Recently the Mid Back Leather Ergohuman LE10ERGLO went on back order while none of the other models were. My first thought was, “They don’t stock nearly as many of that model because it is the least popular of the 4 models, so I am not surprised. Or, a very large order came through.” But after looking into our past transactions and our history of Ergohuman sales, I began to notice a trend. I saw that more and more leather Ergohuman chairs are being sold compared to the mesh models.
The mesh models have always been more popular than the leather. I think part of this can be attributed to the demand for a new aged, up-to-date, ergonomic chair that can catch the eye of any passerby. Mesh usually captures this type of consumers’ eye and they instantly become one of the many switching to a mesh office chair. Another thing that has been critical to the success of mesh office chairs has been the long-term success of the Aeron Chair by Herman Miller. This chair was the first in the line of many mesh office chairs and its success has paved the way for many new great designs by many different manufacturers.
So, why is the leather Ergohuman going on back order and the mesh models aren’t? The biggest reason is obviously that they stock less of the leather mid-back model. But, I think that the leather Ergohuman offers a quality that other leather chairs don’t. Most leather chairs have big, thick padding with a few standard functions (swivel, tilt, seat height adjustment). This type of chair is not ideal for tasking and computing occupations because it lacks the adjustability to allow multi-tasking. Another thing is that most executive leather chairs aren’t ergonomic, which can cause pain and injuries if utilized for a long period. In a computing environment, the user needs to be attentive, correctly positioned and comfortable all at the same time. The Ergohuman leather offers all of these things. The chair has every adjustment needed to make it ergonomic, while at the same time, correcting your posture. It also has the executive appeal of top grain leather. It was only a matter of time before people started telling their friends, co-workers and bosses that the Ergohuman leather is the real deal. The Ergohuman LE10ERGLO will be removed from back order status the second week of November and they should be available to ship in the 3rd week of November.
