    I am on the lookout for a comfortable task chair with no arms from Office Depot or Staples as soon as I have a chance to get there. Haha
    I've seen really nice chairs at a LQS but I really don't want to spend $300 on a chair just cuz it has "Bernina" embroidered on the back.

    You can remove the chair arms. That's what I did to my office chair. Set the arms aside in case I want/need to put them back on.

    My husband just recently bought me a really nice office chair. It has a metal ring for my feet to rest on when the chair is in the highest position. It is adjustable so I can lower it and then raise it up high enough to sit at my cutting table which is on bed risers. The best part is it has a lever to adjust the backrest so that it makes contact with my back when I'm sitting forward at the machine. No more lower back discomfort. It was quite expensive but I'll have it for a lifetime. Sometimes it really pays to put the money toward something so important. We all need to take care of our backs.
