Office chair without wheels?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Yo OCN. I have a hard question for you... Is there an office chair or comfortable chair without wheels? You ask why without wheels? I'm 17 so I still live under the jurisdiction of my parents... I'm on carpet, but they don't like the look of the plastic mats... My budget is $100. So please OCN, Pimp my Chair!!!

So what's their issue with wheelie chairs? Mines on carpet no issue, one without wheels would prob be worse as it'll sit in one place and do that annoying furniture dent in carpet

I don't get it.
What's wrong with using a chair with wheels?

I use a fold chair. No wheels at all and comfortable. Of course this depends on the height of your desk but I generally put the KB in my lap to type. I'm old so I sit on a couple throw pillows which raises me up a bit.

Kinda like bein a kid again when we sat on Booster Seats.

But it gives me that Kirk feel when I'm sitting here with my hands on the end of the arm rests only I have a cupholder. Kirk never had a cup holder. What's cool is I can fit a 24oz Dew in it and it remains upright. Mine is one of them blue Mac Tools folding chairs that comes in a carry bag. I think it cost $25 when it was purchased new. Make sure to get a good one though cause the weak ones fall apart at the tube gromets and the back where the canvas meets the tube. The seams will rip or blow out.

Anyway something like this is a good thing. It's light can be folded to be moved out of the way and when you move off to go to school works well in a dorm room.

You dont need a mat to have a wheeled chair...
I dont use one and its perfectly fine.
I cant glide around but its not like the extra effort of rotating and sliding a whole 2 feet is a deal breaker.

If your parents have said "No wheeled chairs" thats different.

I'm pretty sure you can buy these flat feet things that go where the wheels would normally go. I have an auditorium at school with these.. they're normal computer chairs but they have these pad things instead of wheels.

EDIT: THESE THINGS!! http://www.competitiveedgeproducts.c...l.aspx?ID=1437
