over budget slightly, but 100% worth it. You can thank me later.

a lot of votes for the Herman Miller Aeron. How much should I pay for one approximately? There seems dozens of distributors around my area, and I just wanna get an idea what you guys paid. Thanks guys!

I made the mistake of skimping on my office chair and now I'm paying for it with this sh!t chair. Invest in posture if you're going to be sitting in it for hours at a time.

Herman Miller Aeron is expensive but worth every penny. Brand new is out of range but check craigslist, there looks to be a ton of used ones for sale in your area. Just check them out for a good one and check out Herman Miller website to find the one you need based on your height and weight.

The bouncing balls are nice but it seems like they would be a liability.

kneeling chairs have their place, I kinda wish I still had mine. At my son's baseball games, I spend about half of each game in a kneeling position on the bleachers. It's just not practical to support your entire weight on the hard metal edge of the bleacher gashing your kneecap.

If you price out what you want on the Herman Miller site, you can get an idea for the highest that you will pay. Many places may be able to negotiate on price, and you should be able to pay less than what you see on the HM site.

I'm not supposed to say what I pay for mine from a buddy who owns an interior design company that sells them, so I will let others respond in that aspect. I will say, if you get a HM chair, you will end up owning more than one since they last forever. I inherited one from my old man that is going on 35 years old now, still as comfortable as I can ever remember and I have only had to replace casters over the years.

I sit in a Herman Miller but I have to be careful because the seat is woven & see-through so if I'm having a gas problem that day anyone that walks in they are going to get a huge whiff. There is no way to 'gas trap' it in your pants and let it out by standing up. It's gettin' out there and if you don't have a fan it's not going anywhere.

Great chair though.

It's this one by the way.

If you have room, have an alternate desk raised so high that you stand to work at it. Then install a treadmill

IF you get a chair that is SO comfortable you never want to get out of it, I can pretty much gaurantee you won't get up and walk around, stretch, and take a break.
