[Staples] Humanscale chairs and accessories 20% OFF

20% off Humanscale chairs and accessories at Staples.

Have sat on Humanscale chairs in the past and they're just as good as Herman Miller and Steelcase.
In particular the Freedom Headrest and Liberty Task chair were very nice.

Keep in mind they're made to have limited adjustment options

Same tier as Herman Miller/Steelcase/Teknion, you get what you pay for since the chairs are covered under a 15yr warranty.

That's a really good selling point. Hopefully they're warranty allows for easy replacement

Anybody have experience with their keyboard trays? Worth the 4x premium on your generic ones?

I have their m2 monitor arm - night and day difference compared to my prime cables gas tension arm. I was lucky to get it lnib from Kijiji for $44, but at over $100 I’d say it’s still worth it. It’s holding my 38” lg curve without issues.

Since then I also got their CPU600 CPU under desk mount to attach to the standing desk.

I can vouch for them quality of their stuff as well.

But it looks like their monitor arms are almost 3x that price. I totally get the comfort aspect and being able to sit for long periods which is why I paid $$$ for an Aeron but I rarely adjust my monitors so a $60 dual arm from Amazon is a luxury over the basic stands that came with my monitors.

Some of the banks/large canadian corps have discounts either directly through the manufacturer or through staples that may be worth looking at. Check your intranet site - I got some Haworth chairs 50% off at a previous employer.

I don't have much experience with this brand but are they really comparable to Herman Millan given their price point?

Using a herman miller right now. To be honest, I would rather have an Aeron that is used and in good condition over many new office chairs. Wish I got one earlier in life but damn they are good investments.

At my old job i sat in the Humanscale Freedom and Liberty for 4 years and at home i have Herman Miller Embody, Steelcase Leap V2, and Steelcase Leap Worklounge.

Personally I think Humanscale is at the same level as Herman Miller or Steelcase but not as popular.

One of Humanscale's key selling points for their chairs is the moment you unload it, it's ready to go right away with little to no adjustments needed.

Have the m2 monitor arm at work and POI business interiors gave me a free Steelcase FYI Dual monitor arm...these things are built like tanks.

Prior to that, i had the Ergotron LX monitor arm for about 10 years. I've also helped my buddy setup his Amazon monitor arm...which was trash lol.

If the Humanscale, Herman Miller, or Steelcase arms are a bit out of your price point....i'd suggest looking into Ergotron.

Not sure what makes a monitor arm trash? Mine holds my monitors in the position I set them in. What more can you ask for?

I guess if you're desk sharing and adjusting every day a premium mount is probably smoother and easier to adjust but for someone that tweaks the positions occasionally I just can't relate to the price.

I've got a couple a flo monitors arms at work which I hardly ever adjust and the tilt on them is horrible. God knows how much they cost? A complete waste of money!

I think it really depends on individual situations and needs. An amazon arm works for occasional movements of the monitor, but the m2 works wonders for me since I adjust it every night. During the day I use my widescreen on the M2 for work and at night I angle it to face me for browsing while I play games on my 144hz monitor.

I imported the Humanscale Foot Machine from the US for $100 USD in 2013 - still in fantastic condition 7 years later. Staples has an amazing price on this comparatively. Absolutely invaluable investment. An essential accessory to pair with a high end office chair IMO. Think of it as an extra adjustment to your chair so you have perfect comfort, posture and ergonomics.

The Amazon arm i helped my buddy install had limited range of movement, would always angle in a certain way...which was odd, materials felt cheap, and moving the arms around was not smooth.

Granted it did hold up his monitors and was fine for whatever use he wanted it for but if i have an expensive 4k monitor i would feel much better knowing my monitor arm is much more capable.

I am looking for a good office chair, my current one is giving out (leather or whatever material is peeling off). These are too expensive for me.. are there any decent ones that goes on sale for sub $200? Thanks in advance.

When i bought my Herman Miller Embody from Business Interiors they told me if i were to break the chair myself within the 12 year period, i could get it fixed or get a brand new one...

If chair girl was smart enough to throw a Herman Miller chair instead of some cheap staples chair...she might not be able to save herself from court but she'd at least be able to get a Herman Miller replacement chair =D
