IKEA chair FTW. I love that thing!

I find it to be really comfortable, but then again, I'm 18 and pretty much anything is still comfortable to me. :D

They're so cute and they match my iPod. :)

The wheels are really good, but hard to bang into the bottom.
I had to get out a huge rubber mallet... after about 20 minutes of cursing and hammering, I just got my neighbor to put in the wheels. :o

but it's a good chair in all other respects. Also comes in black.


or did the OP mean different office chair, like what a CEO might have and secretly spin around in?

Exactly my sentiment. It's about time we had a thread about chairs, considering we sit in them for at least 6 hours a day. A good chair is essential for good health and posture. :p

Lane eXtreme Tech Chair, I got mine for $129 a few months back when they went on sale. I highly recommend it. I purchased a leather chair from sams club a few years ago for $99 and it was good, when I tried this lane chair out in staples I fell in love :) This is a very solid chair too.

I have had a Herman Miller Aeron chair for the last 8 years. It was painfully expensive but worth every penny. Its incredibly comfortable and durable. Now they come with a 12 year warranty. LINKY (http://hermanmiller.com/CDA/SSA/Product/0,1592,a10-c440-p8,00.html)

Nice chairs so far....and no they don't have to be CEO type chairs. Any chair you use at your desk.

I am sitting on an old Atlas speaker horn with a stool cushion bolted on where the driver used to be. The current equivalent seems to be the DR-54.

I have an Herrmann Miller Eames Lounge Chair.

This is what it would have looked like new, before someone alterned it into an office chair and before decades of use:

And today (from the back, anyway):

I've always been intruiged by chairs of this style, they don't look terribly comfortable, but they must be, because people rave about them. I've never enquired about price...what do they run it.

cringe factor?

My Aeron was US$900, but the price is dependent on which size you purchase, what finishes, and what features. Expect to pay between $500 and $1200.

What "features" are there? It's a chair... you sit on it... errr....? :p

The company I used to work for had them. They were really nice but I didn't realise who made them or how much they cost until I read these forums :)

Don't worry happens to us all. Too much to drink is normally my downfall, probably explains why you managed just 20mins too.

I have the same desk and bin, but damn the desk is crap. It's just built out of paper. I knew it was cheap but I drilled a hole in it, and it just started to fall apart... Ah well you get what you pay for I guess :).
Love the chairs though, I got a real good one right now, but hate the look maybe I'll test one of those out at IKEA and see if they are comfy enough.

Feels pretty solid to me... but then again I didn't drill it.

Aug 2, 2006, 11:28 AM
Hehe that could be the case yeah. I'm thinking about filling up the hole now and adding a red 'glossy' paint to the table top. Then get rid of the rest, and add some metallic legs.
http://www.ikea.com/PIAimages/57139_PE162761_S3.jpg
But maybe it's cheaper to just buy a new desk :), I would really love a glass one but they are so expensive... Of the same series I got this drawer, and it's actually very good and a lot heavier then the table itself :)
http://www.ikea.com/PIAimages/50243_PE146279_S4.jpg
But back on topic, we've talken enough about the desk now :P
My ugly chair :)
