Office Chairs & Stools

Perhaps the most essential component of a focused and productive office setup, an office chair or office stool can make or break your work experience. The best office chair or stool will suit your body’s needs, keeping you comfortable and adequately mobile for long hours; adversely, choosing the wrong office chair can leave you with fatigue and chronic pain that hampers your productivity. At Herman Miller, discover office chairs and stools for a wide range of uses and body types. Starting from scratch? Browse office desks as well to find the perfect match.


Best Office Chairs & Stools

When choosing a desk chair, start by deciding between an office chair or an office stool. Office chairs, also called desk chairs or computer chairs, typically have mesh, fabric, upholstered, or padded backs and seats that are shaped to the natural contours of the human body. Many work chairs have ergonomic features such as lumbar support to minimize back pain and enhance comfort and productivity. Some have padded arms, while others are armless. Most office chairs swivel, with casters and other adjustability features such as tilt adjustment, height adjustment, and arm adjustment. Swivel chairs with casters are an excellent choice if you have an active or collaborative work style; ergonomic office chairs are ideal if you spend long hours in front of your desk or suffer from chronic pain. To explore more ergonomic office chairs, shop performance seating at Herman Miller.


Office stools, on the other hand, are often far simpler. Typically backless or equipped with a very low back, office stools primarily have flat, padded seats that may or may not swivel. It’s common to see backless office stools in salons and studios where arm mobility is essential. Desk stools may have pedestal, tripod, or fixed caster-free legs, though some have rolling casters. Some office stools resemble high-back office chairs raised slightly higher off the ground, with footrests to support your feet. While the standard office chair seat height is between 16 and 21 inches, office stools may sit even higher, between 18 and 26 inches – great for taller workstations.


Herman Miller Office Chairs & Stools

At Herman Miller, you’ll find office chairs and stools for a variety of work styles. If you spend long hours at your desk and prioritize wellness and productivity, choose an ergonomic office chair such as the Aeron Chair, Embody Chair, or Sayl Chair. You’ll also find stool versions of these renowned ergonomic silhouettes – shop the Aeron Stool, Cosm Stool, and Mirra 2 Stool, among several others. If mobility is key, look for an armless rolling chair that swivels to enjoy maximum freedom of movement.


If you’re interested in a simpler stool, consider stools in the Magis series. Backless and caster-free, these office stools are simply functional, great if you’re looking for a no-frills office seating option.


Don’t forget to factor in appearance – the best desk chair for you will match the style and character of your office setup. The look of your office desk chair may be an especially important consideration if you frequently video conference, as the back of your desk chair can double as your backdrop. High-backed executive office chairs including the Eames Executive Chair and Taper Chair can make a striking impact in your office space. Leather office chairs and mid-century modern office chairs from Herman Miller, including chairs from the Eames collection and About A Chair series, can also provide sought-after sophistication.
