There are about a million chairs listed on Amazon, etc. The folding chair with extra cushions just isn't going to cut it long term. What's everybody using?

DON'T cheap out on your chair. if you are going to invest in ONE thing it's gotta be your chair. Steelcase, herman miller, etc. Be prepared to drop some coin.

I got a good chair from Costco a few months ago. It was more then i've ever spent on a chair before, but Lumbar is way more important then you realize

I have a classic no-internal-movement L shaped chair. I love it. Haven’t sat better.

Only improvement could be the fabric. I think this fabric is twice my age.

We'll all have a good laugh in 20 years when "bad chair arthritis" strikes.

im using an ikea office chair I dont think I spent more than $100 on, and it has held up nicely over 7 years

To add to what Blair said...
It's a cliche that you should invest in a good mattress, since you spend ~1/3 of your life on it.
For most of us here, I'd expect the same logic applies to our home office chairs.

Well here is a nice little company that reconditions office furniture. https://www.crandalloffice.com/
Looks like the chair I’m eyeing is several hundred dollars less. Worth a look.

I've purchased reconditioned before, in fact I think this herman miller is one... I did a bunch of start up office build outs (love how Facilities gets lumped into IT), did a few Senator office buyouts. New Senator comes in, wants a new color or style or whatever, poof: one year old desks/chars for 60% off.

Just camouflage it

I’m with you, @rose! They’re all just hideous to me.

If you still haven't spent your tax return or you have $1,500 burning a hole in your pocket... https://store.hermanmiller.com/gaming/herman-miller-x-logitech-g-embody-gaming-chair/2517590.html?lang=en_US
