    I also have that chair and also love it. I might have recommended it on one of the threads.

    I'm looking online at the Bungie chair, does anyone have one and do the bungie cords dig into your bare skin? I am small, 5'2" 103 pounds, do you think this will fit me? We have no Container Stores near me and I live in a hot and humid climate and I'm looking for something that won't stick to me and maybe provide some air flow.

    I'm about your size with a couple more pounds. I love my bungee chair from the Container Store. It fits me perfectly. It feels solid but gives in the right places if that makes sense. We live in the south but the house has a/c so the outside weather doesn't bother me. Or it.

    Several of my friends have the bungee chair and like it. They were not in the Container store last time I was there. I live in the south too but keep the house very cool during the summer. Humidity is bad for sewing machines.

    Humidity is bad for me! It turns me into a witch I have the AC going all the time once it gets hot.

    Heat and humidity definitely make me cranky! I run a/c all the time. We have several of them in the house and they get used!

    I was kinda shocked when I saw what the Arrow chair costs ($600+ in Canada). Lovely chair but I see why you waited for good sales!

    Right now I'm using a really expensive chair that my husband gave me when they liquidated the lab he worked in. However, it has arms and they get in the way. It's a really big chair, too big for me really. My other one has no arms and is fine- I use it for my Juki.

    I need a new office chair pretty bad. I'm watching this thread for good ideas.

    Would you mind sharing where you got your Saddle Stool? I'm in need of a new chair too, and I've been looking at some on Amazon.
