Yo guys. So, I need a chair for my setup. My current chair is one of those old, raunchy, grey fabric $13 specials that have no armrests and no adjustment aside from backrest slider, and backrest up/down.
It’s also incredibly small, and generally uncomfortable due to age, cheapness, and wearing out. My desk has a similar problem with its cramped layout, but that will require a custom solution for my goals.
Anyway, as far as the chair goes, I want it to be VERY comfortable for long stretches, particularly of movie watching. I also don’t care for the meshy, office look, so I’ll be wanting an ‘executive’ style chair, as I’ve recently learned.
Adjustments I want are tilt/lean lock (so I can lock it back, or slightly back), seat pan depth (if possible given the chair style I want), and flip up armrests, if not ones that can be adjusted in some way to clear the desk edge.
It also has to be a high load chair for my fat ass(300lbs) and I want it to last at least 7 or 8 years solid, so a really high-quality chair is a definite plus. No tearing or flaking of the surface material, seat pad sagging, etc.
I want a high back chair, preferably with a headrest. I also want it to have a pretty tall seat height level on the adjustment range. Like, 30-35 inches, if possible with all of the other prerequisites.
If not, I will just make my PC desk and workbench (for ‘drones’, PC building, etc.) two different heights. ((I wanted them combined as one surface for cleanliness of lines in my room and continuity, but I can sacrifice this for chair ergos.))
Budget is $400 absolute max, preferably $300 or less.
