Helping my sister get her home office in shape. Her chair budget is about $350.
She likes this, but it doesn't look very comfortable, gonna check it out this evening.
I figure, who better to ask than a bunch of folks who sit on their asses all day?

I could get you about 10 chairs for that price.
hmm i dont know much about chairs... but some gentlemen here probably would need to know more about your sisters posture so they can advice adequately...
that's a lot of money for a chair...
^ not a lot of money for a chair....I'm 37 and my back needs a good one
You could get the SAYL chair, it runs about $399.
It's a copy, but for $350 that aint bad. There's one in Culver City at HD Buttercup next to Room and Board. The real chair is like $2000.
- it does look nice, but it doesn't look like it was designed for long days of sittingMiguex
- but I'm judging on looks only thoughMiguex
- I got a copy of this for $120 in Toronto... it's greatJulesvm
- This is an aluminum group copy. The real ones are super comfy. A knockoff is likely crap.antagonista
- I sat in both, eames and copy. I thought it would be harsh... but the lumbar support is great. and the design of the arm rests and cloth is very comfy.nthkl
- leather seat was surprisingly ergonomically comfy. It's just good design. I was perplexed, then I saw the price tag.nthkl
- i have a high-backed chair like this, a copy it was like $250 or something, it's fine for sitting in for long periods of time.cuke426
- i would also recommend getting an aeron if you're fulltime doing thiscuke426
If you're serious aout a decent chair you have to get closer to 500$. You can buy a cheap one, but it will break. Trust me.
My friend bought an eames AG knockoff and it gave his skin a rash when he wore shorts on it. Then it broker in less than a year.
You get what you pay for, better to invest in quality up front. Chairs are like mattresses: why would you go so cheap on something you spend so much time in? Better off buying a cheap desk and a better chair.
Definitely avoid anything from crap & barrel or ikea. Go for a used herman miller or eames if you have to.

I think you are a bit dramatic
I've been siting on a $45 chair for the last 4 years man.
It's not going the best chair ever, but it does the job.
When I buy my next one, I would probably for something with better looks, but $500 is a bit extreme for me. But then again I'm poor.
I try to go used, eBay, Craigslist, this isn't the most comfortable, but for the price/style.
Check out office companies going out of business too, I found an office here in Raleigh, NC that was forced to liquidate their assets due to bankruptcy, got an Aeron for $125.00.
Source and or brand?
