Ellie Charms Agency

Ellie impresses MG Marketing with its high design, and most importantly, its comfort.

One of the first thoughts that come to mind when you see Ellie from 9to5 Seating is “design.” The unique shape of this office chair gives it a very distinctive look that truly catches your attention. This office chair has a simple form, yet gives off a fun and whimsical energy. The single-molded base is elegant and minimal. For having such a design-oriented aesthetic, this chair is also surprisingly comfortable, and ideal for sit-stand use at a height-adjustable desk. The seat cushion is on the slightly firmer side, which we personally love! Another unique feature – the integrated armrests have just the right amount of flexibility.

When you sit down in Ellie for the first time, one of the things you’ll notice is the amount of back support you are given. For an office chair that looks and feels like a lounge chair, you find a good amount of reinforcement to help promote proper posture at your office desk. There is also a handle to help adjust the height of the chair. But then you discover that if you pull the handle outwards, the unique ability for Ellie to lean backward truly makes this office chair come to life.

Imagine being in a long virtual presentation with Ellie as your companion – You sit upright to be professional, but you’re comfortable as Ellie’s design gives you the support you need. You give all your best efforts in the meeting, and as soon as everyone signs off, you take a deep breath, reach down beside your Ellie, pull the handle out, and lean back as you breathe a sigh of relief and the feeling of accomplishment wash over you.

Now with a design like Ellie, it has to fit in with the vibe of your work environment. Using 9to5 Seating’s Chair Designer tool, which is both free and easy to use, you can design your Ellie office chair with virtually endless options. The Ellie models offer mid-back to high-back options, rolling casters to a stationary wire base, and many more options.

Additionally, one of the unique things about the Ellie design is that you can specify a two-tone option for the upholstery. Two-tone can be tricky, but thanks to 9to5’s precision craftsmanship you can count on the alignment and seams to be tight and precise. There is also the option of choosing different colors and/or fabrics on the inside and the outside of the chair. With hundreds of fabric options for the inside and outside upholstery, plus the option to spec your fabric, the design options are essentially limitless. Be sure to preview the exact look of your Ellie before specifying it, on the Chair Designer This way you can ensure that your Ellie fits perfectly into your design.

The applications for this chair are broad and range from corporate workstations, conference rooms, collaborative spaces, hospitality, higher-ed admin facilities, and beyond. One note for small businesses and end-users: when the office chair first arrives, you quickly realize that it requires minimal assembly. In fact, no tools are needed when setting up Ellie. All the pieces slide into place, and the chair is secure and ready to be used immediately. Two thumbs up to Ellie, a design-oriented, and very comfortable office chair!

Planting Trees Together

9to5 Seating is partnering with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on reforestation around the globe by planting one tree for every dollar donated. With a long-time dedication to sustainability, 9to5 Seating will focus its donation and efforts on reforestation in California, where the company’s headquarters is located and where deadly wildfires have impacted numerous communities in recent years.

One Tree Planted teams with individuals and organizations in more than 43 countries including The Jane Goodall Institute, to plant trees and restore nature and biodiversity. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment. The organization has doubled the number of trees it has planted since 2014 and enables its partners to choose a region of focus for its efforts.

“We’ve seen the devastating impact of forest fires too often in our home state of California, which is why it was so important to us to partner with One Tree Planted,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “We’re committed to sustainability at every opportunity, and teaming with this impressive organization will enable us to make an even greater impact.”

9to5 Seating is committed to sustainable and environmentally responsible business practices. This global perspective is endorsed and executed throughout every aspect of our corporate culture, and within our warehousing, manufacturing and office facilities. We are proud to demonstrate our commitment by offering GREENGUARD GOLD Certified products, participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Waste Wise Program, achieving LEED® NC Gold Certification for our corporate headquarters facility and achieving LEVEL®, BIFMA’s sustainability certification program for furniture.
