Where can you buy a good office chair and sit/stand desk near Toronto? Getting them shipped from the US is mad expensive.

Yep. Purchased a few months ago. Got the ErgoChair2 on a sale and free shipping.

Wife bought that high backed which was about half the price. Months later, the seat cushion is basically flat and stretched out on the edge and ergonomics aren’t great so she bought an Obusforme for it too.

End of the day, I’m ordering one of those ergochairs for her birthday next month.

This company has office furniture stores in GTA. I also have a good chair from them.

IKEA’s ones aren’t terrible.

The startup I worked with prior had those in bulk. They’re not bad, and were comfy enough for me. But you can just tell they feel “light”.

Maybe try Wayfair

Also Costco has good ones nowadays

What model do you have?

IKEA sit stand desk is surprisingly very good quality

How long have you had it?

Primecables dual motor sit stand desk.

Tabletop can be purchased from numerous locations, Ikea tabletop seems to be the favourite of reviewers. Yes I have this and made my own tabletop in my woodshop. The desk incredibly sturdy and handles like a dream. I would also invest in a cable management system

Following!

Prime cables does a sit stand desk frame with dual motors which is reasonable. You can then get a ikea solid wood countertop or home depot solid wood option. All in youd be looking at circa 600 cad Inc taxes and you can pick the finish you want. I may be wrong but you'd be paying duty on the autonomous equivalent?

I am leaning towards this option. Trying to set a budget for the table top. The range online is huge.

I got a used/reconditioned Leap V2. Will let you know how that works out.

Anyone else get frustrated when a manager ‘thinks’ they’re being helpful by actively telling you that a lot of the stuff you do to help manage your ADHD is unnecessary and there’s a better way to do it? Like they mean well, but even when I try to tell them I do it for a reason they think I’m just being difficult - e.g. work in a team room with headphones on, have a physical to do list, have a bunch of tabs/docs open at one time, bring a second monitor, take regular short breaks etc.

I know everyone has a different kind of setup that works for them. I currently have a laptop, drawing pad, second monitor, and a desk riser.
