Just last week Herman Miller introduced The Herman Miller Collection and, luckily for you, the pieces contained within this collection are all part of the Herman Miller Holiday Sale starting November 19th.
But what is The Herman Miller Collection?
“Drawing on George Nelson’s timeless vision of the ‘continuing creation of a permanent collection designed to meet fully the requirements for modern living,’ we introduce the Herman Miller Collection. This comprehensive portfolio offers a breadth and depth of products to furnish complete environments in a variety of settings, both elegant and casual, across a range of prices.
Each piece is considered in relation to the whole–the rooms where it will be used and the people who will use it. Living and Lounge offerings welcome rest as well as work. Meeting and Dining pieces navigate the moments when we gather around a table to share food or ideas. Working and Storage solutions address the technology and flexibility needed to achieve work goals now. Outdoor furnishings prepped to withstand the elements and crafted using the same design philosophy allow work and play to effortlessly move beyond the indoors.
Within the Collection, you’ll find updated archival pieces, furnishings from partners who share our values, and new designs from today’s top talent–a bridge between Herman Miller’s past, present, and future. Seen together, in every type of environment, you realize they speak the same language, and are built from the same set of timeless design principles that have always guided Herman Miller. Problems are solved together. Beauty, then, naturally follows.”
