Well it all goes back to last school year. I'm a teacher, you see. A teacher who teaches high school students how to act. I was sitting because I was more pregnant than anyone should ever have to be. I had, that morning, in my ninth month of pregnancy, and the very same week the musical opened, poured scalding water all over my left hand. The school nurse was tending to my burns while I tried to pay attention to a drama class production.

In order to distract myself from agonizing pain, made worse by my hugely pregnant state, I began to rock in my desk chair. Right at the climax of a student's monologue, the chair squeaked (dramatically, of course) and cracked.

I'll never forget that moment of agony. But I do hope to forget that stupid chair. When I replace it. With a Cobi.

Actually the chair would be for my wife, who is an equine veterinarian. Although most of her patients are pleasant some are down right miserable and weighing 1,500 pounds doesn't help either. So when she's back from making rounds she needs comfort without the bulkiness of a Lazy-Boy, or the stiffness of a slatback chair. With all the options available with the cobi chair this would make office work alot nicer, plus keep me in her good graces!

My Z-line desk is very disappointed in me. It has to put up with a Staples stock chair. It is so embarrassed that it makes me shut the door to my studio when we have company. Please help me end the shame.

I have spinal cord tumors and spondylosis so I need a chair that I can physically sit in. This is it.

Both my husband and myself are retired, me just recently. My favorite activity is spending time at the computer. Unfortunately we have to shorten our time at the computer due to uncomfortable chairs. We've tried a few brands but none have worked. It's too expensive for us to keep buying chairs, so your contest appealed to us very much. Thanks for your consideration.

I have been working for a renowned design school, Pratt Institute, for the past 8 months, and have been slowing losing steam when perched at the computer as I am now as a result of my extremely uncomfortable chair. Or should I say, chairs.

I've gone through no less than 4 different chairs, trying my best to find one that yields sturdy back support to ease my condition of scoliosis and aches from tennis, and thoroughly brings comfort to my body 9-5, Mon-Fri. I have put socks on chairs with holes on the arms, sat in front of different pillows used a homemade tennis-ball massage device, even removed the arms altogether; and have subsequently considered Pilates balls, inflatable chairs, stools, and simply kneeling on pillows.

What I would love most, and be so thankful for, would be an elegantly designed, exquisitely crafted, and delightfully comfortable chair. I would be so grateful for a Cobi, and I would be finally feel at home and at ease in my office!

I should win Cobi because I can't afford nice things or furniture, I have a son, I'm a single mother struggling and I think its time for me to have some good luck in life (other than having my handsome little son, of course!) and win something that would be for me, because everything I do is for my child and it would be nice to win something for myself. I hope you will consider me!

Now that I'm living single. Time for a remodel. And what better piece of furniture to inspire a whole house.

I would really like to have a Cobi Chair in my home. It would be of great use in my computer room. Currently I'm using a fold up chair from our patio set and as the days, weeks and months pass I'm feeling pain in my back. I know it's from sitting hours on end in this patio chair. The option of getting a custom fit chair with armrests would do wonders in the room and my back/posture. Thanks!

I think I should win a cobi because I am settling on my first house this friday (Aug 21) and my home office is going to be a focal part of my house. I work from home. I want it to be the showcase of my house. And what better way to enjoy my time in my own new home working than in a Cobi.

I would love to win a Cobi chair as my present desk chair is not only 10 years old, but I have to fight off a cat in order to use it. And this is not just any cat, but a cat that hates people. Think of it as Indiana Jones trying to claim a relic. As much as I like my ''relic'', it has served its purpose and I'd love to have a modern, hip, and comfortable home office chair to use while I design my next project. Please...?

My cat jumped off my stained and faded old home office chair and started a conversation with me. "Meow" he said, batting the chair with his paw making me look at the dent in the chair from my posterior. "Meow?" I asked him, tilting my head to the side, and blinking in agreement to his disgusted opinion of my current chair, as books on talking to cats tell you to do.

So I sat down, and my poor aching back could not help me get comfortable. I fidgeted quite a bit, and never got comfortable. I began to type and my cat jumped up onto my poor aching shoulder. "Purrrr" he said, meaning that even my shoulder was more egonomically correct for him than my chair. "Meow" he said rubbing my cheek, meaning, go ahead and submit your name for that cool snazzy new Cobi chair without the butt dent in it. So I did.

