If you are working in an office or from your own home, on the computer, or doing desktop tasks, there are two most important things on which your work depends besides your professional skills: the chair and the desk.
While the office chair is easy to replace, the desk, if it is integrated into the design of your office, might get you some headaches especially when everything must be readapted and rearranged in order to fit it.
I remember a time, just a couple of years ago, when I was working part time for an IT company. I had to be at their office for two or three days per week and stay there for about ten hours without taking long breaks. Everything was ok except the desk and the chair. I asked for a new chair which I received promptly, but when I mentioned they should also change the desk, they told me the office was a rental and it was already furnished, and they cannot replace any piece of furniture without making changes to the lease contract. They did not want to amend the contract, so I had to sit at an uncomfortable desk that was too small for me, for about six months. The work would have been enjoyable, but the environment gave me headaches, I could not concentrate on the daily tasks and after a while, and I started to feel back pain, which ultimately led me to find a better job with a better work environment.
