While its iconic form has remained largely unchanged, the Aeron Chair has been remastered from the casters up. With the help of Don Chadwick, the chair’s original co-designer, Herman Miller has updated Aeron to incorporate more than 20 years of research on the science of sitting, as well as advancements in materials, manufacturing, and technology.

Sitting in one position reduces the natural pumping action of the muscles that deliver nutrients to the spine. As you sit in Aeron, however, the tilt allows the chair to move seamlessly with your body, so shifting between forward and reclining postures is smooth and balanced throughout the entire range of recline.

When Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick designed the Herman Miller Aeron Chair, they combined a deep knowledge of human-centered design with never-before-seen technology to create a task chair unlike any other. Now Aeron has been remastered in practically every way, resulting in a piece that better supports people and the types of work we do today. The 8Z Pellicle suspension seat and back is divided into eight zones of varying tension that cradle and support the body.

The PostureFit SL backrest supports the spine while maintaining the natural forward tilt of the pelvis, with adjustable individual pads that provide lumbar support and stabilize the base of the spine for a more powerful seated posture. Whether leaning forward or reclining back, Aeron supports you through the entire range of motion, keeping your movements smooth and balanced. Design doesn’t get any more civilized. Aeron is the perfect marriage of performance and design. Our best-selling office chair still defines expectations for ergonomic comfort more than 20 years after its debut.

What to consider before buying a white office chair?

When buying a white chair for your home office you need to first think about the comfortability of the chair. Secondly, you need to consider the general aesthetic of the chair in your work environment. Lastly, you need to consider the functionality of the chair relative to your body and work needs.

Let’s talk about comfortability first

Before thinking about the color of your chair, think about how it will feel to use? If you are working 6-10 hours a day in your chair, there is a good chance you will care how the chair feels on your back, hips, and backside. A good chair has built-in attributes that will make you feel better. We should certainly know! Having reviewed and tested hundreds of chairs, we know the basic and most important variables one should consider in regards to comfort. So what should you be mindful of? First, a chair needs to fit you and your body. Some chairs, for example, have weight constraints. Others have small or elongated backs. Some have head and neck support built in. Think about your body – are you tall? Large? Small? These types of general framing questions will help you identify the general size of the chair. The next variable to think about – irrespective of color – is how the chair will give you lumbar support while you are working. 

Lumbar support: worth its weight in gold

A chair is designed to be used for sitting. But if you sit for too long you can develop neck and back pain. An ergonomic chair can help you lean forwards or backwards, sit upright, enhance your posture, and take pressure off your joints. Adjustability, as we have written, is the name of the game. Your body is unique and you will want your chair to reflect that in its built-in features.

White is elegant

A white chair looks great in many different home offices. Once you have selected the chair for comfort and functionality, you can think about it in the context of aesthetic. If your home office has poor lighting and is dark, a white chair can bring a needed contract. If your home office is lighter, a white chair adds a nice complimentary color. White looks great with glass, wood, and metal desks and will enable your complexion to pop during video calls. White is a classy furniture color that is both functional and appealing to many people.

Features to look for in a white chair

In addition to the ergonomic features that are important to evaluate for your body, white chairs come in many flavors of color shades and material. For example, some home office white chairs are leather. Others have a breathable mesh back, usually made of fabric. These types of material will impact the brightness of the white shade and even the maintenance. A mesh back white chair might become slightly darker with prolonged use. A white leather chair, in contrast, will remain its original color for a longer period of time.

Some white chairs are fully white: their arms, base, and core material are all white. Other chairs we have reviewed are both white and grey or white and black. If you value a home office chair that is a solid color, you should select a chair that is monochrome. 

Warranty and Cleaning

White chairs require maintenance, especially if you want to keep them clean over time. Consider this and the warranty when buying your next white chair.
