Due to COVID-19, I have been working from home for the past few weeks. Fortunately, I have a nice office setup with a standing desk. I usually stand in the morning and sit in the afternoon. This gives me a good balance which is recommended when using a standing desk.
I quickly noticed that my office chair was not as good as the one I have at work. I realized it was 6 years old and time for an upgrade. The first resource I checked was Wirecutter. They recommended Steelcase and Herman Miller as their top choices but I decided I didn’t want to spend that much on a chair. Their budget choice was a company called Hon which was around $250. I could justify digging into my savings account for that, provided it was a decent chair. I researched the company and found the HON Ignition 2.0 which had good reviews. I decided to give it a try. Speaking of savings, I essentially used the interest accumulated to purchase the chair. You can compare savings accounts to find one that makes your money work for you since most versions offered at standard banking institutions offer very low rates of returns.
Overall I’ve been impressed with the chair. The assembly was a breeze and I had it put together in a few minutes. If you are looking for a $200-300 chair, I think the HON Ignition 2.0 is a good choice.
What office chair do you use?
