    Comments about Steelcase A Nice Gesture for the Holidays:

    ok seriously sat in every chair in the market. previously had the mirra chair by Herman Miller and NOTHING and I mean NOTHING compares to the Gesture. I feel in love with it at Neocon and had to get one.

    Here are some things that they could still improve on. the hand rest is super dynamic but moves easily - wish I could lock it the arm rest.

    Also, the designer did warn me that the white leather gets dirty quick although stains come off fairly easily

      The pros section will only let a limited number of letters be entered. Should be: THE WORLD SITS UP AND TAKES NOTICE, (or) SITTING WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, WHEN SITTING DESERVES A STANDING OVATION, Makes Everyone Sit Like They're The Chairman Of The Board,

        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!

        Pros

        • Amazing Arm Adjustability
        • Comfortable seat
        • Ergonomic
        • Looks great
        • Supportive Back

        Cons

        • Heavy

        Best Uses

        • Heavy Use Office
        • Home Office

        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.

        • Q:

          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.)
