This chair is so lightweight and moveable you can use it to fill in where ever it's needed...I use it at my desk but with guests here for Christmas I rolled it into the livingroom and it's comfortable. There are many good Colors to choose from. Yliving seemed to have the best price.
Very comfortable and excellent.

I really like this chair. It's very comfortable so I don't have any trouble trying to find comfort. It suits my desk and it's also very good for my body. My back is recently having some problems but this chair is making my back straighter when I work. Overall, this chair is very excellent and it's worth 5 stars.

Our office loves the Caper stacking chair. Our staff meetings for a staff of 70 can be set up in 7 minutes, a far cry from the hour set-up time before the stacking chairs. I placed my order over the phone and it was so easy. The chairs' colors matched the swatches available and are very subtle and calming. The back support is fantastic and keeps everyone comfortable and far from sleepy.
Great product. Being used as a desk chair and very comfortable.

Needed a chair for my sons desk. Looked around and saw this chair in an office cafeteria. Chair was very comfortable and wheels moved easily. Ordered on-line from Y Living. Very easy process. Delivery was promised in three weeks and chair arrived in 5 days. Going to order another one for my daughter from Y Living. Staff was very friendly.
Caper stacking chair

Not a good desk chair...because you end up leaning back due to the design and end up arching you back. So disappointed. Wish I could return but living is not allowing a return on this item. I'm not recommending this chair for a serious desk work!!
A very comfortable office chair.
By: Diane , Homeowner (Columbus)
Just an all around great office chair. Wide enough with a nicely curved seat bottom for a wide range of sizes. Seems sturdy and well made. I had casters added for hardwood floors and they easily glide without fear of scratching. A great designed chair for the this price range.
Lightweight and functional

I ordered the Caper stacking chair in brown for use as a computer chair in a home office that's also used as a guest room. It's very comfortable, easy to move and glides smoothly on the carpeted floor. I like its high-tech style which doesn't dominate the space. The Caper stacking chair is perfect for our needs. I would also like to thank the person who handled my order. He was very helpful in explaining which casters to order and how the different gray of the materials worked together.

The color choices can be difficult to distinguish on a monitor; but I am thrilled with the result. The neutral colors I selected (Evergreen, Chocolate) demonstrate both deep value and chroma, for an understated appearance to the chair that complements its space. It is attractive and comfortable.
Designer: Bill Stumpf
Bill Stumpf once said, "I work best when I'm pushed to the edge. When I'm at the point where my pride is subdued, where I'm an innocent again. Herman Miller knows how to push me that way, mainly because the company still believes -- years after D.J. De Pree first told me -- that good design isn't just good business, it's a moral obligation. Now that's pressure."
Stumpf's association with Herman Miller began in 1970 when he joined the staff of the Herman Miller Research Corporation. After establishing his own firm in 1972, Stumpf created the Ergon chair, the first ergonomic work chair. Later, in collaboration with Don Chadwick, he produced the groundbreaking Equa and iconic Aeron chairs. He also was principal designer for the Ethospace system.
"I enjoy myself, and I do it through design," Stumpf declared in an interview a few years ago. "I love beauty, and I love the availability of beautiful things and useful things immediately around me."
When he looked around, though, too often he saw design that "denies the human spirit," architecture that acknowledged money and not people, offices that were "hermetically sealed in artificial space." He constantly battled against such designed indignity -- a battle that began in the 1960s at the University of Wisconsin.
"Everything goes back to those days at the University of Wisconsin," he said recently, referring to the postgraduate years he spent studying and teaching at the university's Environmental Design Center. "Everything was about freeing up the body, designing away constraints."
It was there where Stumpf, working with specialists in orthopedic and vascular medicine, conducted extensive research into ways people sit -- and the ways they should sit. In 1974, Herman Miller commissioned him to apply his research to office seating. Two years later, the Ergon chair was introduced.
During his lifetime Stumpf -- a key figure in Herman Miller's transformation into a research-based, problem-solving innovator -- received numerous awards for this work. Most recently, he was named the winner of the 2006 National Design Award in Product Design, an award presented by the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
