Looking for recommendations on a comfortable studio chair
Something that after sitting in it for a few hours, my bum isn't sore.

The chair mentioned above isn't the best chair.

"When I'm sitting for hours on end"

You've got no business doing that so if a slightly uncomfortable chair makes you wiggle, stand and walk, buy that, it'll be FABBY! Laugh

Instead of sitting and doing your work, I would strongly suggest you stand.

Try one of those Anti Fatigue Standing Mats. They are cheaper than a chair.

Your performance will be better if you stand, and you will live longer too!

an alternative to the mat is a good pair of 20-30mmgh knee-high compression socks. i can be on my feet for hours without them getting sore while wearing them. even at 15-20mmgh they're going to be worlds better for sore feet than regular socks.

me again. : )

Bought a cheap chair and it's squeaky as all get out.
Can't stand right now, will when booth is built but in the meantime, any chair recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I've got a fairly nice, fairly expensive chair with the mesh back and all and I still have to "grease it" with a bit of WD40 every so often.

Before I switched to standing or using a wobble chair when I need a break, I purchased a chair from Autonomous.ai which is a great Herman Miller knock-off for a fraction of the price: https://www.autonomous.ai/office-chairs

And for the wobble chair, I bought something pretty much like this: https://effydesk.ca/products/wobble-stool?variant=37695126077623&currency=CAD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic

Got a new chair.
Sihoo Ergonomic
Been using a couple weeks and it's very quiet. No squeaks at all.
Can of WD-40 and graphite at the ready just in case but wanted to let everyone know.
