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!
Want an inexpensive yet elegant touch to your table decor? Chair sashes add a lovely accent to a dinner table and don't cost too much to rent. You can tie the sash horizontally with a bow or knot, or as I did, tie the sash vertically to change up the look on the chair. Another wedding chair decor idea is to make Just Married signs and place them on the back of the bride and groom chairs. For our wedding, we took two photos, superimposed Just Married on them and then enlarged and mounted the photos on foam core and placed the signs over the chair sashes.
Aside from some certain chairs in our house, most of our chair sitting time is spent on Office Chairs. This is one area of chair design and functionality that has come into its own over the last few years. Manufacturers are realizing that people want office chairs that provide comfort all day long and will not send you home with a back ache. Or perhaps you are concerned about the comfort of your clients that visit your office. Office chairs, although they don't always look like it has been designed with comfort in mind. Even if sitting for 2-3 hours in this chair, your body will love you. A good office chair should not be overlooked as an essential piece of equipment to not only your work but your well being.
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.
Being practical (isn't that a nice word for cheap, or Scottish?), I have used whatever chair I had available in the house for my office chair. I've been doing that since 1985 when I started working at home. Being practical isn't always so practical, based on my discomfort and back problems.
