Oh come on now. As a fellow Aeron owner, I can say with fairly good certainty that you had been looking for any excuse possible to upgrade to the Embody the first chance you got. I have no sympathy.
That being said, how are you adjusting to the Envelop? I'll be honest; I have heard mixed reviews. Why the Envelop? How well do you like it after some use?
I'm quickly adjusting to the Envelop desk very well! It's definitely forcing me to not slouch in front of the computer. I highly recommend it for those who want to fix their posture and is willing to drop that kind of money on a desk. Or if anything, make you're own reclining desk or find something with the same concept.
The Embody though is no doubt an extremely excellent chair! Not as good looking as the skeleton looking Aeron chair, but comfort-wise it's definitely up to par with the Aeron. This Embody though is not mine, it's my friends. We agreed to temporarily switch chairs because of the Envelop and Embody combo and we just couldn't resist, we just had to put these two together.
The only cons I can think of for this Envelop is the lack of space for other things such as papers, notebooks, pens or even a desk lamp. At least to the way I organize things and how my claustrophobic OCD works. I'm a minimalistic and bare bones essential type of person. Since I graduated from school already, I have no need for extra space for homework, papers and etc, so this desk is perfect!
Here it is after finally figuring out my cable managements for the computer
Just bare bones essentials
