    I am currently looking for a very well designed, comfortable, ergonomic, stylish, chair for my computer/office desk at home. While I work abroad a lot, when I'm not abroad, I do a lot of work from home.

    So, most days, I spend quite a few hours (sometimes, many more than that) sitting in front of my screen. Needless to say, back pain is something of an issue, and I'm the first to concede that my posture could be improved.

    However, my brother recently suggested that I invest in a Klober office chair - he and his partner bought two over the past few months - and they say that they are very happy with them.

    The reason I have started this thread is to ask, firstly, whether anyone else has had any experience with Klober chairs, (they are a high end German company), and whether they are happy with their purchases.

    And, secondly, if there are any other good quality, well made (and attractive in appearance) comfortable, ergonomic chairs that forum members may well wish to recommend instead.

    Grateful, as always, for the courtesy of any replies which posters may take the time and trouble - and thought - to post.

    Chairs that are good quality and well made are easy to recommend. You did ask for comfortable and ergonomic though. Help us out by telling us your approximate height, weight, and build.

    For example, if you're a tall, heavy guy, I'd totally recommend Nightingale CXO Executive. It's padded like a champ and can handle marathon sessions. It is also the most solid, tank-like and heavy as hell chair I've ever sat in. If you're average build and under 6'2" or so, and prefer leaning back as opposed to being bolt upright, I'd recommend a Herman Miller Embody without hesitation. It looks gimmicky, but the chair back truly flexes with your every movement and it feels great. Stylish, too.

    Herman Miller Mirra - far more comfortable (for me) than the better known HM Aeron.

    I did an extensive research on different ergonomic chars, and Mirra is by far the best in terms of price/performance. You can get ones in very good (mint) condition off ebay for a decent price as well. If money is not an issue, I would consider HM Embody (its awesome).

    However, chairs are very subjective, make sure you try them out "yourself".
