Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.


Polished Aluminum

For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.


For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.

Vinyl Upholstery

For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains.

Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol.

Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation.


For normal cleaning, vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a damp soft cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

For spots and spills, wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If the spot is still visible, further cleaning may be necessary. Sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather.

For stubborn spots and stains, apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry. For butter, oil, or grease, wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot.

Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.

Wonderful chair
Wonderful chair and great service by Herman Miller!

February 15, 2017
replacement chair.
I replaced a Herman Miller Ergon chair that I have been sitting in for 20 years, which I absolutely loved, with the new Eames Chair and I am totally pleased!

Lack of Quality Control hurts otherwise great product.
We have several hundred of these chairs at work and they are all gorgeous. The one I got however, came with an extreme crease in the back on the leather. So extreme that it is noticably felt when sitting and sticks out in an unsightly way. Since its made of leather I kept it thinking it would soon conform to my back and lay down. I've been using the chair for four months now with no improvement. Also, on the aluminum arms, one side it nicely finished while the other has very rough grind marks, as if it missed a step of the finishing process. I really can't believe they sent this chair out of the factory. It is not up to their typical standards. It work fine, but clearly looks wrong the minute you see it.

Beautiful and Solid
This chair is a piece of art. I wish I better understood the need for an automatic handle to adjust the chair and not the manual version, but the chair does do the job!

Is this Don Draper's chair?

This looks like the chair in Don Draper's desk from the TV series Mad Men. I suppose since it was originally designed in 1958, it would make sense. The only reason I noticed it was because how modern the chair looked and was impressed that a chair like this existed back then, the set designers take care of details and would not let something like that slip.
A shopper on Jun 14, 2015
Best Answer: Don Draper from the show Mad Men is seen sitting in two different Eames office chairs: Aluminum Group Executive chair and the Executive chair. The Eames Executive chair (aka Time-Life chair) will have the arm pads and soft seat and back. The Eames Aluminum Group Executive chair will have the thin seat and back pads without arm pads on the armrests. Below are links to the two different product pages:
