Our Seat Winner

    Comments about Steelcase Amia Chair, Fabric:

    We had a contest at work where we brought in 5 different chairs and had various shapes and sizes try them out. The Amia came out as the winner. For corporate solutions they provided us with a bunch of fabric options, which was nice!

    While there have been some complaints (people are resitant to change) the overwhelming majority love their new chairs. We have had them in place now for about 3 years with no repairs needed.

    Because there have been a few complaints, I can't quite give this chair the five stars, but it's definitely a solid four.

      Pain in the Back

      By Eric

      from Fort Wayne, IN

      Pros

      • Attractive Design

      Cons

      • Lacks Adjustability
      • Poor Quality
      • Uncomfortble

      Best Uses

        Comments about Steelcase Amia Chair, Fabric:

        Comfortable for the first 5 min then starts becoming painful. Seat lacks back height adjustment related to seat base, and only allows for the back to be upright(too straight) or full tilt (too far back). The top of the back is poorly padded and falls across the shoulder blades becoming quite painful over time. It's sitting in the corner now since it's unusable. and my company doesn't allow returns. Avoid this chair!

              Use this at work and at home (Bought one after 6 months use at work to replace an inferior home office chair). Very sturdy, with good lumbar support and adaptability. Good value, when you consider this will last far longer than 200$ chairs from office supply stores. I highly recommend this chair for programmers/developers.

                    Comments about Steelcase Amia Chair, Fabric:

                    After trying out a Leap chair and finding the lumbar support to be too hard (merely a hard plastic insert with sporadic movement on adjustment) and not well designed I tried out the infamous Aeron. After realizing -despite my dislike for the Leap's lumbar support- the Leap was a better chair, and the Aeron is a completely over-hyped product in many ways; I was attracted to the Amia chair. The design and less curved back support along with the improved lumbar design seemed like the perfect mix.

                    Turns out I was right. This is the chair I will be keeping and immediately thought "this is a quality, well designed product... and comfortable chair". This is an excellent chair. If in the future Steelcase were to make a chair like the Amia, with the recline found in the Leap (plus associated adjustments) it'd be simply amazing - not to be beat.

                        Yes, the Amia chair has what we called the Synchro-tilt feature, this means that the chair back and seat are synchronized to move in a 2:1 ratio. When the user leans back, the seat rises only half as much, allowing the userʼs feet to remain flat on the floor

                        Hi Steve. With our hassle-free return policy, you have a 30 day period of time where if you decide you do not like the arms, you can return the chair and reorder it without arms, that way you are not paying for the removed arm option that you do not have in use. We also have a new No-Risk Chair Demo program for our Amia chair you may be interested in:

                    • Q:

                      I saw above you're offering a demo butt test? I run a recording studio and have a need for an 8+ hr chair. I have multiple back and nerves problems and really need a good chair. I own an Aeron (cuts my circulation off), and have owned Body Bilt chairs and others.

                      I've sat on a Leap (didn't love the seat cushion), Amia for a few minutes and a Think. I liked the arm rests on the Leap and Amia. The Think's weren't as soft. But I liked the feel of the Think.

                      Is there a demo program available?

                        It is very much a matter of preference, but all our fabrics are very durable. The Buzz 2 fabrics, as you mentioned, have an even longer warranty and are comfortable and extremely durable.
