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.

Wood & Veneer

This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted.

Normal Cleaning 
Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.

Once a month
Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.

Twice a year
Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.

Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don’t place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it’s in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.Don’t let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with “rubber” cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.

Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches
Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

Other Damage
Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent.

A solid, attractive and functional office addition
I bought my Eames desk based on a recommendation. It's more than I'd hoped for. It's so cool, I invite friends into my home office to show it off. Not only does it look great, it's a solid desk that I expect will last considerably longer than its owner!

Where can I get replacement screws?

"Professional" movers disassembled my desk and when it was delivered the screws were missing. I want to reassemble my desk. Where can I get the necessary parts to put it back together?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2017
Best Answer: Replacement parts can be purchased through an authorized Herman Miller Dealer in your area. Please use our Find a Location link to locate the dealer closest to you.

Should you run into any challenges, please contact us at 888.798.0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
After initial factory assembly, is it possible to reverse the drawer's orientation?

That is, I need a left-side configuration for my current working space, but I would switch to a right-side drawer configuration in the future, space permitting. It looks like the parts should be reversible, but I'd like to be sure before I buy. Thanks!
A shopper on May 26, 2013
Best Answer: The Eames Desk Unit is structurally specific to the drawers orientation. Any modifications to the unit post purchase could compromise the integrity of the product and would void the warranty.

We do offer desks without storage that would provide flexibility and could accommodate a changing work space.
How wide is the desk drawer area

Can you give me the exact dimension of the space between the legs above the drawer. Width and depth
A shopper on Mar 23, 2012
Best Answer: The Eames Desk Unit has a width of 16 inches between the legs above the drawer and a depth of 28 inches. If there is anything else we can help with, please give us a call at 888.798.0202.
How thick is the table top?

How thick is the first layer, and how thick are the two layers (the wood and the black layer) together? Also, how far in before the black layer starts? I'm trying to determine if my table clamps will work.
A shopper on Nov 26, 2013
Best Answer: The birch plywood desktop layer is 10/14 inches (.714"). The black support beam is 1.25" thick. The black support is set 1" back from the back of the desk, and its thickness is 1.25". If you are looking to clamp over both the top and the black support, the total thickness would be 1.964". Attached below is a more detailed photo of the desk's thickness.
