I would recommend this item to a friend.

Replaced an Aeron chair with this and love it!
May 17, 2016
I have had an Aeron chair in my home office for 16 years and have sat it in it every day, from 2 hours to 14. That's a great testimonial to it's quality and durability. However, over the past year I have had issues with "mouse arm" resulting in tendonitis and rotator cuff injury and a sore lower back to boot - all from bad ergonomics. My Aeron chair, perhaps due to a bad cylinder, was too low, but 16 years was enough and I wanted something new. Meanwhile I got a new chair at work. It didn't look like much, but I could not help noticing how great it felt and that, in contrast to home, I felt so much better at work. As I started my shopping research, I noticed quite a few super fancy chairs like the Aeron, but then took a closer look at my work chair - it was a Steelcase Amia! While the Human Solutions rep on the phone seemed to push me to a Leap, the reviews were a little mixed, the cost difference significant, and even Human Solutions has a published write up, from the CEO, comparing the two with a slight nod to the Amia. So I ordered it, but it is a little bit fancier than my work chair including the option for more height adjustment, platinum frame and an upgrade in fabric (Cogent). Within minutes of using this at home I felt relief due to better options in adjustment and positioning. Maybe I would like the Leap too, but since I already knew I liked this chair, why not go with it? Some of you may be tempted in thinking a great chair has to look super cool and, like the Aeron, be a candidate for a museum piece of innovative industrial design (that's where my head was at), but please try to step back and think about what is most important - your comfort. With a 30 day no charge and no shipping return policy on Steelcase, this chair should be near the top of the list of things to try.
Adjustment options and simplicity (I still don't fully understand my Aeron adjustments after 16 years!!!) Simple clean look Comfort Swivels like a dream - smooth as silk Cost, though this is relative compared to $1000+ plus chairs
Perhaps some concern about the long term durability of the fabric and arm padding, but I could be wrong. Arm rests could be a little longer, but this is a quibble

Awesome Chair!
August 14, 2014
I LOVE THIS CHAIR! I work from home and had been using a mid-level office chair from Staples. I was always reluctant to spend the money on a true ergonomic chair. I finally pulled the trigger and I am so glad that I did. You definitely get what you pay for. This Amia chair is awesome and I wish I would have bought it sooner. I am comfortable and definitely seated in a better position at my desk.

First chair in my life that is this comfortable for me
April 28, 2014
I am petite and in my late 60's. How I wish I had come across this Amia chair before! There are no words to express the comfort this chair has provided for me since I bought it. I highly recommend it. Great company to work with too, when I called they were very helpful.

Steelcase Amia Chair
February 24, 2014
I am loving this chair. I am in my chair 75% of the day. The other staff members are hoping to get new chairs now that this one has arrived. I find I still need a footrest in order to get in to a good ergonomic position with my desk, chair and floor. I love the back position, the arm position and the seat. So excited I didn't have to put it together as well! I am very happy with this purchase.

not small enough for the very small under 5' tall person
February 7, 2013
I am very disappointed in the seat depth and chair height adjustment--I am 4'10" and have chronic low back issues from sitting in chairs that are too big for me, which is why I ordered this chair. I can't put my feet flat on the ground. Same problem with the seat depth. The lumbar adjustable feature in the back is nice, which is why I give this 3 stars, but overall I would NOT recommend this for anyone my height, particularly if you have lumbar issues.
