expiredHerman Miller takes rare 15% off world’s best office chairs + desks, inc. award-winning Aeron, all shipped free

Herman Miller’s award-winning ergonomic chairs and desks are the gold standard in offices across the world, thanks to their industry-leading designs, long warranties, and retained value — all reasons they’re typically not discounted. Today, Herman Miller has launched a holiday sale, offering a rare, major 15% discount across everything in its online store, plus free shipping. Key Herman Miller reseller OfficeDesigns is passing through the same excellent 15% and free shipping deal, too. This is a perfect chance to save hundreds of dollars on top-quality office furniture, including the iconic Aeron, Eames, and Embody chairs, Envelop desks, beautiful sofas, and “working art” office storage solutions.

To put this sale in perspective, the top-selling Aeron Chair — normally $729 — can now be had for under $620 through Herman Miller, a savings of nearly $110. If you want to go basic, OfficeDesigns is offering an entry-level Aeron (shown above) for $577.15, a savings of over $100, with 15% off of all models including the gorgeous Executive versions with polished bases, leather armpads, and PostureFit backs. I personally use and strongly recommend Aeron chairs, as they’re incredibly comfortable, impressively adjustable, and offer superb back support.

Here are some of the other great deals from the Herman Miller and OfficeDesigns sales:

LEGO nailed the famous Ghostbusters Firehouse set

Brace yourself Ghostbuster fans, you’re getting a new LEGO set this winter. The Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters (set 75827) will be available in January as a full-on representation of the famous Hook & Ladder 8 in New York City. LEGO really nailed it, as you can see in the pictures. The details appear to be spot-on and the figurines look the part. Nine characters are included: Peter, Winston, Ray, Egon, Janine Melnitz, Dana Barrett, Louis Tully, the library ghost, and a zombie ghost driver.

This set isn’t going to come cheap, however. LEGO has set a $350 price tag for the 4,634 piece firehouse reproduction. Of course, the LEGO version of the Ghostbuster’s Ecto-1 is already on the market and worth a look for this holiday season.
