There are several parts that go into it, but we believe the basis of a good ergonomic set up comes down to one thing: your task chair. The truth is that a good, adjustable task chair can get you most of the way to a great-fitting workspace.

Why you should invest in a new home office chair NOW

Remember March? It was going to be such a fun month. The Illini were going to make a long run in the tournament. Opening day for the Cards and Cubs was just around the corner. We were going to drink green beer in a crowded bar full of strangers. Ah, the good ol’ days. Next thing you knew, you were working from home from your dining room table. Maybe you borrowed a couple pillows from your living room to make those oak dining chairs more comfortable (why are there 18 pillows on your sofa anyway?). Maybe you just struggled through it. Or maybe you even bought an inexpensive chair from a big box. Regardless of how you’ve been coping with your seating situation so far, here are some reasons why now might be a good time to consider investing in a new home office chair.
