Great Chairs
Love the look. We have had some QC issues. We purchased five in 2012. All five have broken in the same spot.

Really appreciated expedfited shipping of these beautiful chairs!
We enjoy sitting in these chairs everyday. I almost didn't order them because I was told I couldn't get them in time for a big open house we were hosting. One call to customer service and turned out that they were able to expedite my order and we received all the chairs we ordered before our party! We were so proud and happy to show them off. Thank you, Herman Miller!

The chairs have made the stage.
The Corporate Meeting we had designed/just finished was created using a subdued natural color palette and more of a masculine edge. Engaging, modern and comfortable were the words used by participants at the meeting. Creating side stages that were used for an Interview style of presentation were hosted with the Herman Miller red-orange molded plastic chair. Those chairs popped and demanded attention. The center stage hosted panels using the same HM molded plastic in the Sparrow color. Simplistic and amazing!
