Recommend me /g/-approved chairs, please.
I'm thinking about getting the IKEA Järvfjället as soon as it's back in stock near me.

I move around a lot while I work from home, but I probably spend more than eight hours in my chair throughout the day and night (coding during the day, playing games during the evening). So I'd like something that's able to recline and be cozy during the evenings.
>>
Reminder: You can check out the annual 10-K report of any publicly-traded company to see what its biggest competitors are.
>>
Hopefully you've tried the chairs out.
I personally found the low-back and armless Langfjall to be for me - 182 cm tall, but again, not all bodies are the same.
>>
>>79681314
that is a good chair and you should get it and delete this dumb thread. bro its a chair lmao just sit in it and see if its comfy like lol come on bro like bro... bruh
>>
>>79681319
Thanks, anon. I've wanted to avoid the Herman Miller meme since their shit isn't worth buying unless it's through a business or used. I'll take a look at the brands listed in the image, hopefully one of them has something that'll be comfortable during the day and cozy in the evening.
>>
>>79681314
Buy an IKEA Markus instead. Essentially the same chair but a bit cheaper and you can't adjust the lumber support or armrests as much I believe. However they're built like a tank and will keep your ass comfy for a decade. I've had mine for 5 years and it's great.
>>
The Ikea chairs are horrible ergonomically. They just got popular with poorfags. If you spent 500 bucks on your graphics card, 1000 on a phone and 2000 on a TV you have no excuse for cheaping out on a chair that you will use WAY longer.
>>
>>79681314
Sitting on one right now, had it for almost 2 years, go get it boi.
>>79681369
Used to have a Markus before this one, it's just plain terrible compared to Järvfjället, not bad but this one is so much better.
>>
I've bought a 500 bucks chair with mesh back because it was a great deal, did I make a mistake? I've never had a mesh chair before so I'm wondering if it's comfy enough.
>>
>>79681336
I did, but I'm going to try it out one last time before buying it, unless I find something that seems like a better price/performance before it's back in stock.
The chair you mentioned looks comfortable, but I'd prefer something that has a headrest. I like reclining while I play games at my PC.

>>79681347
bruh

>>79681369
That's currently what I've had for over hour years now. It's almost perfect, but the lumbar needs to be slightly lower, I wish I could more the chair's seat forward a bit, and the headrest needs to be up a couple inches. The Järvfjället can do all that. Although, I have read that the Järvfjället can become uncomfortable on your upper back after sitting in it for awhile, which I can't really test for.
>>
>>79681405
That's a fair point, what kind of chair do you use? Are there any brands you'd recommend the most?
>>
>>79681424
>I have read that the Järvfjället can become uncomfortable on your upper back after sitting in it for awhile
Really depends on your back, that's the fucking catch with this chair.
You're either sitting it like it's cast onto your body or it will be a pain.
>>
>>79681411
>Sitting on one right now, had it for almost 2 years, go get it boi.
Does anything about it become uncomfortable for you after sitting on it for many hours straight?
>>
>>79681421
From my understanding, it might not feel better and it might even worse than good cushioning. The point of the mesh seems to be for breathability and longevity. Mesh seems like it'd have less longevity, to me, than a good cushion, but I've read that good mesh lasts much longer.
That's probably why Apple went with the ugly mesh on their new headphones.
>>
>>79681438
Any reliable office chair brand that you see in good companies. I would recommend German brands as this is where I live, not sure what the availability would be for you. Dauphin or Interstuhl for example are fantastic and affordable. I think in America Steelcase and Miller are pretty big and there's a big used market there for them.
>>
>>79681452
To me, no.
I heard that others don't like it. It's really a hit or miss, I do not know how Ikea handles returns, I'd give it a shot if you can send it back.
>>
>>79681314

IKEA Järvfjället is KINO. Best programming/business chair. I have two.
>>
>>79681319
>Steelcase caring about ikea chairs

Big yikes.
>>
>>79681547
>I have two.
Same, unironically. White and black.
>>
If you're willing to buy used, I'd reccomend the Steelcase Leap V2 if you find it for the right price. I got it for around the price of the Jarv and find it much more comfortable. It's way more adjustable too
>>
>>79681369
Markus is the worst chair I've ever sat on and believe me I sat on some cheap shitty chairs. I can't comprehend how anyone can find it neutral, let alone comfortable, when it pushes your head forward with its back.
>>
I have a Järvfjället. Its great chair because its comfy, you can lean back a lot, and the hand rests are removable which is great for sim racing.

I picked up a second hand leap v2 and a new gesture after trying two Autonomous chairs that were both terrible. Super happy with the gesture especially. I've also heard herman miller aeron and embody and haworth fern are good buys
>>
>>79681314
That's the exact chair I have, it's comfortable even after a long coding session. Would recommend.
>>
>>79681314
Why the hell would you ask for recommendations for a chair? Go to a store like Staples, and sit in their chairs to find the one that fits you the best.
>>
>>79681314
I got one few days ago
It's not as adjustable as I thought it would be but still, you shouldn't find it too hard to get yourself comfortable in it
>>
I have a Järvfjället but in cloth. Anyone know how to clean it?

