Today, I’m sad to report that my beloved Herman Miller Aeon Chair finally gave up its seat — and its mesh back and its crippled casters and it decaying rubber arms — and I had to trash it after eight, magnificent, years of dutiful sitting service.
I was on the hunt for a new office chair. The replacement had to be hardy and tough and a good value. I spend 12 hours a day in and out of my office chair, so I needed to make certain the task of sitting would not interfere with my joy of writing.
When I happened upon a Staples chair exclusive with a mouthful of a name — the Tempur-Pedic TP8000 Ergonomic Mesh Mid-Back Task Chair — and I knew I’d found my new office chair at a great value.
