Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive High-Back Swivel Tilt Steel Chair Review

Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive High-Back Swivel Tilt Steel Chair Review

The Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive is off to a good start with a black leather upholstery and a black steel frame.

An executive high back office chair at a operator chair price is always a good deal in our books.

There are not many reviews on the Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive office chair, but its got the features of a decent chair.   The frame and leather construction for example give a good indication this chair will go the distance.

Additionally, the Basyx series office chairs is made by the HON company, which is based in Iowa.   They have plenty of contact information including, a Parts support number, government support number, education support number and business support number so they seem to be a standup company.

Features of the Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive Office Chair

  • Style
  • Ergonomics
  • Specs

Style

The Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive Office Chair has a nice look to it.  Its has the traditional manager executive style to it, with a leather upholstery, stitched in a pleated pattern.  The Arms sweep down complimenting the chairs overall look.

The black steel frame is nice in appearance and structurally refreshing when compared with vinyl or plastic.

Ergonomics

You can stay and work longer if your comfortable.  Good ergonomics is expected in better quality office chairs.

That being the case, the Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive offers almost all the adjustments except for arm adjustments.

A four and a half inch seat height is available starting at the lowest setting of 41″.   The seat back tilts, has tilt tensioning and the oh so important tilt lock.

The castors are 5 star like most chairs and suitable for most floor types but not all, but optional castors are available.

Pros and Cons of the Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive Office Chair

Pros

  • Price, pretty decent at Amazon.com, but have seen almost as low elsewhere as well.
  • Leather Seat Upholstery with nice pleated stitching, for the price getting leather is a great feature.
  • Steel frame gives the chair some reassurance of strength without being unduly heavy.

Cons

  • Arms covered in urethane vs. matching leather
  • Could use a bit more cushion for those over 200 lbs.

 Final Thoughts on the Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive Office Chair

Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive High-Back Swivel Tilt Steel Chair Review

The Basyx VL640 Series Leather Executive Office Chair is a well priced Leather and Steel Framed Executive Office Chair.  While it has little to offer right now in the way of consumer reviews, its got the features of better chairs.

The company is a U.S. based company out of Iowa, and the HON company has a + rating with the Iowa BBB, so its no doubt a safe chair to go out on a limb for despite the lack of reviews.

We think its likely to be good office investment.
