Drafting Chairs, Drafting Stools, and Office Stools

Find drafting chairs, drafting stools, and bar stool seating built to fit the elevated tables and desks in your office. We stock a wide selection of stools that are beautifully crafted and built to last. 

Office Stool Seating Types

  • Drafting chairs: Drafting chairs are designed to work at elevated surfaces, like a counter-height meeting table, drafting table, or adjustable-height standing desk. Drafting chairs typically come equipped with ergonomic benefits.

  • Drafting stools: Drafting stools are similar to drafting chairs in that they provide seating for elevated tables and desks. Drafting stools typically do not have a back (or have a very low chair back), so they don’t offer the same lumbar support. Many drafting stools still offer some ergonomic features, like an adjustable foot ring. 

  • Bar stools: Bar stools are a pretty paired-down seating option and are best suited for high-top collaborative tables, cafeterias, or other short-use environments. 

  • Adjustable-height stools: Adjustable-height stools provide the ability to customize your stool height to the table, making them an ideal companion for adjustable-height desks or flexible office environments. 

Commercial-Grade Conference Drafting Chair and Stool Materials

Find office seating in a variety of commercial-grade finishes. 

  • Leather stools: Leather office seating features upholstery made from natural animal hides. It’s durable, provides a classic look, and comes in a variety of options, including top grain and full grain. 

  • Mesh stools: Mesh office chairs boast incredible breathability, enhancing user comfort throughout the workday. Mesh is a durable material that comes in a variety of colors and applications. 

  • Faux leather stools: Faux leather provides the same look as genuine leather at a more affordable price point. 

The Basics of Ergonomics

Ergonomic refers to any office item designed to support maximum comfort and efficiency. Ergonomic chairs are designed to help your body maintain ideal posture while working. In addition to improving comfort throughout the workday, an ergonomic desk chair can promote health by helping to prevent injuries caused by incorrect posture. 

 

When looking for an ergonomic chair or stool, check for features like:

  • Lumbar support

  • Adjustable armrests

  • Adjustable seat height

  • Adjustable seat tilt

Drafting Chair Features to Consider

If you’re shopping for a drafting stool, you’ll likely also want to consider the following:

 
  • Does the chair have casters?

  • Do you need a swivel chair?

  • What is the seat depth?

  • Does it work in your office space? (Does the chair fit with your desk? Are there any other space limitations?)

Other Types of Office Seating

  • Computer chairs: Computer chair is an umbrella term that refers to chairs designed for use at standard desks. The term “computer chairs” often includes other chair types, like ergonomic chairs, executive chairs, and task chairs. 

  • Executive chairs: An executive chair is a premium office chair with a mid or high back. Executive chairs provide supreme comfort, pairing elevated design with ergonomic features. 

  • Reception and guest chairs: Reception/guest seating is designed for waiting rooms and reception areas. This type of seating is designed to accommodate high turnover and a shorter sitting duration.

  • Big and tall chairs: Big and tall chairs come with a higher weight capacity so that your office seating can accommodate more bodies. 

  • Gaming chairs: Gaming chairs are designed for long hours in front of the computer and often have additional features, like headrests. 

  • Stacking chairs: Stacking chairs are great to have on hand for temporary seating needs because they’re so easy to store when not in use.
