Like many people, I work full-time from home. Most of my workday is spent immersed in a technological web of online communication and 3d simulation. Which means I’m mostly sitting in front of my computer.
When assembling a home office, I think it’s critical to have a great chair. Not “okay.” Not “good enough.” If you consider the fact that your health literally depends on the ergonomic quality of your chair, you’ll realize you need a GREAT one.
When I moved to Montreal and was setting up my new home office, I needed to buy a new chair. I wanted something with simple yet very effective embedded ergonomics. After a lot of research I eventually found the Herman Miller Setu Multipurpose Chair. Herman Miller furniture is a little pricey, but the Setu (about $500) costs less than many generic office chairs. And in my experience, Herman Miller products last forever.
In the past I’ve tried dozens of different office chairs with varying levels of success, but my Setu chair is definitely my all time favorite. It’s been 9 months since I started using it and it is still the chair of my dreams.
What’s your Dream Chair?
P.S. This isn’t a sales pitch or marketing attempt, and I have no commercial or vested interest in Herman Miller. I simply sat down at work today and for some reason immediately thought “Boy, I love my chair!”
