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!
