Wrong color
The chairs have scratches on them which your picture does not display. I like the design but it is slightly misleading when somebody is purchasing a black chair

Response from Herman Miller
Due to the manufacturing process of the fiberglass, the fibers are visually apparent in the finished product. To better understand the fiberglass manufacturing process, please visit: https://www.hermanmiller.com/stories/why-magazine/shell-shorts/ . We apologize that the computer rendering of the chair does not showcase the true patina of the product and hope this video will help to better illustrate why this is present.

Love these stylish chairs!
Sturdy construction and attractive style. These are not an office desk chair to sit in long term, better for short term sitting. Also not the best for obese individuals as the width of the chair is limited.

Awesome design yet smaller than expected
I'm 6' but not that big, and the chair does feel a little tight yet still very comfortable with good cushion. The design is so tight with zero observable flaws. It looks even better in our family than I expected, and I can't wait to see how the fiberglass ages. Great value. I know that I'm not supposed to talk about customer service, but I had trouble deciding on all of the design options and the designer was an immense help. I love the black trim and black legs. I was gravitating toward chrome legs, and I'm so happy that I was pointed in a different direction.

I need new upholstery for the fiberglass shell still in good condition.

Original woven cover with thin foam backing worn through to shell is fitted with cord or wire. Replacement available?
