I've been using some $99 Office Depot thing for about 11 years now, but it's well past due for a replacement. I hate the look of offices chairs in homes, so that rules out the usual suspects (Herman Miller, Steelcase, etc., most of which I've tested and don't like anyway). Don't even get me started on desk chairs that look like race car seats.
The Eames Executive chair is perfect, but fuck if I'm spending $5k on a chair. I've checked Craigslist for used ones, but haven't seen any in my area. I also like the Prouve Fauteuil Direction (with or without wheels) for home use, but here too the price is offensive and there doesn't seem to be an active used market, and I don't see how the wooden arms could be comfortable.
Is there anything similar at a more reasonable price point?
I'm looking for an ergonomic chair and found one thats reasonably priced and extremely comfortably. However, I'm around 108kg, and the chairs have a nylon or PU base. What I've read online seems to suggest these are far too weak, but the shopkeeper swears it can easily support me.
I'm looking for any chair I purchase to last at least 2 years. Is the guy right about the nylon & PU bases, or should I look for an aluminum base? (no ergonomic chairs with steel bases in my country).
Pretty much the title. The store sells used furniture and I'm in need of a chair. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on what I should look out for. I know the Herman Miller Aeron is good, but i'm pretty much a newbie.
When I was working in a warehouse they had a few full big chairs and looked fancy. None of them provided me with back support as I had to be typing and those chairs appeared to be that you need to be almost forcing your back to touch the support . I then took a old beat up chair from the storage and it was perfect . It was a staples telford. I see now that staples only has Telford 2 which I would buy but the issue is they are made from cheap or fake leather which always peels . I’m looking for a chair that is identical in shape or performance that is not made from material that will peel. I will try to put a link Telford chair I am 5”9 150 Pounds, thank you
Trying to find some way to lower the lowest height setting on my wife's office chair so she can be more comfortable. I feel like I need to find a gas cylinder that 'sinks' in deep into the base so the chair sits lower and then find a 'cylinder' that is shortest in height. Is there a way I can find some solution to this? Any thoughts or ideas?
Staying at a Holiday Inn in Princeton, NJ (University drive) for work. I've spent hours using the in-room desk and LOVE the provided chair. It's ergonomic, black mesh, adjustable lumbar support and arms - everything I want in my home office chair - but has nothing to indicate the make or model. Any suggestions on how to identify so I can find one?
Hi all, bought an Ikea Markus awhile ago, and while it's an OK chair (a little uncomfortable though), the biggest issue I have is constantly 'sliding off'. No matter how I adjust it (angle, height, tension) I slowly slide off, my pants bunch up, and I am sore after just an hour.
Even with the back of the chair at a severe angle, it seems like the seat is completely level or even angled down towards the ground (forwards) a bit, which is contributing to the 'sliding off' feeling.
Does anyone have experience with this? I haven't been able to find anything online... Thanks.
I need your advice on deciding on which chair is best for me. If you read further you will find out why this is a complicated matter for me.
My back broke down last year and I've been trying hard to adjust since. I have an office job which I can handle with enough rest, but I have to start studying and working from home but my back cannot keep up with this regime so for home at lest I need a proper chair.
I have found two essential things that dictate if a chair is right or not:
Furthest recline with the least amount of pressure in the lumbar area. Given my condition I have I found that a reclined position is the easiest to handle for long hours so if one of the chairs favors reclining more than the other please kind enough to point it out. The way I sit in a chair now is by avoiding all contact with the backrest in my lower back area by trying to make contact with the chair only with my upper back and thighs. The thing that scares me about the Aeron is the flexible nature of the pellicle that would make it impossible to avoid contact with. The thing that scares me about the Embody is the curve designed in the structure of the backrest that has positive curve exactly in the lumbar region. Also I wonder if the hard edges on Aeron's frame are such a deal breaker as some people make it out to be.
Breathability. I think this one goes to the Aeron but what I'm looking for is actually input on just how much advantage it had over the Embody.
