Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair
The Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair is a chair you might want to strongly consider. Its too tall for people under 5’10″ who want the nice ergonomics of keeping your feet flat on the floor, but a replacement cylinder can give back 2 inches.
Why would you want to spend money above the cost of the chair price on a cylinder for a new chair….because this chair is unusual. Its unusual in that its very comfortable. And this degree of comfort would make buying the smaller length cylinder a worth wild investment.
Of course if your 5’10″ or taller, you’re likely to be very enamored with this executive chair, we are.
- Real Stylish
The Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair is like eye candy. Its upholstery is LeatherPlus which is a rebonded leather vs. 100% leather. That means that its a mix of leather fibers and other materials. The benefit is very soft and comfortable but not as hardcore durable as leather. But for the price, its okay.
The comfort is real, good lumbar support and good cushion support. The arms have padding but could probably use a little bit more. But most are happy with what it has.
As far as looks, the chair looks like it costs much more, it looks more like it belongs in a higher executives office than middle management. Lets clarify that a bit, remember its leatherPlus, but it sure looks nice.
The chair does have structural plastic on the base but its not unattractive but again its a decent price and that’s how you keep the price down.
The Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair is ergonomic if your 5’10″ or more, because that’s the magic height for your feet to fit flat on the floor. That being said;
The Boss has tilt, tilt tension and tilt lock, 360 degree swivel, 5 star castor wheels.
The seat is the waterfall seat design, which if you’re the right height will keep pressure off your thighs and back of the knees.

Pros and Cons
So many good things to say about this chair, to start with it comes very well packed. The packing includes extra soft foam to protect all elements of chair during shipping. Very well packed.
Next, the chair is intuitively easy to assemble and fast requiring no tools! Six minutes tops.
Chair is very comfortable, and has great lumbar support. Many people with back problems are very impressed with the degree of comfort. NOTE: if your more than 5’10″.
LeatherPlus Upholstery…more comfortable than Leather.
Great looking chair.
Chair sits taller than most, so if your less than 5’10″ your feet won’t sit flat on the floor. There is an option however. One customer ordered a 80mm chair support cylinder from Boss and took 2″ off the height of the 100mm cyclinder. Just swap them out.
There are several complaints about the chair not tilting back, but my feeling is that the consumer reviewers didn’t know how the tilt back mechanism operates. The chair actually has sufficient tilt back.
LeatherPlus….While more comfortable than leather, not as durable.
The Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair is a chair we like. It’s very good looking, very comfortable. It’s rated at 250 pounds, but for good reason, above 250 pounds and the pneumatic cylinder for height adjust won’t work correctly.
So if you’re above 5’10″ and less than 250 pounds you’re likely to be pleased with this chair. Sure all companies have the occasional bad parts etc, but in the odd chance that happened, Boss has excellent customer service.
So we highly recommend the Boss Black LeatherPlus Executive Chair.
