Indeed. I have a (now discontinued) IKEA chair which has
performed very well for some years now. My first attempt was a
different (even more expensive) model, which had a floating
mechanism which couldn't be locked out. Even slacked fully off,
my upper-body mass was too small to overcome the spring, and it
was permanently trying to tip me off.
BTW, adjustable arms are worth having.

I did think of this, the chair I used to have at work didn't have
adjustable arms and it was extremely frustrating, I have now been given
chair with no arms, still, at least I can get closer to the desk.
I bought one from staples online a few years back (leather 24hour
operators chair). One slight limitation is that the shops and online
shop are not actually the same business unit and don't carry the same
stock. However the online outfit does have a try and return if not happy

What you want, although you might not know it yet, is a Herman Miller Aeron
chair. They cost many coins but they last forever and your arse and your b

I cannot currently afford one, so have an IKEA Marcus. Sturdy (I'm not smal
l) and comfy. It is a high back chair though, but I think they do similar m
odels with low backs if you prefer. But trust me, you want to save up and g
et an Aeron. Oh boy oh boy...
There were a lot of them in the recent auction of equipment and fittings
from the BBC world service studios they made quite a bit of money each..
I do remember years ago there was a specialist chair manufacturer over
in Northampton somewhere and they spent in those days, 25 odd more years
ago, around a grand for a good office type chair for their studio

If you are actually at home, I recommend a La-Z-Boy recliner chair with a sheepskin rug on it. I have a Bean Bag Lap Tray for the keyboard and mouse, and a 32 inch computer monitor and a couple of tables for drinks and food.
Following the advise given on here, I've had a look in the local
Staples, quite a few nice chairs there, some better constructed than
others. The one I liked most was the 'Guiseppe'; felt very comfortable
and relatively well built. The only thing is the lack of arm rest
I probably wouldn't pay the non-discounted £211 for it but at 33% off
it's only £139 which is a bit more realistic.
They had some mesh backed chairs and I didn't like these at all.
Currys/PC World didn't have anything.
