I'm surprised I haven't seen more pages on the internet regarding this topic.

I'm trying to get a great reading chair for myself, and I thought this would be a great place to fish for ideas. What kind of chairs do you think are conducive to reading? I find that most either you fall asleep in or don't have enough/any neck support (also it's hard to get a good chair for a tall dude).

My ideal is some kind of lounge chair that has good leg & arm supports, but I'd like to hear everyone else on what they use and what their ideal could be if they were to get a new chair.
I have the answer if you're near a store or online - the Ikea bent wood ergonomic chair, a lovely looking piece of curved/bent wood, very Scandinavian looking classic simple design. with some padding. It's incredibly comfortable, and very conducive to a nice long read !
Very reasonably priced, about £100 sterling , and I've had mine for 5 years and it's still as comfy as when I bought it.
Can't remember the model, but I'll look it up if anyone wants me to - they still sell it I know - in leather or linen upholstery.

Found it ! It's called the "Poang" armchair, fabric cushioning, laminated birch, and is at present in UK priced at £55 sterling - incredible value. (Online and in store).
Oh, if you don't mind falling asleep in it - there's a rocking version !

There'squite a few versions of it - upholstery being the difference - from leather/faux leather to a kind of poly stuff which I suppose is for the patio !

I second this! Poang chairs are amazingly comfortable!

I've had two of them. If you're one of the, er, heavier, sort of people like I am, they don't last. On both of mine the wooden frame of the seat support has split after about a year. If you're a "lightweight", I'm sure they're fine.

I've been using this since February. Really comfortable for me to read in.

Quite a while back I broke my neck in a horrific accident. It was operated on and still carries a metal plate and screws and a lot of bone overgrowth. As result I have constant neck pain and need a chair with a very upright back that goes all the way up to the back of my head. So I have an office chair bought with that in mind.

But I also like an 18th-century high-backed wing-armchair with a footstool. This sort of thing:

That is the type of chair that I use too. It is perfect for reading and I prefer to my lazyboy recliner. You need good posture to avoid back aches, and that chair has it.

I wish I could get a dentist chair (the chair the patient lies on in the dentist office). Adjusted just right, it's damn comfortable.

ekornes stressless. Expensive, but saved my back and neck. Can read for hours. They have different styles and sizes. Love yours Pigeon92. Mine's not so pretty... Highly recommend.

Yes, that looks about a close second in comfort to my late grandmother's Victorian furniture.

Those of you who went the Lazy Boy route: Do you have pictures and model names/numbers you could post? I really like those Relax the Back Perfect Chairs garrybuck recommended, but what an expensive chair! Even Lazy Boys must be cheaper.
