Someone will recommend an Aeron. Then everyone else will recommend an obscure ergo/game chair or a stand up desk. Just get an Aeron. Comfortable and built like a tank.

Splurged on an Aeron last year, also…the adjustable arms and headrest and worthy add-ons. Recommend test driving chairs in person if you can, i think i sat on every office chair Herman Miller offers and spent about two hours in the store before purchasing.

I did tons of research recently and ended up buying from a secondhand shop in town that resells corporate office furniture. Way cheaper than new. And usually they have new ones for way less. I got a Haworth Fern chair for $400 instead of $1000+ and i sat in a few hermanmiller/aerons that were both more or less expensive but just weren’t as comfortable for me. A taller back has proved immensely better for me.

It’s not what you asked, but I’d highly recommend trying a standup desk - one that goes up and down so you can change between sitting and standing. Changing position often it helps me way more than any ergonomic chair ever did

Branch daily chair!

I actually just did a whole bunch of research on this and opted for the HAG Capisco - which is more of an ergonomic stool that compliments a standing desk. https://www.fully.com/hag-capisco-chair.html

In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?
