As someone who spends his days writing about technology and computers, people are always surprised when I say computer chairs are one of the most important components of any office setup. I think they’re expecting me to say the latest MacBook Pro and a big external monitor are what they should be concentrating on, or a wireless color laser printer. Chairs may not have the glamour of the latest and greatest computer gadgets, but they can be every bit as important to your productivity, and computer chairs can certainly contribute more to your personal health than a computer will.
I work from a home office set up in my flat and I’d been guilty of using the wrong chair for years. Don’t get me wrong, as far as chairs go it certainly looked nice and it wasn’t inexpensive, but it wasn’t designed for someone to sit in eight hours a day. Which I found out when I sat down to write a new book and began to experience back aches. That’s when I started researching computer chairs and discovered Chairsupermarket.co.uk, the best store (brick and mortar, or online) for chairs that I have ever seen.
Chairsupermarket.co.uk claims to be the UK’s leading chair store, and with hundreds of different chairs available in a huge range of styles and purposes, I tend to agree with their assessment. The nice thing is that Chairsupermarket.co.uk carries chairs that fall within a wide range of budgets. Someone who needs to equip a small office with reasonably priced, but well designed computer chairs can do so for as little a £30.00 apiece. Those who are interested in the top of the line ergonomic chairs we see executives using in commercials and movies will be pleasantly surprised. I love that type of chair, and everything I’ve read (and tried out in different showrooms) suggested that a high end ergonomic chair was my best bet.
I was grudgingly prepared to spend a thousand pounds on a premium chair, when I found the Ergohuman section at Chairsupermarket.co.uk. They are selling top of the line Ergohuman computer chairs with mesh back, leather base, lumbar support, pneumatic height adjustment, synchro tilt, multidimensional adjustable armrests, personalized headrest adjustment and eight hour use rating. I fell in love -these chairs are beautiful. Believe it or not, I picked one up from Chairsupermarket.co.uk for £359.99, half of the retail price! Because the site is UK based, there was no fussing with currency exchange and they delivered my new chair the next day. Now my office is lacking nothing and I’m productive and comfortable.
