One of the perks of working for a large office furniture provider is that we get to sample some pretty cool products. In fact, the offices where we do our day-to-day work double as showrooms. Every once in a while, one of our sales consultants will bring a customer by to see our desks or to try out one of our chairs.
I thought it would be fun to have some of our employees share their experiences with the chairs they use every day. Our first great chair is one used by Mickey Spahic, Senior Inside Salesperson in our Los Angeles office, and also used by Rebecca Jacobs, Manager of Marketing Creative and Communications in our Milwaukee headquarters.

Mickey’s been using his chair for two years. He appreciates the Nightingale because it’s one of the most ergonomic chairs we offer. “I’m a very fidgety person, so I’m always moving around in my chair,” he said.
Mickey likes the seat depth of the chair and the seat slider function the best. “It makes the back of my legs feel just right. Before this chair, my legs were constantly sore. None of the other chairs I tried alleviated the pain until I sat in this one.”
“I wouldn’t use any other chair!” Mickey said.

Rebecca has been using her chair for several years. “It has Enersorb memory foam in the seat, and nine adjustments,” she said. “I sit at my desk for long hours. When I am working, I am typically very sedentary. I don’t reach or move much. The Nightingale is billed as the most comfortable chair, ever, and that’s what I think it is. It’s just great!”
Rebecca had problems with other chairs in the past; she experienced a lot of back pain, and her legs would fall asleep. “With this chair, I have neither. I can sit for hours without issues.”
Rebecca’s experience with chairs over time has helped her appreciate what a well-designed ergonomic chair can do. “I would tell anyone who has pain in their back or legs to take a good look at their chair. I used to sit on whatever chair was available and not think anything of it. As I got older, I started noticing the effects my poor-quality chairs were having on my well-being. Ten years ago I would never have considered paying so much for an office chair, but now I truly understand what a great investment it is.”
