Simple Scheduled Delivery

Simple Scheduled Delivery is for folks that don't mind carrying furniture. The shipper will call prior to delivery to arrange an appointment, but the driver will not bring the furniture inside.

  • Typical transit time is 4-7 business days.
  • Larger/Freight items:
    • For Residential deliveries, the shipper will contact you via phone call/email at least 24 hours in advance - to schedule a delivery appointment window (typically a 4 hour window). This is when your order does not ship with UPS/Fedex. Most shippers will have online tracking available as well.
    • Business deliveries to companies/commercial addresses will typically not come with a pre-arranged appointment, but will arrive during standard business hours. Please contact Smart Furniture or the shipper if your business address has special scheduling needs.
  • Smaller items + office chairs will typically ship via UPS/Fedex with a tracking number and online monitoring, but not a phone call and delivery appointment (UPS/Fedex do have scheduling programs with sign up on their websites). This can include office chairs and other products requiring assembly.
  • The driver will deliver the shipment at the ground level/front of your house or in your apartment's regular delivery area. They will not bring the furniture inside or carry it up stairs.
  • If you live in an apartment, the doorman can accept delivery on your behalf.
  • For Larger/Freight shipment (non UPS/Fedex) You must be present at the scheduled delivery appointment to inspect the delivery items and sign paperwork if any damage is visible.
    • We'll be sure to assist with any damage that may occur. Please call Smart Furniture right away if any issues arise.
  • Any questions? Chat or call! We're happy to help!

Herman Miller Sayl Side Chair with Sled Base
designed by Yves Behar

Herman Miller Sayl Side Chair with Sled BaseAt A Glance:
The Sayl Side Chair with Sled Base is the lighter, go-anywhere little brother of Herman Miller's Sayl Task Chair, the latest creation from the offices of Yves Behar, a San Fransisco designer whose reputation precedes him as a world-class designer. While not achieving the frameless, suspension-bridge-like design of the task chair, the side chair is beautiful in its own right, unique, and priced affordably.

What's To Like:
Its sweeping, squared-off back and low-gravity frame. The Sayl Side Chair is easily one of Herman Miller's most easy-on-the-eyes side chairs. And at $384.00 for the Sled Base version ($349.00 for the 4-Leg Base), the price is not what you'd expect to pay for an Yves Behar design.

What's Not to Like:
The Sayl Side Chair is a bit on the small side, so if you need an expansive seat and seat back, you might want to look elsewhere. Aside from that, there isn't much to say. It's a nice side chair for a nice price.

The Bottom Line:
This is a chair with the looks of a piece of sculpture, and its curving, relaxed back feels great to lean into. It doesn't get much better than that.


The Sayl Side Chair with Sled Base Features:

    • Suspension Back for firm but yielding support

    • 92 percent recyclable environmentally responsible construction

    • Fabric-upholstered seat for comfort

    • For carpet, choose glides or none; for use on hard floors, choose nylon glides

The Herman Miller Sayl Side is also known by the following manufacturer Item Numbers: AS5, AS5SSN, AS5SSP.

Materials & Measurements

Materials:
The Sayl Side Chair has an upholstered seat with foam padding. The Sayl Chair's overall components are constructed from plastic, steel, foam, and textile. Glides are vinyl.

All base finishes are cast aluminum.

Overall: 34.25" h x 24" w x 22.5" d

Environmental Information

MBDC Cradle to Cradle Certified
  • Greenguard Certified as low-emitting product that meets indoor air quality standards

  • MBDC Silver Cradle to Cradle Certified as part of a closed-loop materials system

  • Up to 92 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life; plastic components are identified with an ASTM recycling code

  • Greenguard Certified
  • Manufactured using 100 percent green power free of water and air emissions

  • The plant where Sayl is manufactured is an ISO 14001-certified site
  • The Sayl Side Chair carries MBDC Cradle to Cradle certification, meaning that at every step of the design and manufacturing process, it has been made as environmentally friendly as possible. The first step in the process is a chemical evaluation of the materials used in the chair. At the deepest level possible, Herman Miller inspects their products for any possibly harmful element within them. Doing this ensures that every product sold by Herman Miller, including the Sayl Side Chair, is totally safe for the air, for the environment, and for the quality of your workspace.

    After that, each product is evaluated on whether or not it's easy to take apart. Because products like the Sayl Side Chair are so often recyclable when broken down into their component parts, making that breakdown easy is essential to actually getting the products to end up in a recycling barrel, and not a landfill or a dump. The Sayl Side Chair is easy to take apart, easy to recycle, and therefore much more likely to have a negligible environmental impact.

    Recycling is obviously important to the environment, and to Herman Miller. That's why the Sayl Side Chair is 92 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life. That's a huge number, and it far outpaces the competition in terms of sustainable, recyclable manufacturing processes. Much of the material used to build the chair has itself been recycled.

    Comments about Herman Miller Sayl Side Chair, Sled Base:

    We actually use these as dining chairs with the Eames table. The sled base has some give that allows for a rocking chair feel that is quite pleasant.

    Pros- Well built, unique looking, very comfortable, web seat back cradles you

    Cons- I was mistaken and thought the web back would be fabric. It is an industrial style rubber that is very durable and comfortable. I was just expecting something different

    - The painted frame legs can chip if pushed against a metal table leg too hard. In hindsight I would have gotten the polished aluminum option instead.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The Smart Furniture team is the most polite and customer oriented group I have ever come across. I will only purchase my furniture products from them. The best company I have ever dealt with in my life!
