Weren't there these square IKEA poofs that were supposedly really good? Can't remember the name or who got them, do remember seeing the pics though...

That would be "most authentic" I guess, but hard to come by around here.

I don't know what I would use if I didn't have the real thing.
Expensive to import, but worth it for the authenticity.

I have a pair of the dark grey ones. They're not bad but as they're cheap you get what you pay for. Mine were £8 each when I bought them a few years back iirc.

I quite often use my nice black leather office to chair to sit on when I play games. Back support ftw. :awe:

Similar how? In that they are stools?

Totally different shape, tube thickness, material, design and look.

They're kinda hard to see in the pic, but I believe they were called SixTen from Ikea.

About Japanese stool height, but with back support. They're absolutely fantastic.

There was also a similar tiny office chair from ikea, Hajdeby or Hadjeby (what is with ikea and these names?!?!). They're cheap and comfy.

I feel back support is a must, especially for shooters.

Ikea uses Swedish names for their products. Sixten is a man's name "by" means village in Swedish, so that's Hajde village. :awe:
