    The wife works for a company thats the area Herman Miller distributor, and their office is a working showroom. After a few weeks, they sell off their stuff. So she brought home a new HM Mirra chair for $200. Not bad for a $800 chair.

    ________________________________________________________________
    INFO:


    Total Back Support
    No adjustment needed. The pliable, elastic TriFlex back supports the entire spine and conforms to size, posture, and movements.

    Passive PostureFit performance. A camber shape at the base of the back gives healthful, comfortable support to the lower back below the beltline.



    A Balanced Ride
    Easy motion. The Harmonic tilt creates pivot points at the hip, knee, and ankle to allow easy and natural movement.

    Advanced spring technology. Users of all sizes feel equal resistance while moving anywhere in the wide tilt range; the sitter is always in control.



    Custom Seat Comfort
    AireWeave suspension. This elastomeric suspension seat follows the contours of the body, distributes pressure evenly, and provides aeration.

    FlexFront seat edge. The sitter adjusts the seat depth without moving the seat pan; there's never a gap between the seat and backrest.



    Aesthetic Appeal
    Innovative look. Mirra has a clean, light-scaled design that reveals the chair's features and function.

    Colorful choices. The backrest and seat suspension come in a range of colors that mix or match to complement interiors and other furniture.

    Traditional touch. The back can be upholstered in foam-free Latitude fabric without adding bulk to the trim profile; Latitude is breathable and maintains the total support of the TriFlex back.



    Earth Friendly
    Sustainable design. Mirra is made of a minimal number of parts and is easily disassembled for recycling; the recycled content is high, and it's 96 percent recyclable. Recylable fabric. Latitude back upholstery is 100 percent recyclable.

    What was your "old and busted" chair? That looks like something we make. :o

    What model printer is that, on the right? 9xxx series?

    I had 2 aerons that I sold because I thought they were uncomfortable. That one looks a little better though.

    I just recently brought home a huge leather armrested rolling chair from work, for free...I can spend so much more time in my office now before my wrists start to die.

    Makes a world of difference.

    Did you buy the correct Aeron size?

    I have a Aeron chair at work and I think its pretty good.
     
  16. hahahahahaha I used to have that chair at work and people kept stealing it so I just gave up and they ended up giving me a black leather chair. I prefer the nice cushy leather chairs. But here at home on hot days leather = :ugh:

    I just went back to my old leather chair. I didn't think the seating was all that comfortable compared to a bolstered seat and I hated that the arms would swing out by just pushing them. I don't sit in my chair straight up all the time, I like to kick back, throw my feet up and all that. Sometimes the hard plastic lining of the aeron would hurt me. :hsd:

    FWIW I had a size B and C chair. The B ebayed for 550 and the C for 625. :)
