Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller furniture will provide years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain the finish quality of your Herman Miller product, please follow the cleaning procedures provided below.

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.


Plastic Polymer

Normal cleaning

Use a feather duster, a clean soft white cloth, or vacuum with a clean soft brush attachment as needed. For stubborn stains, clean the surface using a soft clean white absorbent cloth with a solution of mild soap and warm water. Wipe down surfaces with the damp cloth and dry with a clean soft white cloth. 

Avoid using glass cleaners, abrasive cleaning compounds, ammonia, or bleach; they may damage the surface of the plastic and result in discoloration. Make sure cleaning materials are free of grit and other foreign materials.

Coated Metal 
Brushed Nickel Trim

Normal cleaning

Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks with pre-softened paste wax, following the instructions on the label. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.

Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish.

A timeless piece
This is a classic design and suits any space. We are really happy with the quality and timeless design.

On a practical note the installation is a bit cumbersome mostly due to the fact the shade is directly connected to the light fixture and cannot be detached.

I love this light. The glow it produces is warm and inviting. An added bonus is that the light fixture looks awesome whether it is on or off.

My new bubble lamp has an unpleasant odor. Is this from spraying the plastic on the wire? Is it normal? Will it go away?
Carol M on Mar 17, 2019
Best Answer: The shades on Nelson Bubble Lamps are created by a spherical frame with perforated rings that are inserted with steel wires, a construction that retains its shape under tension. It is then sprayed with a resinous lacquer to form a fibrous web, and a final coat of plastic is applied, creating a smooth, translucent skin. The shade starts off in a liquid state and the compounds used dissipate as the shade dries, which can cause a slight odor. The scent potency will lessen quicker when placed in an open, well-ventilated area. Any compounds used have undergone testing to ensure appropriate safety standards. The scent or odor will continue to lessen over time.

Is this something best suited for an electrician to install or can one install it by oneself?
Garth on Nov 26, 2019
Best Answer: The Nelson Saucer Pendant Lamps all require hardwiring for installation which we would only recommend be done by a certified electrician.
is the cord length adjustable? I would like mine to be shorter.
NellE on May 5, 2019
Best Answer: The Nelson Pendants come with a 10 foot cord. You could cut the cord to make it shorter. The Nelson Bubble Pendants require hardwired installation. We recommend working with an electrician to cut the cord and install the pendant.
