I've been drooling over the Stokke Variable chair, and I can find places to order it online, but I really want to sit on one in person before purchasing. Do you know of any stores in San Francisco that carry it?

As far as we can tell, Stokke's action chairs are sold by only one retailer in the US, BackCare Basics, in Needham, Massachusetts. We've seen some web chatter of another place in New Mexico...but that's probably not very close to where you live. You may have to buy this chair on faith!
Speaking as a yoga teacher for a sec, the Variable does look like a great bet for your body. The design forces you to perch on your sitz bones, which will, over time, strengthen your core muscles and help create better alignment of your spine.
Does anyone know of a closer-to-home source for Cat?
