Don't buy special order. You take it out of the store or take delivery - it is yours forever whether you use it or not.
A few years ago I was in a visit to my friend, called me to see where he works. 3 chars were in his office, and he insisted me to sit in his chair. So much comfortableness and sturdiness in one simple chair. Back then I wasn't aware that a chair can be that much expensive, and the first time I heard of Herman Miller, cannot recall the model...
If the job requires a full-time sitting then a good investment in the chair must be an imperative. I think that people don't pay too much attention but it is as important as the bed where you sleep.Herman Miller, Knoll, Charles Eames, others from the 1940s through 1960s can be worth a small fortune. Certain early bookcases can sell upwards of $40,000. Same with early Euro designers. Finn Juhl, UMS Pastoe, Rasmussen, Mogens Koch... too many to list.
The collector market for the early stuff is bonkerz. A chair can be more valuable than a Ferrari.
Makes $1,500 for a new chair of the same design and original manufacturer seem like a bargain.
You shouldn't be sitting for that long. If you sat for 2 hours, 4 hours or 10 hours, you should find a seat comfortable and supportive not based on price. See other replies for the best solution.Thanks well I sit in my chair at least 6 or 8 hours + a day so how much do you think I should spend ?
Sorry I guess I am late to reply here. But as I gone through the chair you listed and ordered, It seems to lack lumbar support which is a crucial ergonomic feature for any chair.Ok I bought a Steelcase Gesture brand new from Amazon.com so I could get the 12 year warranty! Have 30 days to return it too if I don't like it!
