Steelcase Leap® Fabric Office Chair

Its back moves as your back moves. Its arms move as your arms move. Its seat moves as your seat moves. It's first chair actually changes shape to mimic and support movement of your spine. As result of 11 studies with over 700 participants conducted across 4 universities amongst 27 scientists, Leap® chair is backed by four years of research and embodies ergonomic discoveries made by Steelcase Design Studio and IDEO. Because of an exceptional range of adjustments, Leap® is perfect for anyone and thanks to its advanced technology and extraordinary comfort, Leap® chair is proven technology and a healthier way to sit.


  • Refined iconic design
  • Thermal comfort design offers excellent ''breathability''
  • Patented ''live back'' technology supports entire spine
  • Natural glide System allows reclining without disrupting work
  • Upper back force control customizes level of ''push back'' when reclining
  • Variable back stop with five recline angle positions
  • Flexible seat edge relieves pressure on back of legs
  • Lower back firmness control
  • Adjustable seat depth
  • Pneumatic adjustable seat height
  • Winner of numerous awards including NeoCon's Most Innovative Design Award and Wall Street Journal's Best Overall Desk Chair
  • Ergonomic Functions: A.) Live Back®The Leap chair's back changes shape to support the entire spine. This can reduce the chance of lower back sag and a hunched posture, which may weaken disc walls, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine. B.) Thermal Comfort Thanks to slats in both its back and seat, and the special foam it uses, the Leap chair offers excellent ''breathability''. It effectively controls a balance of heat and moisture so you stay comfortable. C.) Adjustable Seat - People don't fit neatly into average body sizes. Leg and torso lengths can vary independent of a person's overall height. Adjustable seat accommodates different body shapes for long-term comfort. D.) Lower Back Firmness Lower back firmness control enables you to set a constant amount of firmness to help maintain your lower spine's natural curve. E.) Height, D, W, and Pivot Arms Arms telescope in and out, move forward and back, pivot and adjust up and down so you can find a natural position that comfortably supports the wrists, forearms, shoulders and neck. F.) Natural Glide System™ As you recline, the seat glides forward so you can recline without leaving your Vision and Reach Zone, so you stay oriented to your work. This encourages more varied postures so there's less static load on the spine. G.) Flexible Seat Edge When you recline or lean forward, the seat edge flexes to relieve pressure on the back of the legs. H.) Upper Back Force Upper back force control enables you to set the amount of ''push back'' that you desire as you recline, regardless of body size. So you'll receive just the right amount of recline support.

About the Manufacturer

Steelcase began in 1912 as The Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They received their first patent in 1914 for a steel wastebasket -- a major innovation at a time when straw wastebaskets were a major office fire hazard. That led to metal desks, and they've led the way with product and service innovations ever since. Today, their portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology.

Steelcase was founded by people with a strong commitment to integrity and doing the right thing for their customers, employees, business partners, associates and neighbors. Their principles became the foundation of their company, passed on from decade to decade. "Living our core values is essential to our identity, reputation and success today, just as it was in the past."


The Leap® Fabric Office Chair is a Modern style product. Modern style is very sleek with clean lines, and generally incorporates high gloss using whites, greys, and blacks. A focus on geometry and angular shapes is a hallmark of modern design. Glass and leather are also seen a lot with modern style. You can shop for more Modern Office Chairs in the Office Seating section of our site.

from Center Moriches, NY – Verified Buyer

I spend more time in my office chair than I do my bed! I've been procrastinating for years spending this type of money on an office chair. I've been sitting in it for less than 24 hours, and not only does my back not hurt, I feel like it's being "corrected", if that's possible. I am so happy right now, I believe I will be purchasing another one for my home office.

Amazing chair, well worth the money

from Cupertino, CA – Verified Buyer

The Leap is a serious ergonomic chair -- it's got all the bells and whistles you'd expect at this price point, and it looks really nice too. If you're scared of the price tag, I'd recommend taking a look at the Amia. Or heck, just take the leap of faith -- you can't put a price on the health of your back!

Work-from-home professional

from Saint Petersburg, FL – Verified Buyer

I bought this chair after reading lots of reviews when I decided to create a serious home office. It's attractive, as ergonomically designed chairs go, and has tons of features (most of which I haven't fully explored yet), but it feels smaller than I anticipated. My husband, who is 6'2'', looks like he might fall out of it when he leans back in it.

pretty sweet

from Yorktown, VA – Verified Buyer

been sitting in it since I got it. It's not comfortable like a recliner - it's more supportive than soft. However, it helps you maintain a great posture, which is part of the reason I really wanted to try this chair. So, for my uses, I think it is 5 star. If you're not looking for something to sit at all day, every day, then I'd suggest looking elsewhere, like maybe a DX racer chair.

Great chair!

from CRANBERRY TWP, PA – Verified Buyer

Best office chair purchase I have ever made. I previously had a Staples chair and had been experiencing lower back pain. That chair was less than 2 years old. So far, so good with the Steelcase Leap. I have been using it 8+ hours a day for about a month. The chair is adjustable in every way I need it to be and it seems to promote better posture. I am 5'9", 155lbs. I wish I would have pulled the trigger on this purchase much sooner instead of messing around with $100-$200 chairs.

I'm at a desk 10 houirs a day and require a comfortable and supportive chair. This chair fills those requirements and at the same time is a very attractive chair. This is a chair I recommend and will purchase again.

Worth the $$$$

from TX – Verified Buyer

I work from home and was using a office depot chair until I decided to invest more into something that I use everyday. The leap has great reviews across the internet and I also happened to check it out in a local store. The chair came with good packaging and was easy to open. There is no assembling required. The back support is great and firm and it provides all sorts of configurable options to control and set it as per the need.

Comfortable and pretty.

from Myrtle Beach, SC – Verified Buyer

This is where I "live" every day working on computer for attorneys. Comfortable and moves very smoothly on hardwood floors. Easy to assemble and sturdy - no tipping over.

Heck of an Office Chair

from Fort Worth, TX – Verified Buyer

I was a little skeptic to spend this much on an office chair, but this one is highly engineered with adjustments for every part of your body that sits in it. I've used it for several hours at a time now and I'm very pleased with the comfort and flexibility. My sore back seems to be much better now that I've started using this chair. This was a good investment.

Happy purchase!

from Woodbury, MN – Verified Buyer

This is my second Leap fabric chair. Chairs are very individual so what works for one, may not suit another. But all things considered, this is a high quality and well built chair. It has many adjustment options which allows it to be customized to suit a wide variety of people.
