Looking at getting a new office chair, but don’t have any retailers locally. Do I go Herman Miller Aeron or Steelcase Gesture or Steelcase Leap?

Gesture. Don’t like the feeling of mesh (Aeron) and like the the taller back

smart

I was thinking the same. I have a Steelcase Think at my office and like it. At home I use a $250ish mesh chair and the bolstering on the back is too much for me. I think that would be an issue with the Aeron as well.

I have Autonomous and I love it

I had the opportunity to try out a bunch of Herman Miller chairs before buying and settled on Aeron. I don't think about it during the day so it isn't causing me any discomfort. My old office had some Steelcase Leap chairs that were nice, I'd probably buy that if I need a new chair.

I have a steelcase think chair and love it Bought it refurbished from seatingmind.com

It looked brand new to me, in-laws did the same thing and theirs looked great too

The Steelcase Series one isn’t terrible if you don’t want to splurge too much as well.

I have an Xchair and am very happy with it. https://www.xchair.com/

Check out Knoll Generation. A bit pricey but I love the flexible back, plus the cushion is very supportive

I was looking at the Herman Miller Aeron and Embody yesterday and I find the Embody to be a little more comfortable. Would recommend calling some of the certified/authorized dealers in your area that partner with HM and see if you can negotiate a price 20-30% cheaper than MSRP

Gesture. I got myself one, when my chair from Staples wasn't comfortable enough for 14 hour days. I considered an Aeron, but I'm right on the line between an A and B size chair, and it's not like I can test them out (especially for a long day). I so went with one that was more universal/adjustable. I also prefer a solid/cushion seat to the mesh, especially if I'm wearing shorts or a skirt.

I’m right on the line between B and C so I’ve been thinking similarly to you. Wirecutter rated the Gesture better than the Aeron.
