Has really helped with my lower back issues. There’s definitely an adjustment period, but now that I’m used to it, I really enjoy it!
I have been in more car accidents that I would have liked to be, so I always fidgeted due to constant back pain. Since transitioning to my new role, and working from home I noticed how often I would slouch or found myself constantly adjusting how I sat.
Did lots of research before purchasing, and could not get over all the benefits of what using a "Kneeling Chair" could do for your mental/physical health.
Not only do I feel more productive and focused, but I find myself with less back pain, and even better posture.
Hats off and forever grateful of how Phil Zen Design handled my order from beginning to end. If you are hesitant to purchase, don't be. Do it. You will not regret it!

I love the chair - especially the color. I think it looks great and pairs nicely with a sit/stand desk.
After months of sitting in an uncomfortable chair while working from home, I knew I needed something better. Enter the Varier Balans! This chair keeps me in constant motion, makes me sit with better posture, and looks like a piece of art while doing it. I love the monochrome look and I’m telling everyone I know that they need a kneeling chair too! Fast shipping and great communication from Phil Zen. If you’re on the fence, go for it- you won’t be sorry. There are similar, cheaper chairs out there but none with the same quality and craftsmanship.
This is the first kneeling chair I have ever used consistently, so it's taking a little bit of getting used to. That said, I am really enjoying it so far! I already feel relief in my lower back and trust that it will continue to improve as I get even more comfortable with the Varier.
Ergonomics aside, I'm obsessed with the design. The monochromatic look is awesome. I also like that the chair has a presence in the room while still somehow helping my room feel nice and airy.
Overall would definitely recommend!
I was informed that the monochrome model I ordered would take at least 4 months to receive. Changed the order to the black on black standard Balans model. I like it so far. Assembly was simple, and the chair is comfortable. Still wish I had received the monochrome model/color initially ordered, but this will work... fabric just requires more cleaning than leather. I am having issues finding the registration page at Varier to ensure warranty coverage. Created an account and logged in, but cannot find the product registration page.
I booked another monochrome color originally, but due the global shipping issue, my estimated delivery day went from February till August. Phil Zen offered to give full refund or switch to another color that they already have in stock. While not my original #1 choice, the yellow does look good, so I went with it. So far so good, ,/‘e well packaged, and the installation is really easy. The communications via emails with the team was also smooth despite the whole wait.
Phil Zen was great to work with! This was the only store where I could find this kneeling chair and it came much quicker than I anticipated. 10/10 would recommend this store. I'm still getting used to using my kneeling chair. It does cause some soreness if I use it for more than a couple of hours, hopefully that improves.
Delivery was faster than I thought and arrived in great condition. I love how sturdy and well designed the chair is. Tips on getting used to it is great too. My only issue is for the price, this is upholstered in cheaply fabric that attracts lint and cat hair like a magnet. Any tips to prevent this?
The entire process was seamless, and Philippe's customer service was wonderful! The kneeling chair arrived quickly and the assembly was very quick and straightforward. The colour is fantastic and the quality is everything we hoped for. Highly recommend Phil Zen for excellent pieces, especially if ordering in Canada!
I love my chair! My back hurt from my old chair. I needed a chair that had a streamlined look for the tight space in which I was putting it. This chair is perfect for that. While I can choose to slouch on it if I want to, when used properly it reminds me to sit upright. Plus, the chair rocks back and forth to when I am feeling fidgety. The only drawback is my cat can't sit on my lap! Maybe I can attach a sidecar :)
The kneeling chair is a great upgrade from a regular office chair. I feel more up right, and it take up way less space at my desk.
Shipping was so fast and I love the monochrome look!
I've had this chair for 11 days now, and I LOVE IT. I was hesitant at first thinking maybe I will miss having a "regular" chair. However I find myself thinking everyday "ugh I can't wait to get home and sit on my chair". I don't work form home but I do sit on my desk playing computer games for long hrs, I love that I can move positions easily. Also this chair is great for shoulder strain, I've always had shoulder pain from siting in regular chairs, idk I just couldn't get my arms in a comfortable position but with this chair my back and neck are straight and my shoulders follow, so I don't have shoulder pain from sitting in my desk. I love how my pelvis and hips feel, tmi but I feel like this chair makes it easier to go to the bathroom lol.
Love the chair - so comfortable - everyone in the house wants one now. Amazing customer service as well. Thank you!
PhilZen is the best office/functional furniture shop that I've found. Best customer service, prices, selection. I'm enjoying my chair and I won't hesitate to make my next big purchase here (which I am planning to do) or recommend it to anyone I can.
I am so happy I ordered this chair as my primary work chair. I appreciate the flexibility it gives me to shift my position throughout time at my desk. I'm sitting on it now and love how comfortable the cushions are, and how much support it gives to my posture. I also like how it is so low profile when not in use. It's a wonderful addition to my work and teaching space!
The color and style are absolutely beautiful!
I just got my kneeling chair after a week. The color and style are absolutely beautiful! I had paid for expedited shipping originally but the owner contacted me directly and said they had it in their warehouse, and that their was no need to pay for shipping and reimbursed me immediately! I love my new chair!
Probably the best online shop I've encountered on the internet.
Great selection of cool items, and legitimately amazing customer service.
I love my chair! Forever customer.
The buying experience was fast and easy, and I was shocked at how quickly the piece arrived. The piece itself exceeded my expectations - gorgeous color and super high quality. Will order from Phil Zen again!
Great! Love the chair and service. Highly recommend.
