Metamorphosis
"Our furniture is good for tall people because it supports the reclined posture. Thus, a taller person simply stretches out their legs more than the average person. We have had people up to 6'10" get comfortable at the PowerStation FS."

    Desk Tip- Check to see if you desk has screw-type adjusters under the legs. Remove one of these and take it to the nearest hardware store and get longer ones in the same diameter and thread size. This should allow 1" to 1 1/2" extra clearance. Beyond that the adjusters tend to break. Another way to increase legroom is to get a desk without pedestals or have one or both of the pedestals removed from your desk. Most desks have removable pedestals. You then have to use a separate cabinet for storage on the side or near your desk.If you have a cubicle, see your facilities person about adjustments. Most modular office furniture has ample adjustment for worksurface height. Once installed, it's often difficult to get maintainence to make changes, however. The rule is, complain early and loudly.

Toilets/Water Closets
Go to a major plumbing supply and ask about "handicap" toilets. These are made mostly for commercial use to meet ADA and local handicap requirements, and have a 17"-18" seat height, much better for long legs (and bad backs). Expect to pay 50% more, but they are often in stock in white, expect a special order and limited selection for colors. This is a commercial item, remember.
