Can someone give me $900 please, becuase that is how much money I will need to compensate for the ammount of money I am willing to spend to buy any chair. But, I am sure it is worth it to those that need a nice chair, its just no worth it to me. Maybe when I get older I will care more . . .

MIRRA from Herman Miller really the best chair at the moment? Or will be the new chairs SUMO from Allsteel, CONTESSA from Teknion or THINK from Steelcase a real alternative?

Aeron or Mirra are both the top chairs to use for ergonomics. I've had an aeron at work for a while and I highly recommend it. Be sure to get the posture fit back support instead of the lumbar as it is much more comfortable.

And to think that I work sitting on a stool... :(

I used the Mirra at an office before and it just didn't move me that much. I found it comfortable but not astounding. Of course, I shift around a lot, and try not to stay sitting in one place for long periods of time. If I couldn't / didn't, might be another story. Of course #2 = I also go by style more than ergonomics. ;)

I want to work in an office where one of these is considered appropriate office furniture:

I've picked up 5 or 6 Aeron chairs in my family now at the Herman Miller outlet store in western MI. When you're only paying 300 or 400 bucks they seem like one of the best values in the world.

I like the Mirra, it's comfortable, but i don't like the material that the seat and backs are made out of. seems cheap.

the Aeron speaks for itself. Worth every penny.

right now i want a Freedom chair with headrest, but they're like, $1500 or something. the task version (minus headrest) is a bit less.

personally, i like http://www.dwr.com for this type of furniture.

hey paul...i thought of you when i got a catalogue from Topdeq. very cool office stuff that would also be suitable for a moderne home interior. they have quite a few great looking chairs too.

I own a fully loaded mirra in all black and I couldn't be happier with it in every aspect. expensive but you're covered for 12 years on this product from defects or what not. my favorite things about it is how amazingly adjustable the arms are and how comfortable the back is. sitting in the chair is addictive.

if you want one but have doubts just go sit in one.

DWR has some super-cool stuff. I was really excited to see one of their stores in DC while I was there for the 4th, but naturally it wasn't open the day I was in Georgetown.... :(

As far as I know, the only HM outlet is in grandsville? (right next to Holland), MI. It used to be directly in Holland, MI but they moved it last year.

You can get all kinds of amazing stuff cheap there, when moving into my new house I rented a truck to carry stuff 500 miles from there and it was still only a fraction of the price retail.

Ooo, very nice, they have some wonderful lighting that would be great for home use... I'll have to spend some time shopping around there.

It's hard sometimes to find these types of stores, that carry a wide range of products and designers. Most of them tend to be individual stores, lacking a website or catalogue... so it's cool to find comprehensive, large catalogues... individual shops are great, but the pricing can be terrible.

I would say that the back is quite useful for hot days.....the back breathes! The seat material is same from the Aeron seat. By the way, the back is not plastic but polymer.......
