Agreed. I went with a refurbished one on Amazon. Around 600, and it looked like new when it came to me.

Got below, it’s doing the job

Buy the Steelcase Gesture with or without headrest. Miles ahead of Herman Miller. People just pump Herman Miller on here probably because they dont know better / havent tried a range of chairs. And even at HM, the Aeron is NOT the one to buy - again, pumped on here because it was popular back in the day.

Agreed on the Steelcase Gesture. Just purchased at the beginning of Jan and it’s been an absolute dream to sit on > 12hrs a day.

Also, a good chair starts north of $1000 new, minimum. Dont be swayed by low prices. You get what you pay for. And dont fall for dubious "second hand" offers on high end chairs, do your DD.

If you want something in the ~$400 range the Autonomous Ergo 2 has been great. Obvi not as good as an HM, but I couldn’t justify $1k+ on a chair

Steelcase Leap. Had one at my desk at previous job. The conference rooms had HM Aerons and they were okay but not as comfortable as the Leap.

I use the Ergo2 chair, standing desk and mat from autonomous.ai with promo code R-fd299C for discount at checkout. Sturdy materials and eligible for 50% health subsidy if you are at Deloitte

We still aren’t operating at our previous capacity because it takes 10x the number of steps to get a motion heard or an order entered—90% of our workload.
