Total Back Support + Knit Comfort

Comfort is not about your chair—it’s about you. We designed the Fern office chair to take its cues from you. Just like the human body, Fern has a strong, yet flexible internal spine at its core. This unique structure and an innovative suspension system give you total back support from your neck down. There’s no hard outer frame or edges to get in the way of your comfort as Fern responds to your every movement. Integrated ergonomic controls create a premium sitting experience in a clean, elegant design. The addition of a lofted-knit back offers even more luxury with a plush, breathable extra layer of comfort, as well as greater dimension and an elevated, customized look.

Please note: This model does not include a lumbar adjustment or forward tilt.

Exceeded expectations

Haven't had for long but has already helped with my back pain. Good for work and lounging and nice enough to put in your home. Having the backrest flex/shift with me is great as I change positions a lot throughout the day

Before buying tried out different configurations at the showroom. Chair feels very different with/without lumbar. Personally I found the lumbar reduced flexibility making it feel more like a regular chair & seemed like it'd be a bit harsh overtime. It has very good support without the lumbar. Provided you're patient enough to eke out the other adjustments I think most will be better off without it. Also found I preferred the bit of cushioning on the digital knit to the mesh versions. The rounded surface & adjustability makes the arms a lot more comfortable than they look. I didn't find the forward tilt or the 5 stage back stop limits(I just set and forget the tension) useful adjustments, but the rest are essential.

Minor nitpicks: I have long legs & would have like it if the seat cushion was 1 inch longer. The seat depth adjust helps, but any more than an inch gap between seat & backrest creates other issues. Also since the backrest is two toned it would have been nice if they used a two toned stitching on the seat for the blue digital knit like they do on the orange one. Also the material on the seat seems like it'll need the occasional lint roller/vacuum & I'm a bit worried it may develop fuzz balls/pilling.

Shipping was quick. It took a week to get to me in the GTA(Canada). It's a lot of cash for a chair but worth it. And it's a lot nicer looking than the Gesture, doesn't squeak like the Embody, and is a lot cheaper than either.

Hi Shawn! Thank you for your review. We are excited that you are enjoying your new Fern and we appreciate your feedback with the lumbar support option. As well, thank you for sharing the request for the seat cushion to be expanded. We will keep this feedback in mind for the future!

Chair is wonderful

Best chair I've ever owned. I originally had an issue reaching out to support, but eventually they did contact me and resolved my issue completely. Don't hesitate to purchase this chair!

Thank you Glen for your feedback. We are thrilled you are enjoying your new Fern!

Excellent quality

Very comfortable, great for working from home as I'm not only using it for office hours but also when I'm gaming, watching TV, you name it. It also compels me to move throughout the day so I don't end up in one position for too long. Would absolutely recommend to friends!

The only thing I would suggest as an improvement would be wheels that could be locked (either stock or sold separately), but otherwise no real complaints about this chair.

Glad you are enjoying your Fern for office, gaming, and while watching TV! We appreciate your feedback and thank you for the suggestion with the locked wheel option. We will be sure to share with our product line team.

Fantastic Chair

Excellent chair, extremely comfortable -- relieved my back and sacroiliac joint pain. I returned an HM Embody for this chair, which is half the price of the Embody -- so glad I did!

Thank you very much for your feedback Jeremy. We are happy that you are enjoying your new Fern!

An Ergonomic Couch

Been looking for a chair that felt like a couch but has a good lumbar support and adjustable features that high-end office chairs have. The Digital-Knit Fern checked those for me.

I'm not sure if you will get the same experience with the mesh version but the way the back part is knitted on this one makes it feel like a pillow on your back. But instead of it just feeling like a pillow, it has a passive lumbar support. It's not an aggressive lumbar support like other office chair, although from my understanding you can get a custom made version with a lumbar support for the fern. But every time I sit on this chair, it just takes away the pain on my lower back. Keep in mind I'm 5'6.

Make sure you adjust the chair to your liking, and let me tell you, you will not regret this chair. Best office chair out there!

Lovelle, thank you so much for taking the time to submit this feedback! We are thrilled to hear that you are loving your new Fern Digital Knit.
