Default Herman Miller Aeron

I am considering an Aeron.

Anyone have one? How do you like it? Do you think there is another brand that is comparable?

What is a "herman Miller Aeron?"

Herman Miller used to be a brand name for boots. NOT BOATS......BOOTS!)

I think she meant amoeba. It's the new "thang" in pets. Too hot for them in Florida; we throw em in the lakes.

My legs are really bothering me since I've been over loaded with REO work. I am at this computer at least 8 - 10 hours a day, sometimes more. The only break I get is visiting the property and driving comps.

I've sat in an Aeron, but not the Embody. Anyone have an Embody?

I never knew Herman Miller made boots.

SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON OF BOTH

Related Sections: Galleries Reviews

Chair Wars: Herman Miller Embody vs. Aeron



Price: You can find an Aeron for around $700, but the Embody we tested is $1890. It's not twice as good +$490. Outlandishly expensive.
UPDATE: That's the price on one site, but the retail base price is $1429, as tested: $1599. Still outlandishly expensive, but not quite as much.

Try a zero gravity recliner like the Perfect Chair. A regular desk chair can only be fractionally better if it still has you in an up right position. A zero g chair with a laptop on you lap will actuall give you a real
change.

Thanks Mike! That was a big help.

Metamorphic ... not sure I could do the zero gravity thing and still concentrate. I'd probably fall asleep.

I have a Herman Miller Aeron. I like it. I also liked Steelcase and Turnstone when I was shopping chairs. I got my Aeron cheap from a going out of business dot.com.
