Modway Edge Vinyl Office Chair Pros and Cons

A side view of Modway Edge Mesh Executive Office Chair

For the price under $150, there’s more going on with the Modway Edge Office Chair than you would expect. Let’s take a look at what it does right and what it could have done better:


  • Great ergonomic features
  • Sleek modern design
  • Budget-friendly price


  • Assembly could have been easier
  • Long-term durability is questionable
  • Sacrifices comfort for ergonomics

Right off the bat, we were impressed with this office chair’s ergonomic features and options. Lumbar support and a waterfall seat are excellent options for your office chair. The modern and contemporary design would also look great in any office setting.

Because of its price point, we chose this as the top office chair in our selection of chairs under $150 and $100. Click here for another roundup review where we recommended it for shorter users.

Some customers have complained about the assembly of the chair, leading us to believe that it could have been easier. Some customers have also reported that the chair starts to show wear and tear after a year or so of constant use.

In the pursuit of ergonomics in this mesh chair, some sacrifices in comfort are also made. The mesh back and the plastic lumbar support do not offer the same level of comfort as something like leather, but they still provide the breathable nature that people want from a mesh chair like this one.

Our Verdict: Modway Edge Mesh Office Chair

This Modway Edge Mesh Office Chair review showcases why we love this affordable ergonomic chair. If you need an office chair with a modern design and plenty of features you would typically find in high-end chairs, the Modway Edge is an excellent solution.

If you prefer more padding on your chairs, other ergonomic options for similar prices focus on leather and thicker padding.
