But today, for Christmas, I received a leather surfaced director's chair with wheels, leanback, arms, and height adjustment. I'm on it now. I could get used to it but miss the towel.
What are you sitting on now? How does it feel, and can it be improved?
If I'm settling in to work for a while the cat gets evicted, but there's still lots of room for improvement.
I really need to take advantage of the post christmas sales and get something decent.

At home I have a comfy old leather thing with well worn cheek marks - fits like the proverbial glove. At work I shuffle about on a horrobly uncomfortable waste of money.
It feels okay, but I have to shift around quite regularly to get comfy and once or twice the guys from work think I've let one go (it's quite a squeaky chair...)
Can definitely be improved; a director's chair sounds great.
Is "Director" printed on the back of your chairs?
they do work wonders ( although you still need to get up and move around sometimes :) ..even if you are big and heavy like YT ..250lbs
And keep the monitor(s) below eye level .. top of the image area of the screen about 6 inches below your eye level is kind to your cervical vertebrae ..and so better for your shoulders ..and use a low table for your mouse ( or ball ) and keyboard ..high desks are bad for your back ..
Simple. Very affordable. Heavy Duty.
Just like the one I used to sit in when I had a real job. The used office furniture place let me look around in their inventory otherwise I would have never found it.
They had plenty of fancy stuff but no-thank-you. They let this one go for a song.
Either that or the bed or couch (not wise on the back, but works in a pinch!)
Steelcase Leap, Coach Edition. The regular leather is kinda tacky - I'd go for cloth first if they didn't have the Coach version.
Nobody asked, but since we are ergonomics... my mouse wrist wrest is from Imak, "ergobeads". At about $10, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the Leap, and probably does more for me. I just discovered this - found it in the drugstore. Now I need to find the matching keyboard wrist rest.
It's basically a little countoured bean-bag. The beads work better than anything I have tried. The callous on my left wrist (I am left-handed) is just about gone, along with the pain in my left hand. I highly recommend it!
It is my 5th or 6th version of this chair, I get a new one every year. They all have the same problem, insufficient arm padding!
To all chair makers out there.....stuff those arm rests.....and stuff them good!
My elbows don't need to feel your quality construction, they need to feel your quality padding!
