I ordered one from Amazon, but it’s not up to the task (yes, that is my review):
So, it’s not good for me, and she’s not satisfied enough at the price to keep it. I mean, it’s a $500 chair, it bloody well ought to fulfill it’s intended purpose. I need something with a seat depth adjustment and preferably a seat angle adjustment. Considering how much time I spend in the saddle, the prices are definitely worth it, IMO.
So now I am wavering between:
Herman Miller Embody®, at $1199.
Herman Miller Celle®, which with the options I want is about $819.
The HumanScale Freedom® chair, which is around $1000 + with the options I want:
The HAG H09 Inspiration® Chair, which with the options I want is about $1150.
Now, I really hate to pay this much for a chair, but if it’s the right chair, it’s a good investment IMO.
I’ve a compacted lower vertebrae from a construction site accident years ago, so comfort is a premium option, that isn’t really an option. I need something to ease the pain in my lower back.
The only other chair I was considering tips the scales at just under $2000, so one of these would definitely be preferred. Does anyone have any experience with any of these?
The nice thing with the Herman Miller chairs is that they have an excellent warranty. The Embody®, for instance, carries a 12 year warranty.
I’m also going to head to the local Office Depot, either tomorrow or Monday to check this out:
Now, at $199, I don’t have very high hopes for this, but it does have adjustable everything. Considering price, I could afford to buy 5 of them for less than the price of one Embody®, but the pain in my back is of prime importance here.
Anyone who has any additional suggestions, please chime in, even if you hate me.
