Don't overlook places like PCWorld during sales. Often they have stores close to Staples outlets.

The first time I ever sat on a mesh bottomed cair I was amazed by the difference. It is what I would buy if I wanted a replacement.

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 facility.

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 ack will thank you.
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...

Many coins indeed! I think a little bit of me died inside when I seen the price...

Sometimes they're available second-hand. And they _are_ really, really, good.

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 operators.....

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 adjustment.
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.
