Being the nice MD that I am, I asked my staff what they would most like in our office.

Top of the list came New Office Chairs (below ceratin unmentionable females).

anyway considering there are only 4 of us, I am quite happy to fork out some s for quality chairs, but do not want to get ripped off.

Any ideas, tips, or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

thnx in advance

Make sure it adjusts in all directions.

height, tilt/height of back, pitch os seat.

Lumbar support. I company I know bought loads of leather "executive" chairs that people are now complaining about as they have no support. They look good though. :)

Get em to sit in them for a while, not just for two seconds, remember the old shoes situations, seems confrotable > Buy. Wear them for a day > agony.

I always like the idea of the ones with a subwoofer under your bum and stereo seakers either side of your ears.

There's a highly talented deaf female percussionist whose name escapes me, but she had a special chair built that transmits certain frequencies in music to certain parts of her body. Fantastic.

Mebee not so great for an office though.

anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, ukgimp is right, over long term use, lumbar support is everything.

Shakil, I wish all MDs were as enlightened as you. I have this cheap little office char with stains on it (not mine) that kills my back. Can I come and work at your company? I'm cheap.....

Thanks for the replies, been out all day and just catching up on emails.

came across these www.posturemax.co.uk today, definately look funky and stylish to me.

managed to get a free trial for a few days before I part with the cash, not cheap though.

will take a look at the links above.

mucho gracias
