Herman Miller Aeron chairs were designed by Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf. These two designers wanted to develop the perfect chair, one that provided several benefits to the user all at the same time. In developing the Aeron chair, they did not start thinking about either form or material; their very first thought was what their chair should do for its user. With that thought in mind, they came up with the Aeron chair.

The Aeron chair has an ergonomic design. Meaning, it actually does something for the user's health. It is at the same time, functional. It can be moved and adjusted to suit the user's assumed position or posture. To add to that, the design of the Aeron chair actually does something to help our environment, since it is very durable and can be recycled. Also, the Aeron chair fits and accommodates any person, whether they may be small or large. Thus, it is very important to choose the correct Aeron chair size so as to make the most of your investment which ranges from $749 to $949 depending on the model (basic or highly adjustable) you prefer.

In order to determine the right size for you, refer to the Aeron chair size selection chart. The Aeron chair size selection chart helps you determine the right size to purchase based on your weight and height. For example, if you are 6'2" in height and you weigh 150 pounds, then, you should purchase a size B Aeron chair. If, on the other hand, you are 4'10" in height and you weigh 110 pounds, then size A is perfect for you.

The Aeron chair size selection chart is basically straightforward. The only problem arises when your weight and height fall between the numbers included in the chart which are all even (for the height). If it does, then you would most likely see that the chart is suggesting two sizes for you. Take the case of one who is 5'7" in height and weighs 220 pounds. In this case, the chart would suggest that he or she purchase a size B or C. When this happens, the best way to determine the right size for you is to refer to the seat depth of each size.

First, measure the length of your upper leg. Then, deduct three inches. So, if your overall upper leg length is 17 inches, then, after deducting three inches, you will have 14 inches as your seat selection size. Afterwards, choose the seat depth that is nearest to your seat selection size. In this case, it's size A with 15.75 inches.

You may be wondering why you have to measure your upper leg length. This is due to the Aeron chair's design which actually fits you. So, with your Aeron chair, your legs will be as comfortable as possible unlike other chairs which are either too high or low for you causing major discomfort for the user. Thus, when selecting your Aeron chair, refer to the size selection chart and to the seat depth as well.Learn more about Aeron chair sizes or read our Aeron chair review..
