Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair : An excellent ergonomic chair – first class!

Excellent – very comfortable, even for long periods.

After years sat on rubbish chairs, i’m really not sure why i didn’t get one of these sooner.

The lumber support is the weak point of the char that is rather disappointing. It tends to split and break apart. Contacted customer support and another was sent as soon as a spare was available, but can see that it will happen again. Here are the specifications for the Herman Miller Aeron Task Chair:

  • 2-stage pneumatic tilt with tilt limiter and forward tilt
  • Height adjustable with pivoting armrests
  • Soft Vinyl armpads
  • Size B (medium)
  • Lumbar support
  • Graphite frame and base
  • Carpet castors
  • Classic Carbon with a 10 year warranty

Herman miller aeron – refurbished. Having a bad back, i needed a better computer chair and searched high and low before i was told about herman miller chairs. They looked to be exactly what i needed, but i was a bit put off by the high price for a new top-of-the-range aeron. On amazon’s pages i found one offered as ‘refurbished’ by a london-based company called ‘used office furniture’ and decided to contact the seller directly to try one out. I made an appointment at the shop in london road and, on arrival, found that he had put two chairs out for my inspection and testing. He took me through all the complex settings for the chair, but i needed little encouragement to buy – the comfort was amazing and the condition of the chairs on offer was hard to distinguish from new. I agreed the price and discovered that he was prepared to deliver by van within 48 hours at no charge. I returned home to complete the purchase via amazon and had an immediate response confirming the deal from the seller. True to his word, the chair arrived fully assembled at my home and is now making my time on the computer a pleasure – so much so that i have virtually abandoned the use of an armchair or sofa for relaxation or watching television. I’d rather sit in my aeron chair.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Wouldn’t be without this now
  • An excellent ergonomic chair – first class!
  • Worth the Investment

Every time i sit down it feels like it’s hugging me like a long lost friend.

I am not sure i would have ordered such an expensive chair without the strong recommendation of a family member who already has one. It has been an ideal present for my husband who is now on his 3rd unpublished novel in his study. He seems able to sit at his computer for hours comfortably writing. It took a long time coming but it was delivered by the team who make them and he was set up in it and the shape altered for his individual needs. He is tall and previously had back pain. Brilliant chair and the novel is very funny too.

    Wouldn’t be without this now. Highly recommended for people who sit at their desk a lot (programmers).

      1. An excellent ergonomic chair – first class. It moves with you so that your back is always supported. Yes it’s expensive but if you spend any length of time sitting at a computer then this is a sound investment in your health. My sitting posture has improved after only a short period of time. The more i sit in this chair the more i like it. There is a 12 year guarantee for most parts of the chair but this covers 24hr use which gives you some idea of the excellent build quality. Because of this these chairs hold their value pretty well so i know if i ever need to part with it i will get some money back too.

    1. My partner had two prior desk chairs last less than a year but i can highly recommend these aeron chairs. If you have a desk job you spend a lot of time in it so worth the investment. We’ve had the chair over a year, used every day for at least 12 hours and still looks brand new. Please note they come in 3 sizes, the sellter was most helpful in recommending we go up a size and returned with the replacement the next day.

  3. Mine is reconditioned and is as good as new. I feel that my long programming days have become more productive and my posture has improved.

    Excellent chair, not worth £900. I managed to snag this chair for £150 second hand (like new condition) and i have to say it’s excellent. The trampoline-like material is far better than padding because it’s breathable, so sweating/overheating (of myself) does not occur. The various features are all very useful, except for the tilt tension feature which seem to have no effect at all when i change it. I would never pay as much as £900 for this, hence the 4-star rating. I spend countless hours at a computer desk due to hobbies and work but £900 is still a bit excessive. Due to how it is made, there is almost no wear-and-tear on the chair apart from general scuffs. I would definitely recommend purchasing this chair second hand from ebay or gumtree. I found mine by chance in a newspaper ad. Ignoring the price, this chair blows everything else out of the water.