Had one for a few years now. It is comfy and if you keep a good posture nothing will hurt, but for me keeping a good posture is hard and if I'm on a "relaxed" position usually I'll start noticing discomfort, usually in the ass or the back.

For the price it is ok. Good in the summer too, if you live in a hot area.

If I had to buy one now, I'll probably go for the HATTEFJÄLL.

How adjustable is it? Does it lean back far?
>>
People keep saying to buy a used, high-quality office chair. How the fuck am I supposed to find the good used ones near me?
>>
>>79683737
Leaning is probably the most restricted, you can't just put it 90 degrees down, but that's fine
I don't know the numbers but imagine leaning a bit further than you would on an average couch, it's pretty relaxing, especially if you have something to put your feet on
>>
>>79683861
Pretty useful then
How about the armrests? Kind of put off that they're just plastic instead of padded
>>
>>79681314
if you want to kill your back the get the markus or that one in your pic
>>
What are my options in the £300-500 range? I'm willing to spend more than Ikea money, but not willing to fess up for Herman Miller/Humanscale.

That said... there Herman Miller Sayl is right at the top end of my budget, but I dunno.
>>
>>79683877
The plastic flexes a bit so it's not as bad as if it was rigid
I'm fine when I place my forearms on them for a longer period of time but my elbows start aching pretty quickly, so finding the right position can be a bit tricky
>>

You can try looking for a local office supply or office furniture dealer. Many of them resale used office furniture or may even have sample chairs that are no longer in production. Worth a check. Most are willing to sell to anyone with cash on hand. Just know your prices because they will fuck you over if they think they can.
>>
Should I get the gesture with or without headrest?
>>
>>79684270
not true
>>
>>79685907
How tall are you? I'm >>79682378 and am 5'10"ish. Any taller than 6" and it may be uncomfortable with the headrest, though I haven't actually tried one with it
>>
>>79681314
I live in the middle of bumfuck nowhere so its hard for me to try chairs.

What's a good chair with nice amount of ass space. Assume I'm a fatass, tho the truth is I just like putting up my feet on the chair or leaning way back. Although I'm not sure what's worse to say

What's the ideal body height for peak chair sitting performance? Too short and your feet can't reach the floor properly. Too tall and your spine gets murdered by backrests that aren't shaped for you. Where is the goldilocks zone?

If you're buying new anyway then go for the headrest. I bought mine "new in box" from eBay for $600 though as it was basically impossible to find a second hand gesture with headrest.
>>
>>79683975
I have a Herman Miller Setu and love it. Classy, clean looks. Its mesh makes ass-sweat a non issue. I initially bought one a few years ago because my company has them in some of their conference rooms and they're awesome. I've used Aerons at work too but don't like them as much as the Setu because they're uglier, more expensive, and have too much fidgety shit on them (adjustable everything).

With COVID, I bought another one for my wife to work from home comfortably too.

Gamer chairs are garbage. The philosophy behind them is just to take a normal ass chair and put a shitload of padding everywhere.

>>79687717
I have Recaro seats in my car. They're very comfortable for driving, however I wouldn't want one adapted for a computer chair. I don't sit at my computer like I do in my car. That's just dumb.

used herman miller aeron from an office liquidation. it doesn't get any better than that in terms of value.
>>
>>79681314
I have Järvfjället.
Well, it's IKEA. Cheap and unreliable.
I guess it's worth it's price, but if your budget allows something better, see other variants.
The head pad is not, hand pads are easy to get scratched. When you put the chair up, it "sinks" a bit when you sit on it. The tilt mechanism is sensitive to the vertical position. Tilt fixation is unreliable. The back pad is kinda strange, don't like it.

The problem is that the areon has hard as fuck lip on the edge of the seat that leads to poor posture or cutting off circulation. No, I am not fat, its really easy for skinny people to cut off circulation.

i have one
the fabric is not great quality (friction on the seat especially is pretty low, so its somewhat slippery), and the seat doesnt tilt with the backrest, nor does it have padded arm-rests
i'd recommend the faux leather Markus instead, had it for 11 years prior to this Järvfjället and it was more comfortable with better friction on the seat, padded arm rests, tilting seat

reminder that people like >>79681405 are 5'6" or/and obese goblinos that feel uncomfortable in a chair designed by nordic chads for an average European. Yes if you're some abhorrent freak of nature you need highly customizable chairs, IKEA ones are indeed more generic but they are not of inferior quality, I mean they're fucking office chairs, what do you think cost a 1000 bucks on five pieces of plastic and a leather cover? Nothing, other cair manufacturers just can't compete with IKEA's volume so they jack up the price and target more niche audiences like gamers and manlets
