Steps to Assembling an Office Chair From Staples

Model 19564

My mother-in-law purchased this Staples brand faux leather chair and asked me to put it together for her. The side of the box says it’s a Berwell Chair, model 19564.

No tools (on your behalf) are needed. The parts are all bolts with a hex head, and the allen wrench needed , is supplied in the box.

Plan on this taking between 15-20 minutes to assemble.

The manual said “easy instructions”, and I must say, they did not lie.

Step 1 – Attach Casters and Gas Lift to Base

There are five casters that fit into the base of the chair. It takes a bit of pressure to pop them into place. Be careful not to pinch your hand if the wheels move.

The gas lift just sets right into the top side of the base, simple as pie.

Step 2 – Attach Seat Plate and Arm Rests to Seat

You take the seat plate and line up the holes on the underside of the seat, and screw in four (4) bolts. Both the seat bottom and the seat plate are marked with FRONT, so just make sure they match.

Attach the right armrest — which is the more difficult side, for the tilt mechanism is slightly in the way — with three (3) bolts.

Next, attach the left armrest, also with three (3) bolts.

Step 3 – Attach Seat Back to Seat Bottom

The backrest is attached with four (4) bolts, two directly into the seat and the other two through the seat plate and then into the seat.

Here is the finished assembly. The chair seat and armrests can be set up/down, and the chair can be set to rock, or be stationary. My first impression is positive.

Check out the computer desk I put together to go along with this fine chair.

    Thanks for posting this. I was flummoxed at the very beginning with the casters not going in and this was very helpful. The rest of it was easy but took me a bit longer than it did you.

    OMG, I echo what Marianne Kirk said. I was thinking I didn’t have the correct casters because they would not go in. I googled and found this page, thank you so much for explaining much better than the instructions did!!
