Great Chair
Had this chair at work for a while.
Now that I have to work from home due to pandemic, it became painfully obvious that I need the same level of comfort at home.
Received this chair today and the difference is immediate - this chair takes away all the discomforts and allows me to fully concentrate on my work.
Pricey, but worth it for me.

23 years and counting
I purchased this Aeron chair back in 1997 through a client that had a large order. I think it cost me $500. It has been a life saver for my back. I sit for much of the day and in an ordinary chair, the curve of my lower back goes out instead of in. The Herman Miller chair preserves the proper inward curve in the lower back.
Everything on the chair works except fo the support pad that goes across the back of the chair, which I hope to replace. I'm surprised the hydraulics still work as well as the tilt control and the firmness adjustment.
I've retired and brought the chair home from the office. Thanks for making a great product.

delay delay delay!
Ordered in May, Said to be shipped in 1 week, estimated ship time: 3 weeks, now, it's pushed back another 3 weeks. Don't believe their estimate. They gave excuse of pandemic, but by May they should have given a good idea. Need this chair for my back pain but there is no hope. Also the customer service is bad with no intention to help.

Response from Herman Miller
I'm so sorry for your experience and the delay in your order. Due to the situation with COVID-19 our manufacturing was closed for 7 weeks. Unfortunately, this caused for some delay in shipments. The good news is our manufacturing has recently resumed and is working towards producing again at full capacity. I'm reaching out to you via email to learn more and touch base on your order.

No more back pain!
I bought this chair when I started to WFH every day dur to the pandemic; the chair I had at home was fine for occasional use but not so much for everyday -- I started having back pain.
Since we have Herman Miller chairs at the office, I decided to get one of these. No regrets!

Great quality, very comfortable. Wish that the seat slid forward, however.

Great for use during pandemics
Received this at home in time for the coronavirus shut down and just in time to spare me the back pain caused by long hours in my previous desk chair. Highly recommended.

I love my chair. The only thing I would fix is how to prevent dust from accumulating underneath the chair and in all of the crevices in the chair. Otherwise, my spine has not been happier.

Finally have my dream chair!!
I've had the opportunity to use the Aeron chair at several employers over my twenty plus year software development career. From the first time I sat in one I've wanted one for home. I finally have it, and it's better than I'd hoped for!

Great chair, but too low!
You know the usual: great construction, great back posture support, comfortable mesh. I kept the regular wheels on my hardwood floor, but I haven't had any problems.

The biggest issue: the seat, at it's highest, is about an inch lower than any other office chair I compared it to (including other HM models). I have a B, but the C is no higher (see the chart on the HM Aeron page). This chair only goes to 20.5", vs., say, a Cosm (21.4"). Note that the Mirra also only goes up to 20.5". So, if you have long legs, you may find this chair to feel low. It also makes you hold your hands higher than you may feel comfortable if you have a "standard" desk height of 28"-30".

For this much money, the chair is amazing, but I really wish it was an inch higher.

Great chair, saving my back
Working at home one day a week, I've been wanting to buy a good desk chair for a couple years. Now that I'm working from home every day, I finally did. I was torn between the Aeron and the Cosm, but because I couldn't go a store and sit in either currently, I decided to take a chance on the Aeron because of its greater adjustability. I'm very pleased with my decision. I'm in the chair 8+ hours a day, taking breaks of course, and not experiencing any discomfort at all. I have to figure out how to get my company to buy one for me once we all return to the office.

Arm Adjustments on the Aeron Chair

What is the difference between height adjustable arms, adjustable arms and fully adjustable arms?

My guess is the following, but I really need to know!

Height = just up and down?

Adjustable = in and out (meaning toward seat base or out further away from seat base?

Fully Adjustable = both?

Thanks,

Cynthia
A shopper on Oct 20, 2016
Best Answer: The differences between the arm options are below:

Height-Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat. This gives you the ability to support your arms at a comfortable height.

Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat and are able to pivot 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward.

Fully Adjustable Arms adjust from a height of 6.8 inches above the seat to 10.8 inches above the seat, slide backward and forward over a range of 2.5 inches, and pivot 15 degrees outward and 17.5 degrees inward.

What’s the difference in seat width of B chair also C chair?
Debbie S on Jan 25, 2018
Best Answer: The seat width for the B-size Aeron chair is 20.25 inches. The C-size Aeron chair seat width is 21.6 inches.

We can be reached at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or 888.798.0202 if you have any additional questions.
On the cusp between B and C - which size?

I am just a hair shy of 6 feet, 5'11+3/4" let's say, and 175 pounds. I'm curious whether B or C is right for me; all of the Aeron chairs I've sat on in the past were C I believe, but I'm wondering if they were always actually a little large and the chair is "supposed" to feel a bit more snug. Or at my size, is C definitely the way to go?
A shopper on May 23, 2017
Best Answer: The Aeron size B chair is recommend for 5'3"-5'11" and the Aeron size C chair is recommend for 6'0" and above.

The Remastered Aeron Chair has zonal support in the back and seat which will allow for a "more snug" fit than the Classic Aeron Chair.

