Xtra is the sole distributor for many of the biggest global furniture brands, and if they can end up closing down, I think your chair would be the last of your worries lol.

Xtra not open. Want to buy made in PRC herman also cannot

To be frank, all business start from small to big. All businesses have the risks of shutting down. Especially big companies, see too many examples already.

If they are also serving the business market, then chances of closing is not high since big companies like to get this chair for upper upper managements.

Now all wfh, the demand for office furniture in office sure come down one.

lol I suggest before being smug about it, you make sure you can confirm the shopee seller isn't selling ones that came from the China factory first. Because someone brought to my attention something interesting. Don't end up shooting your own foot later.

P.S. You can still make orders on Xtra's website, and funny enough the stocks arrival date similar to the Shopee seller.

I am not even being smug about it. Why so sensitive and the way i see u keep promoting xtra + an account that is rarely used now so active..

Freedom economy sir.


Xtra is $2199
Shopee is 1599

$600 difference. Screw the warranty i will risk it. I really don't care where it is made from so long it is legitimate.

If you have actually followed the thread, I have been suggesting our fellow friends here to get a Haworth Fern instead of an Aeron, and mentioned the Aeron is ergonomically outdated. So no I'm not from Xtra, if that's what you're insinuating lol.

And yea have been a lurker and chanced upon this thread about ergo chairs, found it interesting, decided to join in. I don't see anything wrong with that.

Yea free economy, and it ain't illegal to be stupid, so please go ahead and screw the warranty, but don't make others join in with you. $600 divided by 12 years is 50 bucks a year, if you are bothered even by that 50 bucks then just get something within your budget like the Haworth Fern with 12 years warranty. Like I said, don't be pennywise pound foolish.

I think it is inappropriate to say people are stupid.

It ain't inappropriate if it's true. Also don't ignore the fact that he has been insinuating things about me for no apparent reason since many pages back.

:eek::eek::eek:

Original HM Aeron comes with hard plastic legs? Chiong or AAA one is it?
