Hi Everyone
Looking for some feedback
With working from home my el cheapo office chair just isn't cutting it anymore
Need something that doesn't leave my back feeling broken but doesn't totally break the bank either

Have come across Ixaxa Office Furniture, local guys based in kempton
www.ixaxaoffice.co.za

and like the look of this
https://ixaxaoffice.co.za/product/sohum-comfit-grey-high-back-chair/

Gaming chairs all feel really uncomfortable and dont enjoy feeling like im being strapped into a bucket seat
Anyone used Ixaxa before or have any feedback on the chair I linked ?

Am looking to spend sub R5k

Hi Blazing

I haven't used that specific office chair from them, but I placed an order with Hemant from ixxa at the end of last year, and ended up kitting out the the whole office these 2 chairs, Sohum Mesh task Chair and the Comfit Chair and we havent had any problems with them and all the guys using them seem to really enjoy them. I know the Comfit has really helped my back since going back into the office full time.

I hope this helps. +1 Ixaxa

I would say ergotherapy but some models get over 5k but nothing crazy over 7k etc , but they have really good policies and support

I bought 2 "Wau" chairs from Ixaxa. Had a small issue with delivery, but managed to sort it out by speaking to the driver directly (salesman was of no help). Otherwise, no problems and good pricing.

I've said it several times before, but try not to buy blind. You owe it to your (future) self to try out the chairs if at all possible.

Marketing blurbs count for little if the chair doesn't suit you personally. Just be aware that there can be an adjustment period with office chairs. Some force a good posture, which can be jarring compared to cheaper chairs.
