The Aeron Chair by Herman Miller
One of the most coveted office chairs available, the Aeron Chair is an icon because of its style, its ergonomic comfort and its nearly mythical status as “the best office chair” on the market.
But can you get one for sale and without having to spend a $1,000?
The answer is yes! Office Furniture 911 sells Used Aeron Chairs at discounted prices far below full, retail prices — generally in the $500 to $600 range or less.
What Should I Expect to Pay for a Used Aeron Office Chair in Tampa?
Whether you’re shopping at an office furniture store in Tampa Bay or shopping online, you can expect to pay from $750 to over $1,200 for your Aeron Chair. That may not include taxes, shipping and assembly costs. Cost range is dependent on a variety of factors, especially the initial configuration of the chair.
On the Herman Miller website (Aug. 1, 2016) the price ranges from $729 to as much as $1,345 for a fully custom chair that ships in 4 weeks and comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and 12 year warranty. Shipping is free.
What’s the cost when buying from Office Furniture 911?
Used and refurbished Aeron Chairs can be found from at little as $450 to as much as $750 depending on a variety of factors, specifically:
Age — how old is the chair you’re looking to buy? The newer the chair, the more you’ll spend.
Condition — while Herman Miller makes a very durable chair, the condition is really dependent on how it was used by the previous owner. Some chairs are treated rougher than other, while some pre-owned chairs essentially look brand new.
Features — the Aeron Chairs, when bought new, offer a variety of feature. Tilt features, adjustable arms, armpad design, chair size, back support and caster type are all customizable. Be sure to have an account rep walk you through the features of any chair you’re looking at. Some Aeron Chairs will be ‘more basic’ than others that are fully customized.
Seller — used chairs can be found in many places, with each seller wanting open to various pricing structures and delivery methods.
Bulk buying — if you’re buying multiple chairs or other office furniture, deals can be made of course.
Other factors — are their shipping costs involved? Installation and setup?
All of these factors can impact the price and may slow down the buying process. Be sure to understand that if you’re looking for a specific customized of a used Aeron Chair that you spend some time looking — or get a free education from our office furniture account reps — we’d be happy to help.
What Else Should I Consider?
As a business owner or the person at your company tasked with purchasing the new Aeron chair (or chairs) you’ll want to consider two main things.
First, what is the total budget you’re allowing for office chairs? Are you buying just 1 chair for the boss or are you outfitting the entire office and all employees with these Herman Miller classics?
Buying 10 used Aeron chairs at $550 each is a $5,500 investment. Some companies may justify that.
For example, a CPA firm in Clearwater may believe that because their accountants spend a significant amount of time sitting at their desks each week, the investment is worth it. These ergonomic chairs help making sitting much more comfortable — that’s something that could help alleviate stressed backs and potential missed time at work.
Other companies may not be able to justify that expense. For example, if you’re buying new office chairs for a call center near the Tampa airport, you may set a budget that only allows for a maximum spend of $75/chair. We have many quality seating options available in that range.
What makes Aeron Chairs so Good for Tampa Office Workers?
Very simply, they are absolutely comfortable. When you sit in an Aeron Chair, you can almost feel the Herman Miller engineering at work. The folks who designed the chair were completely focused on creating one of the best office chairs for today’s modern office worker who spends so much time parked behind a desk.
The reality is that the ergonomic features of the chair help just simply make it easier to sit for long periods of time. And if your job requires 5 – 8 hours of desk time a day, you’ll really appreciate it.
And equally important, they’re tremendously durable office chairs. So, when buying a pre-owned Aeron office chair, you’ll feel secure knowing that the structure and comfort of the used chair will help make it last for years.
Aeron Chair feature include:
- Ergonomic design
- Super comfortable seating
- Woven mesh back & seat (keeps backs and bottoms cool)
- Reliable and durable design
- Clean, modern styling for any office
- Environmentally friendly
- Easy to re-sell (even when selling a used chair)
As Herman Miller says on their own website:
It’s the most well-known ergonomic office chair ever made. With good reason. As the first to replace fabric and foam with a breathable, woven suspension membrane—its innovative Pellicle seat and back—Aeron distributes your weight evenly, eliminating pressure points and heat buildup. The Kinemat tilt lets you recline fluidly, and PostureFit puts support where you need it most while seated—at the base of your spine.
Why are used Aeron Chairs so Popular in Tampa Bay?
The chairs are popular for so many reasons — like the ones detailed above. We wonder sometimes if the ever-present heat here in Tampa has a lot to do with it. That mesh-like back and seat really do allow for airflow which can keep you cooler throughout the day.
We’re asked lots of questions about the chairs, including:
- How do I buy a cheap Aeron Chair?
- What’s the cheapest way to get one?
- Is it worth buying a pre-owned Aeron Chair?
- Can I get a discount for buying more than 1 chair?
- Can I trust the seller when buying a used Herman Miller chair on Craigslist?
- Can I get on a waiting list for a used Aeron office chair?
- Is an Aeron Chair really the right type of office chair for me, my team or my employees?
What is the Size of the Aeron Chair?
The Aeron Chair comes in 3 sizes, each of which is created to give you the most adjustable and comfortable experience.
As you can imagine, finding a chair that’s the right size for your body shape is pretty important, especially if you’re buying a pre-owned chair.
The chairs come in 3 sizes:
- Size A (small) — generally for people shorter, smaller people
- Size B (medium) — the most common size
- Size C (large) — generally for taller, larger people

Are There Cheaper Alternatives to the Aeron Chair?
Ok. We certainly understand that the Aeron Chair isn’t for everyone.
Obviously, many people (or the company budget) can’t or don’t want to afford the cost of the Aeron chair, whether it’s a new chair or a used chair.
Also, some people just don’t find the Aeron Chairs to be as comfortable as everyone says they are. And there is a lot of truth to that as comfort is specific to each individual and certain aspects of what makes an office chair comfortable are very subjective. And certainly, some people do not like the shape or design of the chair and prefer a different look.
There are many Aeron chair knock-offs, some better than others. If you’re looking for an alternative to the classic Aeron chair, you’ll want to do a little research.
Are you looking for the classic mesh back and seat (sometimes called “woven suspension membrane”)? Do you like the side to side turning movements or the tilt back features?
Aeron alternatives include:
- Haworth Zody chair
- Embody by Herman Miller
- Sayl Chair by Herman Miller
- Steelcase Leap Chair
- Alera Elusion Swivel Chair
