      Customer comments about Nelson (TM) Swag Leg Chair in Black by Herman Miller®:

      We were also interested in similar chair with wooden legs. We are glad we got this one. The integrated arm rest design provides additional comfort and the stainless leg also adds the sleekness, too. A bit concerned the design might look too abstract and contemporary among the other furnitures we have, but it actually added an interesting accent to the whole ambiance. The end piece of each leg has an adjustable pin that helps the chair hold the floor securely even on the uneven surface. Overall, quite satisfying.

      Customer comments about Nelson (TM) Swag Leg Chair in White by Herman Miller®:

      This is an excellent dining chair, surprisingly comfortable for sitting at the table well-beyond a meal to relax. Although I sometimes use my dining table for computer work, this chair does not provide the upright back support necessary for desk-like activities. I would recommend this as a dining or living room chair rather than a desk chair.

        I am using these as dining room chairs. They look beautiful and are very comfortable. With the back designed, they allow the person to rock as they sit. Everyone that has sat in them love them!

        I purchased the Swag Leg Chair for a desk that sits behind my sofa (Andre sofa) and it looks great. It's an art piece all on its own, and so unexpected. The white eco- friendly chair is a great contrast in the room, and as comfortable as most traditional desk chairs. The chair doesn't have wheels, but the style makes up for it!
