Every great society has their own take on what we today call the task chair. These chairs reflect what was done in them. Ancient Roman potters, for example, had a bench below their potter's wheel to give their feet room to push the pedal that spun the wheel's mechanism.
I could go on forever about the history of chairs, but let's jump ahead to the '60s. As office jobs become more popular, chair manufacturers discovered that they could focus their designs entirely on comfort.
If you've spent your life using your computer from the "comfort" of a $30 task chair, then you haven't experienced the product of thousands of years of ergonomic design. Out of all of the things that you might have in your home office, the value of your chair is the most easily quantifiable.
Today's deals bring you the most current task chair and TV on the market.
Office Star Black Breathable Mesh Chair - $389.99 ($995.00)
While mesh chairs may not be as imposing as a high-backed, leather executive chair, they're a blessing for us Arizonans. The mesh means that the chair stays breathable, while leather chairs might as well be radiators during the summer months.
The best task chairs are modular, because everyone's shaped differently. This chair looks to have most of the knobs and sliders that will allow you to customize it to fit you best.
