Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to pay sales tax?

If an item is subject to sales tax in the state or province to which the order is shipped, tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each individual item. In accordance with state, provincial and local tax laws, the total selling price of an item may include shipping, handling charges, and discounts.

All sales tax calculations are subject to revision and are recalculated on the day your order is shipped. If your order has more than one shipping address, sales tax will be applied to the individual items in your order based upon the specific ship-to destinations.

No sales tax is collected on the purchase of Gift Cards. However, purchases paid for with Gift Cards are subject to sales tax in accordance with applicable laws.


How can I pay for my order?

For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit and debit cards.


When will I be charged for my order?

When your order is placed, the payment amount of your order is authorized and held by your financial institution. In the case of a debit card, the funds may be held by your bank until we send a request to charge your card. We will not charge your card until your order ships. All authorization holds will expire in accordance with the terms of your bank or financial institution.


I am a non-profit organization or government agency. How do I order without being taxed?

Please download and complete our tax exemption form in its entirety and email it back to us. Our Customer Engagement team will then contact you to place your order.


How accurate are the colors shown for each product?

Can I order a fabric swatch before making my upholstery selection for an item?

Warranty and Service


How do I schedule service?

If you need product service or repair, please contact the Herman Miller dealer, retailer, or website where you purchased your product. They will be able to make the final determination whether the issue is specifically covered under the warranty and eligible for replacement or repair.


What if I don’t know where I purchased my product?

If you're not sure where your product was originally purchased, please give us a call at 888 798 0202 or use our Contact Us form to provide the six digit "FO" (Factory Order) number and Manufacturing date located on the label of your product. With that information we can connect you with the appropriate dealer or retailer.


What if I am no longer close to the dealer or retailer from whom I originally purchased my product and want to request warranty service?

We can help you locate a dealer or a our Locator retailer near your current location. They will be happy to help you with your warranty request.


Where do I find my label?

Chairs – The label will be on the underside of the seat
Filing and Storage – The label will be inside the second drawer from the bottom
Tables – The label will be located on the underside of table top
Systems Products (panels, overhead storage) – The label will not be easily visible to you as we have designed it to be inconspicuously placed inside the panel system. Please locate a dealer near you and contact them to schedule a service visit.

We do have a Global network of Authorized Dealers. Use our Global Dealer Locator to find the dealer closest to you.


What if I purchased from an unauthorized reseller?

Because Herman Miller cannot guarantee the condition or authenticity of the components used for these products, they unfortunately are not covered by Herman Miller's warranty. However, by working directly with the reseller, it’s possible that you may find that they have other options for you to consider.
