The castors are not meant for all floor surfaces, perhaps that leaves out bamboo flooring in Nipa Huts? Should work well in most though.

The Nico High Back Executive Chair incorporates a leather like covering, black Caresoft upholstery (pleather) which looks okay, not as much like leather as some would want, but looks good with the tufted design.

The Tuffed Padded Upholstery sits on a durable black steel frame.


Ergonomically speaking, the Nico High Back Executive Chair is on target depending on your height. At 5’10″ or taller you’ll enjoy the chair to its fullest.

There is lumbar support, head and neck support and while not great, decent arm rests.

The back tilts back about 15 degrees, has lockout, the seat tilts and of course the seat adjusts in height enough to accommodate 6’7″ occupants.

Pros and Cons


Fast Delivery, really fast delivery.

Fair amount of comfort while it could use a tad more padding in the seat and back which you’ll notice the heavier you are, but overall all nothing to gripe loudly about.

Attractive Design.

Fair Price.


Assembly alignments awkward and difficult by oneself.

The chairs lowest height is 20 1/4 inches, so ensure your desk accomodates this, remembering the arm rests sit much higher.

250 pound weight limit.

If your feet don’t lay flat on the floor, its not going to be ergonomically correct for you, though you might prefer the higher height but its not going to be strict ergonomics.

Some complain of the seat back angle as not being comfortable, but most are okay with it, something to consider.

Final Thoughts

The Nico High Back Executive Chair is a chair for your short list. Its not as great as some 300 dollar chairs, but its close enough for the money that you may want to reconsider spending that much for a chair unless you need to impress someone with your ability to spend more than your ability to find save.

For anyone wanting a high back executive chair who like the higher seat, put this on your short list of dependable chairs.
