Do you work from home? Do you work in a place where you put your workspace together?
I need a formal office, with a good desk and chair, in our palace; some place to shut the door and tell everybody (wife, kids, dog, the servants, butlers and groundskeepers) to leave me the gently caress alone.
I've been reading up on ergonomic/comfortable furniture and I understand that the Aeron chair by Herman Miller is fantastic and just under $1000.
A THOUSAND DOLLARS.
Most reviews I've read say that it's worth firing a couple of butlers to get that chair. I'll work on that..
What about desks?
Does anyone use the adjustable desks, that go from seated to standing height? I think that would be beneficial as well, and I could get one of our handymen to build one, but before they go to all that work, can anyone recommend a decent one?

Or, are you one of those bohemians who insist that a metal folding chair and a card table are all you need?
For reference, I'm currently sitting at my great-grandfathers rolltop desk which was built for very skinny right-handed people, sitting in an office chair I nicked from work almost 15 years ago. My logic there is that, an expensive office chair, even a 15-year-old one, is better than a dining room chair.
What about you? Tell me where you put your fat rear end to make fat stacks of cash.

Who uses desks? I hold my laptop with one hand and design with the other, while riding my longboard to Starbucks.
... but seriously.
I took the cheapo route on the Aeron chair, opting for a (used) discontinued lookalike from Staples that had high ratings (The Vayder). I couldn't find any reason why it was discontinued, but I like to think it's because they ripped off the $1000 design of Aeron. I could be wrong.
It's way more comfortable, but I still can't get it to sit up completely straight. I always end up slouched back a little bit.
Yes - the guy I bought it from said that Staples rolled this one out when they discontinued the Vayder. So, sure. Maybe that's the reason.
Chair: The Steelcase Leap is a super-comfortable ergonomic chair that runs in the vicinity of $550-800 depending on model / add-ons.