I had an interior design company...until the market crashed and killed us. Now, I spend several hours a day...in my chair...job hunting. I am now, quite literally, sitting upon cloth covered plywood. This doesn't make for a happy arse or anything ergonomically connected to it.

The Cobi is a breath of fresh air. Form and Function. I love it. So often you have to sacrifice one or the other but with this piece Steelcase has provided both. There are so many cool colours (I think I may be a bit partial to the Concord or Scarlet over Platinum but Maya is pretty unique...) that the Cobi can match any interior and this makes them damn near collectibles.

Perhaps if I am sitting comfortably once again the blood will flow properly to my brain and assist me in getting that great new gig. Please hurry. My butt is going numb again. Seriously.

I NEED a Cobi chair! For the past year I was using a wooden kitchen chair for my desk. It belonged to a kitchen set that was bought at Walmart 15 years ago. I work from home constantly so you know at the end of the day my butt was killing me (There's nothing like 8 hours in a wooden chair)! Worse yet a few weeks ago I was sitting at the desk when I heard a loud cracking sound and then found myself on the floor! The wooden seat had split,leaving me chairless.

In desperation, I am now using a chair that my neighbor was giving away in the front of her yard (I hope that no one saw me carrying it home). Needless to say, there were some good reasons for the give away, one of which is the sheer ugliness of it! I would love to have a Cobi chair and my family would be happy to see the hideous chair I have now disappear! I would send a pic of the current chair but I don't want to scare anyone.

Why they still make us endure YEARS of hand drafting and table-work, I''ll never know, but I''m now sure that College Studio Professors are somehow in cahoots with the chiropractic industry. Thanks to Cobi for, quite literally, having our backs!!!

Because i don't have a chair!!! I have used and exercise ball and a Black and Decker work bench. All while my husband enjoys the decent chair I bought him for father's day - but that is the story of my life. I buy him stuff but would never spend money on myself. My next chair will most likely be a repurposed tv stand after I replace the 2 broken wheels! Please help me.

Hello, darlings. I'm Arthur Bath, some nobody sitting ugly in a wicker Ikea chair. Have you experienced wicker? It sheds. Like the most infuriating puppy. I live a most fantastic life: minimalism, music, bicycle rides, the glamour of it all. I am however a student, a fantastically poor student. Hence the Swedish particleboard that lines my bedroom. Ikea can pull off the shape, but not the quality; so sad, too bad.

I am a man about the Internet. Have you tried? I do freelance web work for a marketing company, which means that I spend tedious hours of my time sitting in my wicker disappointment, adjusting margins on hideous stock photos. Oh! how your wonderful Cobi chair would make my silly and lowly work so much more comfortable! The very concept! Please consider my plea. I have potential to be a modern man. A man of the future! If only I could sit in your chair!

Sitting, sitting, sitting...at work, graphic designer by day, back hurting...poor posture. Get in my car, drive home...more sitting...back better but still hurting. Get home, photographer by night...sit at my computer...edit photos...more sitting...chair smells like feet, creaky, wheel falls off occasionally...worst chair of my day, need replacement...writing this essay, more sitting.

I am a cabinet builder and half of my time is spent in my office designing cabinets on my computer. I get very bad back pain and normally end up slouching down in my seat after 7-8 hours of drawing a cabinet.

I am a Brazilian translator living in Ireland. I work from home so I am at my desk 10-12 hours a day. Also, living in Ireland I have no clue about where to get a Cobi here. I find this chair ab-fab (absolutely fabulous). The one I have at the moment did not live up to what I expected. I am willing to pay the shipping costs, in case you do not ship outside the U.S.

Hubby and I have just moved to a new house that finally has a designated home office room and I would love to decorate it in a professional & contemporary style, so I can work better and feel more comfortable. Cobi would fit in perfectly here!

I work for a production company doing web and graphic design. My work days are 9 hours long, and my current desk chair is a cheap WalMart disaster. It definitely doesn't help my back. I have disc problems in my back and I need more support! I'm constantly having to stretch, pop my back/neck, and just get up out of this uncomfortable chair. If I had a Cobi I could be much more productive and focused.

