Post your office chairs

My comfy chair recent got broken by a very *heavy* man so i have to get a replacement. It has to be VERY comfortable seeing as i spend 80% of my time there. So folks show me what ya got.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is getting way out of control.

and don't tell me I don't have to read these threads... I still have to put up with all the "Post your [insert uninteresting object here]" titles in the thread lists.

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

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):



Very worn out but still very comfortable.
