Yeah, strange question, I know but am curious since my chair has seen its better days and I need to purchase a new one. When I purchased my current chair, I was not a vegetarian (about 8 years ago). Now, since I am a strict vegetarain, I do not want to purchase a chair with any leather or other animal derived items making up any part of the chair. Locally, the chairs which seem to be animal-free are very uncomfortable, and I am hesitant to buy online since I cannot sit in the chair first. So, where did you buy your chair? Is there a vegan chair that everyone prefers? I would prefer an office type chair, but may look into others if needed. Thanks!
