Can we talk office/desk chairs?
Are there actually any DECENT chairs for under $300 or so? I'm a big guy 6"2, 240 pounds with broad shoulders so I'm looking for something durable and comfortable for a few hours at a time.
I had this highly recommended mesh chair and the arms fell off after 4 months of use. After that, the wheels start popping off from the bottom and they could not be reattached because they were held in by some plastic that had been destroyed.
What is the advantage to an exercise ball?
I'd really like a standing desk, any decent budget ones?
I'm currently working on one of those folding plastic desks and an old uncomfortable wooden chair. Any upgrade would be nice.
I am a bit smaller than you - 6'0, 160 lbs, but even so I would recommend pic related. It costs around $200. I've had one for about a year and a half, and it is still going strong, and at around a quarter of the cost of a Steelcase Leap, it's nearly as comfortable (once make all the adjustments it allows; there are many, including back-height which would probably be useful for you). There's room enough in the chair for someone a bit broader than me, I think.
That's the chair I had that broke after 4 months if you read the original post.
I could see it being perfect for people under 200 pounds, but I barely used it and it fell apart under normal use.
I have the chair in OP's picture. It costs like 60 dollars and the gas lift only expands up to like 15 inches. You are sitting like 2 feet off the floor with it. It is a terrible, uncomfortable chair, but its so cheap.

no, anon. did you miss the shit that was posted here a month ago that proved standing desks are no better for your body than regular desks? as long as you're stationary it makes no difference whether you're sitting or standing, not to mention standing for 8 hours a day is uncomfy as fuck.
all crap chair. probably ca117 compliant foam laced with outgassing chemical poison mixture fire-&-human-potential retardant hurting people slowly every day hidden slowkill agenda.
wait what's that a mirage in the desert distance its HON BRAND. HON BRAND chairs NOT coated in ugly chemicals. HON BRAND chair of the future. HON BRAND chairs hip hip hooray for the abolishment of cancer cocktail often times making up TWO THIRDS of the foamweight of your chair! disgusting throwing up! HON BRAND, go HON.
If you go to a Sam's Club(if you live in america), they have nice ass chairs under $200. Actually had one for $95 that was leather and shit.(not this one, but it's decent too)
All you have to do is test the chairs out.
Quite simple: California technical bulletin 117 put cancer in the chairs you buy. Lucky for humankind, an amendment was made in 2013 called TB117-2013 that makes it possible for manufacturers to NOT add harmful chemicals to their chairs for fire resistance. However most companies are still spritzing their shit with ineffective garbage-molecules, making their way into the dust and the air you breathe, giving you a colorful array of health problems. Bad news is it's almost certainly in your couch & mattress too (part of the reason only the consumer can tear the tag off, you need to be informed that your mattress is laced with impending disease). If anyone actually gives a shit, furniture manufactured by Ikea after Jan 2015 should be devoid of these terrible chemicals. Also Staples, Ashley furniture & others have pledged to eventually phase out suppliers that add these chemicals, which is where I found the beacon of light and hope that is HON.

I've had this since the start of June 2015:
Serves me well, still in one piece. Putting it together was easy enough, its comfortable for me and everyone I've had round who's sat on it. Doesn't cost fuck all and yeah, pretty nice.
I'm certain if you spend 10x the amount it could be more comfortable, but it wouldn't be 10x more comfortable, I highly doubt.
Its a matter of preference though, I suppose.
As for me, I'm 6'2 and 230lbs
why is it so hard to find a dark green leather chair under 150? all of the ones are 200-1000
Pic related I had a PU Leather version of this and need a replacement
More like rips, my room has a lot of furniture of that color and I can't stand brown/black chairs and the best I can find of this chair is this
What the hell is saddle glove soft leather anyways?
