Aeron vs Gesture vs Embody ? Which chair I should get ?

Embody is so far superior to the other chairs. The casters were smooth on carpet. Downside is it's more expensive. But unless you are on a tight budget, this chair will serve you better in the long run than the other two chairs. It can last longer than your relationship with your girlfriend.

That's a pretty bold claim. The Aeron released in the 90s and people still buy the ones made back then. It's the hallmark of longevity for HM. While the Embody isn't exactly new, it did first release in 2009. Jury is still out of it can beat the Aeron in durability.

Of course, personal comfort is up to the individual so I can't argue that. More likely than not, the Embody will last long enough that most people won't need to decide based on lifespan. So it really is a personal preference thing.

Go to the showrooms and sit in them. No better way to narrow it down, especially since what works for others may not work for you.

I just say that as my spouse and I went to herman miller and she got/loved the Aeron and I didn't care for it at all. I'd still aim to get to an HM office if you can to at least narrow down if you like/don't like those - then maybe if they don't sit perfect, Steelcase has a 14 day return policy just in case.

Embody

The embody unfortunately sucks if you’re tall.

I am 6 ft tall and Aeron is much cheaper as compared to embody due to employer discount
