computing position. I must have the most uncomfortable chair imaginable.I can usually only manage about 30 minutes at a time. Could someone please suggest an online supplier of reasonably priced office chairs and any advice on what to look for would be great.
Go to any office supplies store - staples, Office World, PC World etc - and sit in one. Its the only way to be sure. Get one that supports your back and which you can sit upright in - it will have to be height adjustable.
also another good thing too look out for is auctions...
When a local company goes into liquidation all it's assests are either taken away for other purposes or more often auctioned.
You can pick up really good deals here! Went to know a few years back. My mate picked up a panasonic 19" monitor for £20 and i got a nice leather office chair for £15! (amonst other stuff; quite nice it was until my mates trashed it one night!
Look out in the local paper or look in a local directory for auctioners.
to give you an idea of how much i saved... I looked in the viking direct catalogue (anb office supplier) and same chair was going vo around £149.99) if i remember correctly.
OK so it had been used, but for a nice comfy chair it wasn't bad. Nice arm rests, adustable almost everything! seat height, back rest height, back rest angle, back rest Z axis position, and of course arm rst adjustment.
Good suggestion by DS. I would add that arm supports are a great help, especially over long periods. I originally used a typist chair, but it proved to be a total failure for all the obvious reasons [bad back,aching limbs].Moved up a step to an executive leather style chair, and never once have I considered it a bad buy. Nearly all the modern day suppliers stock a 'mock' type executive leatherette chair at constant discount prices,so check these out and go for it, you will see and feel the difference.
Thanks for all suggestions. I went to Staples & PC world today to have a look around. I tried a very comfortable leather faced chair with padded arms for £119.Also saw a fabric one for £99 ,but the actual seat was too short. Good sugestion about a local sale. we have one here every wednesday so before deciding I'll go along to see whats on sale.
