Herman Miller’s Iconic Aeron Chair Is [Checks Notes] Over $500 Off
If you’re reading this from work, riddle us this: What office chair are you sitting in? There’s a good chance you can’t name the brand off the top of your head, much less the model, but all
torture devices desk chairs are the same after an eight-hour work day, right?
If you’re asking that question, you’ve never sat upon the throne that is Herman Miller’s ergonomic Aeron Chair. From the same company that brought you the iconic Eames Lounge Chair, this decidedly more work-focused seat is currently an unheard of $548 off (with free shipping to boot!).
Admittedly, this is an “open box” chair being sold on eBay, which traditionally signifies a product that’s been sold once, returned and is now being resold at a discount. But the seller, Madison Seating, also offers a 10-year warranty and touts 100% buyer satisfaction. So if you’re in the market, this is just about as good of a price as you’re going to get.
Other things to note: This is a Size B model, which is the most popular as it fits people between 5’2” and 6’6” tall and weighing from 130 to 325 pounds. Also, in case you’re not up on your Aeron history, it was designed by the dream team of Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, became the captain’s chair of choice for the dot-com boom and is in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Can’t say that for the sad seat you’re slouching in now.
