Want This Chair

There are quite a few benefits to being in the design industry. One is being able to see new and soon to be released products at places like ICFF. The other is getting personal tours of showrooms like Herman Miller. I had the pleasure of visiting their showroom today, and they were excited to show me the new Embody Chair. All I can say is WOW! When it comes to task chairs Herman Miller has in my opinion cornered the market with the Aeron and Mirra Chairs. But since their introduction, there have been other companies out there trying to elbow their way in. The Embody chair totally knocks the competition back about 5 years. I know that’s a bold statement, but I was convinced once I sat in the new chair. Designed by Jeff Weber and the late Bill Stumpf, the chair continues to push design envelope by being flexible, firm and supportive. It also features a wide seat for your ba-donk-a-donk. There is always a bit of adjusting with most task chairs and often times you’re left wanting just a bit more in some areas. When I was shown how to adjust the Embody, it fit me like a bespoke suit. I haven’t uttered those words about a chair in years. In addition to all of that, the chair is 95 percent recyclable, has 42 percent recycled content, and contains no PVCs. Another reason to be a bit more impressed about this chair. We don’t even carry the chair, but I hope we pick it up for our assortment for 2009.
