Sad old chair and middle aged bottom = bad mix. (Note the cat tail? That’s Ziggy! I decided to show the rest of that annoying fur ball since he would not cooperate when I was taking the picture)
I use this old ratty computer chair which I purchased at a local Napa Valley second hand store. I purchased it for my business working as an Aesthetician doing facials, makeup, and waxing. That was 8 years ago. At the time it was 4 dollars. It looks it, but what a deal!
As you can see it is spotted with paint, faded, and just plain pathetic – and it looks better in the picture than it does in real life. I have since tried to replace it with a newer model from IKEA but it was so uncomfortable for long term sitting that I have since reverted back to this old chair.
You ask me how do you manage with a chair like that?
Well, I won’t for much longer because now is my chance for a change of chairs. Get this amazing bit of synchronicity - I have been contacted by Jason at CSN Office Furniture and have been asked to review a chair for their site. Thank you Jason!
I have decided that I should go for both comfort, aesthetics, and functionality all within an ergonomic model since I spend hours each day working at the computer. Here is the link to the options that I had to choose from. If you are however looking for a more luxurious model (I would have loved one of these chairs) take a look at this gorgeous line of ergonomic chairs – Herman Miller.
To be sure of my choice my “inner geek” had to do a bit of research on the subject of what is important when looking for a computer chair where one sits all day. I found several links and some helpful information at the CSN site as well an OSHA link, both informative.
This is the chair I decided upon. It is called the Office Star. It has had great reviews on the CSN site – 13 of them. It is reasonably priced, and fits most of the specifications for ergonomic chairs stated on the OSHA site. Click on the picture for the CSN site link for this particular chair.
Now all I have to do is wait for it to arrive via UPS and post what I think about it with a picture at my desk space – which is really the dining room table - we shall blame that one on John (the husband) for confiscating the window desk.
Chair review coming soon!
Sorry Europe and Australia the home and office furniture from CSN is only available within the US and Canada.
