Herman Miller Aeron Chair

like

Anyone ever bought it from Madison Seating? I feel crazy spending $1.5k on a new chair if I can get used for 1/3rd

Used it and it was best decision I ever made. Got a practically new Herman Miller Aeron for $250 (half off on Madison searing, half of that from Deloitte’s wellness subsidy).

Steelcase Gesture. Just got mine yesterday, so obviously I can’t speak to the long term experience. Not very economical, but so far very happy with it in the home office. I’ve been spending about 14 hours a day at my desk lately and even by the end of it last night I wasn’t hating this thing like my previous office chair. “Comfortable” isn’t the first word that comes to mind, but it certainly does what I need it to - be an office chair my body isn’t begging me to get out of by lunch

I have a basic office chair from Staples. Are these high end chairs an investment worth making?

How do you like your staples one so far? Mind sharing a link? I’m looking for one under $100

I bought a $100 “gaming racer style” chair off of amazon. It isn’t pretty, but it’s super comfortable.

Ergonomic (back friendly) and economic ... would be an inflatable rubber ball, like the ones popular with pregnant ladies

I’m finding a lot of positive reviews online for the ergochair2 which is 350$ Anyone have this one?

I got. Check my review here https://joinfishbowl.com/comment_l8nfak

OP, depends on your budget. My budget was $600 for both. Check out my review and recommendation for Autonomous chair/desk. Shipping takes some time. https://joinfishbowl.com/comment_l8nfak

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
