another computer chair gone duff they seem to last little more than 18 months, usual problem gas struts fail [i am 17 st]
instead of spending £100 on chairs that fail thinking about the aeron hermon mesh chair but they are very pricy at the moment. i am up at queens sq next week for a hosp appoint, i can remember years ago someone recommending a office chair shop near oxford st or portman sq but cannot find the link, might pay it a visit as i am in central london.
I have two chairs both of which are well over 7 years old and never had a problem with either of them.
One is a £100 Staples one that I got for £20 when my son worked there. The other is similar but not sure of the make. Both are the high back with arms style, adjustable height and tilt, one in a fabric finish, the other in a 'leather' finish.
They are both used for several hours each day by me and the 'Boss' and we are both over 17 stone.
they do not go over night but slowly get worse over time, the uppers are ok just the gas struts give out, first just accosionaly then get more frequent over time, till it collapses after about 15 mins.
thinking about going for a decent make and save in the long term.
had a look at the JL web their own make "Taylor" looks possible but will be trying loads out, i had thought the hermans were cheaper than £900 when i was working we had one for a grossly fat woman to sit on, they looked horrible but i used it one day and it was excellent very comfy.
