The best chair I've ever owned. Hands down.
Buying this chair without ever sitting in it made me nervous, especially at the price that I was paying, but I absolutely fell in love with it the second I sat in it. I never knew I could like a chair as I do my Herman Miller Aeron. If you're on the fence about this just take the leap, you wont be disappointed. Also, make sure you watch the adjustment video to ensure you set the chair up perfectly for you.

Best chair ever, with one minor quibble
I've had an Aeron chair since the autumn of 2003 when an RSI problem had me hire an ergonomics expert who was horrified at my desk, my computer set up, and my chair, which was one of those cloth 'executive' chairs one can pick up at a Big Box warehouse for a hundred bucks or so.

It was an expensive purchase, but one I never regretted. But after 16+ years, that chair began developing problems. The right arm pivot broke about 3 years ago, so I had to fix it in place with a bolt. Then the hydraulic lift part began to fail such that sitting in the chair, it'd sink several inches before stabilizing, so I had to set the chair high. Still, a good, comfortable chair.

This year, I decided finally to buy a new one, and the difference is night and day. Much more comfortable, and I love the new back support system. My aftermarket headrest fit perfectly on the back.

Here's my quibble with the new chair, and the reason for the one-star deduction: I wish the armrests were "stiffer" in both the front-to-back and side-to-side adjustments. I normally like the armrests as far forward as they'll go, but I'm frequently knocking them back several clicks, often while just sitting down or getting up. And I don't like how they'll pivot from side to side a few degrees before running up against the pivot detent resistance. They just feel loose, when I wish they'd just hold their position like the old armrests did (well, one of mine, on that older Aeron chair...).

Still quibbles aside, this is a big improvement overall and I'd gladly buy again.

I love my Aeron!
The chair is really comfortable. I light of having to work from home now, I decided to upgrade my office chair and I am sold on this one! It's got great back support and adjusts to exactly what I need ergonomically.
It's a bit pricey but well worth the investment if you plan on making a lot of use of your office chair.

I especially appreciate the fact that the chair has wheels that won't let the chair run away on you!
(it also looks great too)

Aeron Fabulous
I bought my first Herman Miller chair when I was a purchasing manager for a medium size manufacturing facility. I couldn't believe the support but I knew I was sitting on something revolutionary. Fast forward 10 years I have my own web design business - I purchase the Aeron. Cool in summer, comfortable and revolutionary the Aeron is an extraordinary chair. I love it and have used it for over 15 years. Remarkable, all I've had to replace were the casters and the air cartridge (at year 13). Reliable and revolutionary - that's the Aeron

Awesome Chair Overall
I love the chair, and it's very comfortable. The only problem I find is the edge of the base is sharp, and it cut my skins a couple of times. Maybe need to fix this issue in the future

Great chair
I purchased the Aeron chair after considerable research including reading reviews. The chair meets all my expectations. It is solidly built and appears that it will last many years. The chair is very comfortable and its adjustability makes it a winner for all members of my family.

Excellent chair
I was hesitant to spend $1k+ on a desk chair, but I work from home and spend hundreds of hours a month at my desk. Compared to the crap chair I had before, this is another world.

I can feel the strain that's been taken off my back with the posturefit feature. The 5 degree forward tilt is the greatest feature I never knew I needed until I had it.

Chair for My Boss
I ordered the chair for my boss, our company President, who came to me one day and stated he needed a new chair. I told him he needed an Aeron Chair, so he trusted me in ordering one for him. He loves it, and actually said "it's perfect".

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.

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.
What is the weight limit on the new Remastered Aeron?

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?
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.
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 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.
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.
Is there any difference in the material of the base amoung among "Graphite Base", "Dark Carbon Base", and "Satin Carbon Base" options?
. . on Feb 13, 2020
Best Answer: The Graphite and Dark Carbon Bases for the Aeron Chair will be a Glass-Filled Nylon material, where the Satin Carbon Base will be Die-Cast Aluminum.

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.

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.
