I’ve been seeing a lot of videos and ads for the Autonomos Ergo 2 Chair. Believe it’s currently priced at $319, but it’s worth taking a look at.

I've seen that and heard good things. I like the headrest as well

Whatever chair you buy, replace the wheels with office chair 'rollerblade' wheels. Just look it up on Amazon. Life changing.

Fashionable but I'm looking for something very adjustable, lumbar support, head rest etc

Go for gaming chair, they are made for long hour shifts.

Are you an average sized person? If you're smaller or larger than average then most chairs will probably still be uncomfortable. I am smaller than average and had to order a chair with a shallower seat and lower to the ground to stop getting sciatic pain.

Never knew chairs cost so much but you’re a consultant so I get it $$$

Good chairs do... I currently am on a $100 chair that I thought was expensive but is not suitable for sitting 9-10 hours a day 5 days a week It worked when I worked from home once every other week, but now need to upgrade

I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.

I’m working in-house…no timesheets, title I asked for, good salary (6 figures), remote, pretty much done at 5p. No, the work isn’t riveting, but that’s what side projects are for! Stick it out until I get restless, but nice to stop hustling so hard. (Accepting that I may never get a Lion.)
