Is your computer/office chair "different"?

Thought I'd start a thread on out of the ordinary computer/office chairs. If yours is different, post it here!

Mine is a hybrid.. the pedestal and arm rests from my old "normal" office chair, (which gives me all the normal office chair functions) and the chair portion right out of a brand new (in 2004) Corvette Z06 (which gives me the recline function).

I had a shop make up a 3/8" adapter plate that the chair and pedestal both bolt to. It is super comfortable!!

Looks very cool and comfortable but how stable is it in recline mode?

I use a kneeling chair.

It looks much like this:

Coming from a Corvette, it doesn't recline much at all..... (no room to recline) maybe a few inches at max.

Ah a safety feature

I used one of those chairs for many years.....likely be better if I did now tho the "new" back theory for slouching might disagree.

I love my chairs that I got from Ikea. The Skruvsta and Allak are one of the most comfortable that I have been in
