Whether it be for gaming or back-to-back video calls, we are all spending a lot more time sitting down in our homes right now. As you may have already discovered, any prolonged period of sitting on a chair that’s just not up to the task is, well, a right pain in the ‘you know what’. This is why you need the ultimate gaming chair.
A gaming chair isn’t just about looking cool - although they do this as standard - but it’s an absolute necessity for your sitting sanity. They encourage good posture, with high padding to support the back and neck, and are made from materials that are designed for pure comfort.
If you are going to spend hours sitting, then finding the right gaming chair for your needs is essential.
With myriad chairs on offer, though, the task of making the right buying choice is a tricky one. Thankfully, Currys PC World is here to help. We’ve hand-picked four of our favourite gaming chairs, each one meticulously made to make sure your mind is on the game in hand and not what you are sitting on. And for added peace of mind, it’s worth knowing that all chairs sold by Currys PC World are tested for UK fire certification.
