Total Back Support + Knit Comfort

Comfort is not about your chair—it’s about you. We designed the Fern office chair to take its cues from you. Just like the human body, Fern has a strong, yet flexible internal spine at its core. This unique structure and an innovative suspension system give you total back support from your neck down. There’s no hard outer frame or edges to get in the way of your comfort as Fern responds to your every movement. Integrated ergonomic controls create a premium sitting experience in a clean, elegant design. The addition of a lofted-knit back offers even more luxury with a plush, breathable extra layer of comfort, as well as greater dimension and an elevated, customized look.

Please note: This model does not include a lumbar adjustment or forward tilt.

Fern Digital Knit Office Chair

Worth the wait !!!

I had the chair delivered after +3 weeks of ordering.
I was skeptical about not having the lumbar support BUT I didn't need it.
My posture was adjusted the moment I sat on the chair.
The chair is worth the wait and money.
the only con is the quality assurance and finishing.
Found fingerprints all over the base of the chair but was easy to clean.
sadly, the chair left arm lever was broken and missing from the shipping box.

Hello Younes,
I'm sorry to hear your Fern arm adjustment tab was broken during shipment. Please be sure to contact our customer service at store@haworth.com and they will send you a new set of arm inserts. These are very easy to swap out.

So comfy even for a big heavy guy

Such a comfortable chair it really feels like I’m sitting on a high quality hammock! I’m a really big heavy guy and most chairs give me lower pain but this one has been great in supporting me! Their service does need a lot of work though

Very nice chair

The most comfortable chair! Period.

I sold my Herman Miller Embody after I struggled to get comfortable in that chair, not to mention I could feel the seat base while sitting in the Embody and the backrest never felt right even while being patient over months and constant adjustments. The Haworth Fern in my opinion is the perfect balance of a great quality lounge / productivity chair. I have zero complaints other than the arm rests are a bit a loose and easily move while getting out of the chair. The Haworth Fern cradles you and has enough adjustments and flexibility that even the pickiest of buyers can find a setting that works well for them.

My chair was the quick ship baltic blue in the digital knit fabric.

I'am going to purchase another one for a family member, if your hesitant don't be this was worth every single penny for me.
