Has anyone gone so far as to splurge on a tier 1 office chair like the Steelcase Gesture? If so, your honest feedback/review would be appreciated. My logic is if I spend so much of my typical work week sitting on a chair, why not go the extra mile and make it something comfortable and good for posture. Also, the cheaper chairs seem always to wear down faster than anticipated.

Had my Aeron for about 15 years now. Worth every penny even though it was a stretch to afford at the time. Your back isn’t worth cheaping-out on.

I bought an Aeron chair 10-15 years ago, long before we were WFH. My home office chair was better than the one in my old offices at the time. A good chair is important. Try to sit in one first before ordering or make sure there is a period of time you can try it out and return if needed.

I got a Steelcase Gesture last summer. My cheap office chair from staples wasn't cutting it for tax season. Totally worth it to me. I love it. No matter how long a day I work, I'm not in pain. I love that the arms are 4-way adjustable. I paid extra for the headrest and for leather, so it would last even longer. So it was NOT cheap, and I justified it as an investment. (I used to have an Aeron at an old job, but I wasn't a fan because it was a large, and I'm still able to shop in the petite section. I just wasn't sure if I needed a small or medium if I went with Aeron, and you couldn't try them out then.)
