swivel, and they have casters at the bottom. The main difference of this office chair is

than Operator Seating office chairs. Another feature they may have is the ability to
recline. Consequently, these chairs are also more expensive.

chair. Leather and Mesh chairs can have styles from the simplest Operator seating
office chairs to the more expensive Executive office chairs. Most people are familiar

from where your arms rest, to your neck, how your back rests, and the angle of your

chairs with the feature of reclining and usually accompanied by a footstool of the

chairs that can easily sit a guest from across a table or in a separate room, that have no
caster wheels.

office itself. Conference chairs can range from recliner-like chairs to Operator Seating
