Questions & Answers
Herman Miller ® Eames RAR Molded Plastic Rocking Chair
smaller than expected
samantha from cincinnati, OH– Verified Buyer
I've always been a fan of Eames furniture, and was excited to get this when it came. But I'll admit--I was surprised when I opened the box at just how small it is. I thought for a moment that I'd accidentally ordered the children's size instead.
Comfy little chair

Love the rocker, I use it in my nursery for feeding the baby and it wipes clean in the event of spills.

The product was delivered quickly and arrived in perfect condition. It is the perfect compliment to our living room. No assembly made it easy to take out and drop into place.

Great rocker! Comfortable but no head rest. Looks very modern. 4 stars because of the low back but doesn't really bother me anymore.
In love with a chair.

I got this chair for my friend's nursery in red and it looks so cute! Its very comfortable considering its plastic and fairly small (narrow) so it fits well in a small space.
Nice rocking chair
CK from Minneapolis, MN– Verified Buyer
I like modern furniture so I knew what I was getting. I'll be using it in a nursery now and later it will go anywhere in the house. Its not the most comfortable rocker in the world (no cushion), but I really the modern look.. I ordered the sparrow color and its nice. I ordered a discounted rocker as it was "out of box" so it was 20% off and it came in perfect condition, with free 2 day shipping. I'm happy with the product. Others commented that the rocker is very short. I didn't realize how short it was until it came. Would be difficult for a very tall person.

Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.
George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:
While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
