How heavy is an Aeron Chair?
There is a connotation that high-quality furniture weighs a ton because they use top-of-the-line parts and components. But is this the case for this popular Herman Miller chair?
There are two things you need to consider when checking for the weight of your Aeron Chair, and those are the version and the size.
The Aeron Classic, which is no longer in production, weighs about two pounds more than the Aeron Remastered. The Aeron Classic used more metal components compared to the Aeron Remastered.
The Aeron Remastered, the version sold by Herman Miller from 2016 up to the present, looks more modern, the mechanism looks sleeker, and the reduction of metal used means it is lighter.

How Much Weight Can an Aeron Chair Hold?
The size of an Aeron Chair isn’t just about how tall or how wide it is. It also dictates the maximum weight the chair can support.
According to Herman Miller, Sizes B and C can support up to 350 pounds of weight. Meanwhile, the Aeron Chair in Size A can support a maximum of 300 pounds.
How to Choose an Aeron Chair
Though an Aeron Chair can support 300 to 350 lbs, you still need to get the correct size suitable for your height.
Herman Miller has a height-weight comparison chart that lets you see which Aeron Chair size will suit you best.
For people weighing 120 lbs and below and whose height does not exceed 5’2”, it is recommended that they get the Size A.
Size B suits most people as it can accommodate people weighing 130 lbs to 350 lbs with a height range starting from 5’2” to 6’7”.
For Size C, you must be over 5’3” tall and weigh 160 lbs or more.
If you’re in between sizes, the safest option to choose is Size B, as it can accommodate a huge range in terms of weight and height.
