I Want to Buy an Office Chair

Hello all
I'm currently WFH and likely to be for the foreseeable future.  I need to buy a new office chair and, as my office is in my dining room, I'd prefer one that not only looks good but is comfortable too.  I've read countless reviews online but I'm no closer to finding a chair. 
In many of the reviews I've seen the Ikea Markus chair reviewed quite highly, whoa, I tried that chair a couple of years ago and it was so uncomfortable.  I definitely need something with more padding.
Do you have a recent purchase you could recommend, thanks.

    I always recommend buying office chairs second/hand from an office furniture dealer because consumer/retail chairs are of such a poor quality. It is always the case that you get what you pay for, and buying a lightly used chair that originally cost a lot new will be better than buying a cheap chair new. 
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.
