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.


Polished Aluminum

For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.


For normal cleaning, vacuum upholstery fabric using an upholstery attachment. If further cleaning is needed, dry-clean or spot clean fabric with solvent cleaner.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Do not apply water or any liquid solution. Wetting the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage.

Vinyl Upholstery

For normal cleaning, wash vinyl upholstery with a soft cloth or soft-bristled brush lathered with mild, nonabrasive soap and lukewarm water. Before the surface dries, wipe with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue. This procedure may be repeated to remove stubborn dirt or stains.

Ink spots can sometimes be removed by washing with soap and water followed by isopropyl alcohol.

Do not use any cleaning method that is not listed above, as other methods may attack the vinyl and cause eventual degradation.


For normal cleaning, vacuum or dust frequently with a clean, dry cloth. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a damp soft cloth and a lather of any mild soap and a minimum amount of lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

For spots and spills, wipe excess liquid immediately with a clean cloth or sponge; let the leather air dry. If the spot is still visible, further cleaning may be necessary. Sponge the entire surface—seat, back, or chair arm—with clean, lukewarm water. Let the leather air dry; never use a hair dryer or other heat source to dry leather.

For stubborn spots and stains, apply a mild, nonabrasive soap solution with a clean, wet sponge. Rinse well and let air dry. For butter, oil, or grease, wipe the leather with a clean, dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather. Do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot.

Do not use saddle soap, cleaning solvents, oils, furniture polishes, varnishes, abrasive cleaners, detergents, or ammonia on leather; they will ruin the finish, causing it to become sticky and cracked.

Timeless, comfortable and supportive
Excellent build quality and timeless design. I purchased the chair in polished aluminum and MCL leather which is a classic combination. It arrived fully assembled and goes straight to work out of the box! I hesitated on my choice between this chair and the more padded version, but all I can say is that this one has just the right amount of padding and the nature of how it is constructed makes for a very comfortable seating experience and posture. The MCL leather is wonderfully soft grained and certainly contributes to the overall comfort. I am 6’ tall and the seat back and positioning is just right. i bought the pneumatic lift with extended height range which I find a boon when you swivel away from the desk and tilt back and put your feet up whilst on long calls. It also allows you to get the desk seating position just right. I also selected the hard floor or carpet caster option, as I have an office with a central rug over wood flooring. This is a must and allows easy transition across both floorings. All in all very pleased with my choice.

Timeless design meets Supportive Functionality
Beautiful and sleek, this chair is just as comfortable, and it provides posture support to boot, boasting a natural lumbar created by its intuitive design crafted by architects Ray and Charles Eames. It’s timeless design is right on the money in any environment from casual to high-fashion. I purchased 20 of these chairs over a year ago now for my company and they look, even with a little wear, as good as the day they arrived. I prefer these to the Padded Executive chair that I have in my own office, only because the padded Executive chair makes me want to take a nap it’s so comfortable. I’d also suggest going with the onyx messenger fabric, because the leather one I purchased for my home is wearing harder than the messenger fabric that I bought for the office.

What is the difference between the terms leather and MCL leather?
Wendy on Apr 20, 2019
Best Answer: MCL Leather, is a premium, semi-aniline, dyed leather with
100 percent natural full grain, which will acquire wrinkles and creases and
develop a rich patina over time. Color variations and surface marks are
an inherent characteristic in this leather. Due to its supple quality, cushions
upholstered in MCL may possess more inherent wrinkles, giving an
additional, lived-in aesthetic.

Standard Leather is superior to many other leather options on the market today. Like our MCL leather options, standard leathers are semi-aniline dyed, natural grain leather that wears beautifully. Standard leathers are thicker and not as soft to the touch as MCL leather.
What is the height from floor to top of the armrests? I'm looking to ensure clearance with the desk.
Asi . on Aug 12, 2019
Best Answer: The arm height with the standard height chair is 27.5 inches or less. With the extended height chair it is 30 inches or less.
