awesome chair, quality product

Kim from Taocma, WA– Verified Buyer

my wife and i have been looking for months for the perfect chair for our den. when i saw the Setu i knew it was perfect. showed it to my wife and she said perfect.
chair arrived promptly and safely. simple to assemble, fit was nice. we love how it looks and fits our modern style house perfectly. the chair is very comfortable and we can't be happier.
the other chairs we considered were not near the quality nor the comfort level. but they were less expensive. Setu was much more expensive but well worth it to get a quality, comfortable chair that we know will last a long time.
thank you,

Love my new chair!

Mary from Oldsmar, FL– Verified Buyer

It's true the mesh fabric hugs and supports your body every way you move. And who can say anything but exceptional for Herman Miller design. Looks super cool in my office, not stuffy and ugly like some leatherfaux leather chairs. Must admit I wish I had got the rolling feet but I was trying to stay under budget. I got the white frame with gray seat.

Best chair ever!

Patti from Ocean City, NJ– Verified Buyer

We bought this chair in white and green as a replacement to a more traditional black office chair. It's crazy comfortable and looks amazing. Much smaller profile and the design is really clean. Thinking of buying another.

luv it!

YULIYA from Bethesda, MD– Verified Buyer

I love this chair with baby blue mesh seating. I ordered it with a silver hardware and no armrests. The price is high, but lower than on other websites for the product with the same features. After applying a coupon discount and the rewards, I was very happy with the price I paid.Very stylish, light, and extremely comfortable.
