Hi guys, apologies if wrong thread the last one I could find was back in 2018. I am looking for recommendations for a high back office chair budget up to $ 400 if that’s possible. I have looked at wharehouse stationery , office max, pb tech and came across Dobbins furniture. Office max has some good ones but says will deliver after covid lockdown .Wharehouse stationary  has mixed reviews. I came across this one from Dobbins which has ten year warranty and good weight range has anyone had any experiences with them ? or any other good recommendations?

I have a Studio 3.40 office chair I got at Officemax somewhere between 5 and 12 years ago. It's still solid and comfortable, better than most of the chairs at work.

If in Auckland I recommend checking out Allheart (https://allheartnz.org.nz/)

 

They are a charity which takes and resells old corporate furniture and equipment.

 

I got a second hand Haworth Zody chair for $200 from these guys - thats a $1,500 chair new.

 

I am not affiliated, but had good experiences and got some great deals. They have a trademe store which lists a lot of their products so you can see what they have before you go.

I have this one, it's excellent.  Spend a bit more than you've budgeted, you'll thank yourself in 6 months.  It's about $700 with arms

We have a few of these, I spent around 14 hours a day in one (one at home and one at the office) and they are very comfortable.

 

I paid I think $170 each for them on special.

 

The arms covering do tend to wear down and I spent $80 getting ChairDoc to resurface them in the end. Was money well spent.

You'll be lucky to get anything until we leave lockdown. Maybe at the warehouse?

I use the Buro Roma - 3 Lever Mid Back from Buro Seating. They have a Buro Roma - 3 Lever High Back version as well.

 

  • good comfort, even for extended periods of sitting
  • seat angle adjustable
  • large sitting surface
  • 160kg weight rating

Their "where to buy" page lists many Office Stationary locations, but also other retailers.

Watch your carpet with wheeled chairs on domestic carpets. If the pile is long they will get stuck in the wheels and ripped out, and short ones will still get crushed. I would also suggest getting a mat to go under it.
