They don't seem to have any Aerons in stock at the moment but it might be worth contacting this company: https://www.2ndhnd.com. I bought a Humanscale chair from them a few years ago after a recommendation on here.

I knew this thread would be the Aeron thread before I even clicked it. Don’t fall for it, they’re, ‘old tech’. Get a Humanscale chair, or Steelcase Gesture if you can find one.

I've tried most popular expensive chairs but still prefer the Aeron. Mesh >>>>>>

Fuck you you fucking retard. Have you ever sat in a fucking Aeron? There's something called a classic, Aeron is one, always will be. New doesn't mean better you fucking idiot.

I have one of these which I find very comfortable, good support. It seemed like new when I got it, very good condition.

Might be a classic but it's kinda ugly, to be honest.

I got my HM sayl chairs two days ago, also managed to get discount buying 4. Once adjusted they feel great and I particularly like the back support. I'm 6'2" tall and it doesn't feel narrow as some reviews have suggested.

The prices on that site are incredible! Thanks for the link. Been wanting a new chair for weeks now, but put off not being able to test them. At the prices on there its worth a blind buy though!

Offered them 20% less than the asking price for 2 chairs and they accepted in minutes so well worth making an offer too!

Missus and I upgraded our WFH chairs (from Hay result chair and Vitra DSR) to a couple of Herman Millers:

Got 2 giroflex g64's. Very good for the money imo, think retail was something stupid like £600, but at just over £100 they're a bargain.
