10 Meditation Chairs You Should Buy For Back Support, Comfort & Chic Design
These meditations chairs are super comfortable and will complete your gorgeous, quiet space.
As much as practicing meditation, self-care, and feeling good are important. It’s equally important to enjoy your space and feel like it’s unique to you. Your home is your haven and should reflect your needs and tastes.
One of the most satisfying experiences for me was going through my home and revamping my décor to match my new spiritual tastes. I made sure the blinds were always open. I purchased lush green plants and put them in every room. I added moving water in the form of a small fountain to my home office.
Meditation Chair Roundup
If you’re short on time (or attention span, no judgement!), here are a few of our favorite meditation chairs. The Bonvivo Easy II Meditation Chair $45, the Bedrock Home Adjustable Meditation Chair $75, and the Spoko Wooden Meditation Chair $120. The prices mentioned are accurate as of this publication so you’ll want to check out current prices.
I can’t put into words the how much the feeling of my home changed. It really became a place of nourishment, where I could recharge and then go back into the world in my preferred mood. That said, creating an enjoyable meditation experience has become a major influence on how I feel in my home as well.
Still, this discussion isn’t just about home decor. Meditation is an incredibly important practice for your overall well-being. So, as we discuss meditation tools and specifically meditation chairs I wanted to adopt a multifaceted viewpoint that wasn’t just fluff. We’re looking at all of the key aspects of what makes a meditation chair comfortable enough to zone out in but also attractive enough to make it into your home. We’re taking it all into consideration, the functionality, back support, and the general aesthetic.
Meditation is one of the best ways to keep the mind and body at peak condition. However, despite its many benefits being increasingly recognized by the mainstream, very few people remain dedicated to the practice after beginning. Various factors go into why people get out of the practice of meditation.
Many people feel like they can’t find the dedicated time but more commonly I hear that people get too frustrated with themselves in the beginning and give up. Specifically, people get frustrated with their inability to quiet their minds. Ironically, one of the most common reasons why someone is incapable of quieting their mind is not their to-do list, but it’s dealing with discomfort and lack of relaxation.
Comfort And Meditation
It can be tough in the beginning of practicing meditation to find the right posture that both feels good but is comfortable enough to help you disconnect from the body. Many people simply cannot get accustomed to the standard meditation postures due to their inability to spend extensive periods of time in an upright posture. Other reasons include physical problems such as back pain and general discomfort in the lower body. It is immensely more difficult to drift into a deep meditation if you’re constantly shifting around.
Because meditation requires the whole body to be relaxed for the mind to quiet itself, meditation chairs are an excellent alternative to help you relax into comfortable meditation postures. The right meditation chair can help you bring your meditation experience full-fold, which improves your mindfulness, which improves your overall well-being. It really is that impactful. This is why we took a deep dive into easily accessible meditation chairs that are a mix of floor seated and elevated, back supported and not.
Variety of Meditation Chairs
Available in various sizes and styles, and most importantly under budget for most people, these meditation chairs provide the comfort and support needed to allow the user to meditate properly without any discomfort. People with back problems also benefit greatly from meditation chairs as most of them are made with specific back issues in mind.
Keeping design, budget and functionality in consideration we found the most stylish meditation chairs to help you fully create a quiet area that reflects your personality and design preferences. Here are our picks of the 10 best meditation chairs for sale on Amazon. Some of them offer really nice back support and most of them are portable meaning you can move them from room to room with ease.
Meditation Floor Chairs With Back Support
These first few picks are meditation chairs that sit on the floor but have more than sufficient back support.

bonVIVO Easy II Padded Meditation Chair
Speaking of meditation chairs that look expensive but aren’t, we’ve got the bonVivo Easy II, and I absolutely adore the design of this chair. It’s sleek; it’s modern. The microsuede fabric is incredibly durable and easy to clean but gives it that appealing, high-quality aesthetic. Most importantly, for back comfort, the seat back can be locked into five different positions.
I would say that for the price and design if you don’t need a chair that has a ton of bells and whistles (lumbar support etc.) then the bonVIVO Easy II Padded Meditation Chair is easily an excellent choice for you.
Here are the product specs that could add some fuel to why the bonVIVO Easy II Padded Meditation Chair might be for you:

Back Jack Floor Chair
Portable, relaxing and under budget, there is little surprise that the Back Jack Floor Chair certainly has an understated design this version definitely feels on the lighter side and smaller than previous Back Jack chairs.
If you have a smaller more compact frame or really want to stay within a certain price point, then this chair will likely be a good fit for you. Otherwise, I would recommend other chairs on our list that are equally aesthetically pleasing but have a better out-of-box experience, better internal fixtures, and materials.
Once it’s assembled the chair doesn’t adjust or collapse, but it weighs next to nothing so I’d say this can also serve as a portable meditation chair. I think it would make a good gaming chair as well. All of these chairs would!
Regarding the fabric material, this chair features a heavy cotton-duck outer cover which can be easily detached from the lightweight steel frame and washed but. Here is some more information about the chair that you may find interesting.
The primary features of the Back Jack Floor Chair:
Dense foam seats for maximum comfort when sitting or meditating.
Can be used as an all-purpose chair
Product Dimensions: 14 X 21 inches
Weight: 3.9 pounds

Friends Of Meditation Extra Large Meditation and Yoga Chair
$250 at the time of publication
There is honestly so much to say about this chair. The seat cushion and back cushions are stellar being made of about 4 inches of foam. The back support has an ergonomic shape to it that really supports your lower lumbar, specifically for maximum comfort for when you’re sitting in positions like the Lotus meditation posture. The frame is incredibly steady, you will feel sufficiently supported even if you have a larger build. Nothing about this chair feels even remotely flimsy.
Although the materials are robust, the chair is surprisingly light and can easily be carried to different environments with the carrying strap. This one is a clear favorite, and it has the reviews to reflect. It is easily one of the more popular meditation chairs available on Amazon.
With a slim, futuristic design that doesn’t compromise on the high-quality upholstery, this model is excellent if proper meditation posture is important to you without compromising on comfort and ease. I could go on and on, or you can take a look at its product specs below.

Adjustable 5-Position Floor Chair By Harper & Bright Designs
$64 at the time of publication
I love pops of color, so although the coffee colored version of this chair is to die for I was feeling spunky and chose the red. This chair is simplistic. One might say it’s comparatively basic when sized up against the other meditation chair models in this list. But, the design of it certainly feels nostalgic and chic. It’s covered in microfiber which is notoriously easy to keep clean and can pass for suede in the right light. I’m always a fan of buying products that look expensive but aren’t.
This chair is incredibly comfortable, but if you suffer from back issues, I would steer clear due to its lack of lumbar support. Still, the chair is incredibly well cushioned, is several inches of padding between your butt and the floor. The back appears to be soft and slouchy as though you’d need a wall to lean it up against. But the back can be adjusted 5-ways if you pull it forward and then click the back into place.
I like an eclectic décor, so I give this meditation chair an “A” for looks, and an “A” for overall comfort and back support. Now for the product specs!
5 adjustable positions that allow the user to adjust back, neck and spine support according to their requirements for maximum comfort.
Easy to pack and store.
The funky and casual look of this chair can easily make it an excellent home décor addition to your bedroom, living room or even your balcony if you live in a high-rise.
The chair is made from lightweight steel and microfiber materials, making it easy to carry around
Product Dimensions: 47 X 26 X 6.9 inches
Weight: 11.9 pounds
