    Default Where to get Good Office Chair with Lumbar Support

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have recommendations for good office chairs with ergonomic design and lumbar support? My budget's around $400. $100+ types are a nono - I get a bad upper-back ache using these, and they just aren't durable, prob because I'm heavy at around 80+kg.

    Ikea and courts do sell some, but I'm not sure if those are ergonomically designed. Any bros know of any company that specialises in this, or any particular brand(s) that you would recommend? Thanks for your help!

    Look for those Herman Miller mesh chair knock offs. They should be in your budget and you can see them in ST ads frequently.

    Thanks hongsien, I'll go down and take a look this weekend. My back's killing me!

    Thanks petetherock. The Aeron chairs are really expensive, and might be a little overkill for my use. I'm using it at home and paying out of my pocket, not company's. As for the knockoffs... well.. a knockoff GF lightsphere I can accept, but this one is for the health of my back, so better play it safe. Thanks anyway pal

    Anyone else has other options for me to consider? Most of the office furniture suppliers don't list the specs of their chair, so I'm not gonna buy what I'm not sure of. Anyone knows any office chair shops that caters to personal use?

    KNOCK OFFs are not in the same prices as Herman Miller originals.

    Just wanna come back here and thank bro hongsien for his recommendation.

    I bought one of the Korean made office chairs, and has been using it for around 2-3 months now. Its really good - sturdy, stable and comfortable. Worth the buy. By the way, i also read up on sitting postures, and realised one should change a siting posture at frequent intervals to avoid over straining any one muscle group. No wonder no one posture was suitable for me...

    TS, you just missed a sale by BENEL. You should check it out. Over the weekend, prices pf 1400 chair was about 600. The model Q mesh should be in your budget.

    Has anyone tried Aldrich Office Furniture & Projects at Ubi?

    u should try duorest. Above your budget at $600+ but definitely worth it. It moulds to the shape of your body and relieves the pressure from your back very effectively.