When I was 14 I had a terrible bicycle accident that removed part of my face, neck and shoulder and left me with amnesia (no memories were intact prior to the day of my accident). Thanks to the wonderful surgeons that sewed me back together my facial injury is almost imperceptible. However over the years my back has experienced great pains all derived from minor muscular adjustments that stemmed from this accident.

My current working chair is not a Cobi Chair. In fact it is one of those .com era "super chairs" that are all webbed, but ultimately are very uncomfortable. I have heard that the Cobi is a very comfortable chair for people that spend countless hours on their butts. Being a graphic designer it would fit in my design space since I can design my Cobi myself. When I heard that 5 Cobi Chairs were being given away I had to jump on my chance to get one.

I'm tired of sitting on the folding chair that I currently use. That's right - a folding chair. Sure it's one of those "fancy" ones with a padded seat, but c'mon it's a folding chair. I could get something better from Craigslist (couldn't I?) but that guarantees that someone else's bottom has pushed and prodded the seat cushion into shapes that my bottom may find less than appealing.

I would take good care of my Cobi since I know it would take care of me!

I should win a Cobi because I do not have one. They look really cool and you are giving away 5 for free. I do not currently have a desk chair so most times, I sit on a step ladder at my desk or on my futon. Have you ever heard of anyone being productive on a futon? That being said and me being poor and in the market for a new chair, it would be rather awesome of you to give 1 of those 5 to me.

My girlfriend needs one. Compelling, I know. She is a graphic designer who's having a go at freelancing. As you may know (perhaps not, who am I to say), graphic design involves sitting for great lengths of time staring at a blank screen trying desperately to conjure your next "great idea" that your client will hate. It's hard. Finding new clients is even harder.

Neither of these, however, is as hard as her current desk chair. Joseph, as I shall name it, is an old chair. During his prime, I am sure Joseph was a fine chair, proudly serving as a barrier between gravity, a person's rear, and the floor. However, even in his prime, Joseph was meant to serve this purpose in his native environment - the kitchen.

Now, Joseph is on his last legs, so to speak. His seat has been patched up with a "decorative" piece of thin plywood and some brass tacks. Yes, like an old farmer with a hip replacement, he's still working but he's hobbling along (at a most uncomfortable of paces). With Joseph in the tired shape that he's in, she desperately need a new chair.

Since she's just starting out, capital is not exactly abundant to finance Joseph's retirement. Nothing could be more fitting for a person with a heightened awareness of design than a new Steelcase Cobi chair. With a wide variety of bright/vibrant colors, she's sure to find a fun color that gives her studio even more pizazz. Joseph was never much for pizazz. She's sure to love the abundance of flexibility the seat offers for maximizing her comfort. With a breathable (read: not sweaty) back, she'd be crazy not to want one! And like Joseph, the Cobi can be counted on for years of reliable service (albeit far more comfortable service).

When it does come time to retire Cobi to the great office furniture pasture, we'll both be happy it was designed with the full life-cycle in mind. Yes, sitting in front of the computer in her new Cobi, she will be able to wow her clients all the more, and preserver through their critiques, happy in the knowledge that she's sitting in a better chair.

Running Ferretbunny.com takes a great deal of my time and patience. Being at the computer all day long trying to single handedly produce new ferrety-animated cartoons means I have to sit for an extended number of hours each day (including weekends) at the expense of my poor back and buttocks.

My current desk chair, worn out and lumpy, lacks the style and comfort I require to feel at my best. Visually it's distracting and ergonomically it's uncomfortable. If I had a better chair that where more pleasing to the eye and my most sensitive of areas well then maybe I wouldn't dread walking into my studio every day. Would a Cobi make the tedious process of animating 300 frames a day a lot more fun? In the immortal words of Ferretbunny, "Yech!" ............. ....that means "yes" :>

At my office I sit on a Herman Miller Aeron chair. It is quite comfortable. At my home office, which I use as much as my work office, I sit on something akin to a hockey puck. I would love move my [bum -ed.] off of the puck and onto one of your deluxe Cobi chairs.

I've been using a simple folding chair at my office at home because I can never seem to find a chair that I would enjoy and would be able to afford. It does get annoying at times but I live with it, a new Cobi chair would be pretty cool!

