As the new year approaches, upgrading your workspace at home is in order. Finding a suitable desk for your computer is one thing, but getting the right chair for you is another.

Gaming chairs are said to be more built for style rather than comfort, but not all. This means that some gaming chairs can also double as a work companion.

Some gaming chairs are expensive, but for those who have limited budget, they can check out these recommendations:

Fantech PH

Budding Filipino gaming store Fantech presents a unique take on gaming chairs. We typically imagine bucket-looking chairs when we think of gaming chairs. But for Fantech PH, it’s a blend between office chair and gaming.

Take the Fantech Alpha GC185, for example. It’s highly durable despite its simplicity and it can hold up to 220kg.

The chair also comes with a breathable net-cloth back rest, apt for a sultry country like ours. It may not be wheeled but it’s easy to carry around.

You can get the Alpha GC185 for only P3,700, which is available in black and red color variants.


OFIX, as the name implies, offers furnitures designed for your office space. Surprisingly, the brand also has a gaming chair series with models using PU leather and fabric-based materials. Those who want to look more professional can look for an OFIX chair.

OFIX offers various designs to choose from, which include the minimalist OFX Deluxe-53 High Back PU Gaming Chair (now discounted at P3,999) and the multifunctional OFX G11 Gaming Chair which has a retractable footrest that is currently on sale at P4,999.


Panther brings to the table PU leather-based gaming chairs that give them a glossy, easy-to-clean finish.

Besides being ergonomic, Panther gaming chairs have swivel and recline functions, and are height-adjustable. They also come with a rotary lift armrest that you can lift to free your elbows.

The brand’s most affordable gaming chair lineup, the Nightfall Series, is currently discounted at P4,290 apiece. It comes with six variants to choose from.
