Ten days ago I reported that my Aeron chairs had arrived. Ten days on and all I can say is that they are GREAT!
While they seem to be really expensive, I figured that I’d already spent almost every working day since 1992 sitting in front of a computer, and was likely to continue to do so for many more years yet. And all that time I’ve sat in cheap, crappy chairs that did nothing for my back or posture. If I think how many cheap office chairs I’ve purchased for myself in the past 15 years (plus all the cheap ones provided at my various workplaces), I reckon I’d have paid for an Aeron and a half by now! Aerons have a 12 year warranty. If you amortise the cost over 12 years, they’re not so expensive after all. And if you also save on chiropractor or masseur bills, the cost is even less. It sounds like I’m justifying the cost – I guess I am! But one chair for 12+ years, compared to three or four chairs over that time plus chiropractor bills and the Aeron doesn’t look expensive at all!
I’m not saying that these Aeron chairs will suit everybody, or cure any back ailments, but in my opinion they are WAY better than any other work chair I have sat in. And my husband agrees – he loves his Aeron too!
BTW, in a shameless plug, you can now purchase your very own Aeron through my Amazon store!
