Global designer and furniture company Herman Miller has revealed plans to enhance its retail presence with new concept stores. 

The first new retail destinations will be entirely dedicated to home office solutions, such as task chairs and other related high-performance products.   

Herman Miller’s new stores will offer home office product categories, including its performance seating chairs. 

The company’s seating chair is an award-winning product, which features capabilities that contribute to health-positive benefits while offering comfort. 

The first stores should open in late autumn.   

Herman Miller Retail president Debbie Propst said: “We are excited to reveal our first retail destinations dedicated to offering customers the opportunity to explore the quality and breadth of Herman Miller’s work from home solutions first-hand.  

“We are currently seeing unprecedented sales across these categories.  

“The stores are a direct response to our collective need, which has been building over time and heightened by the pandemic, for more versatile home environments and our customer’s desire to test drive these highly considered products in person.”

Herman Miller Retail includes Herman Miller, Design Within Reach and HAY, and posted “strongest quarterly financial performance to date” despite the pandemic. 

Propst added: “The office will always remain important, but a more distributed workforce – and the impact of Covid-19 – is accelerating this paradigm shift quite broadly, thus increasing the need of our domestic spaces to support evolving day-to-day work and life behaviours.”
