Chair Demo Program

Before you outfit your office, take our chairs for a spin.

Test Steelcase chairs before bringing them to your business. Here's how it works:

  • Contact our customer service team to complete the process
  • We'll send a brand new chair (with black fabric and base) to your doorstep. Keep the chair and the box for 14 days
  • If you like it, we can create an order for your chairs. If you don't, we send you a shipping label and we take the chair back. (Shipping back to us is free, too.)
