    We're a Steelcase Authorized Retailer

    In your search for the ideal ergonomic gear to add to your office, you might come across Steelcase products that seem cheaper than they should be. Most of these office chairs and accessories are refurbished, giving you a not-so-new seating solution that can be open to mechanical flaws and defects sooner than a new Steelcase chair might be.

    Human Solution is an authorized Steelcase retailer, delivering to you the newest and most up-to-date ergo-friendly products from Steelcase, featuring full manufacturer warranties, protecting them from wear and tear, and giving you recourse if something ever does go wrong with your office chair, ergonomic desk, task lighting, or monitor arm in the future.

    1. The Leap and Amia seem pretty similar. Should I spend more on the Leap?

      The Leap and Amia do share many great traits. The Leap provides a slightly more supportive backrest; however, many customers (and THS employees) actually prefer the Amia Ergonomic Chair. You really can't go wrong with either, but the Amia is a very comfortable chair at a great price.

    2. How much assembly is required?

      Your Steelcase Amia will come to you fully assembled.

    3. Does this chair come with a headrest?

      The Steelcase Amia is not available with a headrest.

    4. Is the Amia suitable for shorter people?

      Yes, the Amia will fit both short and tall users comfortably! One associate here is 5'1" and she said the Amia is the most comfortable chair she has ever sat in!

    5. How should I clean my Amia chair?

      If you spill anything on your chair, soak up the stain quickly before it sets. Use upholstery cleaner for a water-based stain or dry cleaning solution for an oil-based stain. Leather is the hardiest upholstery option, as most stains will wipe up with mild soap and a damp cloth.

    6. How does the 30-day guarantee work?

      If you don't like your Amia for any reason, you can return it to Steelcase hassle-free within the first 30 days. You won't even have to pay for shipping. Just contact our Support Team to set up the return.

      Highly recommended!

      Posted by Baper on Apr 20th 2011

      In spite of its modest price, this chair has every conceivable adjustment: seat height and depth, arm width and height, lumbar adjustment, and tension on the back. The materials used in its manufacture such as the fabric on the seat and back, and the metal and plastic in the frame and base are of high quality. The chair is quite sturdy and suitable for any size person, large or small. If adjusted properly, it will improve your office posture. I'm very happy with this chair - no regrets here.

      Excellent chair; may not be the best for mid-back issues

      Posted by Adam S on Mar 25th 2011

      After doing research on this site and others and trying out several chairs in shops, I narrowed my selection to the Steelcase Leap and Amia. I ended up picking the Amia because it seemed like the best value for money.

      It's a high quality, comfortable chair with good features. I have a friend who has one and loves it, and the Amia will be a great choice for many people.

      Unfortunately though after using it daily for 2 months, the Amia is not working out well for me personally. I have trouble with my mid-back, and while the Amia provides excellent lumbar support, I find it irritates my mid-back more than my former, inexpensive office chair did. This is likely due to my specific mid-back issues, so others may not have any trouble. But since I work on the computer all day it's a big problem for me.

      When I slide my hand across the back of the chair the padding sort of dips in the mid-back area. I'm looking for some kind of pillow to provide additional midback support, but I may end up having to buy a different chair.

      Game changer

      Posted by Geoff on Nov 11th 2010

      I didn't really think I would care much about the supposed best feature of this chair, which is the flexibility of positions that the arms offer. Well, the hype is grounded. These arms add so much to the comfort level. I bought it mainly for lumbar support, which is definitely quite good, but I came to write about the arms. BTW the chair came in an enormous box that would not fit through most doorways and the good natured fedex man had a laugh watching me take the chair out of the box before bringing it inside. It was conveniently completely pre-assembled though. Oh, those arrmmms...

      Perfect for Petites!

      Posted by Monica on Sep 20th 2010

      After freelancing in front of a computer for thirteen years as a writer and manuscript editor, I finally broke down and got a chair that would provide proper support. I have suffered from neck, shoulder, and back problems because of countless hours sitting in a cheap office chair. I've only had the Steelcase Amia for 48 hours and I can already tell a difference. It's perfect for me because I am 4'11" and just over 100 lbs. Amia's adjustability makes this chair feel custom made for me. I love it.

      Living in my chair

      Posted by Kathryn on Apr 28th 2009

      I bought the Amia chair because the nice lady at thehumansolution said that it would address the physical pain I was enduring from spending long hours in a cheap chair from Office Depot. She was right. I live in this chair, hours and hours, days on end. and I feel just as good after many hours as when I first sat down in the morning. You've already read about all the little features and I will attest, all that is true. AND this chair is not only comfortable but quite elegant in appearance. After a month in the Amia chair, I can honestly tell you that this is a lovely, comfortable, adaptable, spiffy little chair and worth every dime. From the first moment this chair rolled out of the (well-packed) box, I never looked back. Buy it. You'll be glad.

      Me and My Amia

      Posted by Jan on Apr 9th 2009

      I must admit, I really wanted a Leap chair as I had one at my previous job but I just couldn't afford it. When I called the sales rep suggested the Amia and said I might even like it more than the Leap. Still, I was a tad disappointed when I placed my order.

      Well I've had my Amia for 2 weeks now and I'm so very happy Kara talked me into this chair because she was so right! I truly love this chair! It is comfortable, even when I sit all day. I highly recommend anyone looking for a comfortable chair to check out the Amia. This is very definitely a comfortable chair and an amazing value given it's a lot cheaper than the Leap. Thank you again.
