Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base
Visually striking and very flexible to use
Comfort is relative and to accurately assess the comfort of this chair you have to take into account the fact that it's made of plastic. I'm a smaller male; 5' 9" about 135 lbs and I am able to comfortable sit in the RAR for at least a couple hours. The back and arm rests as well as the waterfall seat front all work together to make it relatively comfortable. After a while though, the hind-end does start to become a bit numb.
The quality is very solid. The chair itself is very light and it's impressive how stable it is. I find that it's both bold but not over-bearing and compliments all of our other furniture. We can use it both in our formal living room and our bedroom. My wife (also quite small; 5' 1" 100 lbs) finds it comfortable enough to rock our baby to sleep. It's always been one of my favorite designs so I'm elated it's also so easy to live with.

We wanted to love this!
We wanted to love this chai! The overall look & craftsmanship are EXCELLENT.... No qualms there!
The seat sits incredibly low ( to the ground) ... Doesn't seem to have good rocking momentum .... Which could have been resolved in the design phase. Also the plastic that the bucket is made of is extremely hard ... Which makes sitting for more than 5 minutes kind of awkward & painful. Weird shape, we never could get comfortable in it ... Even with back pillows & seat cushions.
This was supposed to be an "ergonomic" chair ( I think)???
We ordered this online ... Then waited nearly two months to receive. I was sad to return this item ... Since we really wanted to love it!
Fantastic color selections

Don't like the plastic molded detail on seat
Truly love the design of the rocker, but wish Herman Miller stay true to the original materials... Really like the fiberglass look more than the plastic molded look. The plastic mold makes the chair look cheap and more toy like. I'm still a fan of Herman Miller classic chairs. I just want to give some constructive criticism
