Office chairs… again

Have to write about office-chairs again. It was a long process to find what I wanted which was comfortable and had a reasonable price. I finally decided what to get, ordered it and have even paid for it. Delivery is mid-July, so there is a long wait.

Yesterday I passed IKEA. I discarded all office-chairs at Ikea at an early stage for various reasons. Except one that was really comfortable but only available in some ugly pattern or in a plastic-like fake leather. I didn’t want that. That particular chair, SKRUVSTA, has now arrived with new covers. There is a grey one and one with a wildly colorful pattern and a white one. Well, the white is not new, but that is that fake-leather with a plastic feel.

The wildly pattern one might be fun, but I would tire of it in a couple of days. The grey one though…

If I hadn’t already ordered and paid for the office-chair I decided on, the grey one above would be just fine. Adjustable height, wheels, and comfortable to sit in (material not itchy). Price a third of the price for the one I ordered.

I’ll throw out my old office-chair mid May when we have cleaning days where I live. That includes one big container to throw away bigger things like furniture and other stuff (except electronics and electric things), and one container for garden debris.

I really need to get rid of the old. It is falling apart. I suspect that my elbow-troubles (very sore elbows, unable to do certain exercises at the gym that involves hanging on your elbows, doing the “plank”) comes from these armrests. See image…

As the new chair won’t arrive until mid July I’ll sit on something else between mid May and mid July.
