I’ve been using a cheapish ikea chair for about a year, it’s ok but not super great. I’m probably replacing it soon.
I’m skeptical of the popular bucket seat gaming chairs, it seems like maybe their design priorities are more focused on aesthetic than on comfort + productivity. I could be wrong.
I have heard the Herman Miller Aeron is kind of a gold standard for office chairs. Very expensive but it looks like there are decent refurbished deals. I’m ok with getting a boring looking office chair if it’s going to be a great chair.
What do you use? What chairs are good or bad for productivity in your experience? Might also be helpful to include your height/body type in the discussion.