When I first started working from my home office years ago, I found a wonderful backless cross between a chair and a stool with a thick foam-based seat. That bright yellow quasi-stool has been at my desk ever since.

In the years between then and now, I've had two children... and the stool shows it. The rolled rubber edges have been picked at and crumbled off in chunks along the inner middle, the shape of the seat (and room to sit) being whittled away chunk by chunk. And... if you aren't careful when you move the stool, the casters fall off (and then fall off again when you lift it to put another one in). How many times have I sat down to have the chair tip precariously because a caster is off?

A smart, flexible, very cool chair is exactly what I need.

I would LOVE to win a Cobi chair because I have recently begun working from home (trying to remain positive about downsizing and cut hours and use this opportunity to focus on creating my own work). I'm a photographer & designer with a DIY ethic. So my latest work days are spent largely in my "home office" which consists of a sheet of birch ply and Ikea Vika Curry legs and an Ikea Nisse folding chair which are currently set up in our guest room.

Right before my hours cut got I had purchased my first home & moving from a studio apartment to a two bedroom house left a lot of furnishing to acquire and very little money to do it with income being cut by more than half.

I think I've been making some excellent work from home and it's amazing to have the opportunity to get back to doing what I always wanted to do, but I can't imagine how perfect it would be to be able to do it comfortably as well. To not ache after working for a few hours, to not constantly be trying to shift my little chair as if there''s some more comfortable position it could possibly offer. To be able to move and gasp swivel!

I've been coveting the Cobi for a while now since it offers all the amazing support and benefits of classic work chairs like the Aeron without being so dominate and, in all honesty, intimidating. Not to mention the orange (my favorite color and official color of my alma mater - go ''cuse!) would look fantastic in the room that i just painted the color of a no. 2 pencil and really help make the best of a less than ideal situation.

The one item that I spent most of my time on isn't a computer, rather it is my chair. About 8 hours every weekday I sit on a chair that more so resembles a piece from the torture museum. When I get home, I have to sit some more of course, for checking emails, reading magazines, drawing and other things. Of course by this time all I want to do really is just lay but I have to sit and work and create and while there is nothing wrong with that, a good chair would make a significant improvement from my office chair. I've tried different ones but nothing seems to work. I mean, cobi chair is something I wanted for a long time. I'll even give you what I have in my chair savings. Please? Thanks!

I need to win a Cobi chair because I have to rely on hundreds of tiny little orange crabs to hold me up as I work. They often tickle me as their appendages are constantly adjusting to hold my weight. It has become very distracting. I don't get anything done. I thought it was funny at first, but now, it's just getting ridiculous. When I laugh too hard, they can't hold me so we all go flying backwards. It is a constant battle.

If I win this chair, my crab friends and I can relax and get back to what we are really suppose to be doing...working and scurrying.

I would really like to get a new chair for my aunt, who got into a really severe car accident a few years ago. I think this chair would really help give her the back support she needs with her spinal cord injuries she sustained. She refuses to let me get her a new chair because she is proud to get her current office chair for free from her work 15 years ago, so the only way she'd accept a new one is if I got one for free or won one. The reason why I really like the Cobi chair is that she likes bright colors, and it's hard to find office chairs that are ergonomic and non-black. This is such an awesome giveaway!!

I am about to start a 3 year Master of Architecture program at UCLA and I just KNOW that I'll be spending at least 80% of my waking hours in the studio (and perhaps even more). That means I need to do simply EVERYTHING I can to make sure that my studio space as comfortable and well-appointed as possible. The "variety of postures" the Cobi chair offers will be perfect for the different types of work that I'll be expected to produce during school: manual drafting, computer-aided renders, model-building, textbook-reading, etc. Plus, what budding, wannabe-architect wouldn't want an eco-friendly chair? The idealist in me can't help but to hope that someday I'll be designing my own eco-friendly structures, perhaps with Cobi chairs as a finishing touch? My 3 years of graduate school enslavement commence in September, so the timing of this Cobi chair giveaway couldn''t be more perfect.

Here's to hoping; if I could cross my fingers, I would - but I'm a CAD monkey, and I have to earn the big bucks somehow...

