HERMAN MILLER OPENS FIRST RETAIL STORE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
The global design leader introduces a new way to experience performance seating, home office solutions and more in our nation’s capital
Herman Miller, the global leader in innovative design and furnishing solutions and a part of the MillerKnoll collective (NASDAQ: MLHR), today announced the opening of a new store in Washington, D.C., marking the brand’s sixteenth retail location in the U.S. Herman Miller’s retail concept allows consumers to experience the benefits of sitting well first-hand and invites them to test drive products across the brand’s award-winning performance seating, workspace, gaming and lifestyle portfolios in a new way.
Situated within the historic Union Market District, the new location supports Herman Miller’s commitment to helping customers make informed and confident purchasing decisions for how they live, work and play – whether you are leading webinars, gaming with friends, or taking a well-deserved respite from a long workday.
“Optimizing the well-being of our customers through problem-solving designs that can help improve health and productivity is at the heart of what we do,” said Debbie Propst, President of Global Retail for MillerKnoll. “D.C. is an exciting city made up of innovators and world leaders and we look forward to welcoming the community into our new store to discover Herman Miller’s offerings firsthand.”
Expertly designed to assist customers to make informed and confident purchasing decisions, the 1,560 square-foot store has dedicated performance specialists on-hand to help shoppers discover the right solutions for their individual needs.
On-site, visitors can test and compare Herman Miller’s innovative solutions all backed by decades of ergonomic research and developed to support long-lasting, health-positive benefits including postural distribution of weight, a key to healthy circulation and focus. Customers can also experience the offerings’ adjustment capabilities such as breathable suspension materiality and backrest adjustments, along with customizable finishes and stylish details for more recent introductions such as the Embody Chair, and classic pieces such as the Eames Lounge and Ottoman. If customers prefer to browse the collections online, the chat function on the Herman Miller website allows shoppers to experience the stores virtually through a personalized one-on-one video call feature.
“People deserve to feel supported and motivated during the duration of their day, whether that is at the office, at home or a hybrid of the two,” added Propst. “We’re listening to our customer base and continuing to expand our network of retail locations to ensure everyone can receive guidance and support to create their ideal home.”
While some retailers shift away from brick-and-mortar stores, MillerKnoll Global Retail – comprised of Herman Miller, Knoll, Design Within Reach, Fully, HAY and Muuto, has taken a different approach with its omni-channel expansion strategy.
Herman Miller in Union Market District is now open Monday–Saturday: 10am–7pm; Sunday: 11am–5pm, at 1268 4th Street NE, Washington, DC 20002.
