Do you find yourself spending an untold amount of hours in front of a computer? If that’s your case, then you can certainly appreciate the benefits of a comfortable chair. As I have been spending more and more time designing websites and coding responsive email templates, the inevitable question came to mind: “where to find an affordable chair for designers?”
I had looked at the offering from Herman Miller and as impressive as it looked, I also had to look after the bottom line. This is what my old office chair looked like by the time I started seriously looking:
The chair wasn’t really meant for heavy use and even though it was rather comfortable, it heated up very fast during the summer months and most of the time I found myself not sitting in a proper position. With the Embody chair being completely out of reach, I decided to try my luck at Staples and it was there that I found the Tempur-Pedic chair.
The chair’s seat is made with authentic Tempur material and it’s quite comfortable. I’m assuming is no Embody chair, but for the price (CAD$329 – assembled and home delivered) it was a no-brainer. I’m definitely sitting more upright now and whenever I have spent long hours on the computer, my back and shoulders are not aching. So, if you are wondering where to find an affordable chair for designers, do your own research first, but I can honestly say that I’m pretty happy with my decision.
