The Look

Herman Miller Aeron Chair ReviewThe Herman Miller chair with Mesh back was one of the first to create an office chair without foam support, so as a pioneer in its class, it knows it’s stuff. If you suffer from back pain already then this is perfect to alleviate the problems and make your working day more productive. If you don’t, then this is still a good choice as it will help to prevent future issues.

It comes in various sizes from A to C to fit different heights and weights so you have almost a bespoke made chair, just for you.

This chair fits in with any office design. Whether yours is minimal, functional, old school or pretty, this chair will look the part.

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is designed to eliminate pressure points and distribute your weight evenly. A lot of research and development has gone into perfecting this to achieve maximum comfort.



The Mesh material used for the back has many benefits, it keeps you cool and allows for optimum air flow regardless of the time of the year and it doesn’t sag, which you may find in other cheaper end products with the mesh backing.

A sturdy but lightweight graphite frame means that you have ultimate manoeuvrability, without the cumbersomeness of some more traditional office chairs.


Adjust-ability & Seat size

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair has to be selected based on seat size. Make sure you are choosing the right one for you this when you purchase. Choosing the correct size can be the difference between a really comfortable chair or something that creates or exacerbates a problem.

Have a look at the sizing information from Herman Miller to check your size – but I wouldn’t buy directly from there as they don’t offer the best price. The sizing is based on a number of factors including your own height and weight as well as the width of the back support and depth of the seat, so as you can imagine, getting this right is key to the suitability of the chair. You will end up with something that is fit just right for you.

Adjust-ability for the back rest is very fluid. And this is what you get at the top end of the market. You can tilt the chair fully back, but at the size C size, you get a tilt limiter included in the price. If you are looking for a higher back chair, try the Viva Office High Backed chair

The posture fit feature places the correct pressure on the pelvis so that your spine in encouraged to sit in the correct position and reduce slouching.

My verdict

The Herman Miller Aeron Chair is one of the best in class.

At this price you would hope so. Yes, this is an expensive chair, although, believe me, there are MORE expensive ones that this, I would go so far as to say that this one is mid range. I have selected it as the customer reviews and external ratings are very high overall across the board and across several sites. However, if this is a bit pricey for you, might want to try the Flash Furniture Mesh Chair which is similar but much more affordable.

If you are planning to spend a large amount of time in your office working away and if you are susceptible to back or neck problems, this chair is really worthy investment. And not just to reduce back problems, but for overall comfort and healthy working practices. The chances are you probably spend more time in your chair than you do in your bed, so selecting a really good chair is definitely worth it!

With a 12 year guarantee you really can’t go wrong. And with a purchase through Amazon, if you are not happy, you know they have one of the best return policy around, if not the best.

    Nearly one thousand dollars for a chair seems quite high. However, if it really is good quality and will last, then it could probably save me significant surgical costs for my ailing back (I would still be looking for a discount on the chair). I just learned a new word by reading your article, bespoke, meaning custom made. 🙂 I agree, in terms of style, that chair will fit just about anywhere. Nice video commercial to go with this. It’s always helpful to me when buying something online to see a working example. Sitting in front of my computer and studying, writing, etc., is all I do. A chair like this may be worth looking into. Thanks for the excellent review.

      Glad I could help! And with the new word too! It is expensive but as you say, it might be worth looking into if that is how you spend your time.

      Amazon are good to buy from too, as they have a no quibble returns policy, and this isn’t the kind of item you would find in your everyday shop! Thanks for your comments

    Great review on the chair. You hit ever key aspect that would be needed. I also like the look section so that way someone can actually picture it in their office. You don’t see that that often in reviews. I have sat in this chair at one of my jobs and it is quite comfortable!
