Geneva, meet Amia. Amia, Geneva.


Contrary to popular belief, Geneva is not twelve. No, her winning personality has had eighteen years – and counting – to develop. Don’t let the fact that she has recently graduated from high school fool you, she is a Class A go-getter and is very determined to give her best for what she wants … which is currently to sit at a desk beside the Creative Director at Smart Furniture from ten to six every weekday. Not many eighteen-year-olds can claim to have an office; this one can.

Day One

The Amia is insta-ergonomic technology that has my back. I can honestly say that I have never been happier about a chair switch in my Smart Furniture career — now, I have only had three switches so far, but I’m trying to magnify the fact that this is by far my favorite.
I did a little pre-switch research and discovered that the design for the Amia has roots in the old version of the Volkswagen Bug and a nearly-empty glass of cognac. Don’t drink and drive is what comes to mind next after hearing that, but fortunately I’m at no risk there. I find those ideas very off-the-wall for a chair, but at the same time, I am happy to sit on an idea like that. It reminds me to think outside the boundary or the expected norm.
Earlier today I was complaining about how my back was bothering me, and believe me, it was. I ride my bicycle to and from work, plus most everywhere else I want to go, every day. That leaves me with aches and pains that are hard to deal with and an uncomfortable chair does nothing except perpetuate them. Sitting down in my new Amia after adjusting it to the nuances of my body is sublime. I feel no pressure on my back besides support. As I said, sublime. And, ironically, my Amia is green. Ha! Get it? Sub-lime, green? Ah, I never get over cheesy jokes.