My last chair in my guest room was a nice computer chair. Until one day my friend Ryan ran his car through the side of my house. Needless to say he ran right over my new computer chair i bought at walmart. Now, my only option was to move the couch up closer to the computer. My couch is now my computer chair and it stinks. I can't slide in or out of my computer desk.

Having worked at a boutique entertainment public relations home-office for over a year now, I have had the pleasure of sitting in an over-sized, left behind from the 90's, vinyl chair that will not fit into the opening of my desk. My chair, whom I have named Brutus, will only allow me to sit close enough so that I can barely reach my keyboard (I must say that I look like a zombie with my arms spread out straight).

Sitting in this position for over 8 hours everyday has definitely taken a toll on my arms, my back, and now my waist. Taking into consideration that I am only 25 years old, I feel that it is too early to be using a walker to assist me on those cold days which exacerbate the ache in my lower back, nor to be using heat patches all over my body.

My boss, whom I've confronted in regards to this issue comes back with the typical, "With this economy, you're lucky to have a chair...". And yes, I agree, at least I have something to rest my bottom on...However, who could deny the beauty that is the COBI CHAIR!

Available in an array of colors and fits, it is the tempurpedic of all chairs. I first fell in love with the Cobi chair when visiting my boyfriend at his office when he had to work over a weekend. Given that he is a fancy-schmany art director at an advertising firm, my jaws dropped and eyes bulged at the collection of Cobi chairs that rested beautifully into the opening of all the 20 desks there.

Although I was only dropping off lunch for the boyfriend, I ended up staying an hour or two, pretending to be interested in his project...just so I could mold into the flexing seat of the beautiful Cobi Chair. Upon hearing of this contest, I bolted at the opportunity of being able to have a Cobi Chair of my own! I am in desperate need of a new chair, and just the thought of having my very own Cobi soothes the muscles in my body!

P.S. Does it help that my pomeranian''s name is Tobi? =)

After losing my job in January, I did the best thing I could think of. I joined forces with a friend of mine and we opened our own design firm. Using materials and objects creatively we were able to scrape together an office in an old gas station on route 66 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are trying to put a new face on the design scene in Oklahoma and the Midwest in general.

As you know, a comfortable Cobi chair can affect your attitude and bottom line efficiency day in and day out, and as a fresh new start up we need as much good attitude and efficiency we can get. Thanks guys!

I actually would like this not for my home office but for my day job. I work at a university on a grant supported research project. The grants cannot buy office furniture. Due to the hit in the endowment that the university took, the chances of having my windows washed are next to nil and office furniture is out of the question.

I spend way more time than I should at my desk in an attempt to keep us in compliance and keep the grants flowing. A really good chair could make a big difference in comfort. Comfort would lead to clearer thinking and better chances at keeping myself and my fellow researchers in jobs.

Why I need a Cobi Chair!!!





Daily grind,
Sitting on my behind.
Ugly blue,
Nearly new!
Missing screws and scratching floor,
Sitting in this chair is such a bore!
Flipping over is nothing new,
That is how my chair has turned me black and blue!
Aching back, pulling hair,
I HATE MY CHAIR!!!

Could it be?
A new seat for me!

Conformable
Operativeness
Bearing
Inexhaustible

My husband was put on social secureity disability and he can no longer drive a truck. I can not afford to get a comfortable chair to use at my computer desk, this is true right now I am using a 2 step folding ladder for a chair. We had to move and sold the dinette set with 4 chairs, so this is all I have to use.

I would love to win a Cobi chair, it would be so comfortable and better for my back.

For years and years, I've been using the same chair at my desk. It's a chair that honestly feels like it has been passed down from generation of Serafin to the next. It's a fine little chair that I think my dad stole from work back in the early 90's. Since then, it has been our family''s computer chair and then when I moved out a few years ago, I somehow inherited this armless torture device. I'll email you a photo of the thing so you see what I have to deal with.

Anyway, for three years now I've been saddled with this chair that isn't comfortable or particularly attractive on the ol' eyes. I need me a new chair. But living in Chicago with a crummy 200-year old Corolla makes it challenging to go out to the store and just buy a nice new chair. Plus I'm sort of, how do you say, umm...cheap, and don't really have the money to be spending on a chair. Because of this current chair situation, I've found myself sitting at my desk less and less. It's sad, too, because I have a pretty rad desk if I do say so myself.

