The Saga of the Chair, Part Two

  • April 10, 2017

Almost two years ago, I wrote about my search for a replacement desk chair. I thought the search was over but the replacement…sucks. It looked like my old chair but the seat cushion flattened and the back doesn’t let me settle into it like the old one did. I lived in that chair. So I’m off to search once again. Here’s my requirements:

  1. The chair must be synthetic. I prefer fabric but fake leather would be acceptable.
  2. The chair must be a mid to low back. High backs annoy me.
  3. It must cost less than my rent.

How hard could that be, right? Apparently high backs are in style with leather and some price tags have made me gasp.

Any suggestions?

    I hear you loud and clear. The Chair is probably one of the most important elements of a writer’s life, besides the Desk.

    I went through this last Fall and I just went to store after store and sat in chairs until I found The One at Staples.

    Good luck!

      Thanks! A friend just recommended a store and after the holidays I’ll take a trip and check them out. Here’s hoping!
