Tell me where do you sit everyday at home and at work

Hey community.

Believe it or not. I sit in here more than 8 hours a day: http://www.ikea.com/es/es/catalog/products/10255307/

It happen me to move on a new apt. my old office chair was a bit old, and it was terrible weighty and big to transport to this new place. I had to save up space on the van so this Ikea chair, yes, a 9 euros chair became my daily chair. The first weeks it was painful, but I had to waste the money on other important things. Now that the cash is flowing I'm thinking in buying one. I guess it will be the Aeron, once of all, the chair I always wanted.

Please share your's, it doesn't matter the model, the price.

PD: at work i use a normal office chair.

    At home I use the IKEA Volmar office chair with an additional headrest. Image alt

    I had an aeron chair at work for while but I started to get hip pain after a long day of sitting :/, we decided to test out these ball chairs from gaia and the pain has completely gone away! The only thing is they are pretty close to the ground so if your desk is high then its a no go, plus you kinda have to keep your posture up so its more engaged sitting. I think it depends on you really aeron chairs are great, not so much for me, but on the expensive end for sure. The ikea version if much more affordable and I hear good things from people who use them regularly, but its ikea.

    I hear ya — spent too long working on one of these:

    "Great to stare at, terrible to sit on for 8+ hours a day"

    Finally traded it for an ostentatiously uglier IKEA Markus which, while not even on the same league as the Aeron, is a pretty decent office chair — and a small bargain.

    "Great that it's behind you most of the time..."

    That being said, though, if I had the money to shell out on an Aeron, I wouldn't think twice.
