In light of all the changes to the way we do business, I’ve decided to start a blog. This gives me a personal way to work out some of my thoughts about how we have been impacted, but also allows me to share stories with you from other designers who are coming up with unique and effective solutions in a changing world.
Please check back regularly, and feel free to share your thoughts and opinions as well. Let’s work together to get through this!
As I sit at my desk for what seems like an endless number of hours each day, I’m keenly aware of how much my back (and backside) is killing me when I stand up. Although my adorable bunny chair is fun to look at, it is lacking in the comfortable-to-sit-in department. Of course, this got me thinking about how many other people were experiencing the same problem. I suspect many! This of course is a great opportunity to educate you on WHY exactly your back (and backside) is killing you when you stand up and how the pain can be alleviated by knowing how and what to look for when selecting a desk chair.
First, as a girl who appreciates style above everything else, its imperative to find a style that suits you. Are you a classic desk chair type of person that prefers the Herman Miller brand or someone that appreciates the more handcrafted style of Hancock & Moore? Fun fact: did you know that Hancock & Moore executive desk chairs have sat behind the presidents’ desk in the Oval Office for the last four administrations? A Made-In-America product for the leader of the USA. Pretty cool!
Second, the reason your back (and backside) hurts is because you aren’t supported properly when seated in your desk chair. This is because the seat itself is most likely constructed of cardboard and Styrofoam or like mine, wood. The Hancock & Moore executive desk chair in leather features a QUALUX SEAT CUSHION. The Qualux seat utilizes a high-density urethane foam wrapped in a premium polyester fiber that creates a supportive yet comfortable sit. The core unit is encased in a sewn jacket which accents the superior tailoring and sit of the cushion. Not only are you fully supported when seated in the chair, you’ll notice the difference upon standing after toiling away the hours at your desk. Additionally, Hancock & Moore excellent craftsmanship is superior to none and made right here in the good ole’ U.S. of A. As my Dad used to say, “how bout them apples!”
Lastly, quality construction is about more than just the seat itself but also about the angle and pitch as well. Who knew there was so much to consider?! Most desk chairs will have a swivel and tilt option making it even easier to accommodate your movements throughout the day. You know that feeling you get when you sit on a piece of furniture and it feels like you’re floating on a cloud? That’s the feeling you should get when you sit in your desk chair too.
