About the Manufacturer

Steelcase began in 1912 as The Metal Office Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They received their first patent in 1914 for a steel wastebasket -- a major innovation at a time when straw wastebaskets were a major office fire hazard. That led to metal desks, and they've led the way with product and service innovations ever since. Today, their portfolio of solutions address the three core elements of an office environment: interior architecture, furniture and technology.

Awesome Chair

from San Jose, CA on 12/28/2014 – Verified Buyer

I love this chair/stool. I do not have anything negative to say about this. You pay for what you get. The only thing is that this chair arrived with some blemishes (scratches), don't know if it is Steel Case's fault, but not enough for me to return it. Overall I love this chair.

Nice Stool

from Clinton Township, MI on 05/14/2012 – Verified Buyer

So far so good. Stool has good adjust-ability, well built. No major negatives. However if I could change anything I would like it to have the ability to go 2'' lower. I know this puts the stool at a chair height but I sit at different heights during the day. I have found it helps my back. I knew when I purchased the stool it did not go as low as a chair so this is more of a wish than a criticism. Having a web type seat verse fabric would be a bit more comfortable. Overall a very good stool!
