Does yours adjust from standing to sitting height? I seemed to recall seeing one of those somewhere a while back, and was going to see if my company would spring for one.

I would also like to get Aeron chair, but, like Allen, I experienced a bit of sticker shock when I saw the price.

My adjustable drafting table is made by a company called Mayline. It's got a hand crank at the base to raise it up from sitting height to standing height. I wish I had two of these in my cube instead of one. 78" Wide x 29-3/4" Deep.

No, just a simple pub table and chair combo from IKEA for ~$200. Stuff made for a cvomputer...looks hideous and is up to 10x as much. GAYE.

John;
I use a basic adjustable metal swivel stool, low, no back, just a 12" dia circle.
Forces me to keep good posture, can't really slump or sag.
Just my two cents.

Before this, I had a stand up work station, rarely sat down, when I did, I had a drafting chair, worked pretty good.
