Join us in celebrating the start of summer with the Herman Miller Summer Sale, 15% off, May 5- 17th, 2016. Includes products by Herman Miller, Magis, Mattiazzi and Maharam.
George Nelson, one of the original designers for Herman Miller, said it all in 1952, “a permanent collection designed to meet fully the requirements for modern living.” Yes, and yes!
Living and Lounge
As the lines blur between how and where we work and live, people are redefining their perceptions of what a space can be. This reality, remarkably envisioned in 1952 by George Nelson as “a daytime living room where work can be done under less tension with fewer distractions,” is deftly addressed with the Herman Miller Living and Lounge offerings.

In 1956 when Ray & Charles Eames were conceptualizing their Lounge Chair, Charles explained that the designers wanted it to have the "warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt."
The new Swoop Lounge Chair can move between home and office. The Swoop Collection, designed by Brian Kane, includes an ottoman, a coffee table and work side table.
Sprawl along the curve of the Swoop Plywood Lounge Chair, kick your feet up on an ottoman, or pull up a coordinating table. Lots of finish options, including five wood shell finishes and a highly curated collection of fabrics and leathers.
Dining and Meeting
Thoughtfully curated and carefully balanced, the full range of Dining and Meeting products navigate the many moments of living when we gather around a table—recognizing that the purpose may easily shift from sharing food to sharing ideas, from the leisurely to the long, from the elegant to the casual.
The Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group Management Chair, designed in 1958, is available in a large expertly curated list of fabrics and leathers. Questions? Ask our GRShop web team or the Gabriel Ross Showroom staff. They have samples of all the possibilities available.
The Herman Miller Eames Molded Wood Shell Side Chair is a beautiful expression of a timeless design. The Eames Molded Wood Side Chair introduces wood material and new technology to classic work by Charles and Ray Eames. Available in four wood finishes.
Nelson Bubble Lights
An assortment of lights in various spherical silhouettes, the Nelson Bubble Lamps add a touch of softness and luminosity to interiors. Designed by George Nelson in 1952, these elegant fixtures are fashioned from a sturdy, lightweight steel frame yet have a delicate, floating quality, whether in pendant, floor, table, or wall-mounted variations.
With their simple sculptural shapes Nelson’s Bubble Lamps have unique designs and an ingenious use of materials. They are proven to eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light. Available in a wide range of sizes as pendants, table lamps, wall scones and floor lights.
The Nelson Bubble Saucer Lamp is available in the traditional form as well as a criss-cross design.
Herman Miller's Task Chairs balance contemporary solutions with those introduced years ago.
Herman Miller wanted a totally new kind of chair. So they turned to the two designers who had produced the groundbreaking Equa chair and asked them to start with a clean slate and no assumptions. A bold challenge! So Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf began their work of thinking about what a chair ought to do for a person by consulting people who spend a lot of time in their chairs—older people in retirement centers. In 1994 Chadwick and Stumpf came to some solid conclusions and began work on the Aeron Chair. It became an instant best-sellers.
The Aeron Chair is available with so many different styles and options you can tailor it totally to your own sitting needs. From the Basic Aeron, to the Build-Your-Own, to the hard working Aeron Work Stool, GRShop has sold thousands of these chairs. If you need assistance or have questions about options or sizing and anything - please call or email the GRShop team.
The Sayl Stool, inspired by suspension bridges—structures that deliver the most using the least material—extend the distinctive look of the Yves Béhar-designed Sayl chair into settings that feature high tables or counters. The stool’s 3-D back structure supports you as you stretch and move, striking a healthy balance between support and freedom.
It’s natural for us to live and think and move beyond the indoors—a move made ever more possible with technology. Keeping in mind this desire toward more time spent in exterior spaces, Herman Miller offers solutions for outdoors: furnishings crafted for work and play using the same design philosophy as their interior pieces and prepped to withstand the elements.
Conceived as a low chair with a comfortably reclined posture, the outdoor version of the solid wood Medici Chair’s generous dimensions give it what designer Konstantin Grcic calls “an embracing confidence.” It works well as a stand-alone lounge chair or grouped in any outdoor space where people gather.
With its undulating, sculptural form, Ron Arad’s Folly Bench will spark conversations while providing a comfortable place to chat or have a nap. Molded in nearly indestructible polyethylene for both indoor and outdoor use, the bench’s seat and back surfaces merge seamlessly and encourage lounging any which way. The polyethylene form is rust brown.
