Herman Miller

Herman Miller has been dedicated to design for more than 75 years. With a design legacy that began under the leadership of Gilbert Rohde and George Nelson in the 1930s and 40s, the company gained a worldwide following for its modern furniture collection by the early 1950s, with chairs, sofas and tables for home and office by designers like Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson, and Isamu Noguchi. These icons of modern design developed products that still endure today. And, through continued innovation at the company and a new generation of designers and ideas, the products that Herman Miller makes today will endure for decades to come. Herman Miller works for a better world around you. They do this by designing furnishings that improve the human experience - from pioneering the way for ergonomic office seating and furniture to stewarding environmental leadership in its business and manufacturing processes, product material usage and product life cycles. Herman Miller's longstanding commitment to the world around us continues to drive design solutions for the modern home and workspace. The company continues to develop its designer relationships with names like Yves Behar, Jeff Weber and Studio 7 adding lighting, storage and office collections to its catalog of design classics.

Charles + Ray Eames

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

In addition to his professional career, Mark has been an industrial design professor at Pratt Institute for 14 years. In his graduate furniture design class, students are responsible for the ideation, design, and execution of an actual piece of furniture. The emphasis of the course is to encourage students to develop their own individual point of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Respect for the Designer I adore my first Eames chair. I've been a student of chairs since embarking on furnishing my first apartment back in the '70's. So, I've followed Eames' designs, Thonet, Saarinen, with particular fondness for the midcentury aesthetic. As an added bonus, right after ordering, PBS featured the film that was made of the Eames Studio many years ago. I debated and debated on this purchase, but concluded that I wanted to respect the designers by purchasing chairs made by a licensed, reputable manufacturer. I will come back for more, for certain. And I will look first at this store, as they have very favorable policies and pricing. Delivery was fast and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic, reinterpreted. Herman Miller re-issued the classic original Eames fiberglass chairs in a molded plastic version. We debated whether to buy this new issue or get the original fiberglass chairs, which no longer bear the Eames brand and are now manufactured by Modernica. While there are pros and cons to either choice (besides being the original - if you are a purist - fiberglass has more texture making the color appear somewhat varied and thus richer) we opted for the Herman Miller's because we felt the molded plastic would be more comfortable, as it's less rigid (fiberglass doesn't bend) and easier to clean (we have small children). The chairs are indeed comfortable (they "give" slightly when you lean against the back), and can be cleaned easily with a wet cloth. They also look very nice and match our Saarinen tulip table - a classic combo that looks great in our modern apartment with white sleek cabinetry and dark wood flors. I wish Herman Miller would offer the dowel-legs in different colors (currently, they only come in a light beech, whereas Modernica has them in maple or walnut and also offers the metal part in chrome or black). The color of the plastic shell replicates the original mid-century color scheme quite nicely and was rendered pretty accuratly on the YLiving website: however, those colors may not be everybody's cup of tea, as the retro look is a tad drab (as is the case with the green side chairs) or very bright (even more so in the Modernica variant). The chairs shipped reasonably quickly (about 2-3 weeks) and didn't require assembly; we just took them out of the box. YLiving customer service was friendly and efficient (there were no problems to be solved, so that shouldn't be dificult) and the shipper easy to liaise with for delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Authentic Mid-Century Chairs Herman Miller's Eames molded plastic chairs are perfect in nearly every interior. They are now more sustainably produced and the matte finish is durable and easy to maintain in both residential and commercial environments. I specify them again and again for clients and just bought them for my own home. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An updated classic I just bought 6 of these chairs in white. I paired them with a warm, farmhouse table made of reclaimed wood. I love the juxtaposition of a the warm table with a more modern chair. The wood dowel legs make the chair so much more interesting than the plain metal legs. I also think these chairs are so comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I tracked down this chair as a gift to my girlfriend who had wanted one for ages. Design Within Reach and a couple other places offered it, but YLiving had the best price, and awesome customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Quality As Always from Herman Miller What can I say, it's a classic. The Production quality is excellent as it always is with Herman Miller products. Really like the walnut dowel legs with black wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, of course. Beautiful chairs. Except for the change to more environmentally friendly materials, the same great chair since the 1940's.
