If you'd like a softer chair, you can add a layer of N'Dulgent memory foam to the seat cushion or the entire chair. We highly recommend this option because it further reduces seated pressure on your hips and back.
Choose the arms that best match your daily habits, tasks, needs and posture changes.
Build your Neutral Posture chair to fits your needs completely. Order either of these accessories in the accessory tab.
Neutral Posture Nextep
The Nextep is a wide, stable platform that fully supports the feet and legs. It's perfect for drafting height chairs. The step can hold up to 400 lbs and is both depth and height adjustable. It will fit over existing footrings and most other stools. Use more than one to create a "staircase" to your seat.
The Fring rests on your chair base, allowing you to rest your feet and maintain a healthy, open ankle position.
These custom built chairs can take up to 4 weeks before shipping to you. Call us and ask which fabrics are quick-ship options if you'd like your chair to ship in about a week. Since monitors display colors differently, feel free to request swatches if getting a precise color is important to you; we provide swatches as a free service.
Customize your chair with detail stitching. This option is available with Ultraleather or Leather and 4, 5, 6 and 7 seat pans. Contact us for pricing.

Finally a chair my size!
August 18, 2014
For context, I am just under 5'2", 115 lbs and, proportionally, very short legged. I work in software: often for over 60 hours a week. I have chronic back and neck pain from sitting cross-legged because my feet don't touch the ground properly and without using the armrests because they are uncomfortably far from the seat. It's enough of a problem that I am in physical therapy because of it (folks, this is what happens when you ignore an uncomfortable chair for too long!). Between chairs I have bought, and those my employer has, I have tried five other high-end, supposedly petite-person-friendly chairs and none of them fit. This one does! This is what the rest of the world experiences when they sit in an office chair. It's very comfortable. Who knew? Specifics: 1. Shallow seat depth. This is critical. You can always use a footrest to compensate for a high seat height, but that does you no good if the seat hits you below your knees so they don't bend properly-and trying to pile up pillows behind you so that your legs reach the end of the seat defeats the purpose of any ergonomic back the chair came equipped with. 2. Low seat height. Adjustable down to 15" (14.5" would be nice but oh well) 3. Arms can be brought closer to the chair (the width can be narrowed) so that you can use the arm rests properly. If needed you could bring them in so close that it would be hard for me to get into the seat. 4. Attached footrest. It's at the perfect height but not so comfortable if you don't wear shoes while working. 5. Backrest encourages good posture. Every chair claims this. This is the first one that's succeeded with me. It has a comfortable vertical bulge in the middle of the backrest (I have the high one). I was dubious when I looked at it but I've discovered that it encourages me to roll my shoulders back rather than to slump with them forward. Long story short: If you are a petite woman who spends a lot of time at a desk, you need this chair! It is worth the investment. And it's cheaper than physical therapy ;)

I bought this chair as a gift for my mom. She sits a lot at work and chairs never fit her right. She needed a very comfortable chair for a petite woman. This chair fits her so well it is as if it was custom made. Her back stopped hurting.
