Chair Heaven!

One of the guys at work has been thinking of getting new chairs for the office because the ones we have are fairly crappy. He wants a really good quality chair and the chair of preference is an Aeron Chair from Herman Miller.

These chairs are not cheap, the base cost for them in Australia is about $1400 each, but for that you get a superb quality chair with a 12 year warranty, so you are guaranteed at least 12 years worth of use of of them. That equates to less than $120 a year, which is actually good value.

There's 8 of us here, plus they will want another 4 or so upstairs, so that's an even dozen chairs. That's a hell of a lot of money to put into office furniture, so we wanted to check out the chairs before making the commitment. As a result we got a single Size C chair delivered for a week long evaluation to check them out, and we should be getting a Size B chair delivered tomorrow or Thursday as well.

There are three sizes of chair, A, B and C, with the C being the largest. The smaller sizes aren't quite as deep or wide as the C, so you can pick whatever is appropriate for you.

I'm in love. Since I was the one who organised the trial, I get to test it out first, and once I tweaked a few settings on the chair (there are 5 points of adjustment, not including the arm-rests) I'm finding it the most comfortable and best designed chair I have ever sat in. If we end up getting a dozen or so (and it's looking more and more likely that we will) then we will most likely get a reasonable discount on them, dropping them down to between $1000 and $1100 each. As a result I am seriously considering getting one myself for home as this is in the long run going to save me a hell of a lot of money in Chiropractor visits alone.

It's forcing me to sit upright without having to think about it, and I've discovered that my monitors are too low as a result.

Not in a breezy way, I'll assume. :)

They do look comfy. It just looked like it'd be really cold as well.

I probably sound like a complete nudist in this thread. I can stop now.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
