Office Chairs, Furniture with Style

When it comes to form and function, the office chair has come a long way. The award-winning Aeron chair, introduced in 1994, raised the bar in office comfort. Today, the design classic has some innovative company.

Aeron

A classic in contemporary design, it’s still popular and has undergone some modifications over the years. An Aeron workstool was introduced a year ago.
