Going to be buying a new chair (and desk but I got that picked out). Thinking about buying this :

My mom knows the owner of that place so we might be able to get it for even cheaper (or a better one for cheaper).

Anyone know of any good places to get office chairs (In Canada, obviously).

It's just a damn chair, go to some cheap furniture place, try a few out, pick the cheapest you like.

Honestly that looks the same to me as the 50 dollar chairs at Wal-Mart minus the woodgrain look. You can find better for cheaper.

NEVER get a leather or fake leather chair. Get an executive styled mesh and fabric chair, one with adjustable arms. Your back won't get all hot and shit, you won't get hot thighs etc..

I'm not fat, but I work in IT and I can't stand some of the faux leather shit chairs you get foisted into...

MESH + FABRIC = best choice.

That site has one but it's ridiculously overpriced -

I am sitting in one that is almost identical to this but I found it for like $215.00 or something. Trust me you DO NOT WANT some shit leather or fake leather chair.

Thanks for that info. I have seen a few of those mesh ones on other sites but they looked weird to me and I didn't know if it would be comfortable or not.

I wouldn't even go near that thing. It reminds me of "IT", I swear if you sit in that thing a "joystick" will spring up in your rear.

Here's a much cheaper mesh/fabric one (http://ergonomic-chairs.officechairs.com/Mesh-Back-Task-Chair-with-Fabric-Seat-CH02645.aspx). It's the first one I found, but I'm sure there are better ones.
