Setting Up The San Francisco “Office”

We have rented a house to set up show in while we are here and part of the setup means transforming part of the house we are in, into a functional office space.  Thankfully, they had a large dinning room table that we have taken over and make it our work space.

One thing we realized quite quickly was that the dinning room chairs were not going to cut it for long days of working away.  About 10 years ago, Mike and I purchased seemingly super expensive chairs called Herman Miller Aeron chairs.  While they are really expensive, over the years they have been proven as the best quality chair on the market.  We have purchased many other chairs from lots of different suppliers only to have them fall apart, loose the stuffing in the arm rests or just break.  The first 2 Aeron chairs that we bought 10 years ago, are still in use and look like new.  So today, we drove over the Bay Bridge in San Francisco to a furniture supplier that was selling hundreds of “used” Aeron chairs.  By used, they said they were bought by Google, for a 3 day conference, and then put on the market to be sold.  So we picked up 4 of them for the team.
