Now that I'm spending a bit more time every week programming at home and starting to feel a bit of soreness from a bad desk / chair combination, I was hoping to reach out to the community here for some ideas on desks and chairs that seem to work well.
Current situation: Chair sits way too low below desk with poor arm-rests that don't support my arms, causing all the typing to be done with my forearms angled up. This could be fixed by just buying a new professional chair that sits up higher, but I'm also disliking my desk more and more as the space to support triple monitors is poor and I can't center between the monitors in the work space.
With that in mind, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to keep both the desk and chair around $1k without sacrificing quality if possible (open to higher value suggestions if folks feel strongly about a particular combination). There is so many options online, it's hard to really understand what will work best and the products available locally at OfficeMax, BestBuy, etc. is extremely poor.
Regarding chairs I'm thinking something alone the line of a classic Aeron, but hopefully a bit cheaper version to fit under the budget when adding a desk. If specific desk / chairs are too hard to recommend individually, any tips on reputable online dealers with good quality products would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance for any advice / tips / help.
