Last week in this post I mentioned that I had moved the chair from the office desk. I addition to the arms banging the desk I did not mention that the finish of the upholstery was all cracking a flaking. The wear on the front edge of the seat was so bad that I had previously made an elasticised fabric cover for the seat and I noticed that the back was showing the same tendencies.
It was definitely time for the chair to go. I was not hopeful of finding a new home for it but placed an ad on the local Facebook Buy, Swap, Sell page give it away. Happily, it was just what someone wanted so it has gone.
The dining chair was not a suitable long-term replacement so yesterday we looked for a replacement at Officeworks.
We were a bit like Goldilocks trying out all of the various options which ranged from very lightweight and uncomfortable to positively luxurious and everything in between. In the end this is what we chose. It is sturdy, comfortable and relatively compact.
It fits neatly under the desk and I am very happy with our new chair.
Love the chair, need to get new chairs for both of my boys as the ones I bought them for Christmas 4 years ago have had all the fake leather flake off and it is pretty gross. I got them from officeworks, they are the bathurst racer chair and they do love them but I think a fabric one would be much better – can you tell me what the chair name is please so I can go and have a look.
Lynda – the Bathurst Racer was what we had. The new one is also from Officeworks – here is a link. http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/matrix-mesh-deluxe-chair-pamatxmebk
