Review Preview

We have unboxed the Freedom Saddle Seat saddle/perching chair and are evaluating and reviewing it now.

First impressions:

Much wider seat pan than other seats in this category.

Evaluating the high-seat-height version for apples-to-apples comparison with other perching/saddle stools.

Wider seat surface and shape puts some pressure on inside of thighs.


The Freedom Saddle Seat is a perching-style saddle chair that lets you open up your hip angle as you sit to promote better posture.

Height range (measured at top of front edge of seat surface) for the high-seat-height version (a $37 upgrade):

  • Low: 21″
  • High:  29″

Seat dimensions: 19 1/2″ wide across from each point of triangular seat surface.

The Freedom Saddle Seat is available in a wide variety of base and seat colors.


  • triangular cushion encourages users to sit in a "saddle" posture
  • ideal for short duration computer work, clinical applications or as a side-seating option
  • adjustable height to accommodate a wide range of users and tasks
