Oops! Crash…..

Here’s the thing. The office / desk chair that has served me faithfully lo these 14 years has, um, self destructed. With a little help from me. The left arm sort of collapsed outward with a very loud CRACK! noise and the whole assembly has settled like a sinking ship.

It was a good chair, a nice chair, and I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in it as I increase time at the computer with this and other blogs, plus the desk work, writing, cataloging and general fooling about in the computer and at the desk.

So today Wife and I met at lunch time to shop for a replacement, and we got a dandy from the local Relax the Back store, which just happened to be having a sale, and just happened to be giving an extra 20% off the sale price for floor models, one of which was exactly what we wanted.

The picture is just like the one we got except ours is in dark brown leather, not this reddish-cordovan shade. This chair is probably better than we needed, but it’s so comfortable and has so many great ergonomic features, beautiful leather and at that price, we couldn’t resist.

The new chair will arrive Friday. I can hardly wait!

Blogging may be a bit delayed until it’s arrival…

    That thing has as many controls as the flight deck chairs on the Enterprise.

  2. Richard says:

    But, sadly, no phaser controls.

    Congrats! That has so many levers underneath you won’t know what to do. Looks comfortable.

  4. Richard says:

    It is, or at least it sure felt that way in the store. The old chair was great too, and though it wasn’t leather it had most of these same controls (up/down, back/forward, lumbar, seat angle, adjustable arms. This is far more high-end, but we decided to splurge. I spend a good deal of time in the computer-desk chair these days so it pays to have a good one.

    We have that store nearby and I’ve always been tempted to go inside. But since I type on the edge of the chair, it seems useless to buy a good one. It looks lovely though.

  6. Richard says:

    You wouldn’t type on the edge of the chair if you had MY back, Patti, though I do tend to lean forward, which is about as bad.

    I’ve been eyeing a new computer chair, too, Rick. The one I like is actually made by Sealy (the folks that make the mattresses). The chair is called a Sealy Posturepedic computer chair. Like you, I want good back support.

    Congrats! That looks like a great chair. I need to invest in a much better chair for my desk one of these days.
