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.
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.
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.
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.

I bought the chair sight unseen and based my decision on the style/reviews and measurements comparing to my current chair. My experience is that this chair is a little dated/small and not the most comfortable for a person of my size.
I understand that it is a 60 year old design/style but that doesn't mean it can't be updated. I'm a fit 5'11-190 lbs, the chair is marketed as an executive chair, if you workout or are taller than me forget it. I would size this chair at a medium and I am more of a large to XLarge. The depth of the seat should be deeper 2 or 4 inches, the height of the back should be raised and the armrests are less than an inch wide at the curve, 1 1/2" at the back bend and they seem a little off in where they are placed.
Simply put, they just need an updated larger version/option of the same design with more comfortable armrests and I would probably be thrilled.
The sizing and comfort issues are my mistake. I should have sat in the chair before I bought it as was suggested by my salesperson and my wife, but I just assumed based on the marketing, price and reviews that it would be perfect. It is not perfect and I'm surprised that HM hasn't updated this chair to reflect the changing demographics in the US.
I hope this review is helpful and your takeaway is to go sit in one before you buy or wait until HM starts making this chair by size. The style is a work of art and I don't believe the changes I am suggesting will take away from the beauty of the chair.
Anyway - I hope this is helpful as there are very few reviews of this chair to help you make the correct buying decision.
Otherwise, still love the company.

It appears that there is no option for having a black hood on the casters for non-carpet scenarios. If one were to configure the chair to have black MCL leather and graphite base and frame, the only thing that wouldn't fit in a noticeable way would be the chrome caster hoods. Is there anyway to switch out the hoods for the nylon casters?

Is the executive chair available in the Bingo fabrics?
We offer a wide range of fabrics and leathers that you can select for the chair. You may want to consider one of our leather or MCL leather choices, which is closer to the finish of Bingo than some of our fabrics such as Messenger. If you would like to request swatches of any of the materials, please give us a call at 888.798.0202.
