What's compact about a sofa that's 6 feet wide and seats three adults comfortably? Not your upholstery options; they're numerous. Not comfort either. Although the sofa extends only 2.5 feet from a wall, it offers support from shoulders to knees.

Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

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.



For normal cleaning, wet cheesecloth in a nonabrasive cleaner, like liquid dish soap, and rub the chrome component lightly until the original luster reappears. Dry the component with a soft cloth to remove any soap residue.

Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.


For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.

Vinyl Upholstery

For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains.

Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol.

Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation.

Nice and compact
We use ours up against a wall for television viewing in a small apartment. Works great for that. It's a bit firm, so consider that if you are wanting something to fall asleep in rather than on. Got ours in the Noble heathered gray fabric; glad to report that it is not scratchy at all. With a surfboard coffee table in front of it, it is a classic mod setting, a great blend of style and comfort. Highly recommend.

This product works well in compact spaces
It doesn't take up much space but let gives a lot to the seating experience. I wanted a place to sit within a corridor and this has worked out very well. It's clean and modern.

Excellent quality as well as beautifully designed!
Perfect compact couch! Using it in my kitchen instead of a breakfast table. I have a very large island that seats 6, so the compact couch is a perfect compliment to that.
