Tried the Aeron in JL, didn't like. Settled on a Steelcase Think.

Suggest you try before you buy.
Referb Steelcase for the win
Considering the aeron or the embody. Trouble is; I can't find a trial anywhere near where I live. Been looking for budget alternatives without much luck

I had the steelcase leap and hated it. Well built but I kept slipping off the chair as the end part is angled downwards.
Picked up a Mirra 2 for €230 a year ago on classifieds and it's been great. No more back pains etc. It's not super comfy in the beginning but it definitely grew on me.

Would love one, I'm too scared to even click link... Prices so damn high...
Bought a secondhand HM Aeron from eBay little over 5 years ago for £300 - the best desk chair I've ever owned & have had no back problems since. What I also love about it is that it has stayed exactly the same shape as day one.

All the several others lasted 1-2 years, cost more in total, changed shape & gave me severe back problems - complete false economy & downright painful buying anything else apart from a HM or similar. Would recommend 1000%, but brand new is just too expensive.

Edit: Just noticed a new seller (with zero feedback) on Amazon doing them 'like new' starting from £249 delivered, but hard to believe the very short delivery dates considering they're sent from India: amazon.co.uk/s?&…F7H - fakes or genuine? Or, even fake seller? google.co.uk/sea…zon

Ikea now do a high back chair with adjustable seat depth and lumbar support called the jarvfjallen or something. Solves my issues with their markus high back chairs. Maybe worth a look?
I have an Aeron, however my new fave is a Ballo for £200 (glutes like rock now).
I've had an Aeron for over 5 years now. I paid £270 second hand off eBay. I haven't had to do a thing to it since aside from dust it. Fantastic chair, and just what I needed as I was getting serious fatigue in my back. I work from home so spend long hours on this chair and it's 10/10. I would pay the new price if it was the only option, but I'd take a look on eBay as there are good deals to be had on these second hand. Mine was manufactured in 2011 so it was only about 2 years old when I bought it and was in as-new condition. With so many companies kitting out entire offices with these, there are vast numbers of them available second hand or refurbished.

Thanks for the advice. I'm seriously interested in picking a second hand one up. How do you find out the manafacturing year?

There is a sticker underneath the seat.

I paid £50 for a Hermon miller Chrome £900 quid hobbies and another good quality office chair both used of course. My employer were selling some off. Bargain. I kept the HM and my son took the other chair. I sit in a HM all day long at work and really like them. I wish I bought 2 of the hm chairs but can't really complain and that would have been greedy. They are an awful lot of money new and there are other good quality office chairs cheaper. If you sit in a chair all day long it is worth having a good quality one that is comfortable. I have had no back issues.

Been watching prices for a while and you’re looking easily at a few hundred quid for one. Not always wasy to tell true wear and tear and exactly what it is loaded up with.
As an aside, i am 6’1 and so i am one the borderline of size ‘b’ and ‘c’. Anyone got any experience of the B and C and of a similar size?
I'm 6'1", about 13st and the B fits me fine.
Love my Aeron, I wouldn't go back now. Helped solve my back aches.
Picked up 2nd hand on eBay.
I have a mark 1 version of these (version in the pic is the new remastered Aeron) and it's great, although not best chair if you're a natural sloucher.

As far as I know (apart from the sticker r-c mentioned), there's no easy way to gauge the age these. Buying second hand could mean that you're buying a 20 year old chair. To be fair though, it'll probably still work though for another 10 years!!
We have these at work and find them to be super supportive and comfy. For home I went with the IKEA Markus and I must say they are just as fab! So comfy I fall asleep in them. Outside of work of course
I didn't like IKEA Markus, because somehow it was pushing my neck forward. I bought a 5-6 year old Steelcase Leap from ebay for £150. That was almost 10 years ago and the chair is still in good condition.
I'll check again at 51% off

Anyone got a ‘c’ and can comment?
Had one of these in a previous job and they are the best chairs! Shame about the high price
Bought from these guys a couple of times no issues and all good quality. Not affiliated with site at all.

Settled with leather STEELCASE LEAP V2 CHAIR for the past 3 yrs and would buy again (but not leather, a little too slippy). Had a Herman Miller Embody but did not like it. Keep an eye and stock as it changes week to week.

Never buy cheap chairs, unless they are refurbs! Check out these guys officeresale.co.uk
Bought a few dozen from them lately and very impressed. Good if you can try before you buy.
Can anyone recommend a decent chair for around £100?
I am all for ergonomics but this is too stupid. Furniture is worth nothing... when I sold my house, I had 3.5k worth of furniture sold for 350 quid... a cool 90% depreciation in 3 years.

I'll never spend crazy amounts on furniture again... buy low... spend it on a holiday or something you actually will cherish.

+1 for these guys. I had a HM Mirra from them 2 years ago (used but VGC) for 150 quid at the time. Beautiful chair. The seat pan developed a huge tear after a year or so and these guys replaced the seat with a brand new one FOC. I dread to think how much these cost from HM...... £400 maybe? Show me another company who would replace used for new after at least 12 months!
Cannot recommend them enough for customer service and no, Im not affiliated with them either.

Not one to spend huge amounts on furniture but have to say I don't quite agree with this. You will spend 100x longer using and seeing your furniture than a weeks holiday, I'd rather enjoy being surrounded by and using decent furniture every day than making do with some cheap tat that was 60 percent off from argos

Keep the chair, don't sell it.

Holiday has 100% depreciation.
I think these chairs are still cheaper here officechairsuk.co.uk/her…ir/

Was looking at buying one but didnt like the one I tried in John Lewis. Ended up with a cheap IKEA chair, so far so good.
Gumtree is the place to look, picked one up for £250 in good condition, when offices get cleared a lot of these are flogged off cheaply...

This is why I dont eat. I buy food and then it depreciates 100% immediately cuz of the lackluster used food market.
Maybe just me, but I absolutely hated the Aeron I had at a place I worked. Spending anything more than about 30 minutes in it resulted in horrible numbness in the back of my thighs as the mesh bottom flexes and leaves them resting on the hard plastic edge. I always wanted one after I first seen one in the flesh at a clients site, but having used one properly they are not for me.
I've got an Aeron Size B and also a Mirra 1. Both are fantastic chairs, although bought mine on ebay and collected them in person.

Really comfortable and supportive.

Dont care how much it depreciates, these chairs have saved me from crippling back pain for at least 5 years now. You might be ok sitting on a tea chest but sorry its not for me. And when I get divorced Im taking the chair with me. The missus can keep the rest!
I bought the Mirra chair for everyone at work 3-4 years ago. Only one has been replaced because a guy ripped the seat with his rear (zipped) pocket. No complaints of backache or fatigue from anyone.

I've tried both. I'm 1.86m (apparently 6' 1.22'') and 68kg and I've most recently bought a 'C' sized Aeron from ebay. I had the Steelcase Leap for a couple of years before that, but it was too small for me (esp with regards to the back support). Have tried all of Herman Miller's range at their HQ in London and I loved the Embody and the Aeron in size C (mostly for the extra seat length and height in the back support). I used size B at my job a couple of years ago and it was also great for me, but I still went with the 'C' in the end. But I would definitely recommend that you try them (visit Herman Miller if you can) to figure out how it fits for you, especially as I've seen such chairs last literally decades (well you know, as long as that can be, considering it came out in '92).
If you have any questions, always happy to help.
incredibal prices, have some heat!
