Not too happy with this purchase
The color of arm-pads is not matching with the color of the chair frame. Never had this problem before. The customer service didn't help either. I wanted to return the chair, the customer service person said HM would send me a return label, but have not received it yet even after more a week long waiting.

Best chair for office!
I changed my desk from counter height to standard desk height... I previously used the Aeron Stool. The Aeron Chair was a natural choice. The Aeron is the most comfortable chair I have ever used and is rock solid for the abuse I dish out to it!

Expensive, but worth the cost.
Had one at work. Bought one for home after retirement.
Good build quality. Comfortable. Adjustable. Open-weave seat fabric breathes. Looks good. Casters roll well.
Expensive but worth the cost.

broken caster
I purchased this chair for my husband for Christmas. It arrived with a broken caster. It tips without that caster so I requested a new one. After several emails to the salesperson, It has yet to be replaced making it unusable. Working on returning it now as it seems as though we will not be getting a new caster any time soon. For such an expensive chair I had assumed that customer service would be outstanding. Disappointed. I should have listened to my husband and gone to Office Depot for a less expensive office chair.

Perfect Chair
I just received my Aeron chair from Herman Miller their online store. My research led me to Herman Miller specifically the Aeron, I had a chance to visit a Design Within Reach in Paramus NJ and actually sit in the chair. I was able to sit in the Aeron while the store represrentative served me coffee and explained the various adjustements of the chair.
I am writting this review from my Herman Miller Aeron and recommend this chair 100% !!!

Finally a comfortable chair!
My husband got his Aeron Chair as a gift from his mother over 15 years ago, and he is still using it, finally, we got one for myself. I ordered the small one since I'm 5"2' and it fits just right and no more lousy old chair, mostly I feel complete back support which is very important especially if you sit for a long period of time.

Okay, but not sure if I know all I need to know about it.
I looked on the web to understand all its operations and gadgets. Yet I have not really understood how to fit it to my liking. Can I go to a showroom and get some instructions and information? Or what do you suggest? Thanks.

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.

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.

If there is anything else we can help with, please contact Herman Miller Store Customer Care at 888.798.0202.

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.

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.�

As per the size reference chart on the Remastered Aeron page, it seems that the upper weight limit of the Size C its 350 lbs, is this correct? This means that the new Aeron has an increased weight limit over the old one, correct?

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.

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.
Are the fixed arms only installable at a single height? Or is it possible to re-install the arms at a different height manually with tools after the fact?
adam spurgin on Apr 5, 2019
Best Answer: The fixed arms on the Aeron chair are set at one fixed height. The fixed arms are 8.5 inches above the seat. The cannot be removed and installed at a new height.
I Have Chemical Sensitivities, So I NEED To Avoid Formaldehyde. Do You Use Any Flame Retardants, Anti-Microbials, Dyes, Or Other Treatments That Use Either Formaldehyde Or Formaldehyde Donors?
