      Comments about Steelcase A Nice Gesture for the Holidays:

      Yes, if you're an individual and have to pay for this chair yourself it's at the higher price point. But I spend a lot of time in my chairs and comfort, flexibility, and dependability are vital. I was going back and forth between the Gesture and Leap chairs; I had not seen either and Leap was referred to as the "gold standard," but I went with the Gesture anyway. What I like so far about Gesture is that it's very simple to adjust. Not too many knobs and levers, and I really like the way the armrests can swing and turn. The chair arrived in a huge box but I loved the fact that it was already assembled. The only reason I don't give it a 5-star rating is because I've only had it for a little over one month and I can't say one way or other about longterm reliability. Now, from the fit and finish and feel I'd be surprised and disappointed if this chair isn't incredibly durable; but after one-month ownership, I just can't confirm that it is. Oh, the design looks great, as the pictures prove. If you spend a lot of time in your chair (which I would say is 3 or more hours per day) then you will greatly appreciate the comfort and features of this chair. Some of my friends no doubt think I'm crazy for spending this amount on a chair but, hey, I wouldn't spend $3000 on a television so to each his own :-)

          I use this chair 8 hours a day, constantly shifting from one position to another. I can adjust any which way that I sit. Very comfortable seat and back. I would like it to be longer or have a head rest for when I lean back and think.

            Comments about Steelcase A Nice Gesture for the Holidays:

            I have tried almost every other high (and low) end chair out there, including Herman Miller Aeron and Embody. I mean, top of the line. Every chair I've ever used, including those, ends up killing my back sooner or later and cause me to start implementing other measures like adding posture and lumbar supports, which only help temporarily. Bottom line is this GESTURE chair is the best I've ever sat on for extended periods of time. The ergonomics of all parts, from back to arm rests, are just perfect. No more bad posture, no more stiff back, no more humped back, no more pain and discomfort. I have struggled with desk chairs for years and I cannot believe my search... my expensive and exhausting search... is finally over. Thank you Gesture! Thank you Steelcase!!! You will not be disappointed. Worth every penny!

            Comments about Steelcase A Nice Gesture for the Holidays:

            I love this chair. It is one of the only chairs I've found that comfortably supports my back in my favorite posture - slouching. :) It has a truly amazing range of adjustments for the arms, back tension, seat depth, recline stop, and height. It can fit my 10 year old daughter just as well as myself with a few quick adjustments. About the only negative thing about this chair is that it is heavy! I had to carry it up a flight of stairs, and it's not something I'd want to do every day.

            Comments about Steelcase A Nice Gesture for the Holidays:

            I am actually amazed that I like this chair. When I first bought it, it felt so different than what I was used to (particularly the tendency of my old office chair to sag at the bottom), then I sincerely thought it was badly designed or something - I even called to complain. Then…I had a multi-hour deadline (I write music for television) where I had to sit in the thing for hours and hours on end…and it occurred to me that for the first time, I WASN'T getting tired - that the back support was perfect; that the reason it doesn't sag at the front was to reduce pressure on the lower back…I was sold. I also love the flexible adjustments possible for the arms…My only critique (which I mentioned when I called them): I was surprised to discover that the adjustable lumbar support so prominently mentioned in the video adjustment demonstrations (and in the manual as an "option") were not even offered to me when I ordered directly from the Steelcase Store. This I DID complain about, and was told that it wasn't "needed"; however, why offer it at all then? This almost made me want to return the product, but (again), after hours of use I realized that it really WASN'T needed. However, I still think that if they're going to offer it at all, it should be presented as an option on their store's website. The bottom line: it truly is the world's greatest chair. [by the way, those "tags" you had me add your review software won't allow me to correct, so I'm finally giving up after multiple attempts going "Back" and de-checking them, etc. and am now just leaving them]...

              Does the gesture come with adjustable lumbar support? Other sites offer this option for an additional fee, but not the steelcase store. I also can't find any information on this char in that regards, can you please explain.

                Hello,

                The Gesture chair does have the option for an additional lumbar support, we currently do not offer this option on the Steelcase online store.

                Retailers and dealers do have this option available, you can contact the closest in your area and they will be able to assist you:

                Hello Tom,

                For the quick ship version there are no options available, while on the Gesture regular chair you are able to choose between different options (fabric color, back style. color scheme, base color and casters.)
