Office chair recommendations - Page 3

But I had the embody and it's hard to beat except for the price

I've used a variety of modern office chairs in offices. The Aeron is decent, but I also saw a lot of them break.

What I've used for years is an old quartersawn oak steam-bent office chair. Found it for $35 at a junk store and refinished it myself. Solid oak might not sound comfortable, but it's the only thing that I've found comfortable for long hours.

Most have been plucked out of junk stores these days, but running a search for "antique office chair" on eBay will pull up quite a few. They don't have to be oak - you'll find them in beech, walnut, ash, and several other woods.

A side benefit is that these hold value and appreciate. Ten years on, it'll be worth more than you paid for it. Most new office chairs won't be worth anything.

The place where I work uses Aeron chairs.  People sit in those chairs all day.  Literally.  24/7.  Never seen one break.

 

Comfort-wise, gonna have to go with the Embody.

We had some larger people at my old office. I saw 15-20 Aerons cracked along the seat frame during the seven years I was there.

Maybe the fault of the user, but a little more plastic or bracing would be better.

I'm around 150 lbs. these days, but will stick with my oak chairs. I'd also consider one of the old steel chairs. I'm not crazy about plastic furniture.

I found a 2012, gently used, great condition Steelcase Leap V2 for $400. Is that a good price? It just seems...high. :(
