    Perfect for the nursery. The chair is small, low, and light, so it fits perfectly in the small space we have. It's also easy to move around to the LR for extra seating.

      Customer comments about Eames® Molded Plastic Rocker with Maple Base in White by Herman Miller®:

      This chair is beautiful and looks great in a modern nursery (ours has birch and white furniture). However, this chair is extremely uncomfortable to sit in, even for a few minutes so we had to return it. It is not a practical choice for a nursery chair to sit in either alone or with a baby. It is also very small and low to the ground, making it hard to get out of. It is lightweight, which may be a plus, but could also make the chair unstable or dangerous in a child's room. Overall, despite how great it looked, it was just too painful to justify keeping especially for the high price for a plastic chair.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Someone called to schedule delivery within 24 hours as promised and delivery was available within five days or so. However, when I called to return the chair I was told I needed to wait ten days for the chair to be picked up. I was dissatisfied with this and asked to speak with a supervisor because I thought it was fair that we be given an adjustment to the non-refunable $89 delivery fee and was told there was no one I could speak to. Overall, I am not satisfied with the customer service as far as the return goes.

        Customer comments about Eames® Molded Plastic Rocker with Maple Base in Black by Herman Miller®:

        We were concerned with exemplary style & craftsmanship when searching for a rocking chair that would look great, as well as be very sturdy for my daughter's young children. The Eames molded chair works perfectly for those 2 qualities.
        Although it is smaller then we imagined when ordering, the chair is comfortable even for my 6 ft+ son-in-law.
        The rocker is used in their family/livingroom space & I found it to be just perfect for rocking my 5 month granddaughter to sleep!

        Service and delivery comments:

        My Room and Board experience was top notch, from the ordering of our chair through delivery to the warehouse & self pick-up. The staff at either end was personable & very helpful.

          Customer comments about Eames® Molded Plastic Rocker with Maple Base in Aqua Sky by Herman Miller®:

          I am only 5'4" but I found this chair to be too low. Also, I was expecting the back rest to be higher so you can rest your head on the chair while you rock the baby. The higher part of the back rest doesn't even reach my shoulders. This is not a chair to use to nurse your baby every day, but it could work for sporadic use (read a book, etc.)

            I absolutely love this rocking chair! I used it in my son's nursery room and it looked fabulous in there. I recently moved it into the living room and it looks incredible there as well! This chair is very comfortable, sleek, and durable. It completely changes the feel of the room, in my opinion. Now I want one in every room!

              I've had a few purchases over time with [...] and she has been super helpful with finding products and making recommendations with pieces that we have at home. Whether they're piece from Room and Board or elsewhere. She has or at least conveys similar taste, has knowledge of mid-century classics and makes it easy to feel good about a purchase. In general I haven't had any poor experience of bad service in any of the three Room and Board locations. We also appreciate the vingette rooms which help inspire and visualize the possiblities.
