Looking for a new office chair. I use my desktop approx 8-12 hours a day so need something capable of sustaining long periods of sitting.
Ideal must haves:
- Adjustable lumbar support (not cushion based) - I've never had this before not even in my cars but I find after many hours my back can be a little painful so I want to try it
- Seat tilt & lock at several angles (for when I want to put my feet up)
- Height adjustment (obvious but you know)
- Must have arms
- Ideally leather / high quality faux
- Decent castors
- I prefer the look of heavy duty leather chairs as opposed to mesh based office chairs so probably more "gaming"/office chairs despite me hating the gaming term nor being an avid gamer (championship manager and ICC aside)
Aware of the following brands
Any others I should be looking for?
Currently I have an IKEA Malkolm that's served me well for over 7/8/9 years (pictured) it's just not as comfortable as when new anymore..
My parents have the IKEA Markus and I'm not a big fan although it's not uncomfortable..
Obviously don't want to spend hundreds/thousands on the likes of a steelcase or Herman Miller but appreciate it's a long term investment and should last a minimum of 4/5 years so say £400 max?
