Have You Told Santa Your Back Hurts?

An ergonomic chair for your home office could be the perfect Christmas gift for you or your loved ones.
December 1, 2020

As we head into the holidays, let’s take a moment to reflect on the drastic changes we’ve all faced this year. Specifically, most American’s day at work. We have witnessed the recent transition to remote work across various industries effecting millions of people. Many employees & business owners had to figure out a makeshift work station with the mentality that this would be a temporary solution. But eleven months after COVID-19 first arrived in the US, businesses continue to encourage remote work for the majority of their employees. With no end in sight to this trend, there is no better time than now to invest in a quality ergonomic chair for your home office & we are positioned to provide the highest level of service in assisting you & your team with the ideal office chair.

Excessive sitting has been linked to more than two dozen chronic diseases and conditions including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, back pain, ankle swelling, and deep vein thrombosis with nearly 80% of American’s complaining about back pain. There have even been studies showing a bad chair can negatively affect your mood & even cause digestive problems. The makeshift office chair you’re using right now could be causing serious long term damage to your health. It’s time for an upgrade.

Ergonomic seating solutions can minimize healthcare costs for your employees while simultaneously increasing productivity by properly supporting the back and encouraging healthy posture. Herman Miller’s performance seating collection is designed to respond to your body’s every move to let you focus on the task at hand. The chairs are backed by decades of ergonomic research, experimentation, and analysis and designed for your comfort, from the 9-to-5 and beyond. 115 years of expertise comes together for high design and superior comfort. With the continuing evolution of the home work place, your office chair needs to be able to do it all. It needs to double as a spot for long conference calls as well as a spot for the kids to crawl up in your lap for story time. Some of us are studying, some are teaching, some are running a creative studio. No matter the remote task at hand, Herman Miller has a chair for everyone and everybody.
