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.


Coated Metal 
Brushed Nickel Base

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.

Wood & Veneer 
Walnut Base

Normal cleaning

Dust furniture with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.

Once a month

Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.

Twice a year

Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. 

Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.

Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches

Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulates the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

Amazing showcase for artisan lightbulbs
I bought a bespoke retro bamboo filament light bulb, hand made in zurich, but I didn't have an exorbitantly priced fixture to put it in until now.

Great quality for the price
I actually bought this lamp. It's totally with the price. I threw out my other 4 lamps since this one works all over my 120sq ft studio in LA.

This lamp makes a fantastic reading lamp for those times you are 7 feet away from the nearest wall.
