As a chair enthusiast, this is the best chair I have ever sat in.

Seat back an amalgam of poor choices
I've been using one provided by my co-working space for the past 6 months.

The seat back has poor materials choices and is poorly designed. The back is made out of a very "grabby" rubber that pulls up your shirt when leaning back. Further, the chair is very narrow at the top leaning to very poor rotational support for the seat back. To boot, they're not even very nice looking chairs.

Adjustable arms to purchase?
Can arms be purchased separately for these Sayl chairs? I have two without arms, and I would love to add them if possible.

Arm pads not up to standard
I purchased about 20 of these chairs so far. We love the design and the look of it, unfortunately, the padding that covers the arms breaks easily. it is really thin and soft at the tip of the arm pad and it bends every time you get up. All the chairs have the same problem of the tip breaking off. I would like to purchase new pads, but I cannot find availability at Herman Miller web site.

Great chair, just be cautious if over 6 ft
I'm 6'1, got the chair and loved the design and general feel. Had to return it unfortunately though. The top of the chair angles inward at the top, increasing strain on shoulder blades and center of the upper back. This might not have been a huge issue if not for the fact that the seatback just didn't feel like it came up high enough. Giving the Aeron size C a try, see if the extra 2.5 inches of seatback height are all I needed.

Nearly Perfect...
Very comfortable chair. I ordered it online and got the Hardwood Safe Wheels, Seat Length Adjustment and Arm Height. But, the bummer is that there wasn't an option to have the Arms swivel out to the side. I wish there was ;(

The chair is great, but noisy
The fit and feel are really good. The squawks that it makes when leaning in to the arm rests or leaning back are really annoying. I should send it back.

I have had two Herman Miller Sayl Pedestal chairs for two years in my own office as an experiment. I could not be more pleased. Visitors all comment how much they love the chairs. I love the design. I love the feel. When we need more chairs we are definitely going with more of the Sayl. Keep it up Herman Miller--the leader in design for sleek function!

This chair is excellent. The arm rests are made of a plastic material, which feels rubbery. Consequently, the arm rests are very comfortable and make me feel fancy. The back is similarly comfortable because it distributes your weight in a very structurally sound way. The main event for a chair, the seat, is padded with very firm, yet comfortable material. It's an ideal firmness for a chair to work on. The levers are very intuitive; and they function well, in contrast to most chairs I have interacted with in my 27 years of life. Lastly, the wheels are good. When I go over my headphone cords, the cords do not get trapped in the wheel. Lastly, the style is simply superb. It's a beautiful chair.

This chair improved my posture while using the computer. Bought primarily for gaming.
Very comfortable made in the USA chair that is well made. I love the customization options when ordering and the adjust-ability the well equipped versions have.

Can I leave off the arms of the Sayl Chair? It appears that there are stoppers you can put in where you would normally attach the arms (to fill in the hole), but I'm not sure if these come with the chair or if it is possible to order them separately.