Based off your height, we would recommend the C size Remastered Aeron Chair.

Adding PostureFit

I know it is recommended to visit an authorized dealer but is it possible to buy the PostureFit addon subsequently and install it at home myself?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2016
Best Answer: The PostureFit SL requires a back change as there are two holes at the bottom of the back that Posturefit SL is anchored to. The Classic Aeron PostureFit cannot be added to the new Aeron Chair due to the different dimensions of the Classic vs the Remastered version.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.

A shopper on Oct 30, 2016
Best Answer: The Aeron chair size B and C is tested and warranted up to a maximum of 350 lbs, which is an increase of 50 lbs over the classic Aeron chair. The size A is tested and warranted up to a maximum of 300 lbs.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888.798.0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
what is the difference between lumbar support and posturefit support?
BARBARA O on Feb 20, 2020
Best Answer: The Adjustable Lumbar Support is a horizontal manual pad you can adjust vertically from your mid to low back positioning.

The PostureFit SL support aids in supporting the lower back area (Sacrum region), that helps achieve healthier posture and improved lower back comfort. The bottom support pad will have adjust-ability with how much tension is being applied and the top pad is offsetting lumbar support.

Can I replace the carpet casters with the hardwood casters? Can this be done at home, by myself? Thank you!
Amanda M on Aug 28, 2019
Best Answer: The casters can be changed. We recommend gently laying the chair on it's side and pulling out the old casters. Depending upon age you may need to wiggle the caster as you pull firmly. Once the old casters are out you would push the new casters in.
does the wheel lock?
nancy on Mar 26, 2019
Best Answer: The wheel on the Aeron chair does not lock. If you choose the 2.5-inch Hard floors or Carpet Roll-Away Resistant Casters with Quiet Roll Technology the chair will be harder to push when the chair is not in use. When the user is sitting in the chair it will roll freely.
do you have chairs that come with headrest?
A shopper on May 3, 2017
Best Answer: Any headrest versions of our chairs are not manufactured or supported by Herman Miller. The addition of an aftermarket attachment to the chair may void the warranty and potentially void the full ergonomic benefit of the chair.

Our High Performance Seating - Embody, Aeron, Mirra, and SAYL - support the spine at the sacrum (via PostureFit) and thoracic. By doing this, we stabilize the lumbar and cervical (neck). When you are sitting in the chairs correctly, your spine and neck are aligned and a headrest is not needed.

If there is anything else we can help with, please contact Herman Miller Store Customer Care at 888.798.0202.
Can I specify the color of the pellicle material? A friend has "Carbon Classic Pellicle" but I do not see this option.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2017
Best Answer: No, Pellicle colors and patterns from classic Aeron Chair are not available on new Aeron.

One of the benefits of new Aeron is the simplification in specifying the Pellicle. Even though Pellicle is still a specification step, the Pellicle �color� is tied to the frame finish you choose and there is only one option presented when you arrive at the Pellicle step.�

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
what is the weight limit of the chair?
Eric S on Jan 21, 2020
Best Answer: I am an avid mountain biker and this ways significantly more then my 29 pound mountain bike which i can throw in my truck no problem. I can barely get this chair off the ground.
Does the mineral color chair stain with darker pants?
Beth C on Nov 13, 2019
Best Answer: The lighter material (mineral) is more susceptible to dye transfer from darker pants and jeans. Should this occur, this "crocking" will vary based upon the dye used in the clothing.
How to determine size?

Veda S on Jul 31, 2019
Best Answer: The Aeron chair can be purchased with glides instead of casters. If you contact us at 888-798-0202 we'd be happy to help you order the chair with glides.
Which is the best model for back pain? And could you send link that allow me to choose the options I want? Thank you
Harvey J on Jul 12, 2019
Best Answer: The best choice of chair for back pain can vary from person to person. If you contact us at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com we'd be happy to discuss more personalized options. Our two most popular chairs for back support are the Embody chair and the Aeron chair with the added PostureFit SL support.

Here are the links where you can view the different options on these chairs:

I’m 5’11”, 210lbs. I have a 2012 Aeron size B at work. I love the chair, and am going to buy one for my home. I’m debating weather or not I should get the C size, based upon my body size. The B fits, but I’m wondering if C is going to be a better match?
Anthony L on May 29, 2019
Best Answer: We typically recommend the C size chair for anyone 6 foot or taller. Being 5'11" you are on the border and could go either way depending upon your build. One recommendation we have that can help choose a size is in the seat depth. We typically recommend about 2 inches from the back of your knee to the edge of the seat. The B size chair has a seat depth of 17 inches whereas the C size is 18.5 inches.
I need to purchase a chair for an individual who has a large behind and a high waist, she requires an adjustable lumbar support a little higher than normal. This individual is approximately 5 feet 4 inches and weighs approximately 240 pounds. Do you have any recommendations?
sandra a on Apr 24, 2019
Best Answer: Based on her height I would recommend the Aeron chair in size B but I think the Celle chair would be more suitable. The Celle chair has a wider seat making it more accommodating for all sized users.
