I still love my Embody. Yes it was expensive, but honestly it should last me 12+ years. If you can get a used Aeron, Leap, or similar task chair, I'd go that route. But I wouldn't buy a new Aeron personally. I keep my Aeron for my 'modding desk' and it really is a huge step down from the Embody. So i'd definitely spend the extra to get an Embody if buying new.

Herman Miller sales are bi-annual. One in the beginning of May and then in late November.

Yeah I'm thinking I'll do an Embody too... you said the arms ended up being fine? They look so widespread in the photos. No issues with heat/sweat either?

At full width the arms are the same far apart as a 'B' aeron but they can go crazy narrow.

Not sure about heat yet but I'm sure it will be warmer than my Aeron. Especially w/ the mercer material I chose, it doesn't look very breathable. The other two fabrics probably would be a better choice there.

bloody 'ell! An Embody is $1640 USD! I'd can't afford a chair even half that...


this is the chair I have my eye on right now...

That's kind of high, there's a store here in Toronto area that's selling the "base" Embody (all black) for $1275. I emailed another store on the weekend though and waiting to hear back, they supposedly have the lowest prices typically.
