I’m looking at upgrading my home office chair and investing in one from Herman Miller. Is it really worth that $1000+ price tag or am I just buying into the hype?

If yes, which one is recommended?

Aeron is great, but make sure you get the right size. As a tall guy it’s the best I e found for being able to set the adjustments right and then build quality is fantastic. Still looks brand-new (aside from some dust) 15 years later

Aeron.... just bought one for my wife who started wfh... I have one that's 20 years old and looks damn near new.

Buy from an authorized retailer (herman miller has a record of suing individuals buying grey market stuff)... they are having a 15% off sale right now

How do people focus in the office? I'm a first year and I've been mostly wfh since I started and I'm super productive at home - my setup is comfortable, I rarely get interrupted, and I feel like I can stay really focused in my home office.

Our SAs started today, so the firm is making us come in more often. My office set up is so awkward, screens are too small, and I'm constantly getting interrupted. Not to mention the extra time it took to get ready and commute. How do people do this?
