My current IKEA chair has seen about 7 years of use… the gas is going in cylinder so I need to keep lifting the lever to lift it back up… it’s time for an upgrade!
What chairs are people using? I have a few requirements:
- Preferably fabric, I find it breathes better and is more survivable in the summer. (Mesh back is even better)
- Arms - I don’t use them at home, and don’t really use them at work - so either no arms, or detatchable.
- Not massive - some are really bulky - I like a slimmer look.
- Ideally height, lumbar and back adjustments for a comfy fit.
Price… I think £250 would be suitable, would push a bit higher for the right chair - I hope to code for many years to come and protecting my back is a good insurance policy!
Obviously 2nd hand Herman Miller or Steelcase chairs are an option. Amazon turns up a lot of chairs - but all the reviews are very inconsistent.
Keen to know what everyone else sitting on while reading this!
