The Herman Miller Story
Herman Miller, founded in 1905 as the Star Furniture Co. in Zeeland. Michigan, is an American manufacturer of mid-century modern furniture as well as modern home and office furniture. Under the guidance of George Nelson, Star Furniture became one of the most influential producers of modern furniture—collaborating with Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, and textile designer Alexander Girard. In 1960 the company name was changed to Herman Miller, Inc. The company’s focus on furniture designed for people continues to today.

Fun Facts About Herman Miller
Herman Miller was a Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law D.J. De Pree purchase the Star Furniture Company in 1923. Because Herman Miller had a reputation as a man of integrity, his son-in-law decided to name the company after him.
Noteworthy Products from Herman Miller
Take your pick of top-design products from the Herman Miller furniture line. Our favorite is the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. This timeless classic, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, was released in 1956 after years of experimenting with molding plywood. Originally, the chair had a veneer of Brazilian rosewood on top of five thin layers of plywood. Today, the Eames Lounge Chair remains an iconic Herman Miller chair and uses natural cherry, walnut or Santos Palisander rosewood (a sustainably grown wood with patterns similar to the original rosewood).
