Herman Miller ® began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world.

 from manhattan beach, CA– Verified Buyer

It does not look or feel like a top quality product. I wish I chose the polished chrome base, that might have made a difference. The chair is uncomfortable for work in excess of couple of hours- the seat definitely needs more support than mash.

luv it!

 from Bethesda, MD– Verified Buyer

I love this chair with baby blue mesh seating. I ordered it with a silver hardware and no armrests. The price is high, but lower than on other websites for the product with the same features. After applying a coupon discount and the rewards, I was very happy with the price I paid.Very stylish, light, and extremely comfortable.

Best chair ever!

 from Ocean City, NJ– Verified Buyer

We bought this chair in white and green as a replacement to a more traditional black office chair. It's crazy comfortable and looks amazing. Much smaller profile and the design is really clean. Thinking of buying another.

Love my new chair!

 from Oldsmar, FL– Verified Buyer

It's true the mesh fabric hugs and supports your body every way you move. And who can say anything but exceptional for Herman Miller design. Looks super cool in my office, not stuffy and ugly like some leatherfaux leather chairs. Must admit I wish I had got the rolling feet but I was trying to stay under budget. I got the white frame with gray seat.
