I'd loved the Aeron chairs for years. They are ergonomic, in multiple sizes to fit any stature, and made of recycled materials that could be recycled at the end of the chairs' long life, but the price kept me away. After listening to several of my friends rave about their Aeron chairs it was finally time for me to give in to comfort. Herman Miller makes Aeron, and have they put thought into their creation!
Although most people typically associate cheaper prices with cheaper products, this does not hold true in the case of stacking chairs. While they are less in price than most other pieces of furniture, the need for a comfortable surface to sit on is not comprised in the design. Many come with a curved back rest with built-in lumbar support and a waterfall seat edge. For most guests that will be sitting in your chairs, this will be sufficient enough to provide them with enough support and a comfortable sitting experience for a few hours at a time. If your guests will be spending multiple hours at a time seated in your stacking chairs, it may be worth the investment to purchase stacking chairs with a padded seat(fabric, vinyl, or leather). Some more expensive stacking chairs even come with an adjustable lumbar support to properly position where the support will be needed specific to the individual's back and armrests.
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
