Talking Show me your sewing chair

In reading the post about - if you take your sewing chair with you to retreats, I was reminded that I will be setting up my new craft room once our move to our new house is complete and I have yet done research on what I want for sewing chairs.

I currently use a couple of my dining room chairs (not very comfortable) in my current craft room, and they will be going back into the dining room once we move, so I will be needing to get a new chair or two for my craft room. I have no idea what I want, let alone what will work, other than I'm pretty sure I don't want armrests. I will be using tables in my craft room, the standard banquet tables if that gives a picture of what I will need to use the chairs with.

So, for those of you who have comfortable chairs, could you post pictures or give a website to a picture of it at a store? Advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have an office chair that I got at Office Depot. I sat in many to find a high seat that I needed. It does have arms but they flip up & align with the back. If I want/need them they are down. Sometimes the knees are a little stiff & need help.

Mine is a Reliable ergonomic chair, it is very comfortable and durable. It has lasted 10 years so far. It does not have casters; designed for hard floors.

Mine has casters. And I grab the arms to scoot in and out.

I also have a Reliable, I've had it about 8 years. I did buy the optional casters. Prior to this chair I bought several from office supply stores. The hydraulic up and down part quit working on all of them within a year or so. I highly recommend this chair.

I have been looking at what everyone has shown, and I think I might actually want a chair without a back as well. I never lean back when I am working on my machine or at my current table. Would it be too weird to want to go for something like this:

If I am doing anything by hand, or just browsing through some quilting patterns, I have a stationary upholstered reading chair with a pole light that I have in my craft room now in a small nook.

This is my sewing stool... a saddle stool. It is very comfortable and keeps your posture perfect.
