Who are the best suppliers of office chairs near me?

best office chair - online or physical store?

Karo has been manufacturing and selling office chairs to retailers, designers, architects and more recently, the public, since 1986. Our factory and showroom has always been based in Johannesburg, and we distribute our products nationally. It is fair to say that we have pretty much ‘seen it all’ in the South African chair industry! Having been in the industry for the last 24 years, I often get asked… “who are the best suppliers of office desk chairs for home or work, near me?”   At Karo, we believe in being blatantly honest and it’s important to us that our customers are as well informed as possible. Here is a list of 4 companies that have office chairs for sale.

In all cases, these companies have a solid history in the industry and distribute their products nationally.
