postures: sitting, and the in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing at a sit-to-stand desk. And it’s the first chair to satisfy the most stringent environmental standard: Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certification. In a nutshell, this is the most researched chair on the market. Ever. This edition is built with a headrest for even more neck and shoulder support.


Zody is designed to accommodate a sitting position and a “perch” position when your standing desk is raised. This optional adjustment supports the in-between posture that’s half sitting, half standing. But you don’t need a sit-to-stand desk to love this chair — it’s pure comfort both ways. The headrest offers additional support in both positions.

Built with over 20 years of independent field studies and knowledge, it’s the most researched chair on the market. The exclusive asymmetrical lumbar support mimics the anatomy of your spine and lets you fine-tune comfort on either side. Additional pelvic support rotates the pelvis forward to help maintain your spine’s natural curves as you sit.

And it’s not only good for your body. It’s good for the planet, too. This is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Bronze® certified — the most rigorous environmental standard for products that can be fully reused after their first life. It’s also GREENGUARD Gold® certified and independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home.

Sit, Stand or Somewhere In Between

Zody is one of the first chairs (ever!) to offer a dual posture option. That means it ergonomically supports two positions: sitting down, and that in-between “perch” position that’s half sitting, half standing. (If you have a sit-to-stand desk, you know what we mean.)

Genuinely Sustainable

Zody is the first chair ever to be Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze under the newest qualifications. This is the most ambitious standard yet for making products that enable an equitable and sustainable future for people and the planet. Zody also satisfies the most stringent level of environmental standards from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association.

GREENGUARD Gold® Certified

Zody is independently tested to be free from over 10,000 chemicals to help contribute to cleaner air in your home. It’s considered the most stringent standard for ensuring products are low in VOC emissions, which can lead to healthier indoor environments. Short for volatile organic compounds, VOCs are chemicals emitted as gasses into the air. The most common exposure is in our homes.

Environmental Integrity

Our chairs are crafted with more than 90% recyclable materials. That means almost the entire thing can be broken down to be recycled — and they’re designed for easy disassembly, so recycling is hassle free. We don’t use PVC, heavy metals, or flame retardants to make our chairs.

Zody Mesh Office Chair

Love the chair!

Just as I had hoped-expected, the chair is wonderful. Very comfortable. Great lumbar support, which is what I needed most.

Does not hold up

It’s a great chair…but the vinyl or plastic on the arms and the headrest are splitting in both chairs that i own!!

I'm fighting with the cat over this chair

My cat is in love with this chair. She'll even meow at me to get out of it. Sometimes I give in. When I wake up in the morning, she's sleeping in it. That aside, this is the most well-built chair that I've ever owned. I've never had a high-end chair before, and now I understand why they cost a bit more. It is highly adjustable. It conforms to me perfectly. I thought the seat was a bit too firm at first, but it soon started to soften up a bit and conform more to my body. I'm also only 5 ft tall and it goes low enough for me to put my feet properly on the floor, which is why I wanted a higher-end chair in the first place. It's very difficult to find a cheaper chair that will go low enough for me. I'm also a bit heavier. They make big and tall chairs, but not big and short chairs. The seats on the cheaper chairs kept wearing out and I was buying a new chair every six months. I finally invested in a better quality chair and I'm glad that I did.

The most beautiful AND comfortable chair I've ever owned

This chair is like sitting on a little cushion (and wow the leather is so soft!), while actually looking like a piece of furniture you'd want to highlight in your living room! This chair makes me want to clean my desk finally! An amazing investment for someone who works from home full time.