But now I'm finding myself laying in bed on my computer more. It's nice and all, but it's not where I should be. I should be at my desk like a normal human being! I want to be at my desk! I want this chair so that I will definitely be at my desk! My desk misses me and I miss my desk. Please help to reunite this great love that is torn apart because of circumstances beyond my control. We want to be together so badly, but we just haven't been able to make it work.

I believe that Cobi could be the therapist that can reunite this couple once and for all.

I have had my free dinky computer chair since I bought my first computer in 1999. This chair came with my computer for free. The back has finally fallen off and I am still using it because you can slide the back on and it will hold for a while until you have to push it forward again. Talk about being green! Now I would like one of your Cobi chairs because they seem groovy!!

I don't need a new home office chair. I need ANY home office chair. Allow me to explain.

Let's begin at the beginning: I grew up in furniture Mecca. Southwest Michigan. I have known plenty of people over the years who work for the likes of Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Baker furniture. I've been close with upholsterers, independent furniture designers, and refurbishers. I have grown up surrounded by classic chairs, sofas, lounges, and tables.

I almost went through Kendall College of Art and Design's furniture design program. I am a furniture enthusiast. I am also an artist. Recently I finished a series of paintings as an homage to Charles and Ray Eames and the furniture they designed. Even MORE recently I moved to Chicago. Having just jumped into a position which is 100% commission, I don't yet have any money, but do have need of a comfortable work space in my home.

My current chair? My mattress. On the floor. In my bedroom. Not exactly conducive to professional activity. What do I need? I need a Cobi chair. So I can get work done - Comfortably, and in style. So I can make something of myself. So I can roll around like a little kid. If I don't win a free Cobi? Who knows? I might just fail in my endeavor as a young professional trying to make it in the city. If I can't make it as a businessman, I can't pay rent. If I can't pay rent, I'd have to move back in with my parents and work in a coffee shop again.

So this chair may very well be the difference between a successful individual who is happy and productive and has the resources to give back to his community and a miserable adult-child with a dead-end job, living in his parents' house.

Seriously, I need and want a Cobi Chair.

The chair I currently have is not adjustable. :( I need a chair that's comfortable, adjustable, and that looks fantastic - I need the Cobi! :) The eco-smart features are definitely a plus. I hope I win a Cobi, so I can be comfortable while working, which will make it easier to focus on my work and not on how terrible my chair is!

I should win a Cobi to replace my hand-me-down office chair because I'm brand new to your site and such a large first impression would have me evangelizing your site to all of my architecture co-workers, friends, family members and fiancee. I'm good at brand placement, and my tush could use better placement as well! Win for both!

I love good design and appreciate it most when it meets function (I am still waiting for that perfect stilletto that feels like a sneaker - but a girl can''t have everything she wants - or can she - would you be open to designing shoes?).

Sorry, I digress...My name is Rachel, I live in Los Angeles, CA and I want, no - I NEED - one of your chairs - please? I am in the process of starting a jewlery business and my day requires focus, determination, multi-tasking, and a lot of sitting in a chair. I design everything hunched over my little work space and am not proud of what I look like at the end of the day (mashed up like a ball).

I really sit all day...ALL DAY...and the chair I have right now does nothing to support me or my back....Which brings me to my back (sigh). I have struggled with a herniated dics for the past three years (I was an athlete growing up) and out of the blue (actually, a month before I got married - that wasn''t wasn''t stressful at all) I woke up and couldn't get up (well I could kinda get up, but I was a MESS).

Since then, I have had to adjust my lifestyle to accomidate my injury. I have seen multiple doctors and although today I am almost pain free on the day to day (thank goodness), my back goes out on me now, and it's a new thing that I have to learn to live with. I have lost confidence in my body and it's strength, and am scared to do things that I used to do with my eyes closed. I have spent tons of money on doctors, have to do strength-building exercises (which I don't do as much as I should - and even writing this makes me feel guilty cause i didn''t do them this morning).

A COBI CHAIR would help me in TONS of ways and I appreciate this opportunity provide you with my sob story!

Because I sit at a computer all day designing beautiful things in CAD/revit/sketchup and such while sitting in a horrible hard IKEA chair that is making me slouch and need to see a chiropractor. I want to experience the comfort and beauty myself.
