    I was out looking for furniture to refinish and flip on craigslist when I saw this awesome near mint condition computer chair at one of our thrift stores here in Kansas City. It is a Humanscale Freedom Chair and originally cost around $1200. The pottery barn has it for about 950 on sale and a few places have it for around 400 on clearance.

    Let me just tell you that this is the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in and is perfect for my gaming room. One professional reviewer said that this is the perfect chair if you are wealthy enough not to care about the price and only suffer from first world problems.

    What do you think Sherbros? Here is a link if you want to step your game up:

    nope, pretty much brand new, even had the owners manual taped to it still

    I assume it belonged to someone who bought it just before they dieded

    I have something similar, don't use it for gaming though, got it for free, had no clue these were worth so much. At least I know now if I ever need the money.

    I got my lazy boy for around 1800k, that was 5 years ago . I use it for gaming, movies, etc. Don't think anything else comes close.

    Looks like a 75$ chair from staples tbh. No idea why anyone would pay 1200 for that.

    Its the materials it is made of and the mechanical parts of it. It also comes in a burnt orange color. My local computer store has a fancy looking red and black full sized gaming chair for $150 and while it looks really cool, it is the most uncomfortable thing i have ever sat in
