Looking for an office chair and am pretty settled on getting the remastered Aeron. Anyone know how to get a new one at a discount? Note: Buying used voids the 12-year warranty.

What did they change with the aeron?

Interior designers get a hefty discount. Question is whether they’ll pass any on to you

There’s a discount store for HM

Why on earth would you pay 820 dollars for that

If you’re working from home a lot, and need equipment for your home office.. go to HR and complain about ergonomics.. and they may fund some office upgrades for you.. might be good to get a doctors note..or occupational therapist to assist your case..

@D1 - you pay $$ for a bed that you sleep in for at least 8 hours a night, right? If you travel, for a minimum of 3 nights a week. Let’s say that mattress costs you 1k. Now, let’s say you work from Home a decent amount, game, etc. you sit in that office chair for upwards of 12+ hours a day. You really want to skimp on that? Open your mind 😬🤯😳 @AM1 - I was honestly thinking that. Asking HR if there’s a discount they get when outfitting offices that I can leverage or if they’ll fund it for me. Have you heard of this in the past?

PWC1 - I can’t find anything online.. have a link?

I paid $530 on Amazon — vendor was Chairorama and it was for a very specific configuration. Prices seemed to be variable though even on Amazon depending on the configuration.

I'd also consider the embody. It is comparable in price once you consider the cost of the add-ons to the Aeron.

I sat in the Embody yesterday at the store - honestly (to each their own) I don’t think it even compares @SA1 - was it the remastered model you got? And was it a brand new chair or refurbished? The only reason I want brand new is so I can benefit from the 12 year warranty. If you buy from unauthorized reseller, used, etc. the warranty is void

Seemed new
