Here’s what to look for in your new work bestie: A slightly bouncy, supportive ball chair. (That can double as exercise equipment after hours!)

Chic Look
Check Price
Comes in two sizes and seven colorways; has a weight limit of 400 pounds.

Yoga ball chairs are supportive, comfortable and ever-so-slightly bouncy. What’s not to like? We’ll tell you what: The colors. If you’re a decor snob it can be tough to find a traditional yoga ball that you won’t mind looking at from 9 to 5 every day. But thanks to the increasing popularity of these seating options, it’s getting easier to find attractive options.

Bounce and Spin

This model has a weight limit of 250 pounds and is 23 inches tall. It also comes with legs or a rounded base.

One thing to consider before you decide on a yoga ball chair is the weight limit—so check the specs. Some balls are made for lighter duty, and others are made more sturdily. There’s nothing as sad as walking into your office in the morning to find a saggy, half-deflated seat waiting for you.

Bonus Items
Check Price
Comes with a circular base, some workout gear and a pump.

Sure, you could just sit on a simple yoga ball, rather than a yoga ball chair. But we’ve tried it, and it’s a little too wiggly and unbalanced for our liking. If you want something a little more stable, make sure the ball you pick has a base, legs, or some other stability support at the bottom so you don’t roll around too much.
