After the unexpectedly big discussion on mice, I’m looking to get a new desk chair.
I’ve had my current one for a good 5 years or so, and it’s by far the longest surviving chair I’ve owned, but it’s starting to show it’s age, and is quite tatty, and not quite as comfortable as it used to be. It’s a DX Racer (not sure which model)
I know that they get stick, but honestly, it’s served me well, but it’s time is almost up I fear.
I’ve tried many of the cheaper bog standard office chairs, but they have never lasted more than a year or two before something goes wrong with them. My last “cheap” office chair completely snapped…somehow. (I’m not that fat…honest!)
I’m kinda over the whole “leather” chairs too, and I think I want something that’s fabric or something instead, as the leatherette always wears away, splits, and flakes, and it’s kinda nasty to look at after a while.
Im in UK land, so anything European access is going to be better. I hear good things about the Noble chairs, which are of a similar vein to DX Racer, but seem to be better quality. They’re a little on the expensive side though.
I’ve also heard ok things about the IKEA chairs, like the Markus, but I have no idea. They’re reasonably priced.
Just please bare in mind, I’m not minted, and don’t want to be spending £800 on a chair, so although I’m sure you mean well, please don’t mention herman miller lol…
