Herman Miller Embody
Now this is a chair that truly conveys status in the tech world. The Embody uses four levels of support and "a dynamic matrix of pixels" to conform to even the smallest movements of your body, aligning with the natural curve of your spine. Plus it looks amazing.
It's far from cheap, though -- this Herman Miller seating masterpiece starts at $1,229.
