Deals on Herman Miller chairs? (Aeron / Embody)

mindphlux 25 10 February 22, 2012 at 08:22 AM
Like most slashdotters, I spend far too much time in front of a computer, and have been wanting an ergonomic chair. I unfortunately sat in a Herman miller Embody before looking at the price tag. I love the chair, but goddamn the price. Do these things ever go on sale, or refurb offers pop up?

Have you tried craigslist? I got my Aeron for $200 a few years ago and subsequently resold it for $300 when I moved. People hoard a lot of this stuff from their offices but craigslist doesnt have the market demand for $900 chairs so you can negotiate a really good deal.

A friend of mine just got one for around $550 from Madison Seating. So far she's been happy with it. To me, a desk chair is a desk chair (maybe because I no longer use one) and can't imagine paying that for a chair.

If you couldn't find the Miller chair for a decent price try buying 2 mesh back rest and 2 memory foam back rest(pillow). Place the foam inside the mesh. Set 1 on chair back and sit on the other. For less than $10, you have comfortable and decent looking chair.

I have a craigslist RSS feed going, but noone sells Embody chairs (understandably) - seen lots of good deals on used Aerons though, but I think I want to go with the embody.

Found one place that sells open box embodys for $900 - http://www.seatingbargains.com/He...ID=5489385

but sites like that always feel shady to me. And, 900 isn't that big of a discount over the normal 1100...

I've heard herman miller does a semi annual sale, maybe I'll just wait for that. Still gonna be expensive as shit though. Frown

Bump - it's been a while - if anyone finds a deal on an embody, I'd be very eager to hear about it.

I was just getting ready to post my Embody chair on the local classifieds website and figured I would do a search to see if there was any place on the web that might speed up the process. Came across this and figured I would make it known here before I post to KSL.com.

It is a black frame with pumpkin fabric, has very low miles(about a years worth of sitting), and is in great shape. Would like to get $700 for it but will consider all offers. Call or text for more info or pics.
