We believe furniture becomes classic when it demonstrates a lasting appeal, an original personality, and a simple, innovative beauty and function. Classics are living proof that good things endure; they have a way of evoking a particular time and making time irrelevant.
Committees and corporations don't design classics. Individuals like Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson and Isamu Noguchi do. Their view of modern design lies at the heart of Herman Miller's collection of modern classics.
Some of our recognizable classic products, such as the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, are part of the permanent collections at New York's MoMA and the Art Institute of Chicago. They have also been the subject of documentary films and books and are featured prominently in television series and movies.
Our mid-century modern furniture is made to order, and most products are handcrafted in West Michigan.
