The standard HERCULES series leather executive swivel chair comes with an extra wide seat and three color options: black, brown, and taupe. The 24/7 Intensive Use chair offers options for both fabric or black leather.

The black mesh chair uses a ventilated mesh for the back of the seat, which offers a better airflow for people who tend to get hot while sitting in leather chairs for long hours. The mesh chair also has a mid-back design, while the other HERCULES Series chairs have high backs.

While the mesh chair supports up to 400 pounds, the other options have a weight capacity of 500 pounds. Any of these chairs would work well as office furniture, but for some, the mesh back may be a better choice for ventilation.

Pros and Cons of Flash Furniture Big & Tall Chairs

  • Durable design
  • Lumbar support and Waterfall seat design

CONS
